Ladies Auxiliary of Wildlife Safari

Proudly supporting Wildlife Safari for 24 years!

Meet the Ladies Auxiliary of Wildlife Safari

Since the Ladies Auxiliary of Wildlife Safari (LAWS) was founded in 1995, this unwavering committee has supported both operational fundraising and, more recently, annual capital projects at Wildlife Safari. Originally founded to provide general support to the park, the modern LAWS select and raise funds for the major capital project each year.

From the Elephant Waterhole, to the Wildlife Safari Cheetah Breeding Program, to a fully-functioning animal hospital, critical new housing for wildlife and beyond, it’s impossible to go anywhere in the park without encountering something that LAWS has provided instrumental support for.

Special Thanks to our current
LAWS Committee Members: 

Tonya Theiss-Skrip, Chair

2020 LAWS Auction Announcement

Given the current situation in Oregon, we are unable to confidently plan for this 300+ person event and abide by social distancing requirements. So, it is with a heavy heart that we have decided to cancel this year’s LAWS Auction.

This event has been Wildlife Safari’s signature fundraising event for a quarter of a century and has been the fuel behind many of our park’s improvements: the Elephant Waterhole, our Animal Health Center, the Cheryl Ford Event Center and more. If you would still like to make a donation to the Wildlife Safari you may do so HERE.

The LAWS Auction will be back next year on September 10th, 2021.

Please contact for more information.
