Hear Marina tell us about adopting a dog

Step 1 - Read on!

Start by reading through ours claims and guarantees. Take a few days to think about what you can offer a dog and what you have in store for a new family member.

Do you live an adventurous, sporty and active life that the dog should participate in? Do you enjoy strolling in green areas and having a faithful friend next to you on the sofa when the evening comes? Who should be a dog guard when you have to leave your dog? And most importantly; Do you have the patience, empathy and dog knowledge that will be required of you when you and your dog encounter problems?

Step 2 - Submit your Interest Report!

If you feel that you meet the requirements that we impose on our adopters and want to give one of our dogs a loving and good life, then it is now time to take a closer look at the dogs that are relevant for adoption and fill out a declaration of interest. On the homepage you will find basic information about each dog and further knowledge about the individual dogs can be found at DogRescue's placeholder.

Step 3 - Get in touch

When your registration of interest has been received, you will soon be contacted by one of our investors. When the investment manager returns to you by phone, we then have the opportunity to ask questions to each other and jointly discuss the possible choice of dog. It is the job of the investor to ensure that the right dog comes to the right home and that every dog ​​gets the very best conditions in his new life. It may therefore happen that we do not agree with your favorite dog, but instead suggest another dog that we think will suit you better.

Step 4 - The dog is booked

In order for a dog to be booked, both you and the investor must feel satisfied and confident with the decision. A night's sleep before the final decision is made is therefore necessary for both parties. When you book your dog it is an advantage if you have also thought through when you can receive the dog. The time should be chosen so that you can stay home with the dog for the first few weeks. We cannot at this time promise a travel date for the dog, but we will plan for the dog to come as close to the desired time as possible.

When your dog is booked

  • Transfer for dog: 4 months - 7 years is SEK 6.300 and for dog from 7 years and up, the sum is SEK 4.800
  • You can choose to pay the full amount depending on what the dog's transfer is at the time of booking.
  • Alternatively, you pay SEK 2000 at the time of booking and the remaining amount at least 7 days before the arrival of the dog.
  • The money is deposited at DogRescues BankGiro 614 – 9066 and in the message field, enter your first and last name + the dog's name.
  • If it is the association that for some reason cancels your dog, you will get back the entire booking fee, but if it is you who suddenly chooses to cancel a dog that is being prepared for return home, you will not get this fee back. 


Before arrival

  • About 10-14 days in advance, you are informed by telephone of a definite date and time for the dog's arrival. About 2-7 days before arrival, you will be called by your Contact Person, for a call in peace and quiet, regarding the practical things about the return home. When you finally go to Arlanda to pick up your dog there should be no unanswered questions that make you feel insecure or insecure.
  • At Arlanda, you and the other Adopters meet a representative from DogRescue, about half an hour before the plane's arrival time. The formal transfer agreement must then be signed in duplicate, of which DogRescue retains one and you retain the other. The signature also means that you approve our “claims and guarantees".
  • Then you receive your Romanian friend, who curiously or carefully gets out of his air transport cage. You get help to put on the necklace and leash that you have brought with you. Also, make sure you have a bowl of water and something really good to treat your dog to - a meatball can help even the most shy dog ​​overcome their fears! It can also be a good idea to bring dog poop bags and a roll of kitchen paper. Many dogs experience that the floor at Arlanda is uncomfortable to walk on, so be prepared that you may have to carry your dog out to the car.


After arrival

  • Shortly after your return home, you will be called by your Contact person again. Your Contact Person will follow you, and your dog during your first half year together in Sweden.
  • When you adopt a dog through DogRescue, you also have access to the Adopters' own Facebook group “Spreaders of Joy” - where dog owners and activists in the association meet in the dog's character.
  • There is nothing that makes us as happy as when things are going well for our "new Swedes". Therefore, feel free to send in a small text and a couple of pictures of your dog info@dogrescue.se which we can publish on the website under "Homecoming dogs".
