The first two people who offer the zoo a $500 donation will be able to hold the tiny animals and help with their wellness checks, spokeswoman Abigail Krause, director of marketing and communications at the Pueblo Zoo, told ABC News.

“It’s an opportunity for people to get an up-close look at what happens with otters and at a zoo,” Krause said. ”The mother, Freyja, has been very trusting of the keeper, but the amount of time people can have contact with them right now is once a week.”

The pups — two females and one male — were born on March 3 and now weigh a little more than a pound each, Krause said.

She expects the pups, which also need to be named, will make their public debuts this summer.
