Adopt and animal and help a good cause

A present with a heart and a conscience - that's our adopt an animal gifts for you! You might be helping to save an abandoned donkey who's walked his last walk on the beach, assisting with research into the lives of polar bears on the frosty ice-caps, or simply making sure that some of the thousands of puppies and kittens without homes are well looked after.

How these adoption schemes work

If you've never adopted a furry friend before, we'll explain how it works. The majority of our sponsorship packs come in a funky little tin, with an adorable picture of the species you'll be helping on the front. Lift the lid and inside you'll find a wealth of information on the charity, sanctuary or welfare project you'll be helping, as well as a photo your chosen non-human. It might be a new little or very large friend, with everything from graceful giraffes to teeny snowy owls seeking adoptive human parents.

Some packs also include free or discounted tickets to visit centres and zoos in the UK that run or partner the adoption schemes you’re supporting with these gifts.

So what sort of preservation projects need your cash?

Well, as the saying goes 'It's a dog's life' and in Borneo it's certainly a dog eat dog world, with even the rescue centres for our canine friends often overcrowded, so it's good to know that by supporting this international charity you'll be providing proper welfare and help for strays and street dogs.

Thanks to a certain advertising campaign, one of the most popular mammals to adopt is the Meerkat. They are undoubtedly gorgeous, but they also need your help at a special conservation project in South Africa, providing a safe and secure environment for poorly, orphaned and injured Meerkats. We have to say, it doesn't get much cuter than that.

If it's impressive rather than adorable you're looking for, we can recommend a Big Cat adoption scheme. You can pick from a pride of fierce felines, from the super fast Snow Cheetah to the much-loved Tiger. Once again, you will be providing much-needed aid to projects around the world all with the aim of offering a better life to those species at risk.

Schemes closer to home include an adoption pack to support wolves at a specialist conservation centre in the UK. Often misunderstood creatures, wolves are fascinating as you can see from the Wolf centre’s open day video.
