Things you should know                 before applying for a rescue dog

   

 

*We always like to meet the whole family before an adoption is completed.
    *We always carry out a home check
    *We treat each application on its own merits but generally we ask you to carefully read our assessment of each dog. It is important that owners & dogs are a good match.
    *Some of the dogs that come into care are very shy/nervous and may take many months to trust their new family. Some may have never lived in a home before. Are you prepared to be patient & understanding no matter how long it takes, if you take on a dog like this?
    *We will not home very young dogs with very elderly or frail owners, again however we may consider an older dog for this situation if appropriate.
    *All dogs over the age of 6 months will be neutered before they are re-homed. Puppies re-homed before the age of 6 months are the responsibility of their new owners & must be spayed/castrated by the age of 6 months. Owners must have their vet sign a neutering form when this has been done, the form must be returned to the charity on completion.
    *We highly recommend that puppies & young dogs attend training classes once settled into their new home. The socialization they receive is vital in their development. Dogs of all ages benefit from training, they are never happier than when they are putting their clever brains to good use.
    *All dogs & puppies begin their vaccinations whilst in our care. If they are re-homed before the primary course is complete (two injections, two weeks apart) new owners are able to take the dog back to our vet & complete the course at no further cost to themselves. If you wish to complete the course at your own vets, you must pay your own vet accordingly.
    *All future veterinary treatment is the new owner’s responsibility, this includes annual vaccination boosters, neutering in the case of puppies, flea & worm treatments, dentals & treatment in the case of illness or injury.
    *You will be asked to sign a contract when adopting from us. To read a copy of this, please read our "adoption procedures" page.
    *If you are a UK tax payer you will be asked to complete a gift aid declaration. As we are a registered charity this means that we can claim back the tax you have already paid on your donation & for every we £1 you donate we will receive an additional 25p.
    *Please note that we always look for the right home for each of out animals, if we refuse your application for one of our rescues, it is because we believe that on this occasion things are not quite right, so please do not be offended but our rescues are our priority.
