This is how our adoption process works:
Complete on-line Application form - please answer all questions with as much relevant information as possible so that we can properly evaluate your application. For puppies/young dogs please include your plans for training/socialisation classes.
If not successful you will be notified by email, if potentially successful you will be phoned by the foster carer to discuss your chosen dog and your application further.
If the call goes well and both parties feel it could be a good match we will arrange a home check for you - usually this can be completed within a few days. Outside of South Wales it can take a little longer but we are very happy to rehome all over the UK.
Following a successful homecheck you will be contacted by the foster carer to make arrangements for you to have an initial visit to the dog at his/her foster home - the visit must include all family members plus resident dog(s).
Dogs won't be rehomed at the first visit so as to give all parties time to consider whether the home/dog are a good match. If all is well and everyone agrees it's a good match there will be a second visit to collect your chosen dog.
Please note that we are not able to hold dogs to cover holidays etc. and once a successful visit/homecheck has taken place you will be expected to complete the adoption within a couple of days provided the dog has finished its two week assessment.
