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.

Miles came to us recently and is now  on the lookout for his forever family to find him.

Miles would like a home as an only pet where he can have all the attention. He is an inquisitive, busy, happy little man who knows some commands.  He is a typical terrier and loves to sniff and investigate everything.  He isn't too keen on other dogs and will bark at them.


Miles isn't necessarily a typical lap dog, but he will make someone a fantastic little companion!

Other information:

 


Pixie is great with people and other dogs, although she needs a strong, confident owner to teach her some doggy manners as she can be a bit too full on for some dogs. But she has a lovely temperament, and as much as she loves to play, she also loves to climb on your lap for cuddles.


Pixie is used to having someone around most of the day, although can be left for a couple of hours. We think she would like to live with another confident dog as she lived with one previously in her foster home and with her last owner. But we do think Pixie would settle into the right home as an only dog, providing she receives the stimulation she needs to meet her energy levels.


We are looking for someone/a family who would be willing to put some time into her training and enforcing the right rules and boundaries so she can reach her potential and be the cracking dog we know she can be.


If you are interested in giving Pixie a home, please fill in the Adoption Form at the bottom of the page 

 

 

 

 

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.
