How does adoption work?

 

Would you like to give one of our abandoned animals a new home? We would be thrilled,  and our four-legged friends will be delighted!

Under ‘Dogs available for Adoption’, you will find the list of dogs that are currently available for adoption. Many of them are mixed breeds, but we also have pure breeds such as Podencos (Spanish hunting dogs), Pointers and German Shepherds, to name but a few. We have dogs of all ages, from puppies to seniors, who are just looking for a retirement home for their twilight years,  with a warm bed and some well-deserved love!

There are many costs involved in looking after the dogs in our care; therefore, we ask for a donation upon adoption to cover their costs. The cost varies depending on the age of the dog. For special cases of dogs in need, the seniors and pairs of dogs, there will be a special fee.

All adoptions include:

  • A Microchip
  • A European passport
  • All the necessary vaccinations
  • Blood tests on all the prevailing Mediterranean diseases (Leishmaniosis, Ehrlichia, Rickettsia)

Our Age Policy:

In order to try and prevent the dogs from returning to the shelter, we have to apply the following age policy. Many dogs have already arrived with us due to their owners sadly passing away or being too ill to give them the care they need, and it is based on the average lifespan of a dog and their care needs at each stage

The minimum age for adoption is 21 years old.
