Adopting from SPDC

SPDC’s entire aim is to find loving homes for all our rescued dogs. We have no set criteria for adoptive homes (unlike many rescues especially in the UK). We assess every home on its individual merits. SPDC want a loving safe and happy home for our dogs.

We will match specific dogs to specific homes but we don’t rule a home out if you have young children or if you work. We match a dog to your needs and check to insure you would make adequate provisions for your dog when at work. This is what the homecheck is all about. We talk to our prospective adopters and build a relationship which doesn’t end when you adopt your dog but continues afterwards.

SPDC offer support and rescue Back Up for the life of your adopted dog. If for any reason your adopted dog needed to be rehomed he would come back into the SPDC family and be found another suitable home. No SPDC dog should end up in a UK rescue centre because SPDC will always take responsibility for their dogs.

The adoption process from Cyprus to the UK

The SPDC adoption process starts with a home check. Once this is successful there is an adoption fee of £300 which is to help cover the vet care to get your dog ready to fly. This includes 4dx plus, ehrlichiosis, Lyme disease, and anaplasmosis, leishmania snap test, vaccines including rabies, microchip, deworming pills, neutering if old enough, tick flea treatment, fit-to-fly examination and TRACES-paperwork, and a pet passport.

We arrange all the travel and legal paperwork to import your dog for you. To help cover the cost of transport and paperwork we ask for £375 to be paid 2 weeks before your dog travels. All SPDC dogs travel on pet passports (no quarantine needed) and all dogs have their microchips registered to their adopters and 5 weeks free insurance included in the adoption package.

Our rescue dogs are usually flown to Liege and are transported from there by road with a licensed pet courier to designated drop-off points in the UK where the adopter collects from. SPDC also send dogs on direct flights to the UK where adopters would collect from the airport.

The adoption process for dogs already in UK foster homes

The SPDC adoption process starts with a home check. Once this is successful there is an adoption fee of £400.

All dogs are microchipped and will have all their vaccinations including rabies, blood tests they will be wormed and flea treated and have a pet passport. If old enough they are also neutered. SPDC dogs when adopted have 5 weeks free insurance.
