There are many ways to make points on Valentine's Day. This is one of them.

As the folks at Binder Park Zoo point out, flowers wilt and chocolates melt!

They suggest telling your special someone "I love you" with a Valentine from the animals at Binder Park Zoo.  The special Valentine’s Day A.D.O.P.T (Animals Depend on People Too) package comes complete with a plush red panda and whimsical poetry by one of the Zoo’s very own zookeepers:

Roses are red and pandas are too. I don’t know what I’d do if I didn’t have you!”

They also point out that a $35 Adopt purchase will help feed over 400 mouths at the Zoo. Chocolate and roses can’t do that!

The special Red Panda Valentine’s Adopt package ($35) includes:

  • A special colored Valentine’s card
  • A plush Red Panda stuffed animal
  • An Adopt Certificate
  • Adopt recipients name displayed on the Zoo’s Adopt Honor Roll
  • A colored red panda photograph
  • Red panda fact sheet

Online purchase is available on the Binder Park Zoo website.
