HOW TO ADOPT and TIPS
We – Dogs of Portugal – do adoptions in Portugal and abroad. In (continental) Portugal you can come to shelter where your chosen dog is or we can bring the dog to your home – we are ready to drive a reasonable distance to deliver a dog to you but contact us before about that. We also do adoptions abroad: to Germany, Switzerland, Austria, Belgium, Holland, Sweden, Norway, Denmark and adoptions of galgos and podengos to Italy. How does it work? After a visit to your home by our foreign partner the dog comes to you with vaccinations, required blood tests, passport and electronic chip.
All adult dogs are neutered. If you adopt a puppy from us, you sign an adoption form in which you undertake the commitment to neuter.
Most of our dogs come from Cantinho da Milu (Milu’s corner). This shelter is a private farm in Portugal belonging to a brave lady, Milu, who has over 400 dogs rescued from the streets. The dogs are well treated, vaccinated, neutered but in need of real homes.
Please see the webpage of the Cantinho (in Portuguese): http://www.ocantinhodamilu.com or follow the present blog.
