Food for animals

Would you like to bring some food for our animals?

Collaborate and provide food for the animals of the Zoo of the Pyrenees.

What type of food do they need?

  • Dry bread
  • Raw meat
  • Fruits and vegetables

Some of the animals living in the refuge have a severed wing due to a collision with a power line, others have been shot… They will never ever run again, nor fly, etc.

We, humans, have already caused them enough problems. Now it is our turn to demonstrate that we are not indifferent to their suffering.

What is waste for you
can be an exquisite meal for our animals.

Food behavior statistic: Each person in Spain spends €250 a year on food which, in the end, lands in a waste bin.

That’s €1000 per family!

 In other words: each of us throws ½ kg of perfectly edible food in the trash every week.

It would be a blessing for our animals to receive these leftovers.

What type of food do we need? And in what condition it should be?

Food for animals

Dry bread

Dried bread and even the crumbs that fall when you cut the bread.   It can’t be mouldy bread, it could seriously affect the health of our animals.

Fruits for animals

Fruits, vegetables and nuts

They must not be necessarily in perfect conditions. If, for example, the apples have worms in them, it is a feast for the squirrel. But under no circumstances can they be mouldy.



Raw meat and also large bones with some meat on them.   It may be past the use-by date,   but   it cannot be rotten meat   or meat with maggots.

Transport of food for animals

How to get the food for animals to the Zoo of the Pyrenees?

Please note that our commitment to sustainability does not allow us to have too high a CO2   footprint linked to food transport.

Private persons

Private persons

Take advantage of your trip when you come to visit us to bring food for the animals.

For example:

  • You can ask your local bakery to keep dry bread for you.
  • At the greengrocer, the cauliflower leaves that they would normally throw away.

Restaurants and merchants

Get in touch with us.

If you are from el Solsonès or el Alt Urgell:

  • There are members of our team who come to work from these regions every day. They can pick up the food and bring it to the zoo.

If you live farther away:

  • Tell us where you are from and we will find a way to get the food for the animals to the Zoo of the Pyrenees.

Other ways of collaborating with the feeding of the animals

Feeding all the animals in the refuge is large expense for us. If you care about animals, join the «Friends of Wild Animals» group. It is a community of people who with €1 a month participate in the purchase of food.

If we could reach 1000 people joining the group, we would be able to   cover the basic costs   of feeding our animals.

Thank you my friend!
Your help means a lot to all of us.
