Give your sweetie a unique gift this Valentine's Day, and show your love for animals at the same time by taking part in a special adoption opportunity being offered by the Buffalo Zoo.
For $12.50, your loved one will receive an animal adoption certificate, a chocolate heart from Fowler's Chocolates, and two guest passes to the zoo, valid until Dec. 31 (a $20-plus value). Choose from an "Amorous Anteater," "Cuddly Capuchin," "Endearing Elephant," "Gorgeous Gorilla," "Loyal Lion," "Terrific Tiger," "Gentle Giraffe," "Lovable Leopard," "Sweet Sea Lion," "Tender Toucan," "Trustworthy Turtle" or "Zany Zebra." Participants can also use their imagination and come up with another selection that best represents their Valentine's personality!
All proceeds benefit the zoo's "Adopt-an-Animal" program. Adoptions are available now by calling 716-995-6131 or by visiting at www.buffalozoo.org. To ensure a timely delivery, orders must be received by Feb. 7. Adoptions are also available for purchase in person at the Zootique Gift Shop, which is open Wednesday through Sunday, from 10 a.m. to 4 p.m.
The zoo is located at 300 Parkside Ave.
