Homing Procedure

Our dogs have already been abandoned once so we make every effort to make sure that your home meets the dog’s need.

Procedure for rehoming a rescue dog:

If you see a dog you are seriously interested in, ring 07931 220 094 for an informal chat. This establishes whether the dog is appropriate for you and avoids disappointment and wasted time for both parties. If the dog is available and you appear suited, then be prepared to visit on
at least two occasions before the dog being allowed with you for a trial home visit. If after a couple of weeks, maybe longer, all goes well and there are no unsolvable issues, then the dog will be signed over to you. Advice is givenand ongoing suppport is available. All rescue dogs are spayed (if old enough), vaccinated, flea’d, wormed and microchipped.

Conditions:

  • We cannot home dogs if you are out at work full time unless you can take the dog with you, or have provision for regular breaks for the dog.
  • Gardens must be secure. Many dogs can jump 1.5 metres without even trying!
  • Any children in the home must be old enough to understand some basic “do’s” and “don’ts”.
  • You must have the time and energy to exercise your dog between one and three hours every day, depending on the dog type, in an environment that stimulates the dog, e.g. park or canal towpath.

We work hard to match our dogs with the best possible new owners. Our current rate of return is 3% and even then, they are eventually rehomed.
