HELPFUL HINTS TO FIND A OWNER FOR YOUR BELOVED PET
Try looking to see if the breed has a designated rescue group, BFR's LINKS page may be able to help you.
Please have your dog DESEXED and brought up-to-date on vaccinations before you place him/her into a new home.
We also recommend that you ask for an adoption fee, if they can not afford a fee they can not afford to vaccinate or give your dog Vet treatment.
Please do not place a FREE TO GOOD HOME on any ad as there are unscrupulous characters who will con people out of free dogs only to try to make a profit by selling them to laboratory research or selling them for a profit or dog fighting rings.
Always ask for their Vet's phone number and ring and ask the Vet for a reference of the person enquiring .. if they have NO Vet then you can be assured your pet will never see a Vet again.
Always deliver your pet to the new home so you get to inspect the property and the environment your pet will be living in.
Remember you are the voice for your pet .. it is relying on you to make the right decision.
There are many different reasons why people need to surrender their animals.
Every case is unique and everyone has different circumstances, please explore all of your possibilities before you resort to giving your pet away.
Can you hold on to your animal while a new home is found? Can someone in your extended family look after the animal while a new home is found?
We can advertise on our private adoption page for you, our service is designed to help you re-home your pet into a home you have found via our website.
If you would like to use this service simply send a photo and description of your dog with your contact details, a donation for this service would be very much appreciated and used towards savings more animals.
Do you have a pet with behaviour issues?
You may think a dog cannot learn but believe me animals are not set in their ways .. by getting some dog training and by teaching them they cannot get away with the bad behaviour they will change.
Walking a dog and socialising a dog also helps wonders .. please check out our training tips or emailfor details on our recommended trainer.
Are you surrendering because of a new baby?
It will take your animal some adjusting because they have gone from being your number 1 baby to having to share your time. You can start training your animal before your child is born but it is never too late for training , please contact via email and we will forward our recommended trainer.
All surrendered pet fees are $75.00, this fee will cover transportation and contribute towards vet care and food for your pet until adoption.
