Adoption Process

The following is the Adoption Process for dogs from Save our Strays.

If you see a dog/dogs you are interested in we ask you to make an appointment with Margaret on 01642 488667 to arrange to come and meet them. It is also useful to introduce them to any other dogs living in your household.

Following your meeting we will carry out a homecheck to ensure that both your home environment, arrangements for the dog and your lifestyle meets the needs of your chosen dog. Following this the dog will come to you on a two week trial during which we will contact you regularly to check on progress. If at the end of the two weeks you wish to adopt the dog, we will call out to see you again to complete the adoption forms at which time the adoption fee of £120 will be payable, this includes neutering, vaccinations and microchipping.

Please note that in the event you are unable to care for your dog at some time in the future you must return the dog to Save Our Strays and not pass the dog on to anyone else. All our dogs are microchipped to SOS.
