How To Adopt
Adopting a dog is an incredibly rewarding act of kindness but is a lifelong commitment. As you will be welcoming a new member into your family it is important for you and your new dog to find the right match. It is very easy and straightforward to adopt with Saving Suffering Strays; you complete an application form and we arrange a home check if we have a suitable dog in need for you. During the restrictions imposed by Covid -19 we are conducting virtual home checks where necessary by recorded video call. Where safe we will visit your garden but will always practice social distancing and wear full PPE as appropriate. The home checker will ask you a series of questions about your home which will include questions on your working hours, how often you will exercise your dog and they will ensure that your garden is fully fenced and secure. If the home check is approved then we proceed to finalise the adoption.
The total adoption fee is £360 (UK) or €400 (Europe), (USA & Canada TBC). All dogs over 1 year old will have been neutered, micro-chipped and vaccinated. Under legislative guidelines and the vaccination programme that we undertake with all our dogs puppies cannot travel until they are at least 4 months old. We have a strict policy on the neutering of our puppies once in their new homes. Email us for more information on any particular dog, or call us for an informal chat. We can arrange adoptions to various parts of the world including the UK certain European countries, and the USA & Canada (subject to flight volunteers).
Why We Need Adopters
We have over 50 street dogs and puppies in our care and more need to be saved weekly by our rescuer Milena Malesevic as there are always desperate dogs needing our help. We URGENTLY need adopters and fosterers. Our dogs really do deserve the love of a good owner and a home to call their own. Could that be you? You can take a look at our latest wonderful dogs waiting for their chance of a new life by visiting our Facebook albums page here, along with our Twitter and Instagram feeds.
