in my city you can only find pets because there is no space for wild animals to live, although you can find birds and rats.

There are a lot of wild animals near of my house because formerly my house was everything land and forest, it’s more, it still have got a lot of forests.

One time, I found a rushed fox in a road remote of my house. The fox was still living but it has a injury paw. Quickly I took it and I called to a veterinary. He treated the animal and the fox was in my house one week in repose. When the week passed, the fox was better and my family decided let it loose on the forest.
I think that the fox is happy and healthy in its home.

The animals that live in my local area are horses, but we also have storks.
Once, I helped a little bird that couldn't fly because it was very small. I fed it with wet bread and milk. When I saw it flying, I was very happy.

My neighbor has a beautiful dog-Golden Retriever. His name is Max. But wild animals like wolf,bear or fox don't live near my city. My city doesn't have a lot of forest, meadow and therefore there are not many wild animals.

One time, i helped a pigeon who had an injured wing. I kept it 1 week and after I released it because it could fly once again ^^

Hi from Georgia:))

I love animals but are some varities that I'm afraid of:( I think we'll do everything to protect them from danger,because some bad people are hunting and they want to kill them for different reasons:to enjoy,for food and etc. I think The goverment must do something to survive them!

I can not say that a lot of animals around me, but I've met the animals who need my help. I helped their help as far as I could, but I feel sorry that I could not help them as they need ....After watching this video, I want to help all the animals as I can.

In my country live many wild and domestic animals. For example: dogs, cats, wolf, bear and other. I love animals, especially dogs. In my country isn't ambulance service of animals and there are many homeless animals, which are ill or injured.

Hi tiko lobjanidze! I'll try to answer your questions.

A donation is a gift of money. The animal centre in the video needs donations so it can keep on taking care of the animals - I think that costs a lot of money. A chap just means a man - but it's a friendly-sounding word (and a bit old-fashioned). In the video when they say 'this little chap', they're talking about the hedgehog. They call it a chap because they like the hedgehog and think of it a bit like a human, not just an animal!

Does that help? Did you enjoy the video?

This video is very interesting! I think that everyone should save aminals which are in danger, they are part of our life and we must help them. In my country live many kind of animals, but some of them are in danger becouse of hunting .So we must stop hunting and survive our local area animals :)))
