Tell me why you would make the perfect home for the dog you are applying for?
All adopters must sign an Adoption Contract and agree the Terms and Conditions of Adoption.
All fosterers must sign the Fosterers Guidelines and Agreement
The Adopter must insure the dog/bitch within 7 days of adoption.
The dog/bitch will remain microchipped to ARUNDAWN DOG RESCUE for life.
Arundawn Dog Rescue asks for a minimum Adoption Donation of £195.00 This takes into consideration the fact that the dog has been vaccinated, wormed, flea treated microchipped, and neutered (if applicable). The dog will have had a full health check at the time of rehoming and all known existing health issues will have been treated. This donation can sometimes help us in our ever on-going rescue and homing of dogs in need.
All un-neutered dogs/bitches will be subject to the Adopter signing a Neutering Agreement.
All Adoption Donations are non-refundable and are a Donation and not a Purchase of said dog/bitch.
