Take Me Home

We took care of them. Now let them take care of you.
Here we take care of animals rescued from evacuated areas in Minas Gerais and we want to share all this love with more people through adoption.
Having a pet brings physical and mental health benefits. It’s an exchange of love and affection that’s good for everyone. Take one home, look after it and let it look after you too.

Who we are

Take Me Home is the adoption program created by Vale to find new families for the animals rescued in the areas affected by the failure of B1 Tailings Dam in Brumadinho and in other evacuated areas in Minas Gerais.
While they wait to be adopted, the animals are cared for with a lot of love and affection by our team of specialists at the farms maintained by Vale in Brumadinho, Barão dos Cocais and Itabirito, as well as at partner pet hotels.

Having a pet is great​

Many studies have proven that having a pet has significant benefits for physical and mental health. Rest assured, while you’re looking after them, they’re also looking after you!
Pode ter certeza, enquanto você cuida deles, eles também estão cuidando de você.

It’s good for the heart.

We’re not just talking about love! Having a pet can help improve blood pressure, reduce stress and even lower cholesterol and triglyceride levels. What’s more, going for walks and having fun with pets can contribute to an even better quality of life.

It’s good for the mind.

Living with pets releases endorphins, creating a feeling of well-being, peace and improved self-esteem. Our pets can offer companionship and emotional support in times of stress and anxiety, making life lighter and happier.
