How to Adopt

If any of the dogs on our 'Needing a Home' page catch your eye, please complete our Dog Adoption Form and email it through to us.  Alternatively, send us an email or give us a call. We will then arrange to meet you so you can view the dog and get to know them.  We will perform a home check to ensure you have such things as a secure garden etc and once passed, the dog will go on a temporary foster term for approximately 2 weeks. If after this time - you wish to complete the adoption process then an adoption fee of £130 is payable.

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.
