What happens now you've applied to foster or adopt...

A member of staff will give you a call in the next few working days. All of our staff are unpaid volunteers and help out in their spare time so please be patient whilst waiting for your initial phone call, you haven't been forgotten about, our staff are just very busy and will get to you as soon as they can. During this phone call, the staff member will go through your form with you and highlight any problems that need solving before we send out someone to do your homecheck. For example, if you don't currently have a 6ft fence, this will be discussed and you'll be given advice on how to get it up to the required height of 6ft before we can homecheck you. 

If there is a problem with your application...

If there are any issues with your application, we can not send anyone out to do your homecheck until they are resolved.

We will work with you to fix any problems and help as much as we can. Once the issues are fixed...

If you refuse or are unable to fix issues, your application process will stop here.

If there are no obvious issues with your application...

We will post on our page and our forum and ask for a volunteer to come and do your homecheck. Again, this can take time to arrange as everyone helps in their free time and are volunteers so please be patient. Once someone has agreed to come and do your homecheck they will contact you to arrange a date and time suitable for you both for them to carry out the homecheck...

When the volunteer comes to your home they will bring one of their own dogs with them. They will have a look at your garden and make sure the fence is 6ft and is not broken at all, they will also take pictures of the fence. The volunteer will have a form that they will fill in and you'll need to answer some questions about your home and lifestyle so we have enough information to match you with a dog. In preparation for your homecheck, please have proof of your identity and address ready to show the volunteer. Also, if you live in rented accommodation we will need to see written permission from your landlord that you are allowed to have a dog. Once the homecheck is complete, the volunteer will send us the paperwork. This itself can take a few days so again, patience is key!

Once we receive your homecheck form from our volunteer. We will read through all the information that has been provided and if there are any issues...

If everything is fine and no problems are found, you will pass your homecheck and we will use the information provided to match you up to dogs in our care or on our waiting list that we believe will fit perfectly into your home. Once you accept an offer of a dog, we will post on our page and forum to arrange the transport run to get your new family member home!
