Adopting a dog is an excellent choice, but with careful consideration so that an informed decision can be made.

By adopting a Pepi dog you will be giving him or her a second chance in addition to providing space to save the life of another abused / abandoned dog.

Questions to ask yourself before choosing to adopt.

  • If you have no previous experience with dogs, have you done some research into how to take care of the needs of the dog?
  • Will your working hours allow enough time to provide the necessary care, attention and exercise for the dog on a daily basis?
  • Are you able to cover the cost of food, veterinary care, monthly heart-worm and flea control etc?
  • Do you have sufficient time available and are committed to provide obedience and toilet training if necessary, to help the dog adapt to living in a home?
  • Do you travel frequently, and if so, what are your plans for the dog?
  • Dogs can live a long time, can you make the commitment to care for this animal for all of his/her lifetime?
  • Are you willing to accept that your home and /or garden may suffer some damage during the adaptation phase?

Why Adopt from Pepi´s Refuge?

The dogs at Pepis see the same people everyday and get handled by the owners of Pepis. Because of this, the character of each dog is very well known which is fundamental when matching a dog to a prospective family.  In addition, a comprehensive questionnaire is provided so that this process is carried out with as much information as possible for the all parties concerned.
