The Adoption Process
If after consideration you still
feel you are the kind of owners we need, a visit
to the Sanctuary will enable you to see these
dogs in a home environment and witness their
behaviour. You will see the many sizes and
colours, however TEMPERAMENT IS THE NUMBER 1
PRIORITY. Any questions or issues can be raised
During your visit you will be given
literature containing as much information as you
will need. We recommend that you go home and read
this throughly and if you still wish to proceed
with adoption then contact us again.
A choice of both male and female
dogs will be given to you, selected on
temperament. If you have more specific
requirements i.e., cat friendly, or a particular
colour, the process may take a little longer.
Generally the whole procedure will take
approximately 2-3 weeks. If you view a dog on the
website of one of our 65 branches throughout the
U.K., we would be only too pleased to enquire as
to its suitability.......WE CANNOT STRESS ENOUGH
THE PARAMOUNT IMPORTANCE OF TEMPERAMENT.
A member of Greyhound Rescue will
accompany the dog back from the U.K., having
administered a worm and flea treatment before
arrival. We ask that you collect your dog from
the Sanctuary in order to complete adoption forms
and your 4 weeks free insurance with Pet Plan.
Your dog will have been neutered and vaccinations
will be up-to-date. We will also supply you with
a collar, lead, muzzle, winter coat and mac.
WE ARE AVAILABLE AT ANY TIME SHOULD
YOU HAVE ANY QUESTIONS OR CONCERNS
