The process starts with a prospective new owner filling out our adoption questionnaire, which you will find here. The questionnaire provides us with more of an idea about you and the kind of animal that you are seeking. Once your adoption questionnaire has been submitted, a member of our re-homing team will be in touch as soon as possible to discuss and arrange a home-check.
A home-check involves one of our volunteers meeting you at your house to have a chat with you about your daily routine, and your plans for your new pet. They will also need to meet the other people (and pets!) that live with you. They may ask to see where your new pet will sleep. If you are adopting a dog or puppy, they will also need to look at your garden, to ensure that it`s fully and safely enclosed (no dog pens).
One of the re-homing team will be in contact with you as soon as possible following the home-check to advise if it has been successful and to answer any questions that you may have.
If successful the re-homing team member will discuss with you the most suitable animals for you that are currently available for adoption and will arrange with you to meet them.
Please also check out our Facebook page to see some of the animals that are currently available for adoption.
A set donation of €100 for a puppy and €150 for a spayed/neutered adult dog applies to anyone adopting one of our dogs.
A set donation of €50 for a kitten and €80 for a spayed/neutered adult cat applies to anyone adopting one of our cats.
This donation covers the cost of all vaccinations and worm and flea treatment for each of our animals; it also covers the cost of spaying/neutering our adult animals and micro-chipping our puppies and dogs.
We ask only for this nominal donation to cover our basic costs so that we can continue to save lives when emergencies happen. Your donation is not the price of your rescue dog; it is to help us to continue to help them.
You will be asked to sign an adoption agreement (please click PDF or Word icons below for a copy) before taking ownership of your new animal. This records your contact details and outlines your responsibilities to your new animal.
