What you need to know when adopting an animal from Macedonia to UK

Please read the process and review the new cost breakdown as per the updated regulations in UK after Brexit.

  1. After choosing a dog you like, please go ahead and fill an application: http://www.animalloversstrumica.com/adoption…/
    (Only one application needs to be completed to be considered for any dog, and prior to submitting the application please ensure that your entire family has decided, that you are fine with meeting the dog before adopting it only over a video call. All of our dogs are located in Macedonia and only travel to the UK once they have found their forever homes.)
  2. After reviewing the applications, someone from our team will get in contact with you over e-mail to schedule a video call. Only if you are chosen for the dog you applied you will be contacted after 2-5 days upon submitting your application. That doesn’t mean you are not a suitable adopter for any other dog, so please contact us instead and we can always arrange a call to chat more: animal.lovers2017@gmail.com
  3. We won’t take much from your time, just quickly getting to know each other and you can also meet the dog over cam.
  4. After the phone call if successful you will receive a copy of the adoption agreement and we will require a reservation fee of £100 as many people has the habit to cancel last minute (that amount is not on top of the adoption fee, will be withdrawn from the total cost below)
  5. Full Payment is required a few days before travel so we can pay timely for documents and transport on your behalf
  6. After the dogs are picked up from N.Macedonia, we will do a group chat with all rescues, adopters and the driver and you will receive regular updates where they are.

If any questions please get in touch over e-mail: animal.lovers2017@gmail.com
