If you're interested in adopting, this page will (hopefully) answer any questions you have about how it all works and what you'd need to do in order to adopt one (or two) of our dogs!
What are the requirements to adopt?
You'll need a secure garden with a 6ft fence, no small furries (that can't be separated) and agree to never let the dog off lead unless if a 6ft secure area. Pretty much anything else is workable!
How much is it to adopt?
There is a £250 adoption fee that helps towards their neuter, vaccinations, microchip, transport fees, other vet bills, kennel fees and any other costs.
Can I choose what dog I get?
To a point, yes. We match the dog to the home and take all aspects of your life into account - other dogs, kids, how active you are, how long the dog would be left, what area you live in etc. If you are interested in a particular dog, we'll have a look at that one first and see if they're a match but if not, there are many other dogs that could be! All we ask is that you have an open mind.
I have kids, is this ok?
Absolutely! We will only place dogs with you that have already lived with children and haven't shown any issues.
What happens if there's a problem with my dog after I've adopted them?
We are always available for advice and any help or support you need. We're here for you, as well as the dog. If for any reason you can't look after your adopted dog they MUST come back to us, just let us know and we'll move as quickly as possible to move the dog.
What if I'm not sure I can/want to adopt?
If you aren't sure if you can look after a dog (or another dog) you could try fostering first. Kind of like 'try before you buy'!
For more information about this, have a look at our fostering information page.
What do I need to do to adopt a dog from you?
If you're interested in adopting, please fill in the homecheck form under the contact tab. After we recieve this, a member of staff will give you a call for a quick chat then we can arrange your homecheck!
What happens with microchips?
You are responsible for changing the chip over after we give you all the information. You can put your name on the chip but we must stay on as a secondary contact.
