For most animals we find suitable new homes in reserves, zoos or in our own permanent shelter in the south of Spain.
AAP also works to prevent welfare issues by actively exercising influence through both Dutch and European policy-makers and decision-makers in this area, and working work with domestic and foreign professional parties on an active and strategic level.
