Find out about pet adoption at Valle Verde Animal Rescue

Adoption for all the animals that we rescue is our end goal

There will be many people who will care for your new pet on his or her journey to you, but without you we could not function at all. We receive new reports of abandoned puppies and kittens every day, as well as cases of abuse and neglect. These animals have been discarded and the love, care and security that you can offer them will ensure them the happy life that they deserve.

What is required of you?

Subject to a home check, you can adopt one or more of our cats or dogs wherever you live. Certain fees apply relating to transport and getting the animal fit and ready to travel. These fees vary according to the individual animal’s needs and your location.

What you can expect from us?

We organise foster care and get your new pet ready to travel i.e. vaccinated, neutered, chipped and passported… and then it’s over to you.
