The Buffalo Zoo invites readers to show their support for the animals by buying them lunch.
Now through the end of July, you can add $1 to your food or membership purchases at the Buffalo Zoo. All proceeds will benefit the Adopt an Animal program and go toward the purchase of food for the animal residents.
Visitors can "buy the animals lunch" at the Beastro concession stand and the guest services office located at the Buffalo Zoo's main entrance. Those who support this campaign will receive an "I Helped Buy the Animals Lunch" card. After filling the card out, one may opt to keep it or have it displayed at the zoo.
With an annual grocery bill of more than $250,000, the Buffalo 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. Several categories with corresponding benefits are offered. Choose your favorite animal to support or purchase a gift adoption to help make a difference.
