The Fee


The Fee


Once the adoption has been agreed, and prior to collection of the dog, we ask you for a fee to contribute towards the preparation of your dog for travel to the UK.


The flight date is then set and just before the flight, and we would ask for the flight and transport costs to be paid, and you can pick up your dog from the nearest airport or drop off point which can vary depending on the route.


The fee forms a contribution towards the costs accrued during preparation and travel to the UK.


Please see below for an indication of costs.
