Statement of principal on the import of rescue dogs from abroad

ESCCAP UK & Ireland does not support importation where pets can be rehomed in the country of origin.  Where importation is occurring, ESCCAP UK & Ireland works with charities to improve screening prior to importation and to raise awareness of associated issues.  ESCCAP UK & Ireland supports charities in improving animal welfare to reduce the need for animal relocation.
