This Christmas, the UK’s leading vegan charity Viva! is offering people the opportunity to adopt a rescued farmed animal as a gift for a loved one.
Working in collaboration with animal sanctuary Beneath the Wood, customers can pay just £25 to adopt their preferred animal friend for a year, half of which goes directly towards the animal’s feed and care, ensuring they stay safe and fed.
The other half of the donation goes to Viva!, ensuring the charity can continue its work to save as many animal lives as possible.
The gift recipient will receive an adoption pack including: a letter, personalised certificate, colour photo (7×5”), and adoption postcard. They will also receive a six-month update letter. Kids’ packs (for under 12-year-olds) will also include an animal factsheet and accompanying keepsake folder.
The fantastic dog rescue charity K-9 Angels has just launched their limited edition 2023 calendar.
Full of photos from their wonderful adopters showing great before and after pictures and highlighting some memorable charity achievements from the last year including some great news for 2023.
K-9 Angels were initially best known as a dog rescue charity, and whilst they still do rescue dogs in need of course, this is not all they do. K-9 Angels help stray dogs all around the world, as well as the UK, and have not only rehomed hundreds of dogs in the last ten years, but also funded aid for shelters, providing food, medical supplies, and undertaken regular spay/neuter and vaccination programmes, spaying over a thousand animals and preventing literally millions of unwanted strays being born into lives of misery and starvation.

VeggieVisionDating.com – dating for vegans and vegetarians.
Well as this is run by VeggieVision TV we want to give it a mention however it may be something you may like to ask your gift recipient about first!
Are they single, veg*n and ready to mingle? If so why not treat them to a month or longer on our very own dating site?
Now, why should a single veg*n join VeggieVisionDating.com over other sites….? The key difference here is that you aren’t lost in a crowd of people who you definitely aren’t going to date. Everybody on our site is veg*n and they want to date other veg*ns.
With thanks to the companies who sent us products to review for this vegan gift feature.
