Adoption process


Please do not apply if you aren’t totally committed to adopting as our time is very precious,2019 saw many time wasters

All potential adopters will be home checked by a volunteer from the home check team we use. They will live locally to you and will call you personally to arrange a convenient time and day to visit. This is just a formality and is a chance for the home checker to point out any safety aspects you may not have realised existed, such as holes in fences, low walls the dog may be able to jump over and doors leading onto main roads which may be a concern.

There will then on completion of a successful home check be a contract sent out by post with two copies both to be signed and one returned in the enclosed stamped addressed envelope for our records and so we can register the microchip details for you on the UK database as required by law

Arrangements once payment is received will then be made to transport the dog or cat to the adopter, if already in this country on the next available transport or if still on Crete then as soon as there’s an available space when the animal is 16 weeks old and old enough to travel .in case of pups and kittens.

Animals passport will be given to an adopter only when full payment has been received and the animal’s microchip will then be registered in adopters name and address

Please inform any changes so registration can be updated by ourselves, the adopter will receive the official paperwork from the microchip data company

We ask for a non-refundable adoption fee of £300 for animals in the UK if adopting in any other country we agree on the flight and passport costs prior to adoption with you.


Your adoption fee is payable before adoption and includes the full passport for the dog, neutering if the dog is old enough to be neutered , microchipping and rabies vaccination as well as flea and worming.

Dogs will have had their vaccinations

Puppies will have had their first and often their second vaccinations its at your discretion if you have the third .

The microchip details will be registered free of charge on the UK database ,all paperwork will go to the adopter please keep us informed re change of address ,its your responsibility by law to change these details and there will be a nominal charge for doing so.

The adoption donation can be paid via PayPal ( friends and family button) if this button isn’t used charges are taken by Paypal which an adopter will have to pay or to a UK bank account of which details can be sent separately to you.

Any vet treatment, kennelling, food, bed, toys, treats, collar, lead or harness provided for your adopted dog whilst waiting to be adopted has been paid for by kind donations from supporters or by fundraising activities or from our own pockets.

There is a lot of time, phone calls, travel costs, home-checking and networking needed for each animal which is often given freely by rescue volunteers.

Donation fees in many cases don’t actually cover the full amount that’s been needed to help these dogs, but go a long way to helping the next dog in need.

Without this money, we would struggle to exist to help them. 

We thank you for wanting to adopt your pet and provide him or her with a long and happy home.
