It is important to go directly to the site in order to know the dogs that are compatible with your life, the volunteers will always be there to inform you in order to advise you!
In our area, the LPA refuges of Roubaix and Lille are the closest! Our Potato comes from Roubaix!
Within host family associations!
There are many associations that take in dogs directly from foster families, this is also the case when we take in dogs from associations such as Réflexe Adoption, Action Adoption, Beagle en Nord! The procedure is generally as follows: you fill out a form to meet the dog you would like to adopt, the host family gets in touch with you to set up a meeting!
