The ALStrays Re-homing and Transport project is run by Sandra and Chris Marshall with the aim of helping to re-home owned, abandoned and stray cats, to transport pets and re-homed animals, and to provide other help to animals in need.
We are not ourselves a rescue organisation and only work with registered charities in Spain and Germany. We have no facility to ‘take in’ abandoned animals.
The project to re-home and transport ‘rescue animals’ is essentially non profit making. Any money received from the re-homing Charities via adoption fees is used to help cover the costs of vet bills, fostering and transport.
The transport of pets is run on a commercial basis through our UK based VAT Partnership M2 Associates.
ALStrays is simply a project name run by M2Associates. We invoice for the transport of Pets through M2 Associates as these are liable for VAT, and we invoice VAT exempt rescues through ALStrays purely to help differentiate on an administrative level.
Our vans are DEFRA Certified and we hold a Type 2 Transporter License and a Junta de Andalucia Certificate so we comply with both DEFRA and Spanish requirements for the transport of cats and dogs under both the Pets Scheme and TRACES.
