Puppies in a basket

Why do people adopt animals?

People of all ages can enjoy the benefits of animal adoption, which might be on a domestic level in the home, or through supporting the work of various animal associations or charities. You might be offering a new forever home to an unwanted puppy, supporting the work of your local horse sanctuary, or taking a walk on the wild side, and adopting an animal at your local zoo. Many wildlife charities also run animal adoption schemes, where those that sign up, can help fund work to protect and conserve the habitats of a range of species across the world. Adoptions can even be given as gifts to friends and family, and are a great way of finding out more about animals, and the work that goes into protecting or caring for them.
