Since we only work in the best interest of our animals, there are conditions that potential adopters need to fulfill. We present, in brief outline, the Adoption conditions which have been in force for long. We ask all potential adopters to consider if they meet the requirements.

Dog adoption conditions:

  1. Dogs are adopted into a flat or house with a well fenced yard in case the dog would stay outside the house.
  2. No chains, kennels etc.!
  3. Access to the house for the dog is obligatory.
  4. If the dog has not been neutered yet, it is the new owner’s obligation. In this case, the Association provides several veterinary clinics to choose from to neuter the dog at a favourable price.
  5. Consent of every household member to adopt the dog is obligatory.
  6. The care of the dog in accordance with the Animal Protection Act is obligatory.

  1. Cats are adopted into a flat or house which is away from a major road.
  2. The windows and balconies in the flat have to be secured with a safety net preventing the cat from jumping off.
  3. It is obligatory to have a cat scratcher or a cat tree in a flat (recommended in a house with the access to the yard as well).
  4. If the cat has not been neutered yet, it is the new owner’s obligation. In this case, the Association provides several veterinary clinics to choose from to neuter the cat at a favourable price.
