How much is the adoption fee?

Our adoption fee is £150 and all dogs will be microchipped, fully vaccinated, neutered, treated for flea's and worms and come with 4 weeks free insurance for dogs under 8yrs. Dogs older than 8yrs will have health cover provided by the charity.


What is the adoption process?

If you a see a dog on our 'Dogs Needing a Home' page, please complete the adoption form.  Dogs are matched to homes, therefore, if you are a suitable match, we will invite you to come and meet your potential new friend and spend time with them. If after the meeting you would like to offer the dog a home, then we will organise a homecheck where we come and ensure you have a fully secured garden and to answer any questions you may have.  All of our dogs go to their new homes on a minimum 2 week foster period to ensure you are completely happy and to help with any issues you may have along the way.  If, after the two weeks you're happy, then you can make the adoption official.  It is at this point the adoption fee is paid, paperwork signed and ownership of the dog transferred.


Do you accept donations of bedding & towels for the dogs?

Yes we do.  We are always in need of bedding and towels for the dogs.  However, we unfortunately cannot accept donations of pillows or duvets due to kennel hygiene reasons.  The dogs do like to rip out the stuffing which then sticks to the kennel floor and walls.  Donations of bedding and towels can be dropped at our charity shop Tuesday to Saturday between 10am and 1pm.  


Do you require volunteers?

If you would like to volunteer to work with the dogs, you would need to direct your enquiry to Barnsley Animal Rescue as we rent our kennels from them.  If you would like to volunteer at our charity shop, then please send us an email or drop us a message on social media and we will get back to you.


Are the kennels open to view the dogs?

As our kennels are now located on private property our kennels are now closed to the public.  If you are interested in any of our dogs, please complete the adoption form on our 'Dogs Needing a Home' page and we will get back to you to arrange for you to come and meet the dog if you are a suitable match.
