Why and how to adopt?
To Save a Life
Most of our rescue animals would not survive on the street. Adoption is the way they get a new chance for a happy long life after they are saved. By adopting a cat or dog saved from street, you also save the life of this animal, and give us the opportunity to save the next one.
To Not Stimulate Illegal or Inhumane Animal Life Trade
Most pets bought from an animal shop are bred in an unnatural way. They stay long in tight cells, not always with good ventilation and hygiene, which also harms their health and behavior. In some countries, animal trading in stores is already banned and it is considered inhumane.
By buying an animal from a store to save him from the cage, you stimulate the breeding of the next similar one in a cage and breeding business thrives.
Many of the kennels and breeders in Bulgaria are in a way illegal or do not work entirely according to rules and ethics. Often, we find animals thrown to the street by illegal breeders, and these animals are often sick, rather weak or traumatized.
If a pet is not a life stock for you and it matters for you how animals are treate, then adoption is the right thing for you!
Breed or non-breed, mixed breed rescue pet?
Breed and pedigree animals are often prone to certain genetic diseases typical of the breed. It is good to consult a veterinarian before making your choice. Various studies have shown that mix breed and rescue animals are often healthier and stronger, because of the richness of genes and natural selection.
If, however, you hold on to some breed or appearance of your future pet, but you don’t certainly need pedigree proof documents, it is important to state, that we and other rescue organizations also have some rescued animals, which look like certain popular breeds.
Breed, appearance and age do not always guarantee you a good choice of a pet. We strongly believe that the character of the dog, cat, puppy or kitten is the most important feature of the pet.
Clear health status, passport, chip, castration/ neutering and vaccines
Most kittens and dogs are given for adoption after a series of tests for the most popular animal diseases. Such tests are not done by most private individuals and even some breeders in Bulgaria. Taking an animal from us, you will surely know its health status and its behavior, which is important for your future happy cohabitation together without unpleasant surprises. As a bonus, most of our animals are given for adoption by chip, vaccine, passport and after castration, which saves you extra costs and headaches.
What is the adoption process – step by step
Step 1: is to to complete a short questionnaire or have a phone conversation with us, in order to understand more about you and what is good to discuss further. We often give advice and recommendations how to chose the best fitting you animal, follow up care and training etc. This information is very useful for people with less experience with pets;

Step 2: is to meet the animal(s) you liked and see whether you match as character;
Step 3: is to prepare yourself and your home for the newcomer – buying food and all the necessary equipment such as leash, toilet box and litter, etc. This step includes also a home check up – is it safe and ready to meet a pet. If you do not know what to do and how to prepare, we give advice and guidelines on the spot. For example, people often do not know that for cats’ safety it is important (necessary with us for adoption process) to have window nets in order to prevent accidents or even fatal ending (unfortunately, such happen quite often).
Step 4: is to sign an adoption agreement which regulates the responsibilities of each party – ‘us’ as NGO and ‘you’ as ADOPTER(S)
Step 5: you can take from us and bring home your new furry family member.
The adoption process is not long and complicated itself, it can happen within 2 days with good will and good timing. All the steps described above are important to us, to assure that our rescued animals will go to good and caring families and their story will happily continue.
