Thanks to my years of experience in animal welfare work in and with foreign countries, I am now able to offer this comprehensive advice and support for dog adoptions from abroad in a reliable manner.
I think as long as we eat tomatoes and cucumbers from Holland or Spain, as long as we buy cheese and wine from Italy and as long as we bring pineapples and bananas across the seas to Switzerland or Germany and torture animal transports across the borders, as long as we go we do not need to justify ourselves on the subject of animal welfare abroad.
There are incredible conditions abroad. Mass camps, killing stations, street killings, tortures, and more. There are an infinite number of dogs who experience daily suffering in countries where it is of no importance.
In addition, the reality is that many Swiss and German animal shelters keep taking in dogs from abroad. It is often the only way to get additional money into the coffers through the placement of the animals, so that costs and dogs that cannot be placed can continue to be taken care of.
