I Need To Rehome My Dog. What Do I Have To Do?

< All Topics

The first thing to do after making the tough decision to rehome your dog is to complete our Surrendering a Dog form on the website. Complete it with as much detail as you can, including a photo if possible.

We do have a constant waiting list for spaces in our kennels so it is not feasible to expect that the dog can be taken immediately. It can take from a few days to a few months depending on how quickly kennels are made available through rehoming.

Once you have completed the form, someone from the kennels will make contact as soon as possible, usually by phone or email.

You will be asked to complete an assessment form which contains questions about your dog including;

  • Name, age, gender, breed etc
  • Medical history
  • Dietary requirements
  • Likes and dislikes
  • Daily routine
  • Suitability with dogs, children, cats etc

Once there is a place at the kennels available, you will be contacted and asked to bring your dog at a prearranged date and time. You may bring any personal items of your dogs that you wish to go with him/her to its new home. At the moment you will also be given information about the social distancing measures we have in place to ensure your safety while at the kennels.

The last thing you will have to do is sign the Surrender Form which is the legal document surrendering your legal rights and responsibilities to and for the dog.
