DOGS NEEDING LOVING HOMES

(Photos courtesy of Tell Tails Photography)




We always have lots of very lovely dogs needing good homes.
All our dogs are microchipped, so if they ever get lost they can be re-united with you very quickly.
We vaccinate our dogs when they come into the rescue if they are not already up to date. Some will need a second injection given later, so you may have to take your new dog to get this done after you have adopted it.
If you are interested in a particular dog, it is always best to telephone the rescue on 0118 9341122 before coming, to make sure the dog has not already been booked.
Please read our Homing Criteria BEFORE coming to see any of our dogs.
We always do a home check before any dog is adopted. This can usually be arranged within a couple of days, but can take a lot longer depending on your location and availability of our homechecker! Once the home check is done we ask that you pick your new pet up within 24 hours, to free up the kennel for another dog needing our help.

We try very hard to make sure our dogs and puppies have the best possible care, given that they are in a rescue environment. We hope to give them the best start to their new lives with you, their adopters, and our staff and volunteers commit a huge amount of time and resources to this. We expect adopters to match this commitment.
When you take on one of our dogs, you are taking on the responsibility for the rest of his or her lifetime. Please look ahead to the future with your dog.
Are you really sure that you are sufficiently committed to the time, effort, training and expense that your dog will need, not just immediately but for a lifetime? Are you going to be able to work through the challenges and issues that are part of dog ownership?
Rescue dogs are no different from other dogs: they all need to be continually trained and controlled, exercised and looked after, and loved and cherished.
The difference with rescue dogs is that humans have already let them down at least once. Please do not book or adopt one of our dogs unless you are completely prepared to work with them, come what may, and that you are COMPLETELY determined that YOU will not be the human who lets them down again.

OUR ANIMALS ARE NOT AN "IMPULSE BUY"!
It is absolutely essential that you view adoption as a LIFETIME commitment before you even consider offering a home to any DBARC animal, bearing always in mind that we do not sell animals but instead seek responsible adopters who will care for them for life.
If you offer a home to one of our animals, we then book the animal to you while a homecheck is arranged. Unfortunately, some people do this then change their minds.
Time-wasters cost too much. Let us explain:

We are very disappointed when people are Time-wasters in this way, nearly as disappointed as we are when people take on animals then return them after a short time without having the compassion and understanding to work with them, perhaps with training classes or with our advice and help. After all, any relationship, whether with animals or people, requires work and commitment! So please THINK very carefully before you book or adopt an animal. This is not a decision to be taken lightly, but it is essential that you have done all your thinking before you offer a home to an innocent little soul who has already faced rejection and trauma. There will be many more animals, so do not rush your choice or compromise the chances for an individual animal.

Our suggested minimum donation for one of our dogs is £180
Donations made by adopters are a vital contribution to our funds. They are not compulsory, as a good home is the first consideration for our animals. Our adopters almost invariably wish to make a donation at the time of adoption however, and the above suggestion represent approx. half the average cost to our charity of preparing each dog for rehoming, although many do cost the charity a lot more due to health and other problems. We try our best to give all animals in our care whatever help they need. Therefore larger donations are always much appreciated
If you are not comfortable with making a donation, please consider the effect this will have on the charity’s ability to help other animals in need in the future. Please also consider your ability to meet the considerable ongoing expenses that responsible animal care represents. These matters should be discussed with us before the adoption proceeds.

Open daily 11.00am to 1.00pm, and 2.00pm to 4.00pm
(PLEASE NOTE - telephone calls will not be answered at weekends and at busy times - the care of our animals will take priority)
