ABOUT DOG ADOPTION
At DOG ADOPTION. our primary focus is to provide owners a professional way to safely re-home dogs directly into new loving homes without using risky, interim emergency measures that have no guarantee of a positive outcome like pounds, private placements or shelters.
We also have a welfare arm that will rescue dogs from pounds if required.
DOG ADOPTION prides itself on ensuring all dogs are re-homed to the most appropriate homes possible. Our aim is to ensure we match the right dog with the right home.
Our group does not discriminate between breeds and will also re-home dogs with medical or health issues however, this will be disclosed to potential applicants unless the condition is unknown to us.
We understand dog welfare can be a very emotional and sensitive subject. Hence, we avoid using inflammatory language or behaviour that may incite radical reactions or alienate members of the community.
Facts About DOG ADOPTION:
- Rescue arm is foster care based — meaning we do not use kennels except in emergencies and only for a short time.
- DOG ADOPTION rescues dogs from pounds and also neglected dogs in the community before they get to the pound. We also offer a re-homing service.
- Foster care is reserved strictly for dogs with no homes or proven welfare cases. Unfortunately we cannot offer free short term foster care for dog owners who are e.g. going on holiday, renovating etc…
- Foster carers and applicants are screened via application forms, ID checks, reference checks and a house assessment.
- Dog Adoption is not a radical group and acknowledges some dogs will need to be euthanised (e.g. aggression, extreme heath issues) however, qualified specialists are always consulted before this decision is made.
- We seek advice from qualified specialists when necessary (e.g. behavioural problems, various vets).
- As a minimum all our dogs will be vaccinated, micro chipped and sterilised as part of the re-homing process. Sometimes
this will need to be done after adoption — DOG ADOPTION covers this cost at authorised vets (see adoption terms and conditions)
