the adoption donation
Our organization makes no profit from your adoption donation. The adoption fees we charge go towards covering some of the basic expenses which our organization has already made in order to prepare these animals so that they can be rehomed successfully. This includes neutering, micro-chipping and protecting them against parasites and all the relevant tests needed to make sure you are getting a healthy pet. We actually spend more money than what we get from the adoption donation in order to prepare them for their new life. Some animals also require major surgery and foster care and work by a qualified trainer before they can be adopted, we cover all these expenses and is the reason why we actively do fundraising and events in order to cover these expenses. Adopting an animal from 2nd Chance 4 Life costs a lot less than buying an animal from a breeder or pet store. The adoption donation does not cover the cost of running our Rescue, Rehabilitation and Re-homing center nor feeding or any specialized care the animal may have needed before it was ready for healthy and ready adoption.
& What is included
What is included
In adoption fee for dogs
When we say that our ”dogs are ready for adoption” this means that our dogs are healthy and ready to be placed in a home.
All of our dogs upon arrival to our center receive tick and flea treatment, dewormed and receive all of their Vaccines. They are also immediately tested for Heartworm, Lyme, Ehrlichia Canis & Anaplasmosis by means of the 4DX test. Further more they are also tested for Leishmania by taking a blood sample and sending it to the Government vet services.
Dogs adopted that are traveling abroad
All pets that are traveling abroad to their forever home, by law need to get their rabies vaccination, a passport so that they can travel, a pre-flight check preformed by a qualified registered vet and a **Government traces certificate issued by the vet services in Cyprus. Then in order to fly we transport them to the airport that they will depart from and safely place them into a IATA Certified Travel Crate. (which you get to keep and can be used as a crate at home).
Just to make sure that you know what you are getting we have a qualified Trainer to give your their evaluation of the dog that will soon be part of your family, we want to be sure that you are fully aware of the pets character, temperament and behavior.
** The Government traces certificate (35 Euros) is not included in the adoption donation.
