Adopt a dog from APROP
Well, there is one of our dogs that you fell in love with, and you want to make it part of your family. What will happen now?
- APROP will have a small interview with you, to find out about the new living situation for the dog.
- APROP will do a house check, to see if where you live is suitable for our dog.
- A pre-adoption contract is signed. This is a trial period of usually 2 weeks for you and the dog, to see if you are suited for each other.
- If all is well, the final adoption contract is signed, you have found yourself a new family member.
Total adoption fee is €150, this covers chip, passport and vaccinations. Of this, €50 is payable on pre-adoption, the balance of €100 to be paid on signing the adoption contract.
Pre-requisites for adoption are:
- You have to be of legal age and you will have to identify yourself with a piece of identity (DNI, NIE, NIF, Passport).
