Adopt a dog

Ukraine, place unknown | 2016 08 | Topa the dog.

We strongly advise to adopt a dog from a shelter rather than buying one. In some countries healthy animals can be still be legally killed after some days if they are not adopted, so your decision to adopt can literally save a life.

Below you find the links to national websites that list public and private shelters you can contact to adopt a dog.
