Tops Shop For The Animals

August 10, 2019 @ 10:00 am - 2:00 pm

Supporting the Zoo has never been easier! Once again the Buffalo Zoo and Tops Friendly Markets have teamed up for the annual Shop for the Animals event. This Saturday, August 10, 2019, from 10:00 a.m. until 2:00 p.m., shoppers at participating Tops Friendly Markets locations will have the opportunity to purchase an extra grocery item for the Zoo to help keep the animals happy and healthy.

After selecting items from the Zoo’s grocery wishlist, which will be provided at each location, shoppers can leave their gift with a Zoo volunteer in the store lobby. All of these generous donations will then be used as special enrichment treats to promote the animals’ natural behaviors and to stimulate them physically and mentally.

Requested grocery items include whole grain, low sugar cereals; extracts, and spices; plastic toys, peanut butter, paper bags large and small as well as a variety of other items. Participating Tops locations include:

  • Tops Friendly Markets 2101 Elmwood Ave. Buffalo NY 14207
  • Tops Friendly Markets S 6150 South Park Ave. Hamburg NY 14075
  • Tops Friendly Markets 1740 Sheridan Dr. Buffalo NY 14223
  • Tops Friendly Markets 2351 Maple Rd. Williamsville NY 14221

Can’t make it to Tops on Saturday but want to give towards the care of the Zoo’s 1,000+ animals? Use the link below to make a tax-deductible donation that supports the well-being of animals like Koga, our powerful gorilla, and Scout, our handsome red panda!
