Adoption is another important aspect of animal rescue, which is intended to find happy and loving homes for former strays.
Dogs and cats are social animals that have been companions of humans since the dawn of time. Early humans recognised the added value of keeping these species (and others of course) close to their hearts. The reason for this close association is that both dogs and cats have developed similar social structures through evolution as we have: the extended family. So by finding strays a loving home, we make both humans and animals happy and we create space for new rescues so we are able to help even more.
