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.

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 :)))

In my opinion , it's a perfect for our world ))) We can save animals from extinction )) In my country we don't have a rescue centres and have big problems with animal injures ))) Some animals are dying on the streets .)))) So lets make our world safer and healthier )) We are humans and we can do this )))
