If you see a dog on this website you would like to give a home to please call 07849 637862 or 01780783331. The kennel staff are always really busy, and Ros also works as a mobile groomer so its not always possible to get an answer straight away. Please do leave a message and someone will call you back.
We will just ask you some simple questions to find out what sort of dog your are looking for, about yourselves, where you live etc.
Meet the dog
You are welcome to come to the kennels. Please make an appointment. This is very important to make sure someone is availiable to show you round.
People come to the kennels for 2 reasons. One that they have seen a dog on th internet they would like to meet or some people want to just see the dogs and choose one they fall in love with. Either way this is fine. We will make sure the dog fits your life style.
Please bring all members of the family with you to meet the dog including children. If you have another dog please also bring them. This meeting is also to see if the dog likes you as much as, if you like the dog.
Once you have chosen your new furry friend we will arrange a home check. This is nothing to worry about. We are not interested in your decor and if you have hoovered this morning. We are only interested in the dogs welfare and that you have a suitable home. I.e. a fenced in garden and that your home meets the dogs needs. For example a home check will fail if you want a St Bernard and live in a bedsit!
If you have quite a distance to travel, have spoken in depth to the rehoming people about a particular dog; we can arrange a home check before you come to Peterborough so you can take the dog back with you. We have home checkers all over the country so this usually is feesable.
Taking the dog home
Once your home check has been sucsessful you can collect your dog.
Please have in place all the items you need to bring a new dog home. Water and food bowls, lead, collar, toys, food, bed etc.
We hope for a minimum donation of £100-£200. depending on the age & pedigree of the dog.
Please bare in mind we rely on these donations to help other dogs. A puppy will cost several hundreds from a breeder so if you can afford me please consider this.
If the adoption fee is a problem, please consider if you can afford a dog at all.
Adoption fees are non refundable even in the case of a dog being returned, unless extreme circumstances (for example the original owner is found and you are happy to hand the dog back)
In most instances the dog will have been nuetered. If there are circumstances that prevent the dog being neutred we will ask you to sign adoption papers insisting this is done. This is very much a term of the adoption and we will check.
We do a follow up home check in a few months time just to make sure everyone is happy. If you have any problems please just call. Do bare in mind a home enviroment might be very over whelming for a little while to the dog. Children should not be allowed to smother him. Please don't bring a dog back because he has done a wee on the kitchen floor or chewed something he shouldn't have, if these sort of instances are intorable to you, then dog ownership really is not for you.
