Give some animal love this Valentines Day

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 only $10, 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 December 31, 2010—more than a $20 value! Choose from a Lovable Lion, Trustworthy Turtle, Gentle Giraffe, Zany Zebra, Terrific Tiger or Gorgeous Gorilla. You can also use your imagination and come up with another selection that best represents your valentine’s personality (Sweetie Snake or Marvelous Mongoose anyone?)!

All proceeds benefit the Zoo’s Adopt-an-Animal program. Adoptions are available now by calling (716) 995-6131 or by visiting our website at Adoptions are also available for purchase in person after February 3 at our Zootique Gift Shop, which is open Wednesday – Sunday from 10:00 a.m. to 4:00 p.m.
