Adopt an animal - Make a difference

Post by ldsqon062501 » Thu Jul 21, 2011 9:59 am

There is a way that you can supprt the largest animal conservation charity - the World Wildlife Fund, or WWF. You can adopt a animal.
There are over 100 species you can adopt, from canids to amphibians, felines to birds, and even more species.
By doing this, you support the species you adopt. The donation you make will fight threads like poaching and habitat loss.

Find out more here ~

Note from Silverness: I think it'll be better to turn this in a general animal 'adoption' thread rather than just this WWF opportunity. So, did anyone adopt an animal through one source or another? :) (Adopting in the sense of not actually owning the animal, but supporting their habitat and the like.)

Very cool, checking it out right now... how did you find out about the WWF, by the way?

Well I actually just recently adopted my new kitten, Izzy Renee, from PetFinder.com. I have never bought a pet from a store before and never, ever will. most, if not all, pf their puppies come from puppy mills. don't know what they are? google it and you'll find what you need...

Right, but this isn't a normal pet adoption - it's giving back to the universe. And also, its not domestic animals.

That is really cool, thanks for sharing... I am definitely considering asking for adopting an Amur leopard or tiger for Christmas.

This is a great topic to discuss on here! I'm going to adopt a Grey Wolf very soon from the National Wildlife Federation! (My grandmother is a member and we might adopt a wolf!)
And btw when you "adopt" a wild animal you pay money to "adopt" a specific animal from one species (for ex- the grey wolf!) and when you pay for it you're also helping to protect the species! (Haha very late comment but I hope this is good info!)
And here are some links to places where you can "adopt" a wild animal (you need to be a member though first!)
Links!
The National Wildlife Federation Adoption Center: http://www.shopnwf.org/Adoption-Center/index.cat
The World Wildlife Fund Adoption Center: http://www.worldwildlife.org/gift-cente ... tions.aspx
Hope these links helped!

(Btw I think you can adopt some baby animals from WWF and NWF!)

I was very happy to find out that down where I live they were letting active duty (or in the navy or military) To adopt animals for free or if your not active duty then you can adopt any animal for $25! Many animals were adopted and saved! I am very happy to!!!! :D
