Adoption Application:
If you are interested in meeting one of our dogs, please download, complete, and return our adoption application form. We will then be in touch to arrange a meet and greet and to discuss the suitability of your choice, or make a recommendation if you haven’t got a preference.

Meet and Greet:
All our dogs are in foster homes, so when we have received and approved your application, we will provide you with the address of the dog’s location, and meet you there so you can discuss the process with us and ask any questions.

Property Inspection:
After the meet and greet, if you wish to continue with the adoption, we will arrange a home visit to do a property inspection. This is to ensure you have adequate and secure fencing, and a safe environment for your new family member.

Adoption Agreement:
After your property inspection, we can finalise the adoption process, and we will meet you at the foster home to complete the paper work, and pick your new family member up. If you have another dog, we do require that we are present for the introduction of the two (or more) to ensure all dogs and people are safe. As part of the adoption agreement, we do offer a one week trial, so you have a chance to see whether you all fit together perfectly.

Follow Up:
We do love to receive updates and photos, and do require an update at the end of the first week. Please send us any photos as you enjoy your new lives together!

Going Forward:
Please feel free to contact us at any time for any advice about your new fur-baby.
We hope to see our dogs go to their forever homes, sometimes circumstance change. Please get in touch with us if you are no longer able to have your fur baby, and we will place them back in foster care until another loving home is found. We will always take our dogs back, so please get in touch.
