What are the formalities to import pets in Colombia? What about pet adoption procedures in the country? Did you bring your pet from your home country to your host country? If so, did everything turn out fine?

I have three Persians cats and an American Pitbull...of the cats there is a female w/ two males..they have adapted the process of trianing a two month old American Pitbull ..seems like it is going well although a puppy is more work. There is an expense to think of ..I spend about 300 cientos mil pesos per month on catfood,dogfood, and kitty litter. It is not cheap but it is worth it. All of my pets are from Colombia, two of my pets were rescued from horrible situations which were well worth the money to save them..pets add a great addition to my life in Colombia I wish I could do more.
