UPDATED APRIL 2021
It was not surprising that we had to suspend adoptions several months ago. The reasons for this decision were mainly a result of Covid transport restrictions across the UK and Europe and the implementation of new regulations resulting from Brexit. The two scenarios together were impossible to navigate and we are only just beginning to see our way through the administrative maze which allows dogs to enter the UK. The new processes also mean that costs are significantly higher as we now also attract import duty and VAT on each dog. It is an extremely frustrating situation as we know only too well how important it is to offer these poor animals the chance of a wonderful life but, every which way we tried, we hit another brick wall. We are hopeful that the coming weeks things will improve.
I WILL AMEND THIS POST ONCE THE SITUATION CHANGES.
PLEASE DO NOT SUBMIT COMPLETED QUESTIONNAIRES AT THIS TIME BUT WAIT FOR OUR RESTRICTIONS TO BE LIFTED. THE ONLY ONES THAT WE WILL CURRENTLY ACCEPT ARE FROM THOSE WHO HAVE PREVIOUSLY ADOPTED FROM US.
Please fill out this Pre-Adoption Questionnaire and email it to: [email protected], then Lyn will contact you for a friendly chat. If you don’t know how to answer some of the questions it’s important to just say you don’t know. We need to be aware of your level of experience as it helps us to guide you in your choice of dog. Some adopters have more experience than others which is fine.
The level of cruelty, neglect and abuse in Greece is shocking and it is ‘the norm’ that animals be treated in such a way. Strays are beaten, poisoned and killed; they don’t stand a chance without our help. Please consider adopting a Greek dog to bring them out of their extremely cruel and miserable conditions; at the same time it frees a space for another to be rescued.
