FORT WAYNE, Ind. (www.incnow.tv) -- It's Zoo Day at area Kroger and Scotts stores, which is an annual event to raise money for the Fort Wayne Children's Zoo.

15 area stores are involved and this year an election is part of the fundraising festivities. Customers can vote for one of three favorite animals from the zoo. And local mayors are serving as campaign chairs for each candidate.

Every dollar donated for that particular animal counts as a vote. Tom Henry of Fort Wayne is the campaign chair for Jelani the Giraffe, Suzanna Hand-shoe of Kendallville is representing Fishbone the Sea Lion, and Ted Ellis of Bluffton will chair Bugara the Tiger's campaign.
