Adoption Policy for Dogs and Puppies. V2020.1.1
Firstly we homecheck everyone, no matter where they are. We are looking for family homes for our dogs. All members of the family must be on board with adopting. This means they are indoor pets and part of the family, not kept outside in kennels on their own. There must be a secure garden or a secure area attached to the house. This is to keep the dog or pup from roaming and getting into trouble with livestock or the road. If renting we would need a letter or email from the landlord giving permission to have the pet. There is an adoption fee of €200.
If homing a small puppy, the pup can't be left alone for long periods. There's an adoption fee of €200 for a puppy. This covers vaccination, worming and their microchip. If the puppy isn’t neutered you must agree to organize this yourself when the puppy is 6 - 7 months old. It is a lot to digest but it's all for the good of our dogs and the new owners as it’s a lifetime commitment. Let us know if you’re happy to proceed by filling out the form below. Again thanks for your interest.
Rehoming to the UK
Before our rescue dogs can travel to the UK, they need to be microchipped and vaccinated (against the flu and rabies).
Puppies can get their rabies vaccination at 12 weeks, after which they have to wait 30 days before travel. The youngest that the puppies can travel to the UK is at 16 weeks.
The costs are €450 for a puppy and €500 for an adult dog. This covers their adoption fee, vaccines, microchip, transport, and neutering for adult dogs.
