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 homecheck, once this is successful there is an adoption fee of 165 euros for a puppy and 195 euros for an adult dog. The adoption fee covers tests for 4dx plus for heartworm disease, ehrlichiosis, Lyme disease, and anaplasmosis, leishmania snap test, vaccines and rabies, microchip, deworming pills, neutering (if old enough), tick flea treatment, fit-to-fly examination and TRACES-paperwork, and an EU-pet passport. SPDC dogs when adopted have 5 weeks free insurance.

When the flight is arranged, transport costs need to be paid in addition to the adoption fee, transport costs are usually between £250 to £350. We arrange all the travel and legal paperwork to import your dog for you. All SPDC dogs travel on pet passports and have their microchips registered.

Our rescue dogs are usually flown to Paris with Aegean and are transported by road with a licensed pet courier to various drop-off points in the U.K. where the adopter collects from. SPDC also send dogs on direct flights to the UK where adopters would collect from the airport. The transport costs will be more accurate when we know where you live in the UK.
