The purpose of this website
is to help find new homes for animals that were rescued from
the street or are currently in an animal shelter and for those that are in need of a new home for
other - urgent - reasons. This website is not for puppies
that were born at home (due to owners failing to neuter
Moscow's private and semi-private
dog shelters are overflowing with unwanted dogs and puppies
and normally cannot accept additional animals. Therefore,
if you come across a dog or cat that is in need of help, the
best thing you can do is take it home with you, have it checked
out by a vet, de-flee and de-worm it. Quarantine the dog or
puppy for at least 10 - 14 days to make sure it does not have
any infections and then try to find a new home for it. However,
before doing this, please think about whether you are ready
to feed, take care of, train and pay for any veterinary treatment
the animal may require before you find a new home for it.
We cannot pick up any animals from you or from the street
- there simply isn't anywhere to take them, and we do not own or run any shelters in Moscow!
If you have rescued a dog
or puppy from the street and are looking for a new home for
it, you are very welcome to post information about the animal
on this website. To do so, please send the text along with
your contact details, languages spoken, and several good-quality .jpg
photos to email@example.com.
Please note that we do not
accept postings from breeders and/or for animals that are
for sale. While it is customary in Russia to give the person
you adopt an animal from a small amount of money and animal
shelters in Moscow will certainly appreciate it if you make
a financial contribution when adopting a pet from them, you
are kindly asked to notify us immediately if you are asked
to pay for any animal that is mentioned on this website. Such
posts will be removed immediately.
If you are thinking about
adopting an animal here in Moscow, please carefully consider
the responsibility you are taking on. An animal is not a toy
that can be donated to someone else when you leave Russia.
Please read the section called Caring for Animals on our Advice page for additional thoughts.
