Here is Blackie, renamed Bella, one of our shelter pups with her new parent - Blackie was adopted in September 2019.
***To make sure our animals get the best care possible, DAS will provide free yearly vacinations, free spay or neuter and free vet consults when needed.
However, adopters are required to pay for medication / surgery etc if needed.
All our animals have histories of either abuse, neglect or injury - often at the hands of people.
Our aim is not to get them out of the shelter as soon as possible - it is to try to ensure that they will spend the rest of their lives surrounded by the love and care that they deserve. That their needs are taken care of and that they are able to receive veterinary treatment when needed.
Many people believe that we should give away these animals for free -that they have less value because they are rescues or because they are not 'breeds'. But ALL animals have equal value.
Our rescues have been cared for and loved at the shelter. They are free to roam, they play and have fun, they are well fed and they are treated when sick. They are fully vaccinated and neutered if old enough. We need to ensure that this standard of care continues.
For this reason we have strict criteria for adoption.
- 500 pesos fee ( if you object to this or cannot afford this, then you are not a suitable adopter)
- Home visit from DAS representative.
- Not tied up or caged for any length of time.
- Able to provide a home for the duration of the animal's lifetime.
- Able to afford basic Vet care when needed
- Treated as part of the family.
If you would like to adopt one of our dogs, please visit our rescue page and click on the picture of the animal you are interested in adopting to find out more.
You will then need to fill in a form so that we can assess if you are a suitable adopter and decide which animals might be the best fit for you.
Forms can be obtained by messaging Stella, our adoptions manager, via the facebook messenger facility - click here.
Once the forms have been submitted and approved, we will set an appointment for you to visit the sanctuary to meet your potential adoptee.
All that is left to do is the home visit. Once that has been done you can take your new family member home.
