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 130 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.

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 430 Euros (approx £360) 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:

  1. Take a look at the photos of the wonderful dogs below. When you’ve found one you’d like to know more about, fill out the adoption form here. One of our volunteers will be back in touch.
  2. A home visit will then be arranged. You will be contacted to set up a convenient time for a home visit to come around and chat. This is vital in making sure that dog and home are a good match.
  3. Following a successful home visit, we can start to make arrangements for transporting the dog from the shelter.

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.

EXTREMELY IMPORTANT INFORMATION. PLEASE READ.

WE NEED YOUR HELP IN ORDER TO SAFELY PLACE OVER 25 of our DOGS.

We have had visits from Bosnian officials since spring of 2019. We have complied with the shelter upgrades they’ve wanted us to incorporate.

NOW THEY ARE TELLING US WE ARE ONLY ALLOWED TO HAVE 80 DOGS AT THE SHELTER. With just 3 months to find homes or fosters for over 25 dogs.

PLEASE HELP US. We cannot let the authorities take any of our dogs away to the public kill shelter. Maya has lovingly cared for these dogs for 5 years now. She knows each dog by name and can tell you everything about each dog.

If you know of anyone who can foster or who would like to adopt. Please send them our way. An inquiry or adoption/foster application can be easily filled out on our website.

This was a surprise visit and a complete shock. We have had over 130 adoptions, but we simply do not naturally adopt out over 20 dogs in a 3 month period.

WE CANNOT FAIL. Our dogs deserve a safe place to live- not based on the whims of Bosnian officials who seem to enjoy setting up rescues to fail.

Thank you all for your ongoing love and help. We will have a whole new round of upgrades that the shelter will need, but right now we are focusing on keeping our dogs safe.
