Remote Pet Adoption FAQs
Remote adoption of a pet is a concept that we have come up with to help our furry friends in need. Due to the fact that adoption rates are lower in developing countries and the fact that we rescue animals that are older, in need of medical attention and animals that are not too cute for adoption, unfortunately over 50% of our friends might not be adopted. However, they have needs.
So, we came up with remote adoption. You can choose to remote adopt any animal in our rescue and take care of him by covering his expenses. Your contribution will go to help this animal 100% with food, treats, medical needs etc.
For only $40 a month, you can pay the full expenses of an animal at our rescue. We send you monthly updates on your remote pet through our dynamic rescue update system. You will be able to see how your remote pet eats, plays, and has a safe environment thanks to your generosity and love.
The following links will take you to some of the most frequently asked questions about remote adopting a pet that you see on Rescue strays. If you can’t find the answer below, please contact us with any additional questions you have.
We all know we cannot adopt every animal that pulls on our heartstrings, but you can still make a profound difference on animals in need. Our Remote adopt an Animal program allows you to make a tax-deductible donation that will support one of our special foster Animal! All of our rescued Animals have veterinary expenses. Your contribution will assist in offsetting these expenditures and ensure that Rescue Strays can continue to save more animals going forward!
Not everyone has room in their home to adopt an animal of their own, but All has room in their hearts to care for animals in need. Remote adopting an animal is the perfect solution because every remote adopted animal that we have, opens a space in Rescue Strays shelter for us to get a new in need animal.
First, choose an animal from our Remote Adopt page then you can fill in the online form on the Remote Adoption page and select the ‘Gift’ option. Both you and the recipient will receive a Welcome Pack in about 1-2 weeks, and then your gift recipient will receive monthly updates about their adopted animal’s progress.
Our Donors name our animals but we have No Name Animals for adoption can be named by donors who choose names for unique reasons. Animals may be named after a beloved pet, in memory of a family member, after a business or celebration. Anyone can name an Animal for a donation of $5,000. Please contact us to find out more.

It’s fun to receive news of your animal and rescue strays want to keep you informed of your animal’s progress. We’ll send you regular updates with photos and news on how your remote adopted animal is progressing. Your updates will be sent to you through email.
Each month, you will receive an email update telling you how your adopted animal is doing. And best of all we’ll tell you when we have found them a new home and set them on the road to a happy future, thanks to you.
You will receive a welcome pack in the post, but after that, all communication will be online, which means that more of your money goes to the animals you love. Please note it may take a couple of weeks for you to receive your welcome pack in the post.
What’s really exciting is that you get the chance to help many animals rather than just one. We’ll also keep you updated every step of the way with monthly emails, so you’ll be one of the first to know when they’re rehomed.
Even though you’re not adopting, you still receive the joy of knowing you helped provide care for the animal(s) you choose to Remote adopt. Because of generous people like you, Rescue Strays continues to save more animals that may otherwise be euthanized, neglected, or abused. Upon your adoption, we email you updates we receive on the animals you have adopted so you can learn about your impact firsthand!
Your donation goes towards helping all the animals in our care, not just the one you have picked. Your generous donations will help fund everyday essentials, like beds, food, exercise and home.
Your monthly gift means we can ensure pets are vaccinated, microchipped, wormed, neutered and receive any other veterinary treatment they need. Plus, your donations will help fund training and behavior support for animals who haven’t had the best start to life and need extra help get them ready for their new homes.
That’s great news! It means another animal has found a loving new home. We will let you know by email, and tell you all about your new remoted adopted animal. We will automatically choose an animal for you, but if you would rather remote adopt a different animal you can do so via the link on your remote adoption success email.
Unfortunately, we cannot accept visitors as this would take a vital time away from helping animals. Also, some animals are not able to accept visitors as they are unwell or can become distressed.
Remote adoptions that are paid monthly will automatically roll over and you won’t need to contact us to continue making a difference. For those who purchased the remote adoption as a gift and made a single, one-time payment, you will receive an email and will have the opportunity to renew at that time.
Remote adoptions are made by a monthly donation, either through a credit card (Visa, Mastercard, Discover, American Express) or through bank draft directly from a checking account. You can enter your payment details when you set up your account on our Remote adopt page.
A certified vet will examine, vaccinated, and microchip the pet. The vet also will examine for the below illnesses of the pet.
After these controls vet issues a vaccination booklet and a health certificate for the pet. Then vaccination booklet and a health certificate must be approved by veterinary border control in Turkey. The veterinary border control will want to see the travel booking, the vet-issued documents mentioned above, and the animal itself. Then they issue a permit for the exact date of the pet’s travel.
All above-mentioned processes take at least 2 to 3 weeks and costs around $750
