Many people wish they could donate, but just can’t afford to give all at once. Through payroll deduction it is easy to support the animals of Indigo Mountain.
If you want to help Indigo Mountain make a difference in each animal’s life here are a few ways to get involved:
We are a proud member of Community Shares of Colorado. Community Shares is a nonprofit federation that helps raise funds for over 110 Colorado based charities through workplace giving campaigns.
If you are a government employee you can donate through the Combined Federal Campaign. We participate through our membership with Community Shares.

If your employer is not a participating member of Community Shares of Colorado, but does run a United Way workplace campaign you can write Indigo Mountain in on the pledge form.
If you or your employer would like to learn more about workplace giving campaigns contact us at [email protected]
Some companies support nonprofit organizations by matching financial gifts from their employees. Other companies encourage their employees to volunteer their time, energy and talents to nonprofit organizations and will match the volunteer time with cash contributions.
Talk to your Human Resource Manager to find out what your company offers.
Businesses can lend the animals a hand by supporting Indigo Mountain. While some choose to make cash donations or company matching programs others give grants for projects or in-kind donations of services or goods.
Exclusive sponsorship of some habitats are available. Please contact management for donation levels.
When you adopt your favorite animal for yourself or a friend your contribution goes directly to the care and feeding of that animal.

Entertain the Animals!
Numerous studies have been completed and millions of dollars have been spent studying animal behavior and enrichment. Many behaviorists and scientists believe that behavior is a consequence of both genetic and environmental factors. Studies have shown that captive animals living in environments that are not equivalent to a wild environment result in the loss of many patterns of natural behavior.
At Indigo Mountain we feel it is both scientifically and morally sound to enrich the lives of the animals. We have found active animals are healthier and spend less time involved in unhealthy activities. Enrichment doesn’t just take up time during the day; it also boosts the animal’s confidence and sharpens problem-solving capabilities.
Wild animals fill their days with hunting or foraging for food and protecting their territories from predators. In captivity food and water are provided, territories are clearly defined, social groupings are stable and there are no predators to confront. Their days are full of free time. To keep intelligent or exploratory animals from becoming hostile, aggressive or neurotic it is important to provide new, entertaining and challenging activities. Enrichment can be elaborate or simple. It can range from mechanical lures, toys, agility centers, and playgounds to simple digging mounds.
Our Enrichment Sponsorship is yet another way you can get involved and help one animal’s life better. Your sponsorship will help us provide balls, Kongs, tugs, food logs, and various scents such as condiments and perfumes for olfactory enrichment to name only a few.
Our Enrichment Sponsorship is yet another way you can get involved and help one animal live a better life.
