PODENCOS IN NEED SCOTLAND

Saving abandoned hunting dogs and bringing them to loving homes in the uk

The PINS Story

Podencos in Need Scotland was started in December 2015, we are a small group of volunteers, fundraisers and foster parents who work hard to help these dogs find forever homes in the UK. There are a lot of expenses involved in rescuing a dog from Spain, PINS aims to raise funds to cover costs such as release fees, vaccinations and passports in order to reduce the cost of the rescue and give these dogs a fighting chance.

Foster & Adoption Procedure

PINS will pay the dog’s release fee which covers:

  • All standard vaccinations
  • Neutering
  • Rabies vaccinations
  • Worm, flea & tick treatments
  • Microchipping
  • Passport

PINS will organise and pay for the dog’s travel from the shelter all the way to you.
PINS will arrange the proper paperwork needed for every dog, including registration with the TRACES scheme & DEFRA.

If you are fostering, we ask that you buy insurance 2 weeks prior to the dog’s arrival. PINS will reimburse this and any insurance excess.

If you are adopting you will also need to buy insurance. 
We ask for an adoption fee of:

  • Adult Dogs: £300
  • Puppies: £350

Fees for older dogs may be reduced at our discretion.


PINS provides life long rescue back up, behaviour advice and support.
