By the Buffalo Zoo
The Buffalo Zoo invites patrons to show support for the animals by buying them lunch.
The Buffalo Zoo has an annual grocery bill totaling more than $250,000 to feed over 1,000 animal residents. During the month of July, Buffalo Zoo patrons will have the opportunity to help cover that cost and "buy the animals lunch!" Each participant will receive a special "I Bought The Animals Lunch" sticker.
Running throughout the month of July, Buffalo Zoo visitors can choose to add $1 to their admission, food, gift shop or membership purchase. All proceeds will benefit the adopt-an-animal program and will be used to purchase food for the animal residents.
In addition to the "Buy the Animals Lunch" summer campaign, animal adoptions are available year-round. Several adoption levels with corresponding benefits are available. Gift levels start at $25. Participants can choose their favorite animal to support or purchase a gift adoption to help make a difference.
