About the adoption process

Once you have chosen your dog(s) a home check will be carried out by a volunteer in your area. Following a successful home check their journey can then be arranged.

The dogs will have all their vaccinations up to date before they can have their passport. They will be treated with flea and worming medication. Puppies must be at least 12 weeks of age before the rabies vaccine can be administered and by law all dogs and puppies must wait 21 days after the vaccination, before they can travel. Therefore puppies can only leave after the age of four months. They will also be micro chipped before travel. 

The dogs will travel to you by land, the transportation is with a DEFRA registered Pet transporter.
