Adopting animals,

Former MemberFormer Member Posts: 1,876,323 The Mix Honorary Guru
How easy is it to adopt an animal like a lion in a safari park where you just pay a little amount of money, also a trusting one which won't scam or rip you off,

if not any other ideas for gifts for someone who loves animals,

all help is mucho appriciated

    London Zoo does something like that, and they're part of the whipsnade animal group... why not have a mooch around their website? I'm sure other zoos do it as well.

    Why would you want to adopt an animal you'll never see again?!?!?!

    why not actually get an animal like a homeless cat / dog? surely you'll get more pleasure out of it?

    Perhaps supporting an animal in the wild would be better?

    He already said he wanted to adopt a lion or something, rather than a pet.

    yes that's why I said an animal in the wild. Instead of from a rescue center.

    The Seal Sanctuarys are a good place to adopt animals. We went to the one in Skegness and they had plaques on the wall of people who had adopted animals. This place rescues seals...was a very good place indeed.
