The perfect gift for your loved one this Valentine’s

Posted: 9 February 2012. Updated: 9 February 2012


As a Valentine’s gift for your partner, Animal Defenders International (ADI) is offering the chance for readers to adopt one of their rescued animal couples saved from terrible suffering, who have now found happiness and companionship.

Jan Creamer, ADI’s Chief Executive said: “What better way to show your love to your partner than to adopt one of our very special rescued animal couples. With this special gift adoption you can give the gift of love and help us save a life.”

ADI’s special Valentine’s day “Loved Ones” adoptions feature two lions called Caesar and Sarah and two baboons, Tilin and Tina.

Sarah and Caesar the lions were saved from a life of torment in a Portuguese circus by ADI and are now seeing out their days in peace and tranquillity in Africa. Their ADI enclosure of natural bush is almost twice the size of Wembley which they roam together, always at each other’s side.

Tilin and Tina are two baboons who crossed the globe to meet and for their loneliness to end. ADI rescued Tilin from a circus in Bolivia, where he was chained by the neck and kept in a tiny cage. He had been alone for around 11 years – his isolation must have been unbearable. Tina was rescued from the pet trade in Cyprus and joined Tilin just a few months ago

Jan Creamer said: “It is obviously vital for us to raise funds to care for our rescued animals with this fun adoption pack, but a more serious message is that animals need companionship of their own kind too. To keep animals like baboons, lions, and elephants alone is a torture in itself.”

With ADI’ special “Loved Ones” adoptions, you are able to adopt two animals for a year for the price of one – just £28. Adopters receive:

  • A special “With Love” card featuring the animals
  • An adoption certificate
  • A rescue DVD
  • Their exclusive adoption newsletter (three times a year)
  • Regular updates about your adopted couple and our activities
  • Animal Defender magazine (twice a year), packed with news of their latest campaigns and rescue work
