Once I have received the adoption form I will establish if I can pay you a visit to at your premises to carry out a home check or video vetting. Once I am happy I will then proceed to let you visit the dog in its foster home. If the owners are happy with you/your family you should then contact me to pay the adoption fee via  bank transfer on the payment page which will go towards helping other pets in need. Once I have received the donation and it shows up on my system I will then give you the OK to go back and pick the dog up where you will be able to make arrangements to keep in touch.

Adopting a dog

  • We know moving can be stressful - and your new dog feels the same way! Give it time too, acclimate, your home, and family members before introducing it too strangers. Make sure children know how to approach the dog without overwhelming him. We highly recommenced all prospects watch our videos if you have kids an or other pets.
  • When you pick up your dog we will tell you when and what it was fed. Replicate that schedule for at least 2 days too,,, avoid gastric problems. If you wish to switch to a different brand, do so over a period of a week by adding one part new food to three parts of the old for several days; then switch to half new food, half old, and then 1 part old to three parts new.
