We have recently reviewed our adoption process as we have received feedback from prospective adopters stating that they were unclear about some of our adoption policies, and they didn't understand the processes we have in place for adopting a dog from our centre (especially in the current pandemic). Due to the way our website is laid out, it can be easy to miss information.

As a result of this feedback we have made it much easier for people to check if they meet our adoption criteria before they apply. We also walk you through the process of adopting a dog from us before you have to fill in an application form.

It's a 3 step process as follows:

Step 1: Read through and agree to our adoption requirements

Step 2: Read through and agree to our rehoming process

Step 3: Complete your adoption application form

If you live within 30miles of the centre you will need to complete the local rehoming agreement.

If you live further than 30 miles of the centre you will need to complete the long distance rehoming agreement.

If you have technical difficulties with the form, please first make sure you have completed all the required sections. If you still have problems, please drop us an email and we will do our best to assist you: [email protected]

 

You will be asked to prepare your garden photos once you have completed your adoption application so they are ready to send when we request them. Please DO NOT send them until you receive an email from us asking you to.

Please see the example below so you know what you will need to take photos of in your garden.

Garden Photos

You need to take photos showing:
-ALL sections of your boundary at full height
-under conifers/bushes
-behind/down the side of sheds/garages
-gates at full height showing padlocks
-where your boundary joins your house

Imagine we are laying your photos side by side. We need to be able to see your garden boundary from where it meets your house on one side, all the way around to the other side, like one long photo. Please take as many photos as needed to achieve this.

If we have missing sections of garden we will ask for more photos and this will delay your application.

If you fail to show us parts of your garden we will still pick it up during your virtual homecheck where you will video call with us and show us your garden. If there are problems at this stage you will lose your £100 reservation donation and the adoptive dog. So, it's really important to show us all of your garden now. Then we can help you get it ready for adoption.
