Are you looking to adopt from us? Here's how to begin...

The above dogs are some of the dogs that are in our care currently. Their statuses are marked clearly above and updated regularly. Please do not email for individual updates on dogs, any information available is on their profile.


Please remember: We are not dog breeders or a pet shop - we are a charity and cannot confirm when more dogs will come in to the Rescue. We take in dogs that need assistance in some way and often have their own unique "quirks".  We see ourselves as working for our dogs. It is not a first in first served process. We pair dogs with families that suit them. We thank you for your patience and understanding.


If you are interested in any of our dogs, please submit an application form, together with the enclosures noted on the form to our email. Once the information is received we will consider the application and contact you. Failure to provide all information may result in a delayed or declined application. 


For more information on our processes and adoption, please read the "FAQ" at the bottom of that page and our Adoption Agreement. We expect that you know this information upon applying and agree to be bound by it.  


Adoption Process and Forms Here

What if none of the above dogs are suitable for me?

If the current dogs above are not available in your area, or you do not match their adopter requirements, you may still submit an application form to be retained in our database. This way, should we advertise any dogs in future that are suitable you can email us expressing your interest. 


At times, we may receive dogs that the former owners do not wish for us to advertise on social media and we exclusively consult pre-approved adopters in our database. This is another benefit of submitting your application prior.


Please note - submitting an application and/or being approved does not place an obligation on the Trust to provide you with a dog. We are not breeders or a pet store and do not act in a demand and supply manner. We take in dogs that need assistance and cannot guarantee as to when new dogs will come in.


Do note Facebook message or email us asking what dogs are available, we will simply refer you back to the website. We do not provide individual updates on dogs via email to prospective adopters, we place general updates on our website and social media only.
