Frequently Asked Questions
There is a link to the online application form within the details of each of our dogs, however you can access the form directly by clicking here.
If you are interested in multiple dogs then please only fill out ONE application form and list the dogs you are interested in on that single form. Please do not submit multiple applications, one per dog, as we are a very small team of volunteers and this adds to our already heavy workload.
Most of our dogs are neutered before travelling to the UK. In the case of small puppies and very old dogs, or dogs with or recently suffering from medical problems, we will be guided by the veterinary team in Romania as to whether it is safe and appropriate for them to be neutered prior to travel. Please discuss this with the rehoming team prior to adoption.
Like humans, every dog is different. Many love children, but some are not suitable for living with children, or may not be suitable for living with very young children. Should you have your heart set on a particular dog from our website that is sadly not right for your family circumstances, we will discuss this with you and do our best to find the right dog for all of you.
Many of our dogs have gone to live happily with new owners in properties without a garden (flats/apartments etc.) We recognise that everyone’s circumstances are different so we treat all of our potential adopters and dogs as individuals. We would try and match you up with a dog that we think would be best for you, your home and, of course for the dog.
We ask all our potential adopters about any outside space their property may have and, as part of the home check process, the home checker will look at your environment and whether it is suitable for the dog you want to adopt and may make recommendations.
The process for fostering is the same as for adopting. You should complete our online application form with details of the dog(s) you are interested in. Our adoption team will review this and contact you to arrange a home check if your application is deemed suitable. If the home check is carried out and all is fine, then a fostering contract needs to be completed and signed.
Generally, yes. If there is a particular dog you are interested in fostering, we are happy to consider it. Otherwise we will talk to you about dogs and puppies that need our help and see whether any of them would be a good fit for you.
Normally we will try to arrange a collection location within an hour of your home address. Due to geographies we have to make different arrangements for Scotland and the Isle of Man. One of our adoptions team would contact you to discuss specific arrangements for the collection of your dog.
Yes, all dogs will have a rabies vaccination, a course of DHLPP (Distemper, Hepatitis, Leptospirosis, Parvo, Parainfluenza) vaccinations and the Kennel Cough vaccination (except in the case of older dogs where we do not give the KC vaccination).
There are three main parts to the adoption process. Firstly, you should complete our online application form with details of the dog(s) you are interested in. If you are interested in multiple dogs then please only complete ONE form, listing all the dogs. Please don't complete one form per dog as this increases our workload. Our adoptions team will review this and contact you to arrange a home check if your application is deemed suitable. If the home check is carried out and all is fine, then an adoption contract needs to be completed and signed. The process for adopting an Amicii dog is the same, regardless of whether the dog is currently in the UK or in Romania.
