Lots of animal welfare charities encourage you to adopt an animal

The money you donate to adopt the animal is used in different ways depending on the charity.

For example, WWF uses some of your adoption money to protect your chosen species, and some goes towards vital conservation work that benefits other animals too.

Depending on the type of animal you adopt, your money typically goes towards the food, care and protection each animal needs, as well as longer-term conservation programmes to protect species in the wild.
