The Louisville Zoo is offering a furry way for you to say Happy Valentine's Day. Now through February 14, you can save $15 on a special Valentine's message package through the A.D.O.P.T.S. (Animals Depend on People To Survive) program. Participants "adopt" an animal for a full year.
The Valentine's special includes your choice of several loveable animals for only $60 (regularly $75) and includes an animal adoption certificate, a picture of the selected animal, a button photo, the adoptive parent's name on the Zoo website and a plush animal from the Zoo's gift shop. Funds received from the "adoptions" go directly toward the care and feeding of the amazing creatures in our care.
Animals with special Valentine's Day messaging include:
Grizzly Bear - "I can't bear to be without you!"
Brazilian Ocelot - "I love you an ocelot"
Amur (Siberian) Tiger - "You're the purrr-fect Amur for me!"
Western Lowland Gorilla - "I go ape over you!"
African Lion - "I ain't lion, you're my Valentine!"
Wart Hog - "Hogs & kisses to you!"
California Sea Lion - "Let's seal it with a kiss"
African Elephant - "I could never forget you Valentine, I love you tons!"
Great Horned Owl - "Whooo's my Valentine? You!"
Hartmann's Zebra - "It's black & white, I love you Valentine!"
Rockhopper Penguin - "I waddle be your Valentine!"
The Louisville Zoo food budget for the animals is over $400,000 annually. As the Zoo grows, so does the food budget. Triton, a 21 year-old male California Sea lion, alone can eat nearly 50 pounds of fish a day.
