Private International Adoptions

International Adoptions are very simple to do. We ask you to fill out an application form, and provide vet and personal references. We may include a home check if we have partners with local rescues in the area. After an application has been approved, we team together to find an escort to bring the dog to the closest international airport possible. On the date of travel, we arrange all paperwork and check-in of the dog and escort and keep you informed of the process. You then pick up the dog at the airport, as you would any other family member!!

Approx fees involved:

  • Vet certificate fee – $50
  • Crate fee – $90
  • Transport fee – $50-200 (Varies on Airline)
  • Adoption Fee – $0, but donations are welcome!

We ask for no adoption fees, as we know that other costs can add up when it comes to adopting internationally, but we do accept any and all donations.
