Rehoming questionnaire

Generated with MOOJ Proforms Basic Version 1.3
* Required information.

Thank you in advance for taking the time to complete our questionnaire,  and for choosing to adopt a rescue dog. When taking on any new pet, it is important to consider fully that this is a life-long commitment, that may be for 15 years or longer. Also, to appreciate that dogs of all ages (and backgrounds) will take time to settle into their new homes, and some will adapt more quickly than others. In the time leading up to adoption, rescue dogs may have had to cope with a number of changes including losing their previous homes & family, kennels, foster homes and vet visits before arriving at their new home, so they may take a little longer to settle.


Please Ensure that you have read our Homing Guidelines which can be found here before completing the Rehoming Questionnaire.


Please answer all questions fully, as this information helps us to ascertain if the dog you are interested in will be a good match for your family.  If not, we may suggest another dog which is more suited to your lifestyle, needs and requirements .


We will endeavor to respond to your application as soon as possible. However,  we are all volunteers (with other jobs & commitments) , so on occasion this may take a couple of days. If you would like to follow up your application, it would be helpful if you could do so through our 'Contact Us' page.
