If you would like to offer one of the following dogs a home, please read through our adoption process page before proceeding. Please read thoroughly through the dogs description before applying.

The dogs at our rescue centre are with us because they have been found on the streets, or their previous homes have not worked out. Most of the dogs are well balanced, well adjusted dogs that are with us through no fault of their own and will make excellent pets for first time dog owners. A small number of dogs have issues, which with training, patience, and love, can be easily managed or resolved by owners who have previous experience with dogs, and are willing to work with us and qualified trainers and behaviourists.

We make every effort to ensure that all our dogs go to caring homes that are suited to their individual needs and temperaments. We have general requirements, however we take into consideration any potential home, and we are happy to work with and advise new owners to plan the best and safest set up for their new dog.

Below is a list of some of the things that we always look for when we rehome a dog, unless otherwise specified in the dogs description. Please make sure you fulfil the following requirements before you contact us. Our main interest is to find as suitable a home as possible for each individual dog. Our points to be taken into consideration are as follows;

  • The dog will be allowed in the house. We do NOT re-home dogs that will be outside all of the time. We prefer the dog to sleep in the house at night.
  • We never rehome dogs to guard premises or for breeding.
  • We do not home dogs to people with extremely long leaving hours without alternative arrangements e.g. dog walkers or doggie daycare. Puppies especially need lots of socialising time.
  • You have a secure fenced or walled garden so the dog cannot get out if you live on or near a road or in a town.
  • You have permission from your landlord if you live in rented accommodation.
  • You have sufficient time to give the dog adequate exercise and mental stimulation.

If you fulfil the above requirements, have a look below at the dogs and puppies needing homes. Viewing the dogs at our rescue centre is by appointment only, Monday to Saturday 11am – 3pm. You can make an appointment by email, after filling out the adoption questionnaire.
