Things to consider before homing a dog!

When taking on any animal there has to be commitment and we feel that a visit to our sanctuary allows prospective owners to appreciate 'what's involved'. They have the opportunity to see these dogs in their home environment and witness their behaviour. A good temperament is the most important consideration. However, meeting our dogs will give prospective owners an idea of size and colour if they have a preference. Any questions or issues can be raised and discussed, such as:

Can you commit to up to 15 years for the dog's welfare and needs?

Can you afford to keep a dog, veterinary bills or insurance?

Who will spend time with the dog and train it?

When going on holiday, can you take the dog or afford kennel bills?

Are you getting a dog for the right reason?

Are there other pets in the house that will be affected by the presence of a dog?

Have you the time to exercise, groom and care for a dog?

Will someone be at home with your dog for at least half of the day?

??????????

If we feel that you would make a suitable owner and you would like to go ahead with adoption we will set the wheels in motion, a process which will take approximately 2 weeks.

ALTERNATIVELY:

If, at this moment in time, your circumstances are not appropriate, you might consider sponsoring a dog. Visit our 'Sponsor a dog' page to find out more.
