    Bit to Do

    Valentine’s Day is tomorrow.

     You still have no idea what to buy for your loved one that will say, “Hey, I didn’t wait until the last minute. This gift took weeks, possibly months, to perfect!”


    The Louisville Zoo wants to help you by letting you, help them.

    Through tomorrow, save $15 on a special Valentine’s Day message package through the A.D.O.P.T.S. (Animals Depend on People To Survive) program. The adoption is good for a year and goes directly toward the care and feeding of the animal you adopt.

    How great is that?

    This Valentine’s Day special is 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 stuffed animal from the Zoo’s gift shop.

    The animals available for this package are:

    • 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!”


    So, this year, give your Valentine something unique, thoughtful and local.

    And if this act of kindness impresses the one you love?

    All the better.
