Adopt a Galgo

A loving and stable forever home is the biggest gift you can offer a galgo. Learn more about the adoption process, and meet galgos currently looking for homes.

About the Adoption Process

We bring 15-25 galgos to Canada between March and November each year. The vast majority of galgos are adopted before leaving Spain because 112 Carlota Galgos is a small hands-on group able to profile a specific galgo to fit in with your family. Our regular flights are from Malaga direct to Montreal. All of our dogs fly accompanied by a flight patron/patrons who donate their time and pay their own expenses to travel to Spain

The first step in the adoption process is to contact us for an application form, which will help us understand what galgo might be a good match for your family.

Once the completed application form is received, we will contact you by phone and answer any questions that you may have. We will then perform a home visit and bring one of our galgos for you to meet.

If all goes well, you will be matched with a galgo to join your family and arrangements will be made to transport your hound home. 

Our adoption area is primarily Ontario, Quebec and all the Maritime Provinces. We are also able to adopt to Alberta and Newfoundland, but there are additional expenses as there is an additional flight required to get the dogs home.

Adoption Fees

Our adoption cost is $650.00 which includes the adoption fee we pay to 112 Carlota Galgos, as well as the cost of the flight and customs inspection fees for the galgos to enter Canada.

All dogs come spayed or neutered, up to date on all vaccinations, dewormed, and have tested negative for Mediterranean diseases (blood work analysis provided). There is no cost for the travel crates as we fly these back and forth between Canada and Spain.

When you adopt from Carlota Galgos Rescue Canada, you become one of the family. We are a true community with the welfare of the galgos always being paramount. We provide 24/7 support to adoptant families, both here in Canada and also in Spain from Charlotte, Dioni and their vet team.

Available for Adoption

We attempt as best as we can to keep the list of dogs available for adoption current however there is always a possibility that some dogs will be coming available in a short time. If you have a certain request for a dog you have seen or a certain temperament or age you are interested in, please send us a quick email to see if there is possibly one coming up for adoption.
