Adoption Process & Fostering a Dog


The adoption process starts when you make contact with Care and we discuss what suitable dogs we have for you. We always ask if you have owned a dog before, what your working arrangements are, and if you have a garden.

We also arrange home visits or video calls (where visits in person are not possible) which is when we will formalise the adoption and it’ll be an opportunity for you to ask us any questions.


Once adoption is agreed, a payment of £850 will be due to cover the following costs:

-Transport to the UK (to your door)



-Necessary paperwork

We also ask at the same time that you make a donation. As we are a non profit making charity we rely so heavily on donations to keep the shelter going and help with the day to day running costs. Anything you can donate is hugely appreciated.

The payment methods are as follows:

Bank Transfer

Account Name: CARE (Corfu Animal Rescue Establishment)

Account number: 43340270

Sort code: 15-99-00



Please kindly reference all payments with the name of the dog you are adopting.


Until our animals find a new forever family they need somewhere to stay.

The CARE team are always in need of finding suitable foster homes for many of their unwanted dogs or puppies until a permanent home if found. Depending on how quickly a new home is found, this can range from one week to several months.

If you are lucky enough to live in Corfu and willing to look after a dog or puppy, please contact Gwen Stewart on (00 30 (69) 72072155 for further information.

Please scroll through the list of dogs and puppies that are desperately seeking a foster or permanent home and if you can help, pick up that telephone and call Gwen who will be only too pleased to help and arrange a visit to see your potential foster dog or puppy.


If you would like to sponsor any animal on our website please send us an email confirming which dog, cat or horse you would like to sponsor on a monthly basis. You can donate each month on line or arrange for a standing order through your own bank. Our full bank details can be found on ‘Donate Now’ header.

Mimi and Maggie have been sponsored by Helen Warner – Thank you very much to Helen.

Wilma and Pebbles have also been sponsored by Helen, to which we are so grateful.
