Dog adoption

All dogs which have been collected by our dog warden service as stray dogs and have not been claimed by their owners within the statutory seven day period are passed to the kennels for re-homing. Prospective owners are charged a nominal amount by the kennels to adopt the dogs whatever the breed, age or sex of the dog.

Whilst we make every effort to advise new owners about the dog, responsibility for the dog's temperament, health and condition passes to the owner when they sign the adoption form. However, the dog is adopted on a fourteen day trial basis and if the owner decides the dog is unsuitable during this time, they can return it to the kennels. Any owner who wants to return a dog to the kennels after this period will be charged an acceptance fee.
