What is an adoption

Action for Wildlife runs a scheme of iconic adoptions. This enables you to help towards the cost of looking after the animals in our hospital. Your contribution will go towards the special food and medication that the patient needs till it's rehabilitation.

By adopting an animal through our scheme you are helping in a very efficient way towards the care not only of your chosen animal, but the care of all the patients who need our support throughout the year. Action for Wildlife is financially supported only but the membership fees and contributions of volunteers.

Adoption can be taken either by a single person or a team of people, eg a group of students.

You will receive a Certificate of Adoption with the animal's photograph and will be updated regularly with the progress the animal is making.

If the animal recovers and is ready to return back into the wild we will inform you in order to attend the special moment. You might not be able to participate or meet the animal you have adopted but your contribution is vital for his survival and rehabilitation.

Animal adoptions are 50€ and can cover the cost of food and medical treatment needed for a whole year. We will then write to you at the end of the year, offering you the opportunity to renew your adoption, or to take out a brand new adoption.

Don’t forget you can adopt for yourself or as a gift for someone else. Adoption of a sick animal can help children become more sensitive towards wildlife and more willing to protect it in the future.
