A large part of our work is to find suitable places for our charges via the website, as this is also a great help to our partner animal shelters.
You are welcome to email or call us if you have decided on a particular animal. However, we are very reluctant to accept enquiries via Whatsapp, for example, as this is too time-consuming for us and it is easier to answer questions on the PC or the telephone.
We are happy to answer all your questions about the animal and since we have direct contact to contact persons in the animal shelters, we also try to find out if there is something in particular that interests you.
Now we will look for a person who lives near you and who will come to your home to do a preliminary visit. This person will simply check in a nice conversation whether the circumstances are as you have described them to us.
If the animal is still in another EU country, we will now organise transport.
You will be informed in good time about the arrival and the place of transport, and you will then be allowed to receive the animal there.
If the dog has been with you for a while, we may also carry out follow-up checks after some time.
In the meantime, we are always happy to receive photos and reports from our former fosterlings, these pictures then end up with us under "Home found". Of course, we are always ready to help and advise you, no matter how long the dog has been with you.
All animals are only sold in the EU. We ask for your understanding in this matter.
Our dogs are vet-checked before adoption, vaccinated, dewormed, microchipped and, if they come from Spain, tested for leishmaniasis, neutered if they are one year and older.
Normally, this information, whether a dog is neutered, is always included with the individual dogs. You are also welcome to ask the respective intermediary.
When taking over a dog, there is a protection fee of 400 Euros for an unneutered dog and 450 Euros for a neutered dog. All dogs over one year of age are neutered.
This fee is divided as follows:
100 EUR placement fee goes to Animal Friends Europe for its numerous activities, e.g. food procurement for the animal shelters, which is sent from Germany to Spain via ZooPlus because the food is cheaper here than in Spain.
350 EUR protection fee goes to Spain or Romania for transport, TRACES, chip, vaccination, castration, Mediterranean check, medical first aid, worming, etc. for a castrated dog.
For an unneutered dog it is 300 Euros, which goes directly to Spain or Romania. Transport, TRACES, chipping, vaccination, initial medical treatment, worming etc. are also paid for.
In the case of animals that have been fostered from abroad, Animal Friends Europe will pay for the transport in advance and these 100 Euros must then be paid to Animal Friends Europe after the placement (i.e. a total of 200 Euros).
In exceptional cases for dogs over eight years of age and disabled dogs, only a protective fee of 250 euros is charged.
We also place kitties. Here, too, a questionnaire is sent to interested parties and a preliminary check is also carried out in any case.
All cats are chipped from 5 to 6 months, vaccinated, neutered and tested for FIV and leucosis. We charge a protection fee of 230 Euros for a kitty. This also includes the transport fee.
For un-neutered cats we charge a protection fee of 180 Euros. This also includes the transport fee.
If there is any money left over, we can use it to help finance larger projects, to buy transport boxes and other utensils that are urgently needed in the animal shelters.
Not a penny of this money goes towards staff costs, as we all work purely on a voluntary basis and for the benefit of the animals.
