Adoption

The best thing you can do for us is adopting one of our protégés, because in this way you save two lives: the one's you adopt and the one's we can receive into the shelter. The animals taken care of by us can be taken home only in a healthy, inoculated, vermifuge and castrated/spayed (if it is possible) condition after signing an adoption contract.

 

We only live on donations so please if it is possible aid us when you adopt an animal.

 

One of the best things in an animal protector's life is the adoption of one of his/her protégés and the saddest one is when the animal is brought back because the adopters were not prepared for the newcomer. Many of our animals have been beaten, left is the lurch and disappointed in people.

Please, think these points over before you decide to adopt an animal:

 
  • Every animal is a sensitive creature that must be taken care of for a lifetime.

  • A puppy or kitty is not a toy. We cannot throw it out if it has grown up and is not so cute anymore.

  • No matter how your children would like a pet, it is the parents' responsibility to take care of the pet.

  • You need the whole family's agreement to have a pet.

  • Adopting an animal means not only joy but also obligations. Pets need fresh water and food each day. If you keep it in a flat, you should take it for a walk at least twice a day whether it's raining or not.

  • A dog needs love, too. This means that it is not enough to put it into a big garden where it can run a lot. A dog needs activities such as teaching, long walks or playing. If it does not get it, it will find something else to do (torn things, escape, digging) which sometimes is not what the owner wants.

  • An animal must be taught if we want a kind companion. As we do not expect from our children to learn to write and read alone, we should not think that our dog will know how to walk with a leash properly or not jumping up.

  • Animal keeping has huge costs: food, inoculation, equipment, medical treatment. Moreover, the future owner's responsibility to castrate/spay the animal to help to decrease the number of vagrant animals.

  • If you go on holiday, it is your duty to place the animal somewhere. Either bringing it with you or placing it at somebody's house.

  • A puppy's education requires plenty of time, patience and sometimes a sense of humour: house-training, torn things, keeping the biting etc. Nobody should believe that a grown-up dog from a shelter needs less attention and time especially in the beginning when you get used to each other.

  • Most of the grown-up dogs from a shelter are hurt, because they were hit, left in the lurch, were not taken care of or brought back many times, so they need a lot of patience and persistence. No one should expect them to be perfect without any problems. They also need time to accommodate and learn the new rules.

If you can guarantee these points, you are ready for adopting a newcomer. There are a lot of animals waiting for an owner in our shelters, where you can surely find the best mate. You may find a picture and a short description of the animals on our homepage and the organization's own homepage, too. Ask for information from the nearest organization.
