Have you just arrived in Luxembourg and wish to adopt a pet for yourself or for your family ? Would you like to do a good deed by adopting a cat or a dog in a shelter ? Just Arrived informs you about the best places where you can adopt !
The Dudelange shelter
Located in the Park Leh in Dudelange and open from Monday to Saturday from 05.30 pm to 07.00 pm, this shelter is exclusively held on a voluntary basis and almost entirely funded by private donations.
The motivated volunteer groomers’ team makes every effort to provide the best care to the animals that they welcome since 1989. There, you can mainly find dogs and cats, of all ages and of all breeds, available for immediate adoption. All dogs, male and female, have a microchip, are castrated and vaccinated. Cats are also castrated, tattooed and vaccinated, and they are tested negative regarding feline leukemia and AIDS. The adoption of a dog costs 250 euros, that of a cat 80 euros. Many animals are waiting to be adopted !
The SEPA – Society for the prevention of cruelty to animals in Esch-sur-Alzette
(Société Eschoise Protectrice des Animaux – Society for the prevention of cruelty to animals from Esch-sur-Alzette). Located at 121 Bourgrund Street, at Esch-sur-Alzette, this association exists since 1992 and makes every effort to protect animals from abuse and poor conditions of life. The team is composed of a worker, two administrative secretaries, 7 collaborators and several volunteers.
The S.E.P.A. offers an extremely well-equipped shelter for abandoned dogs and cats and provides at the same time all the necessary care until the arrival of a new owner. It is open every day from 02.00 to 05.00 pm, weekends and holidays included. The S.E.P.A. allows the adoption of animals, and gives as well the opportunity to go for a walk with them upon booking.
Abandoned animal SOS
Created in 1983, the Association Animal S.O.S., which is a non-profit organization, fosters out since 2005 abandoned cats from the Lexy Nilles Refuge, 58 Avenir Street, in Luxembourg-Limpertsberg. Exclusively devoted to the feline cause, the volunteers who work there make every effort to improve the quality of life of the collected animals and offer them a better home. With several successful adoptions in their assets, the members of the association frequently update the list of cats available for adoption in their shelter. A visit to the refuge is also possible by prior appointment.
