Adoption Policy for Dogs and Puppies. V2020.1.1
Dogs (6 months or older, neutered)
Firstly, we homecheck everyone, no matter where they are. It is crucial that all members of the family are on board with adopting. We are looking for family homes for our dogs. This means that the dogs are indoor pets and part of the family, not kept outside in kennels on their own.
We strongly recommend that there be a secure garden or a secure area attached to the house. This is to keep the dog (or puppy) from roaming and getting into trouble with livestock or the road. If renting, we will need a letter or email from the landlord giving permission to have the pet. There is an adoption fee of €200, which covers the cost of neutering, vaccination, worming and microchipping.
Puppies (under 6 months)
If homing a small puppy, the pup can't be left alone for long periods. There's an adoption fee of €150 for a puppy. This covers vaccination, worming and their microchip. As the puppy isn’t neutered, you must agree to organize this yourself when the puppy is 6-7 months old. Puppies are not not be used for breeding!
It is important to remember that getting a pet is a lifetime commitment, so please take time to think it through. Let us know if you’re happy to proceed by filling out the form below. Thank you!
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 €350 for a puppy and €500 for an adult dog. This covers their adoption fee, vaccines, microchip, transport, and neutering for adult dogs.
