Adopting a Dog or Puppy
Dogs for Adoption
If you would be interested in giving one of our dogs a forever home, please contact us.
Perhaps you can't adopt a dog? Then maybe you could consider fostering a dog until we find his / her forever home.
If you are unable to adopt or foster, please help us to bring the dogs to the UK and avoid them getting put to sleep by volunteering, donating or attending a fundraising event (all proceeds go to rescuing the dogs).
If you can't see your dog here but would like to adopt ... then please contact us ... there are new dogs being rescued every day!
Common questions we are asked
How much does it cost to rehome a dog or puppy from Jodie's Cyprus Dogs Rehoming?
We ask for a £150 NON-REFUNDABLE deposit to reserve a dog for you (only refundable in the case of a failed homecheck). A deposit shows commitment on your part, and allows us to confidently proceed. The remaining £285 will need to be paid at least 10 days before your dog arrives.
To make your deposit or payment, simply make on online bank transfer to the account below, and put the name of the dog you would like to reserve as the reference. Don't forget to also contact us!
What are you bank account details to make a payment?
Important: Please contact us if you don't have the facility for online banking for other options.

How does the adoptions process work?
When a match is found, we will send you more information about how to reserve that dog and outline the adoption process in full detail.
Will I need to have a home check?
What happens if I've paid my deposit to secure a dog then I fail my home check?
What vaccinations will my dog have? Will my dog have a passport? Will my dog have a microchip?
All dogs are wormed and given flea treatment before the flight, in accordance to the law.
We only vaccinate against rabies as this is the only required vaccination to fly. If you wish to vaccinate further, this will be down to you once the dog is adopted. Some dogs do receive a 'yearly vaccine' or 'puppy vaccine' as is recommended by vets in the UK prior to flying, but this depends on the shelter they were rescued from (please ask if you are unsure). Please note that these vaccinations are not required for entry into the UK or for dog owners in the UK - it is the dog owner's choice whether to vaccinate or not.
All dogs are vet checked before their flight, and any medications / special requirements will be discussed with the adopter. We also conduct tests for Leishmaniasis ‘where applicable’ as an extra precaution.
How do I collect my adopted dog?
Delivery of your dog may be at an unsociable time (due to the dogs and volunteers making sometimes over a 24 hour trip). We try our best to make the journey short and the time reasonable as best as we can. There may sometimes be delays, but you will be informed if this happens.
If you are not able to travel to the meeting point and need us to deliver the dog to you, this may be an option (depending on location), however a fuel cost will be incurred
Our dogs fly from Cyprus to Paris and are always accompanied by one or more volunteer. They then travel via the Euro tunnel to England.
Does the dog have to go into quarantine?
They need microchipping, rabies vaccinations, a passport and no more than 48Hrs and no less than 24Hrs before flying they have tick, flea and tapeworm treatment.
What are TRACES?
Do I need to sign any agreement?
What happens if we don't want to keep the dog?
Please note that the £435 is NON-REFUNDABLE after you have committed to the adoption. If you decide that you don’t want the dog / it isn't something you want to do we will not be able to refund you, as we still would have paid for passport / vet checks / rabies vaccination / microchipping / neutering and flight.
Is the dog spayed/ neutered?
We advocate spaying and neutering and do not want any rescue dogs to be used to breed from.
