Rescued does not mean damaged
It means it has been let down by humans
You can't change a dog past
but you can rewrite it's future
Second hand pets
make first class animals
I adopted my
best friend
I got to grow old
because I was adopted

Transporting your pet

We cooperate with an official licensed transport company from Lithuania. Once the animals are ready to travel, they get prepped for the long journey to the Netherlands. The company has specially designated vehicles, equipped with air conditioning, clean cages and above all, very friendly chauffeurs. For the well being of the animals during this long journey, many stops take place, since the pets need to be fed, walked and in general, avoid as much as possible the stress of the journey. That is the reason why the transporter takes it slow and needs about three days to reach the Dutch borders. Please bare in mind that the duration of the journey may vary since many unpredictable factors can affect it (weather conditions, border clearance, etc). The whole operation is oriented around the well-being of the animals during the voyage.

Once the vehicle crosses the borders of the Netherlands, a suitable, drop off point is decided by all the parties involved (Cosmopolitan Pets, future parents).

Collecting your pet

Once the transporter reaches the designated drop off point, you can finally get united with your fury friend! The chauffeur takes the pets out of their cages one by one, in order to give the pets and the parents some time to get acquainted with each other. These first unique moments are captured on video and are later processed and uploaded on YouTube, for you to enjoy.
