COVID19 -  SUMMER 2020

We, just like all dog rescue charities, have seen a huge increase in demand from people wanting to adopt.

We are a small charity and do not want to increase the supply of dogs to satisfy this demand, as we want to maintain our hands on matching service in finding the best homes. After all, dogs are for life not just for the duration of a pandemic.

We are not a volume rescue centre and neither are the shelters we help that are on the frontline who find abandoned street dogs or pregnant bitches, almost on a daily basis.

A tremendous amount of teamwork, driven by very compassionate volunteers, is the foundation of what we do and to simply try to rescue and rehome more dogs than we can cope with would be irresponsible.

So we hope that you understand why we can't find a dog for everyone that wants one.

So unless you have been given a direct link to this page, please do not complete our adoption form. As we regret that you would be joining the ranks of people that we can't find enough dogs for.

But please check back regularly as the situations change quickly.

Thank you for reading and for your patience and compassion in wanting to adopt a rescue dog.


 

Dogsnhomes is the elite dog rescue based on the Surrey Hampshire borders
To understand the process involved in adopting one of our dogs please read the following about our adoption process

The process of adopting a dog is as follows:-
1. We ask you to fill out this ADOPTION/HOME CHECK FORM  and press send at the end.
2. We will then contact you to finalise a Home Check. This will be either in person or if you are not local by Skype or Facetime.
3. After this point, we will have a better understanding of the type of dog most likely to suit you and if you have a dog in mind, whether the dog is suitable or not.
We like our dogs to go first into a foster home where we will assess them further and only after this stage we will invite you to come and see the dog if we think it will be a good match for you.
If you would kindly like and follow our Facebook page this will help many more puppies and dogs find their forever homes.
PLEASE ONLY APPLY IF YOU ARE WITHIN 1 HOURS DRIVE OF FLEET HAMPSHIRE

The reasons we like to adopt locally are:-
  • So we can give rescue back and advice about training, if needed
  • Local adopters support local businesses which in turn then donate unwanted items that get sent to the shelters
  • Adopters hopefully attend fundraising events
  • Increase the number of local adopters which is often done by word of mouth when they see our dogs out and about
  • So people join in our local group walks
  • As we often rehome litters and mum too, by them being local, they get to meet again
  • Finally, if you dog was to go missing, by being local, we will be much better placed to mobilise support and co-ordinate a search
