The Adoption Process

Firstly have a look at our Dogs Needing Homes page. When you see one that you think is right for you send a e-mail to giving details of the kind of home you can offer and the kind of dog you are looking for. Please note we no longer accept adoption interest via telephone, only by email.

We will then arrange a home visit to assess if the dog is suitable to your home environment, we use a volunteer group and this can take a few days as we are relying on people volunteering to help so please do be patient. Once the home visit is completed we will e-mail you with the results, sometimes we will suggest another dog if we feel they would suit your environment better.  Once you have been and met the dogs and the homecheck has been done we cannot hang onto dogs for weeks as sadly we have a never ending list of dogs waiting to come in.  Sadly we cannot reserve a dog for someone who cannot adopt immediately or haven’t had a home visit.

Some dogs namely the super pretty ones will get a lot of enquiries, Gill is dealing with phone and e-mail enquiries on her own so sometimes there maybe a delay to your enquiries. Please be patient as she will reply, usually in the early hours of the morning when the phone is not ringing !!
