Buffalo, NY– Help show your support for the animals at the Buffalo Zoo by buying them lunch!
Beginning Friday, July 1 until Sunday, July 31, 2011, you can add $1 to your gift, food or membership purchases at the Zoo. All proceeds will benefit the Adopt an Animal program and go toward the purchase of food for the Zoo’s animal residents.
Visitors can “buy the animals lunch” at the Zootique Gift Shop, Beastro concession stand and Guest Services Office located at the main gate on Parkside Ave. Those who support this campaign will receive an “I Helped Buy the Animals Lunch” heart-shaped card. After filling the card out with your name, you may opt to keep the card or have it displayed at the Zoo.
With an annual grocery bill of more than $250,000, the Zoo’s Adopt an Animal program raises the funds needed to feed the 1,200 animal residents. In addition to the “Buy the Animals Lunch” summer campaign, animal adoptions are available year-round.
