Requirements for the adoption process:
If you are a visitor to Karpathos, and decide to adopt a stray pet, first check with your airline/travel operator for information on traveling with your new dog or cat and what they need you to do.
Veterinary Medical Care of Rescues
Animal Welfare Karpathos treats all diagnosed diseases of the animals rescued. If they are of appropriate age they are spayed/neutered before they are placed for adoption. If these medical acts have not already been performed by Animal Welfare Karpathos (e.g if a rescue was just found), prior to your departure from the island, - your pet will need to be vaccinated against rabies, micro-chipped, given medications against fleas and endoparasites (worms), and if at a proper age be neutered/spayed. (S)he will be given a pet passport and all relevant documents needed for the country of adoption.
