A national #YouCanAdopt campaign titled ‘A Life Less Ordinary’ has launched in the West Midlands to find parents for the children waiting the longest to be adopted. Adoption@Heart, the Regional Adoption Agency for the Black Country, is backing the campaign that is highlighting the need for more adopters to come forward for brother and sister groups, children aged 5 and above, children with additional needs and those from ethnic minority backgrounds. 

The UK’s leading police dog charity fears families who take on retired canine heroes may be left with no choice but to give their beloved pets up due to ‘alarming soaring costs’. The Thin Blue Paw Foundation – a charity that supports, celebrates and protects working and retired service dogs across the UK – has called on the public to help them ensure the country’s retired canine heroes have access to medication, therapy and life-saving treatment when they need it. 

LGBT+ people are being encouraged to consider adoption during this; LGBT+ Adoption and Fostering Week.

Adoption@Heart, the Regional Adoption Agency for the Black Country, is backing the national campaign which returns for its 10th year and runs until Sunday (13 March). It calls for LGBT+ people to #BeTheChange and consider either adoption or fostering as a route to parenting.
