Buy the Animals Lunch!

Buy the Animals Lunch” Campaign to Run Through Labor Day BEGINS July 1, 2011

Help show your support for the animals at the Buffalo Zoo by buying them lunch!

Beginning Friday, July 1st until Sunday July 31st 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 or the Membership Satellite Office which is 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. monkey_eat_banana_md_wht02

With an annual grocery bill of more than $250,000, the Zoos’ Adopt an Animal program raises the funds needed to feed the 1,000 animal residents. In addition to the “Buy the Animals Lunch” campaign in June, animal adoptions are available year-round. Several categories with corresponding benefits are offered. Choose your own favorite animal to support or purchase a gift adoption to help make a difference!
