Adopt a bush dog

Calling dog lovers everywhere! You can adopt a bush dog through the Aspinall Foundation.

Research suggests the shy and elusive Bush Dog, or Savannah or Vinegar Dog, as it is also known, is threatened with extinction. Human activities, such farming and the suburban expansion of cities in South America, are the main reason its habitat is slowly disappearing. It is estimated that fewer the 15,000 mature adult Bush dogs now exist in the wild.

It has never been more important to protect this dwindling species through adoption or sponsorship. And you can do so today through the Aspinall Foundation, quickly and easily online, giving a great gift to the dog lover in your life at the same time.

The Aspinall Foundation is dedicated to nurturing and protecting endangered species of animals from all over the world. Their website offers you the opportunity to contribute to the welfare of many different species that desperately need protection. Through its animal adoption and sponsorship scheme, the charity returns endangered animals to safe, natural habitats.

Adopt or sponsor an animal today, and help them do their vital work. Adopting an animal in this way is also a creative and worthwhile ethical gift for family or friends whether it be for Christmas, a birthday or even as a creative wedding gift.

Sponsor or adopt a Bush Dog today and help protect endangered animals for years to come here.
