WHY ADOPT AN ANIMAL WITH BORN FREE?
Animal adoptions with Born Free make a real difference – your support can have an immediate impact on the lives of animals across the world, including rescued animals, and animals living in the wild.
The money raised by adoptions can help cover the cost of lifetime sanctuary, food and care for an animal saved from the horror of captivity; it can help pay for rangers to carry out patrols and remove dangerous snares that kill or injure lions, giraffes and elephants in the wild.
Animal adoptions also make great presents for hard to buy for friends and family – an adopt an animal gift is something truly special that will delight your loved one and improve the lives of animals around the world.

Adopt a wild animal with Born Free and the money will directly support the care of individual wild animals or their families. Any extra funds go towards our projects to protect the species and its habitat. The adoption keeps you personally in touch with your adopted animal and, believe me, makes a real difference.
WHAT’S INCLUDED IN A BORN FREE ANIMAL ADOPTION?
When you adopt an endangered animal with Born Free, not only will you be providing invaluable care, you will also receive a special welcome pack, either digitally or through the post.
Your welcome will include a personalised gift pack, adoption certificate, and regular updates on the impact your support has. Supporters will also be sent our My Adopt magazine, either in print or digitally, which contains updates on all of our adopted animals, and you’ll receive regular email updates to let you know how your animal is doing. And, if you choose a physical adoption pack you can also choose to include a soft toy animal gift.
WHAT IS A DIGITAL ANIMAL ADOPTION?
Digital adoptions mean no packaging, minimal carbon footprint and maximum support for your adopted animal, and Born Free’s work. Digital adoptions mean 33% more of your adoption fee will go directly towards helping animals, compared to choosing a physical adoption pack.
You will receive the digital pack and a personalised certificate by email, which you can either keep for yourself, or fill out and forward on to your chosen recipient if you are buying the adoption as a gift.
HOW MUCH DOES IT COST TO ADOPT AN ANIMAL WITH BORN FREE?
You can adopt an animal by setting up a monthly Direct Debit of as little as £3 a month, or you can adopt an animal with a one-off payment from £36 for the year – the total cost of adopting for a year is the same, whichever option you choose.
Choosing to pay by Direct Debit helps your money go further; it helps our long-term planning and keeps our administration costs down.

CAN’T PICK AN ANIMAL TO ADOPT?
If you can’t decide which of our adorable animals you want to adopt, you may be interested in becoming a Born Free supporter by setting up a monthly donation. The money we receive from our regular donations is unrestricted, and allows us to support the projects that need it the most.
