who we are
Adopt don’t shop EU is a project focused in rehoming neglected animals across European countries.
By helping local shelters and rescue organisations we gather different animal welfare organisations in one website. Dogs, cats and other animals in need of a forever home require even more visibility today: the pet industry is focused on profit, not on protectionism. Same story for breeders, fashionable breeds, excessive ethology and working methods. Hundreds of thousands of unwanted dogs on the streets follow. The most affected areas are the countries across Mediterranean Sea (Cyprus, Spain, Greece, Centre and South of Italy) and East Europe (Romania, Bulgaria) above all.
We are people from different countries, someone helps when he can in the local kennel or travels as international volunteers or flight/ship volunteers, some others run a shelter privately.
We don’t make it for profit. All the incomes from adoptions are used for other animals. All the incomes coming from merchandise sold online, from events fundraisings or crowfundings are used to pay all the activities related, vets, transports and food.
If your Shelter/Organisation needs visibility on Adopt don’t shop EU website and global network (Facebook, Twitter), feel free to contact us togheter with relevant informations about dogs, cats and other animals. You can also sell your merchandise via Adopt don’t shop EU merch page.
Please note and undestand that every adoption is permitted under European animal’s Transportation system only (TRACES).
Please donate using PayPal button at the bottom of this page. Every 31/12 we usually post received donations.
