The Buffalo Zoo invites patrons to show support for the animals by buying them lunch this month.
The Buffalo Zoo has an annual grocery bill of more than $250,000 to feed 1,200-plus animal residents. During the month of July, the zoo invites visitors help cover that cost and "buy the animals lunch."
Zoo visitors can choose to add $1 to food, admission, membership, or gift shop purchases. All proceeds will benefit the adopt-an-animal program, and be used to purchase food for the Buffalo Zoo's animal residents. Each participant will receive an "I Helped Buy the Animals Lunch" thank you card.
In addition to the "Buy the Animals Lunch" summer campaign, animal adoptions are available year-round. Several adoption levels and packages are available starting at $25 through the adopt-an-animal program. Participants can choose their own favorite animal to support or purchase a gift adoption to help make a difference.
For more information about the Buffalo Zoo's adoption program, call 716-995-6131 or visit the Buffalo Zoo online at www.buffalozoo.org. The Buffalo Zoo is located at 300 Parkside Ave., Buffalo.
