So you've seen a dog that you like and you're keen to know a little more about it? 

1. The first thing to do is complete the pre-adoption form on the 'more' tab and send it to us in an email to [email protected].com 

2. Secondly we'll get back to you asap either via email or phone and have a chat to you about the dog you'd like and see if we think it will suit you etc, after all we want you and the dog to be happy with each other.

3. Thirdly we arrange a meet and greet, where you and your family and or other dog if you have one come and meet the dog in question, if all this goes to plan we go to the next step. (if you live far away we may do step 4 before step 3 to save you too many journeys)

4. Fourthly we set up a homevet, it's not as scary as it seems, we simply want to make sure that your garden is secure and that the dog won't get out and we just want to check that you've thought through some things, ie where the dog will sleep etc.

5.And finally you can adopt the dog if it's all gone well. We ask a £250 donation for each dog adopted towards vet bills and other costs incurred.

Please note : Visiting the rescue is by appointment only.

What to remember

Not every dog you fall in love with on our site will be suitable for your set up, so please don't be offended if we suggest another dog instead of the one you've set your heart on. After all we want we all want is a happily ever after for everyone.We're not here to judge you, we just want the right dog in the right home. We are happy to rehome to families with children if the dog is suitable and the kids are trustworthy around the dogs. We are more than happy to rehome dogs to older people, but again only if the dog is suitable to the home. We are also happy to rehome dogs to people who work, again as long as you suit each other.If you can't see the kind of dog you want on the website currently, please feel free to send us an email anyway and we'll let you know if anything suitable comes in.
Thanks for taking the time to read all this and for supporting Happily Ever After Dog Rescue xx
