10 reasons to adopt a rescue dog from APROP

Rehoming an APROP dog is a very rewarding experience and gives our dogs the second chance of a loving home that they deserve. Here are 10 reasons to adopt a dog from APROP.

1. WE’LL HELP YOU FIND YOUR PERFECT MATCH

We aim to match you and your existing pets with a suitable companion. We recognise that everyone’s situation is different and make adopting a dog as stress-free as possible.

2. WE KNOW THAT EVERY DOG IS UNIQUE

All our dogs receive a behaviour and temperament assessment.  APROP dogs interact with their volunteers every day, and these people really get to know their personalities. Particularly with adult dogs, you can find a companion with the type of temperament you’re looking for. You could find a playful, active dog or a calmer dog who needs less exercise and prefers a quieter environment. Our volunteers have knowledge and insight into each animal and can help you make the right choice.

3. WE HAVE DOGS OF ALL SHAPES AND SIZES

We take in lost, abandoned and unwanted dogs of all types, so we never know who is coming through our gates.

4. OUR DOGS RECEIVE A VETERINARY ASSESSMENT

Our vet checks include worming, flea treatment, vaccinations and sterilisation (apart from very young puppies who may need vaccinating and sterilising at the appropriate age).

5. WE REHOME FAR AND WIDE

We find loving homes for our dogs in the Marina Alta area and much further afield – even overseas. Ideally we ask that you are able to travel to our site in Pego to meet them (or to the foster home where appropriate) and we will then arrange a home visit.

It is most important for us to ensure each dog is matched with the right owner wherever that home may be. 

6. YOU WILL BE HELPING TO SUPPORT VULNERABLE ANIMALS

APROP champions and supports vulnerable cats and dogs.  Adopting a dog not only helps one of these many animals, looking for a home, but also opens a space for APROP to take in another dog in need.

7. OUR ADULT DOGS ARE HEALTH CHECKED AND VET TREATED WHICH MEANS YOU DON’T HAVE THE EXPENSE OF THIS YOURSELF. 

Our adult dogs are vet checked, blood tested, vaccinated and sterilised.  The donation we ask for when adopting represents a significant saving on the vet fees you will pay if you adopt a pet from say, a private household, and you also have the confidence that your pet has been checked for the major canine diseases.

8. WE ARE AVAILABLE TO ADVISE YOU AS YOUR PET SETTLES IN TO YOUR HOME

You are not alone when you adopt a pet from APROP. Our volunteers are only an email or phone call away, offering you and your pet support when you need it. 

9. YOU WILL SUPPORT A CHARITY

When you adopt from the APROP shelter you are supporting a not-for-profit organization. APROP relies on the adoption fee and donations from supports to pay the medical and housing expenses of future rescues.

10. FURRY ADDITIONS MAKE HAPPY HOMES

By welcoming these four-legged friends into your life you are guaranteed to have a forever friend that brings lots of love.
