Who can adopt
If you are thinking of adopting one of our dogs, you should be aware of your responsibilities as a dog owner.
See our animal education and control fees and charges list for current adoption charges. The fee charged reflects the costs of preparing each dog for adoption as outlined below.
- All dogs adopted from us are registered, microchipped and desexed.
- All dogs available for adoption have passed a behavioural assessment, to ensure they are of suitable temperament to join a home.
- Puppies under six months old are also given at least their first vaccination against parvo and kennel cough while in our care. There is an extra charge or this service (per vaccination) which reflects their current actual cost.
