Adopt A Dog
Adopting a Dog From Hope VMS ELAINE'S Dogs
Thank you for thinking about adopting one of our wonderful dogs. Many people have given loving homes to members of our shelter family. We have adopted out over 270 dogs to Slovenia, Germany, United Kingdom, Austria, Italy, Belgium, Croatia, and, of course, Bosnia.
Have a look at our “Success Stories” page to see and learn about some of the fantastic happy-ever-afters.
Look at our "Adopted Dogs" pages of the many, many dogs we have successfully rehomed over the years.
Adopting from our shelter is probably easier than you think and you’ll find all the information you need here. Before adoption, all dogs are vaccinated, microchipped, treated for worms and fleas, and have their own passports. To help defer those costs, we ask for a donation fee of £500 (approx €593) which includes adoption fee and transportation costs. As the transport costs do vary, we can help with fundraising for these costs if necessary.
There are three easy steps to adopting:
You will also be asked to sign a “Homing Contract” with us. If you have any questions before, during, or after the process, please get in touch and we will be happy to help.
Alternatively, Fosterers are always wanted. If you feel you could help in the short term to foster one of ours dogs, please complete the foster application form here.

Experienced Owners Only
The reason why we insist that potential adopters for this dog are experienced dog owners is 2-fold :-
1. The dog is timid with some humans because of its past experiences on the streets.
2. There may be a need for extra training once the dog arrives in the UK e.g. extra lead training because of the dog's traumatic experience at the hands of the dog catchers.
We trust that you understand why we insist on this for our dogs.
