'Changes to the entry of rescue dogs to the UK basically if the UK exit the EU with a deal or no deal the Euro tunnel will no longer be a designated Border Inspection Point for Dogs, Cats or Ferrets.. Some months ago the ferry companies stopped accepting transports with rescue dogs on and the only point of entry was the Tunnel. If this is correct the only means of transport will be by plane to the UK very few airlines fly dogs to the UK and the last one we flew over cost 600 pounds plus the cost of the crate paid by the adopter so will be beyond the affordability of most people .. I can not confirm if this is accurate information but
I am aware many agencies have been lobbying to stop the import of foreign rescues due to animals arriving sick and with incorrect paper work. If anyone has any information regarding these changes please let us kno. This is a statement copied from a post by the group below
Regular readers will know of the amazing work done by Viv and her team of volunteers working to bring about improvements to animal welfare in Murcia and Spain in general. Especially to their credit is the first International Conference on Animal Welfare - PAES - in 2017 and a second one in 2018. This is a weblink to their newsletter with details of the closure.
Just been advised of this by Ann Marie Payne of Ann's Canine Care. Email her on this link if you want a copy of the form in pdf.
CHANGE OF LAW. PLEASE READ
From 13th May 2019 the procedure to change ownership of a dog that is registered on raia ( Andalusia) has changed. Also if you want to register a dog on raia from another database.
Now you must obtain one of these forms and have the previous owner fill it out and then have your vet present it to raia, along with proof of identity of the owner. Your local vet will have access to one of these forms.
Also if you rescue a dog from the street without a chip you must register it at the local town hall. This will not effect your right to keep the dog.
These are new laws so please, don't expect Ann to be able to answer any questions. The best person to ask is your local vet.
Leaving your dog's toys and water bowls outside overnight can lead to your pooch being exposed to the potentially fatal lungworm parasite. Watch here to see why it's so important to always bring your dog's toys inside. Lungworm can be prevented, speak to your vet about treatments available.
