Adopt a dog

Tine and Martin happily brought Whisper and Ursulica home to Norway!

Most of the dogs at our shelter are up for adoption, and are looking for happy homes that they can call their own. All our dogs were found on the streets and rescued by our shelter, and now they are healthy and ready to find homes with loving families.

Since many Romanians don’t value street dogs very much, and tend to adopt mainly breeds instead, our market is mostly international – and we’ve had great results so far! To date we’ve flown dogs to Holland, Italy, Ireland, the UK, Sweden, Norway, France, Germany and Canada – and we’re excited to work with many more countries in the future!

WHAT WE PROVIDE, FREE OF CHARGE:
– ensure the dog is sterilized, microchipped, and has all its vaccines
– complete a health check with a vet before the dog flies out
– take care of all the paperwork and the dog passports

WHAT YOU DO:
– complete a background check with us and fill out an adoption application
– pay for the flight of the dog – this is your only expense. Prices vary based on the airline, destination, and size of the dog. Dogs flying internationally need to be accompanied by a human passenger so you may need to fly to Romania yourself, or we may know someone who travels from your country to and from Romania who can accompany the dog. Or, if you live in the right area, we may have foster dogs that you are able to adopt (see below)
– agree that you will care for the dog and that you will provide pictures to update us on how the dog is doing
– if your new dog is not fitting in at its new home, we will take them back free of charge and try to re-place them. Our priority is not just to send dogs away, but to actually find them happy, loving homes.

PRICES:
– if booking with Lufthansa, the cost is between €70 – €300, depending on the destination and size of the dog
– if booking with KLM, the cost for the dog is €75 if it’s within Europe, and €200 if traveling between Europe and the US or Canada.

FOSTER DOGS:
– on occasion, we may have a few dogs in foster homes around the world available for immediate adoption
– if adopting a dog that’s already in a foster home, we charge €225 / $300 to make up the initial cost of the dog’s trip. As always, all the shots, spaying/neutering, paperwork and microchip are done by us before they leave Romania
– all the same conditions as above apply; but you have the luxury of meeting the dog in person before you adopt without having to buy a flight to Romania!

Here is a selection of our Dogs for Adoption; we will be continuously updating this album. If you are interested in any of the dogs in this album, if you would like more photos or a video of a certain dog, or if you have any questions at all, please contact us.
