COVID19 - 2021

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 to find the best homes. After all, dogs are for life, not just the duration of a pandemic.

We are not a 'volume' rescue centre and we support small shelters on the frontline of dog rescue, which 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.

Thank you for reading and for your patience and compassion in wanting to adopt a rescue dog. Please read on to learn about our adoption process and complete an application form. BUT FIRST! Check out our 'Frequently Asked Questions' to see what we're asked most often.

The process for adopting a dog from DogsnHomes is as follows:

1. Please fill out our ADOPTION/HOME CHECK FORM  and press send at the end.
2. You will receive an email acknowledging your submission and setting out the next steps. Please check your spam / junk folders!
3. If your application is suitable and meets our adoption criteria, we will contact you again to arrange a home check.
4. Following this, we'll have a better understanding of the type of dog most likely to suit you and, if you have a specific dog in mind, whether they are suitable.
5. Once you have completed an adoption form there is no need to complete it again, unless your circumstances / requirements change, as you will be automatically considered as more dogs become available (as long as your application has been approved and you have passed a home check).
And finally ... If you would kindly like and follow our Facebook page and Instagram account, this helps us to raise the charity's profile and help more puppies and dogs find their forever homes.
