Friends forever stray together

BFF Strays is a non-profit organisation dedicated to helping Spanish dogs find new homes in Sweden. The use of positive reinforcement and ethical methods for dog training is a requirement to adopt. This is what distinguishes us from other organisations that work with foreign dogs; positive reinforcement permeates everything that we do. For us it is a given to work with positive reinforcement and ethical methods based on modern research. In effect, everyone involved in BFF Strays (the board, dog trainers, foster homes, forever homes) are required to use reward-based training, as well as to be kind and loving to everyone involved in the organisation.

BFF Strays works on a small scale, in order to ensure that every dog comes to a loving home that is prepared to take care of an adopted dog, and that everyone who adopts gets all the support and guidance that may be needed. Our goal is that every dog that is adopted via us comes to its ”forever home”, meaning that we have matched the dog and the family so well that there is no need for relocations in Sweden.

The founders of BFF Strays and its board are a group of people who are passionate about dog adoptions and have extensive experience of dogs and animal rights. We have practical experience of working with adopted dogs, and some of us are certified dog trainers. And many of us have our very own, fantastic Spanish strays!
