Adopt an Animal and take action against the Illegal Wildlife Trade!

Starting May 28 through August 31 all proceeds from 'adoptions' will directly support our conservation partner ARCAS in Guatemala and their life saving work.

The illegal wildlife trade causes animal suffering, threatens beautiful species, and can lead to the spread of zoonotic disease. Many animals are pulled from the jungles of Central America for this harmful trade. ARCAS rescues, rehabilitates, and releases animals from this crisis. Your support by Adopting an Animal will fund the programs that prevent this cruel industry.

Choose one of our five gift categories below and donate online, or download our form and donate by mail.
