Information regarding the adoptions in Austria and Germany

  • Save the Dogs works on the basis of written agreements with local partners in Austria and in Germany. The choice of the adoptive families and the control over the adoptions is the responsibility of the partners.
  • The animals are being treated against internal and external parasites and vaccinated against major diseases, including the anti-rabies vaccine as required by the EU legislation (at least 21 days before the departure).
  • All animals are being microchipped and have a Eeuropean passport. Every departure is being introduced in the electronic system Traces, which allows the authorities of the receiving country to check the condition of the animals entering the country and follow their trail.
  • Our animals are always being sprayed/neutered.
  • The dogs are subjected to screening of six of the main diseases transmitted by parasites through Snap test Idexx or laboratory tests PCR (cardiopulmonary filariasis, ehrlichiosis, Lyme disease, anaplasmosis and leishmaniasis).
  • The animals travel with an authorized mini van equipped with all the comforts.
  • The cost for the transport of our animals is covered by the partners, who also offer our association part of the contribution donated by the adoptive families.
