Animal-friendly Christmas Suggestions Part 1

Give a gift that keeps on giving

We are such a consumer society. How often do you find it a challenge to find something for friends and family at the gift-giving time...everyone seems to have everything they need! What to do?

The animal kingdom could do with the Christmas cheer. What about a gift double headed this year? Buy a gift or donate through the various charities and NGOs that can put your dollars to work where it’s really needed.

O2E has put together some suggestions for you to take the chore out of Christmas and to bring back “L-O-V-E and Peace To All”. These suggestions will come in different parts over the next few weeks following up to Christmas so keep an eye out for new posts!

So the first two suggestions we have are to Donate and to Adopt! Read on for more information :) 


The recent floods in Thailand have stretched the services and staff of the WFFT to the limit. Hundreds of dogs and cats have been rescued by Edwin Weik and WFFT and sent to the Centre for rehabilitation and safe haven. From first-hand experience O2E Volunteers can tell you how much food and care these residents need. A donation would be much appreciated!

You can make a donation by going to the following link :


There are over 400 animals at WFFT and many of them are available for adoption. You receive an A4 colour Adoption Certificate and regular updates by email. You can to speak directly to the Centre regarding adoption on volunteer@wfft.org, stating which animal/s you are interested in adopting, if you like.

Prices are as follows:
1 year’s adoption: $50 US / 35 Euros
2 year’s adoption: $80 US / 55 Euros
5 year’s adoption: $200 US / 140 Euros

Primates for adoption include these gorgeous darlings.

White-cheeked Gibbon (Nomascus leucogenys)
Maa Mii
Siamang (Symphalangus Syndactylus)
Pileated Gibbon
(Hylobates pileatus)
White-handed Gibbon
(Hylobates lar)
Golden-cheeked Gibbon
(Nomascus gabriellae)
You can also adopt Elephants, Bears, a variety of wildlife and nocturnal animals too!

So what are you waiting for? Make someone's (be they animal or human!) Christmas this year a special one!
