Dogs Needing Homes

 

The dogs in our care are will be housed in the kennels and also in foster homes.  

 

Our adoption fee is currently £150.  All dogs will be neutered, microchipped, flead and wormed before adoption and this is all included in the adoption fee. They will also come with 4 weeks free insurance*.  Full support is given after adoption, so don't be afraid to call us about anything at anytime.

If you are interested in any of our dogs please complete the Adoption Form at the bottom of this page to apply.

 

*The free insurance is only valid for dogs 8yrs or under. Dogs over 8yrs will have 4 weeks of health cover provided by the charity. 

 

Important Note: Our kennels are CLOSED to the public.  As we are located within the grounds of a private property, as well as restrictions due to Covid, visiting dogs is strictly by appointment only.

Meet A.J. our new boy, A.J. was taken to be PTS, but a good friend of mine works at the vets and she contacted me the owner was very relieved not to have to do it and signed AJ over to us.
A.J. is 9yrs old and has lived with other dogs previously but due to jealousy over the new arrival in the home we would prefer AJ to be an only dog, he hasnt lived with children so a home with no children. AJ travelled lovely in the car to say his owner doesn't drive he settled in a cage and not peep out of him. He was very wary of me but by the time I left him at the kennels he was my new best friend.
AJ will be assessed by us but if you are interested in him and feel you could meet his needs please fill in the form on our website and submit it to us.

Other information:

 

Tommy was saved from being put to sleep by his owner who could no longer handle him.  He is an 18mth old beautiful boy who is very loving and friendly.  We are still assessing him with regards to dogs but initially he is not reactive, however, he is very interested.  This is probably down the the fact he is currently entire.  Therefore, initially we are looking for a home with no other dogs.  He has lived with 2 cats that he would chase if he was bored so no cats.  We will also only rehome him to an adult only home due to both his nervousness and also his excitablility. 

 

Tommy is very strong and a lively boy so not for a couch potato. He is willing to please and loves treats so with time and patience he will be a cracking boy so much potential. He will need plenty of exercise and stimulation but the end result will be a stunning boy.
He has started his vaccinations and will be castrated in the near future. If your are interested in Tommy please fill in the form on our website and submit it to us.

Rodney

Labrador x Husky
(1yr old) 

 

Questions about Rodney

 

Dogs size: Large

Can be homed with other dogs: Still to be assessed but a dog free home would be ideal.
Can be homed with cats: No
Can be homed with children: Yes, children over 12yrs.
House Trained: Yes but need training after spending time in kennels.
Any behaviour problems: Age / breed related - see below.
Any medical problems: No
Period of time can be left alone: No more than a couple of hours
Type of home: Quieter home with someone around most of the day
Exercise requirements: around 1hr per day.

 

Other information:

 

Rodney has just arrived after his owner could no longer cope with him.  Rodney has only just turned 1yr old and is a typical teenager.  He is strong on the lead, which being part husky, means he does enjoy pulling.  He does listen though, so with a handful of treats and lots of consistency, training him to walk to heal can be done. 

 

He is a little under socialised with new people and can be wary of strangers coming to the home.  This is a typical issue with lockdown pups as they simply have not had the normal exposure.    He will also jump up and mouth and enjoys chewing.  All of his behaviour issues are age or breed related and can easily be managed with the correct training methods which we will advise on.

 

For Rodney we are looking for a quieter home with older children.  Although Rodney has lived with young children, we will not be placing him in a home with children under 12yrs due to the fact he gets too aroused by a busy household and this does not suit him.  

He has also not lived with other dogs and we feel a pet free home would be best for him. 

 

Rodney would need a home with someone around most of the day as he does require plenty of both physical but also mental stimulation which is just as important.  Rodney is a cross of two working breeds and we would be looking for a home with someone who is experienced in owning dogs and confident in handling to continue working on his issues.  Rodney is not a dog that will be happy with just an hours walk a day.  He will need someone who can give him plenty of mental stimulation also. 

 

If you are interested in Rodney, please complete the adoption form below.  Please note, due to the overwhelming interest we are receiving at the moment, we unfortunately can only respond to those people who we match him with.

DOG ADOPTION FORM

 

Due to the high demand of dogs at the moment, we are currently receiving a large number of applications for each dog.  We try to reply to every application, however, the rescue is run soleby by volunteers, around work and family commitments.  We try to reply to applications once the dog has been assessed.  This may take a couple of weeks.  Due to the high number of enquiries, we are unable to respond to applications where forms are not submitted correctly.  (Please see bullet points below).

 

The adoption form will give us all the information we need to ensure you are a perfect match for the dog you are applying for.  We have no blanket rules for rehoming.  We will consider all homes for dogs and will match dogs up to a home we feel will suit them best.  Not all dogs are suitable for all home types and this is why we specifically ask for ages of adults and children in the household, as well as how much exercise and time you can realistically dedicate to a dog each day.   Please answer the questions carefully and give as much detail as you can.  The more details and information we receive, the better.

 

Please think carefully about whether you can commit the time to a dog and can afford the relevant costs that come with dog ownership (food, veterinary treatment, grooming, regular flea / worming treatment etc), as well as speaking to all members of your household about this decision before completing the form. Please only complete the form if you are serious about offering a dog a home. 

 

Please read EACH of the below points BEFORE applying, to ensure your form is submitted correctly. 

 

Due to the large amount of applications we are receiving for each dog, we will not be able to consider applications where the below points have not been adheared to.

 

  • Please read and answer the questions carefully.  Do not use autofill when completing the form as this will only partially complete your address.  We specifically need your full address and names and ages of ALL members of the household to be able to consider your application.
  • Please only complete the form if you live within 30 miles of our kennels in Sheffield.  We are unable to rehome more than 30 miles away due to logistical reasons.  
  • Unless we have specifically requested your details, please only complete the form for a specific dog we have in our care.  Any forms for 'any dog' or a dog we do not have available, will be not be responded to.  We unfortuantely cannot keep these forms on file due to GDPR regulations.
  •  Please give as much information as you can when completing the form. 

 

Dogs who are 'Reserved' on their profile above, have already been matched with homes and are currently on their temporary foster basis pending adoption.  You can still apply for reserved dogs, however, your details will be kept on a waitlist and will be deleted once the dog has been rehomed. We are unable to reply to applicants of 'reserved' dogs.  If we have 'Closed' applications for a dog, please do not complete a form.  This will mean we have been inundated with offers of homes and will have numerous homes on a waitlist for that dog.  Any additional forms received for dogs that have been 'closed' will be deleted to comply with GDPR rules.  

 

Please ensure you read and agree to our terms and conditions of adoption in the below attachment before applying.
