Here at Lora's Luck, we offer a BESPOKE one to one foster service as we say on our Home Page.
If you would like to help us get any of our dogs on our site to our foster, then the following applies:email us or use our live chat function, quoting the name and number of the dog.
Then we contact the rescue to check her status.
They and we fundraise the £400 fee* (bus fare, VAT and other UK costs) needed to get her on the Happy Bus to the UK and into our care. You are welcome to help with this but what we would need from you is a sponsor, like a Super Auntie or Uncle!
The '*fee' is £400. It is not an 'adoption fee’. it is their 'bus fare’ and legalities we need to ensure are in place while your dog is one the bus.
When you take on a rescue dog
you do not 'own’ them
you haven’t 'bought’ them like you have a pedigree dog
and they are subject to RBU and the rescue’s contract, terms and conditions by law and mutual consent.
Brexit has caused this unavoidable price increase but we are still one of the lowest priced rescues out there.
This ‘fee’ therefore ONLY pays:
travel door to door from the Romanian foster or rescue to the door of the UK foster/adopter
VAT (a post Brexit charge)of £20 on the government set 'value’ of a stray dog of £100)
excise duty and customs agent commission (a post Brexit charge) of £70
UK legal costs (£25)
This does not cover any other vital expenses such as:
UK and Romanian internal travel costs done by our team,
UK and Romanian foster costs,
vet general health checks,
treatments (such as flea worm and tick medicine),
food, treats, blankets and toys
collars, leads, harnesses, bowls and beds,
neuters and aftercare consultations,
or should they fall ill.
Adopters are welcome to sponsor their dogs at a base cost of £50 while still in Romania or Serbia (includes food and board but not vaccines or any other vet treatment) a month before they come, but few do, and we’d never make that a condition of adopting**
If adopters would like to engage one of our UK fosters being first time adopters and wanting to meet, train and develop a bond with the dog with the foster’s and the rescue’s help and support then this service does cost money.
Our UK Fosters are with the dogs 24/7 and the dogs ate part of the family in their homes with no kennels no cages and no chains.

The puppy ideally would be with us no more than one month but it can take up to three months to find her her forever home!
The reference would be [PUPPY NAME AND NUMBER] SUPER AUNTIE/UNCLE SPONSOR. The dogs come with NOTHING, not even a toy due to transport regs, so this covers: vet check in the UKID tag (legal requirement)collar (legal requirement)chip transfer fee to the UK (legal requirement)de-flea and wormer (legal requirement)slip lead (legal requirement)ordinary lead groomer visit (basic claws and coat) If you'd like to buy her: a toy, blanket, dog shampoo and other 'doggy' items (see our Amazon wish list http://amzn.eu/5UVLuyJ for more info!) bed, treats or special diet as we transition her from the low quality shelter to food to our top quality raw food (as food is not covered in the basic £70 a month UK foster charge) We have a handy donation page for that too with all these options on!
If you adopt your sponsor girl, the TYPICAL QUESTIONS WE/THE HOUSECHECKER WILL ASK YOU:
Are there kids and if so what age?
How long might the dog be left when at work etc?
How high is the fencing/gate round your garden/yard?
Were you looking for a small or medium dog (we do focus on some large)?
Have you ever had a dog before? Are there any other pet(s) in your home?
IF YOU RENT, do you have proof your landlord allows dogs?
