We provide as much care as we can for the strays of Mauritius, however the demand for homes is ever increasing.

All of our strays are fully vaccinated, health checked and cleared for transportation to the UK. We ensure every stray is handled with the upmost care when going through the transportation process, which we manage from our care facility in Mauritius right to your home in the UK. We handle all required documentation and health checks to prevent any hiccups along the way.

Can you help?

If you are looking to adopt, why not consider a Mauritian stray? We have many strays ready and waiting to find a new home and a loving owner, could you be one of them?

Adoption Important Information

We do not charge an adoption fee, however we do ask for a donation towards the travel costs of getting the dogs to the UK.
These costs include the following;

  • Preparation of dog for travel (this includes vaccinations, rabies injection, sterilisation and microchip) and Health Certificate issued by Mauritian State Vet.
  • Airline approved crate for travel.
  • Flight ticket from Mauritius to Paris with flight buddy.
  • Onward travel from Paris to Calais with either our driver and DEFRA approved vehicle or PET Taxi.
  • Travel after customs checks from Calais to the UK via the Channel Tunnel to Folkestone.
  • Onward travel to the adopters address or arranged meeting place in the UK.

The donation we ask towards this is £375.00

  • Pre adoption Questionaire and home check are required.
  • On acceptance of adoption a £100 non refundable deposit is required.

You are the official owner of your dog before they leave Mauritius and your name will be on all paperwork unless the dog has been in foster care in the UK previously.

Ever considered Fostering?

Can't commit to adopting a stray full-time? Ever considered fostering?

Before strays are placed in to their new homes in the UK, they are often partnered with foster carers or families to ease their transition in to home life and sometimes assist with care whilst adoptive families are found. Fosterers play a vital part in the re-homing process and are in constant demand.

We are currently in need of caring foster families throughout the UK. If you could provide a foster home for any of our strays, please contact us to place your name on our foster register.

Thank you!

MAX is our very special 14 month old boy! He is known by many of our supporters of the charity.

When he arrived from Mauritius he had a badly deformed leg due to an accident with a car. He had an operation with a custom made implant at Fitzpatrick Referrals performed by Noel to correct this and hydrotherapy paid for and fundraised for by the charity and his foster family. He now has a straight leg with full use but however due to the operation his leg is very slightly shorter and he has a slight limp so he has a boot for walking and exercise.

He is a friendly, loving and energetic young boy who loves lots of attention. He is very clever, loves play and stimulation and will need plenty of exercise. He likes the company of other dogs and could live with another friendly dog/dogs. His foster family did have a cat but does have a tendency to chase if the cat runs. He is house trained and able to be left alone for periods of time whilst at work or out in the evenings. He is in a foster family with children but he is very playful and energetic so no very young children.

He is neutered, fully vaccinated and microchipped. He is currently in foster care in London but I am looking for an adopting family in the Midlands ideally. Adoption Questionaire and application and home check required.

Contact us for more information.
