How to adopt a dog abroad?
Our shelter is located in Lourinhã, 45 minutes from the capital Lisbon by the A8 motorway (you can rent a car at the airport).
We are open every day of the year from 11:30am to 1pm.
To adopt, you must bring your Passport with you, this is the document necessary to fill out the Adoption Form. For a dog to be able to travel outside of Portugal we have to deal with his International Passport where vaccines, deworming and travel certificate are included as well as the registration of the chip.
If you want to take the dog by plane:
-You will have to make sure that the airline you are traveling transports animals and make a pre-reservation where the cost of the trip is simulated.
- Buy a carrier suitable for the dog size. (Depending on availability JAVA Association lends the carrier that must be returned by express mail upon arrival at the destination) The cost of the trip will depend on the weight of the dog and the size of the carrier and it will be charged on the day of travel at the airport Check in.
