Adoption fees per dog are £595 for all dogs and includes a microchip, passport, vaccinations, parasite treatment, tests for Southern European diseases, neutering (if appropriate) and transport to the UK. The process for rehoming is simple and you can read more about it here
We do try to get back to everybody as soon as possible, but since we are only a small team of volunteers, this isn't aways possible. You should hear from us in approximately 7-14 days if your application has been successful. You can read more about our application process and how to make the most of your application here
We cannot contact people directly about their particular requirements as there is not the time or resource to do so. We tend to specialise in rehoming English Setters, Brittanys and Pointers, with occasional other breeds like Griffons and Podencos. This is because these breeds are classed as working dogs in Spain and are often dumped by their owners.
Because most of our dogs are in Spain, you won't be able to meet your dog before you rehome it but we do occasionally have foster dogs in the UK too! We have rehomed many, many dogs successfully without the need for them to meet their new owners. We will always work with you to make sure (as much as we can) that the dog you want is a good fit for your life.
The rescuers in Spain work extremely hard to rescue as many dogs as possible, often alongside many other commitments. Some of the shelters we work with have volunteers who take very high quality photos, while others don't. The information they can give us is limited due to the amount of dogs they are helping and their lack of resources but we try our best to match dogs up to their new homes as best we can.
Every adoption is treated as an individual case, so while the process normally takes about 2-6 weeks, it can be shorter or longer depending on a number of factors, and this should not be taken as a guarantee. We will do their best to find a dog whose needs suit your circumstances from the start, so many people agree a match with us right from the start. Others may like to rehome one dog, but end up with another one (or two!). Whenever you discuss a dog with us, their needs will be explained to you so that you know what to expect. For example, if you want to rehome a deaf dog, we will discuss this in detail with you. If you know there is a big event (moving house, going on holiday, a new baby) coming up soon, it's best to start the process after everything has settled down so that whenever you find your new dog, you're ready for them.
