How do our dogs get prepared for their loving forever homes?
Dogs come to us from many different scenarios.
Some need to be rescued urgently on welfare grounds and taken to a place of safety, heading to kennels to begin their assessments.
Others are surrendered from family homes, in these cases they are often first assessed in their usual environment to give us the benefit of extra information that helps us when looking for their perfect new home.
Regardless of their history or circumstances, their assessments are overseen by qualified and experienced members of our ‘Dog Wellbeing Team’, as well as our Canine Care Coordinator.
Every dog is different and so their support plan is tailored to cover everything from their medical needs to their emotional wellbeing. They each have a designated trainer or behaviourist within the Dog Wellbeing Team who are all on hand to help, as well as key volunteers to take them on adventures and make sure life is fun before they are ready to come home to you.
Every step of the way the dogs are sharing their video diaries on social media so please do follow our Facebook or Instagram accounts if you would like to see them.
Dogs who are elderly, sick, very young, or with no behavioural issues and full history, who pass all of the assessments may be fast tracked to an experienced, pre-vetted and pre-approved foster placement from our Lifeline List.
Usually though, once they have had their vet check-up and vaccinations they go to the lovely kennels that we rent for further assessments. There are a few reasons for this:
