Taking in is good! 
Living together with an animal…  is great!
It feels good to share our lives with a four-legged friend in our family. So much love and sweetness! But it is also a big responsibility.
Having a pet is for a lifetime.  Adopting an animal must be a responsible decision, which affects all members of the family (animals and humans) and most importantly the adopted animal itself.
Before adopting a cat or a dog, you have to exercise introspection before committing yourself to this long-term responsibility. 
The kitties and doggies living at the shelter get a chance for a new life with adoption.
Please give these animals a chance, but be careful with your choice, because living together problem free with the adopted animal is only possible after you have studied the reasonable needs and expectations of the situation.

We suggest that you calculate and decide about adopting an animal based on the below points:

- It’s important to familiarize yourself with the adoptable animals living on the Rex Animal Island.
- Check out our brochure about our cats and dogs.
- Write a list about the qualities the adopted animal needs to have.
- Take into consideration that you must fulfill all of the needs of the animal! You must feed it , you must provide fresh drinking water all the time, it must receive medical care – at least once a year, when getting the rabies vaccination – you have to provide a place where it can rest and is suitable for its size. You have to clean and care for its fur, also you must have time to train but also play with it. Also the animal must have the opportunity to go outside multiple times a day. And last but not least it needs constant love from the new owner.
- If you are sure that you can keep to the rules of the responsible pet owning, please visit us and choose a cat or dog with the help of our carers.
- After your decision, our colleagues will ask a few questions regarding the surroundings, location and capabilities which you can guarantee for our patron. Once we find your answers about accommodation acceptable, you can take home your new family member, after signing an adoption contract.

With adoption you can help not only one single animal. By paying the adoption fee and hopefully a donation too you can support our continued work.
It gives us a chance to take in new animals on the Rex Animal Island and it helps us to maintain the highest level of animal keeping and even improve the maintenance of our environment.
With one adoption you will support two animals at once!
