Minimum Donations

These are applicable from 1st March 2022:

  • Rescue from within UK (UK bred Pointers) – £475 (For the avoidance of doubt, Pointers that are in foster in the UK that have come originally from abroad, then the rates below apply.)
  • Rescue from Spain – £800
  • Rescue from Greece – £1000 (there is an additional courier charge, price TBC)
  • Rescue from Cyprus – £650
  • Rescue from all other locations – POA

We wish to be as transparent as we can on our rescuing costs. The minimum donations shown above include the cost of Vets fees including spay/castration, full blood works, microchipping / rabies vaccine / passport / tick and worming; release fee from the council run pounds, fostering costs, Government IPAFFS (tax), and transportation.

If there are any unexpected changes to our normal costs incurred, we will let you know as soon as we can. By way of example, if the dog has to go into private boarding, there could be an extra €100 approx per month. The adoption team will gladly go through the costs with you.

Supplementary Notes:

1. If you adopt more than 1 dog at a time in one transaction, then we can look at adjusting the minimum donation.

2. The minimum donation is not generally negotiable, but we “may” consider special arrangements in certain circumstances. We will advise you should this be the case.

3. For delivery to addresses in Scotland via road, we regret to have to request an additional £50 charge to cover the increased transport costs. (Unless the dog is already in, and is being rehomed, in Scotland).

4. There is no reimbursement of the minimum donation after 6 months from the date of signing the adoption papers.
