ADOPTION FEES AND INTERNATIONAL TRAVEL COST
Our adoption fee only covers their core vaccines, test for diseases, spay/neuter microchip and some of their boarding. We rely on donations for any medical treatment and ongoing care until they are adopted.
It costs more to adopt a pet from abroad because of international travel costs. These animals don't have the luxury of already being in the UK, Europe or the USA and there is a cost involved with getting them to their adoptive country.
We hope that you would consider saving a cat or dog who has no chance of a home they all so deserve regardless of costs.
See below for the details of adoption fees and and average international travel costs.
Adoption fees helps us cover core vaccinations, tests, spay/neuter, microchip and some of their boarding costs.
Our adoption fee represents a fraction of our overall costs to rescue a healthy cat or dog. Our current expenses average about £800 per dog and £450 per cat.
Half of the adoption fee is taken as a non refundable deposit at time of application approval and the remainder is collected when the pet's travel is booked.
INTERNATIONAL TRAVEL COST
Average international travel cost of a cat or a dog is dependent on the country and the method of travel. It typically covers flight fare, travel crate, travel documents and airport transfers and customs clearance.
We expect our adopters to pay for the international travel related costs about a week before the pet is due to travel.
Pets coming to the United Kingdom travel either by road to your home address or fly to one of the European countries then travel on the tunnel to Dover or Folkestone.
