How to adopt from Scooby

Apart from financial support, you can help us by adopting one of our many dogs. Generally speaking Galgos are the perfect pets who adjust easily to their new environment, who hardly bark and seldom pull the leash. In most countries these dogs are not allowed to walk without a leash as a result of their strong hunting instinct. However these dogs need enough exercise, especially when they are young. If you consider adopting a Galgo you therefore need to spend enough time walking the dog and giving him or her your attention. Don’t like Galgos? We have every type of dog or cat you can think of.

Before leaving the Scooby shelter all dogs and cats are:

  • spayed/neutered
  • vaccinated for rabies, distemper, parvovirus, leptospirosis, adenovirus (hepatitis)
  • blood tested – Mediterranean diseases. Cats are vaccinated, but not blood tested unless specifically requested
  • microchipped

All of this is documented in the European Pet Passport and validated by a licensed veterinarian.

Scooby has set up an adoption-program in cooperation with local Scooby offices and rescue organizations in Europe. Throughout the year, Scooby transports dogs and cats to the cooperating organizations, located in Belgium, France, Germany, Holland, Italy and Switzerland. We also have volunteers coming from the USA and bring back dogs for adoption through their rescue organizations, located in Colorado, Virginia, New Jersey, New York and Massachusetts. Each organization has its own set of adoption policies and rules which are followed for each adoption.
