Transporting Animals within Europe
If you are are in any European country and wish to adopt or foster one of our Algarve Rescue Animals this can be arranged. This normally takes around a week or so to arrange so please bear this in mind.We use a specialist animal transport service so rest assured your chosen animal will be in safe hands and will arrive in good health and happy to meet their new owners and explore their new homes.
All animals will have been microchipped and will have had a full screening from our veterinary doctor. All of our animals are splayed or neutered, except younger animals, and will have been fully vaccinated against all diseases.

All animals must be Microchipped
Though most European countries impose different rules based on where you’re starting your journey, all of them require that dogs be microchipped prior to their rabies vaccination.
Free Movement EU
The adoption of harmonised rules on travelling with pets has made it easier for EU citizens and their dogs, cats and other animals to enjoy the freedom of movement within the Union.
Fight Against Rabies
This significant step was made possible by dramatic advances made in the fight against rabies.
EU Health Certificate
This will be provided by your PetRelocation Specialist. This is the standard Health Certificate to be filled out by your accredited veterinarian and must be signed in a different colour than that of the certificate’s printing (usually blue ink).
It is suggested that all pets have full vaccinations, as well: Dogs: Distemper, Hepatitis, Leptospirosis, Parainfluenza and Parvovirus (DHLPP) and Bordetella. Cats: Feline Viral Rhinotracheitis, Calicivirus and Panleukopenia (FVRCP).
