Adopt a Sloth for Valentine's Day to Show True Love

The perfect gift from the heart. 

St. Louis Zoo is running a sloth adoption campaign in order to raise money for their animals. Unfortunately, the zoo is not giving away real sloths, although that wouldn't be very ecologically responsible. For $50, the Valentine's Day Sloth Adoption package includes a cute plush toy sloth along with:

  • Gift card from you
  • Personalized adoption certificate
  • Color photo with animal facts
  • Car decal
  • Name on the Zoo Parents Donor Wall and website for one year
  • Invitation to the Zoo Parents Picnic

If you order by February 1, the adoption package is guaranteed to arrive by Valentine's Day. If you pick it up at the zoo you can save $10, so maybe consider taking your true love on a date to the St. Louis Zoo!

There you can see the resident sloths Blondie and Camden. One is a Linne's two-toed sloth:

And the other is a Hoffman's two-toed sloth.

All proceeds from the Valentine's Day campaign will go towards feeding and caring for the zoo animals at St. Louis Zoo.

And think, your gift is benefitting some of the cutest animals around and your love can have their name as one of the sponsors and get a personalized adoption certificate! It's a gift that lasts longer than a box of chocolates...

Order your gift online here, call (314) 646-4771 for phone orders, or pick your gift up at the welcome desk at the St. Louis Zoo.

Happy Valentine's Day!
