A new home
When the animals have fully recovered, they are ready for outplacement! We are in contact with hundreds of animal parks in Europe. Of course, we only outplace animals in parks that can guarantee good accomodation and care for our animals.
The animals get a nice home where they can stay for the rest of their lives. At the same time, the shelter creates space for other animals in need.
Some animals go directly after their quarantine period to an outplacement address, other animals stay at AAP for years. On the one hand because they need more time to recover, on the other, because we cannot always find a suitable outplacement address immediately.
The likelihood of a successful outplacement depends on several factors:
- The species: some species fit better in zoos than others.
- The group size: it is easier to outplace larger groups than small ones.
- The care needs of an animal: some animals need a little more attention than usual and an outplacement address must be able to provide that.
Questions & answers - outplacement
AAP is a rescue center and therefore a temporary address for the animals. If we outplace our animals to our partners they usually get a more spacious home with more facilities and can stay there for the rest of their lives. At the same time there is room at AAP for other animals in need!
AAP has built a worldwide network of contacts with a large number of zoos, reserves, wildlife parks. For example we work together with zoos that are affiliated with EARS, (European Association of Zoos and Aquaria).
More than 100.
