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. If your application is suitable and meets our adoption criteria, we will contact you to arrange a home check.
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 specific dog in mind, whether they are suitable or not.
4. Once you have completed an adoption form once, there is no need to complete it again, unless your circumstances / requirements change, as your application will be automatically considered as more dogs become available (as long as your application has been approved and you have passed a home check).

The reason for looking to adopt within a 60-minute drive is because we receive so many applications at present. This is beneficial from the perspective of being able to stay in touch and offer effective backup support if needed. Local adoption also helps support our local dog-related businesses, who in turn support us. 
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.
