Adopt a bunny
Looking for a truly unique gift to stock the Easter Basket with this year? Consider adopting a bunny from Binder Park Zoo! Battle Creek’s Binder Park Zoo’s A.D.O.P.T (animals depend on people too) program helps to provide the nutritious food, medical care and attention the animals need.
The Easter bunny adopt package includes an ADOPT certificate, a color picture of your adopted animal, an animal fact sheet, a small plush of your adopted animal and the name of recipient displayed on the Zoo’s Adopt Honor Roll board for one year, all for $30 per adoption.
Go to binderparksooonline.org/donations/adopt.php or call (269) 979-1351.
