ADOPTION PROCESS

As Canine Special Adoption Service, we undertake to manage all the preparation of your chosen dog, along with the shelter in Spain.  All dogs are prepared in accordance with DEFRA guidelines on dogs travelling to the UK.  We also make all the arrangements for your dog to travel to the UK and a full information pack is provided prior to your dog arriving which offers advice on receiving your rescue and what to expect.  

All dogs travelling need time to be prepared, this process starts with the implantation of the Microchip, then the Rabies vaccine is given and registered to the microchip to verify.  There is time period of 21 days which must elapse between the Rabies vaccine and the dog travelling and during this time other necessary tests can be carried out.  All the dogs shown on our website are vet checked and healthy, to ensure they are fit for travel.  But these dogs are kept together in cages and thus the blood tests and final checks are important.  It is always possible that the status of a dogs health can change but thankfully the dogs are checked often and so this is rare.  The list below shows the vaccinations and tests completed by the vet prior to the dog travelling:
