For anyone wishing to adopt one of the rescues dog’s we’ve now made the adoption form available on the website via a clickable link CCUKMR_Adoption_Form, the form is in Word and once completed should be emailed to the rescue at : firstname.lastname@example.org, by downloading and completing this form you enable the rescue to better ascertain suitability for both you as an adopter and most importantly the dogs in its care.
We will now be adding the form to all posts relating to dogs in the rescue and all future rescues, the form is also availble to download from the rescues home page.
We would ask that if you wish to adopt one of our rescue dogs that you complete and return the form before ringing the rescue, this allows the rescue to have all the relevant information available before you contact them and also free’s up valuable time that volunteers would normally spend on phone calls.
Some people may ask why rescues have these questionaires/adoption forms ? , rescues have these forms to ensure that all the dogs that come through our doors— many of whom they’ve saved from illness, abuse and death — are placed in permanent, loving homes where they will we hope be spoiled and pampered for the rest of their doggy lives.
There is no 100% way to make sure whether an adopter or foster can provide the perfect environment or home for our rescues, so we use the adoption form to help us screen potential applicants, completing the form provides the rescue with lots of important information such as :
- Does the potential adopter live in a flat
- Do they work long hours
- Do you live in the city or the countryside
- Do you have other dogs or pets
- If you have infants or toddlers living with you
- If you live in a house with a garden, what sort of security do you have and what is the height of your fence
These are just a few of the questions we and other rescues will ask before allowing a dog to go home with you and your family, we want to ensure that the dogs are suited for the family and household as much as we want to ensure that the family is suited to the rescue dog.
All the questions in the Adoption form help to place the right rescue in the right home.
