Free! The only costs will be your travel to come and collect your newly adopted dog.
Adopting to UK/Europe:
It depends on a few factors such as the dog’s size and where it’s being adopted but should be no more than £650 to send a dog with a flight volunteer (excess baggage). However, if you want the dog to fly manifest cargo (faster and more convenient) this can cost between £1,000 – £3,000.
Adopting to the US:
Depending on the size of the dog, where it’s being flown to, and a few other factors the cost to fly the dog with a flight volunteer (excess baggage) is around $500/$900. However, if you want the dog to fly manifest cargo (faster and more convenient), this can cost between $1,000 – $3,000.
Once you’ve decided to adopt and we’ve done a few basic background and home checks, you can collect your adopted dog whenever you’re ready.
Adopting to the UK:
Due to UK regulations on TITER (rabies immunity) testing, the process takes around 3 months from start to finish.
Adopting to the US:
The US doesn’t have any quarantine requirements, so depending on when the flight/flight volunteer can be arranged it could be as soon as 4 weeks after you decide to adopt.
We will arrange the transport logistics so that your adopted dog will be delivered to you at home, or at a pre-arranged collection point.
Time, patience and a lot of tender loving care will be vital to ensure your new adopted dog settles into its new home and environment. Dogs are incredibly adaptable, but if you experience any difficulties you can contact us. We'll be happy to put you in touch with a dog behaviourist for some free advice.
Any dog which we deem fit to re-home will be socialized around humans and other dogs. Most of our dogs will know a few basic obedience commands, able to walk on a lead, and toilet trained in their current kennel/farm environment. Fair warning; this doesn’t always translate to house-training! We’ll let you know in advance if the dog has any behaviour issues to be aware of.
We will be able to connect you with one of our dog behaviourists who can give you advice and guidance on how to deal with any behaviour issues which may arise. Please note that if further training is required, you might be charged for their services.
That’s a very difficult question to answer. Most dogs will suffer some stress and anxiety in being re-homed. But usually, and with the correct handling and treatment, they will settle into their new home, life and routine very quickly.
