Rehome RequestWe are a rescue organisation devoting our time and resources to dogs in situations that need immediate help, ie. at risk dogs, dogs in animal shelters, those suffering from abuse. These will always take precedence.

We can help you to rehome your dog after attempts by yourself have not been successful but require that dogs are desexed, council registered and vaccinated.  Fosterhomes are reserved for dogs without owners so will require you to continue caring for your dog until a home is found for them. All dogs needing to be rehomed will need to have a request to rehome form completed and a recent photograph supplied.  We will then contact you to arrange a temperament assessment of your dog. We also require a vet report on your dog’s current state of health.

All our helpers are volunteers and we often cannot arrange assessments at short notice.

In order to ensure that we find a new home where your dog will be loved and cared for, please answer the following questions as fully and as honestly as possible. If your dog is accepted into our program you will be required to sign over ownership of the dog to rescue.

Space in foster homes, however, is always in short supply and we may request that you continue to care for your dog until an appropriate permanent home is found. In some cases we have to board the dogs while we are waiting a foster or forever home.  Please note that we are predominantly a rescue organisation though are happy to help with rehoming non-rescue dogs with genuine reasons for rehoming.

We cannot accept dogs with a known bite history.

We are predominately an organistation to help dogs without owners. We are happy to ‘help’ you rehome your dog providing they are suitable as family pets.
