Rehoming a dog from us requires that you are interviewed by one of our staff to establish whether your chosen dog suits you, your lifestyle and home. If it does not then we are happy to suggest alternative dogs who would be.
The basic rehoming process for dogs is:
- You make an initial choice either online or when you visit us
- If you do not own your own home, we will need to see written consent from your landlord or your tenancy agreement if pet ownership is noted within it
- We will ask for a form of identification which shows your current address
- We will tell you more about your dog and whether we think it is a suitable choice
- You will be introduced to your dog and you can take it for a walk
- If they are a suitable match then you’ll need to visit and walk the dog on at least three further occasions. At some point, the other members of your home will also need to meet the dog.
- You’ll then be able to take your pet home for the day if you wish
- We’ll arrange a home visit with you. The purpose of this is to check that the environment (mostly your home and garden) is suitable for the dog and it’s personality
- Trial rehoming. This is where you’ll take the dog on trial, usually for several weeks, so that you both get to know each other in the home environment
- At the end of the trial you can either adopt or return your choice to us
- We will ask you to complete an application form so we can know more about your circumstances
How much does it cost?
Our rehoming fee is £125 for dogs. The cost covers micro-chipping, vaccinations, neutering, flea and worming treatment and any other veterinary care whilst the dog has been in our centre.
You can complete an application form when you visit the centre or call us direct for more information. Click here to see how you can get in touch with us.
It’s also vital that everyone who will be living with your dog meets the animal before rehoming.
