Donate Your Unwanted Items to the Buffalo Zoo Animals!

Want to help out some of the animals at the Zoo, but don’t know how? The animals have put together a wish list of some items they need (okay, their keepers wrote the list, but the animals will be super grateful to receive any of these items from you!) You might be able to find some of these items around your home. Some things, such as Kongs, and Jolly Balls can be found at your favorite pet store. Take a look at the list below to see what your favorite animals need!
