Does your favorite four-legged friend love getting a new toy? Well so do ours! Henry Vilas Zoo is excited to join forces with Mounds Pet Food Warehouse
as part of our enrichment program! While things like fresh food, water, and clean beds keep our zoo residents healthy, we also want to keep them happy, and YOU can help!
Visit Mounds Pet Food Warehouses in Madison, Fitchburg, and Middleton and search the aisles for our zoo logo on specially marked toys and treats! Or check out the HVZ in-store displays, packed full of toys for our featured zoo critters. These hand picked items are some of the favorites of the HVZ animals. Once you purchase any of these toys, they will be donated to the zoo! Every few weeks, zookeepers pick up the donated toys and hand them out to the zoo animals. Don't forget to tell your cashier which of your items are for the zoo donation box.
Can't decide what to buy? How about a Mounds gift card! Zookeepers like to pick out toys for their furry, feathered, and scaly friends too!
Want to buy your favorite zoo animal a birthday gift for HVZ's 100th birthday? Stop by one of the Madison area Mounds Petfood Warehouses and pick out a zookeeper approved toy! When you are done shopping, tell your cashier which items are for the zoo donation box.
Be sure to check out the Mounds Pet Food Warehouse website for a wish list of products for the zoo animals and keep an eye out for other exciting Mounds and Henry Vilas Zoo enrichment events!
