GAR Dogs available for adoption
There are hundreds of thousands of stray animals in Greece and they all deserve a loving home. Unfortunately we can bring over only a small number due to the expenses involved. Below are photos and details of dogs who are currently ready for rehoming.
If you are interested in adopting one of our dogs, please complete our pre adoption questionnaire form which is available to download in
All GAR dogs are microchipped, vaccinated and sterilised and 'prepared' for entering the UK according to DEFRA requirements. In addition, they are blood-tested for tick-borne and other diseases. These tests are not required under the PETS travel scheme, but we feel they are important to ensure that adopted dogs are healthy.
As we are only able to home check in the South-East, potential adopters must live in the following areas: East and West Sussex, Surrey, Hampshire, Essex, parts of Kent and Hertfordshire. We will of course consider adopting to homes outside of the South-East provided we a have a volunteer in your area who is able to carry out a home check.
