The Buffalo Zoo will host a special meet and greet with Buffalo Bills captain Brandon Spikes this weekend.
Spikes is partnering with the Zoo to chair their Adopt an Animal program. To kick off the partnership, he will make an appearance at the Zoo this Saturday, September 20, from 1:30 pm until 2:30 pm.
The Zoo will offer a special adoption package through the 2014-2015 football season, featuring a North American porcupine that the Zoo has named “Spikes” in honor of the Bills player.

A limited edition adoption package will be available for only $10 during the event on Saturday. Anyone who purchases the package during the meet and greet will have an opportunity to have their adoption certificate autographed by Brandon Spikes.
The Buffalo Zoo has an annual grocery bill of around $250,000. The Zoo’s Adopt anAnimal program helps to pay for food for the animals throughout the year.
