We are unable to fully assess our dogs before they travel to the UK. This means that we usually have very little information on their personalities and what type of home they would suit best. Therefore, we do not adopt dogs directly from Romania. However, you can foster a dog with a view of adoption. This means that the dog can settle in during the foster period and we can make sure that they are a suitable match for your household without already committing to adoption. We usually recommend that you foster the dog for at least four weeks before making the decision of whether you would like to adopt the dog.
Generally this process works very well; however, if you feel that the dog isn’t the right fit for your household during the fostering period, then we can transfer the dog over to our partner rescue where they will assess the dog and find them a suitable home.
To apply for foster-to-adoption then please complete the form below, and you must read the terms and conditions before completing the form.
We will raise the funds for your dog’s travel to the UK. They will travel using a pet transport company, who will drop the dog off at a suitable collection point. This may be directly at your door. You can foster-to-adopt a dog from anywhere in mainland UK. Unfortunately, we are unable to transport dogs to UK islands or Northern Ireland.
Once your foster-to-adopt application has been completed and the dog is reserved to you, you will be asked to pay a non-refundable reservation fee of £50, which will be deducted from the adoption fee if you decide to adopt the dog. Our adoption fees are £200; however, our less-mobile, older dogs, or those with health issues, have an adoption fee of £150. Puppies are £300.
All adoption fees go towards our dogs in Romania for their medical costs, transport and improving the shelter environment while they wait to travel to the UK.
After completing an application, we aim to respond within 5 days. Please make sure to check your junk email for a response.
