Hey friends! I am a university student in Dubai and own 2 dogs by the names of Julio & Escobar. As you can see they’re both unbelievably handsome and, dare I say it, the most lovable doggos ever!
They have been living with me for over a year and a half now and unfortunately during the past few months I have run into some financial difficulties which has forced me to look into moving to more affordable accommodation in the UAE, which more often than not, are pet-free spaces.
Thankfully however, my family in the UK has agreed to foster and look after my dogs until I am back on feet and capable of bearing the responsibility of raising fur babies once more. These dogs mean the world to me and I would do anything to make sure they receive the love and care they deserve, even if it means having to spend the next year or so without them (as I am expected to graduate university in 9 months’ time and will move to the UK myself after I have graduated).
That being said.. we 3 will need a bit of help to make this happen.
What Julio, Escobar & I will need:
After doing a bit of research on the requirements needed in order to bring pets into the UK, my family and I have decided to use a Pet Relocation company in order to aid in the nerve-wrecking process of flying overseas with pets. Doing this however, would unfortunately cost an extortionate amount of funds.
The quotation sent to me by a local Pet Relocation company stated that I will need approximately $3200, with the breakdown as follows:
- Pet Fare & Cargo Service Fee (for both dogs) - $1225
- “Core” Relocation Fee - $1200
- “Country Specific” Relocation Fee, Travel boxes & Pre-flight veterinary services - $750
My personal savings will allow me to cover my own flight expenses (for travelling with the dogs) but I will need some help in order to cover their relocation expenses, hence why I am reaching out to the community through GoGetFunding.
If you cannot provide monetary support, that is completely fine and I understand, but my only other request would be to please share this page on social media in order to help me connect to other potential supporter’s 🐾 ♡.
Thanks a bunch & stay safe friends!
