“A dog is the only thing on earth that loves you more than you love yourself.”
If you have adopted a dog, you know how grateful they are. The dogs at Scooby, almost exclusively, came from dire situations. Many have never known a warm touch or a soft bed. We know that there dogs all over the world, and even those in your own towns that need to be adopted. You have chosen to open your home to a Scooby dog, because you understand the difference in what they have endured. You will forever change their life and continue to do so for the others who wait, as you share your dog’s story. We believe it doesn’t matter where you’re dog came from, but the fact that you adopted them!
Although Canada is large, we do adopt within the whole country and we work closely with you to ensure the perfect dog joins your family.
Your dog will be prepared at the shelter with the following:
- vaccinated for rabies, distemper, parvovirus, leptospirosis, hepatitis (DPLH)
- dogs receive blood tests for: heartworm, lyme disease, erlichia, babesia & leishmania
All of this is documented in the European Pet Passport and validated by a licensed veterinarian.
The cost to adopt a dog from Scooby Canada is $650 CND.
*Dogs brought over through the Iberia Airlines Partnership are $450CND.
This includes the following:
- adoption fee
- airfare for dog
- crate for travel
- transport of the dog to the airport in Spain
Our adoption process follows these steps to ensure that all details are in place well in advance of their arrival:
- Please complete the application here and email it to firstname.lastname@example.org.
- We will review your application and let you know if we have any further questions or require clarification on anything.
- We then we move ahead with a Phone Interview >> Home Visit (if required/possible) and Reference Checks.
- Once approved, we reserve your dog and get them prepared for the next available flight.
Please note it can be anywhere from 2-6 months for your dog to arrive. This is simply due to flight availability.
