Dog Adoption Questionnaire

Before completing this form, please ask yourself honestly if you are in a position to give a rescue dog a space in your life.

Rescue dogs often come with baggage and will need some time and patience to settle in and begin to trust again.

Please remember that many rescue dogs will have little or no history with them and their past lives may have been abusive or neglectful.

Are you prepared for the change to your daily routine and lifestyle?

Will you continue the training that our staff have begun and stick to it?

Dog Adoption Questionnaire

IMPORTANT: This is a pre-adoption enquiry questionnaire and does not guarantee you an adoption nor a reservation of the animal you are interested in. It should be completed by the main carer, who must be over 18 years old. YOU MUST upload photos or a video of your garden to complete this application. If you live in a rented property, please only complete this form if you are able to attach written permission from your landlord, that you are allowed a pet in the property.

Please do not write 'dog' in this section and only apply for dogs that are shown on the website. We do not operate a waiting list.
