Please note that we do not have any dogs at Shepherds View - this is an administration office only.
As a rescue we pride ourselves on finding the right home for the right dog and because of this we have a strict adoption procedure. This is because we want to ensure that both yourself and your dog have many happy years living together.
The very first step to any adoption is actually deciding to adopt and understanding all the responsibilities that go along with owning a dog, and of course deciding what type of dog you would ideally like. We are hoping to very soon have a guide available to help you with this initial decision, so do keep an eye on our website.
Having decided to adopt, the next step is contacting the rescue, either by email or telephone, to complete an initial application form. Again we will soon have an on-line application form but this will probably not be available until the end of June. Please do remember that the rescue is run by volunteers, most of whom do have full time jobs and give their time freely. We apologise therefore that the phone is often on message service and would ask that you bear with us and do leave a message. Email is often quicker as many of our volunteers can answer email enquiries while at work.
Having completed an initial application form, the rescue will then arrange to take up a vet/personal reference and begin to work with you to find the right dog. If we feel we have an appropriate dog in kennels then you will be invited to visit, although as we keep our dogs in commercial kennels then this must be by appointment only. Our visiting times are Monday - Friday, 10.30 - 2.30, Saturday & Sunday 10.30 - 12.30 - please remember an appointment must be made. Please note that visits to dogs that are in foster homes can only be made once a homecheck has been completed. Once a suitable dog is found we will then arrange a home visit. We do endeavour to make this procedure as quick as possible in order to get your new best friend settled with you.
We are sometimes asked why there is such a strict procedure in place when there are so many rescue dogs wanting homes - quite simply this is to ensure that we find the best possible home for our dogs and also the best possible friend for you!
When rehoming we do try to be as flexible as possible and we review each case on an individual basis and depending on the chosen dog.
Our rehoming fees are variable between £100 and £195 depending on age, breed and temperament. Adoption fees will include vaccination and microchipping. Please click here to see our full adoption terms and conditions.
100% of the adoption donation goes towards rescuing and rehoming more abused and abandoned dogs. On average each rescue dogs costs us more than £400.
There is still time to book a stall at our show or sponsor a round/event. £15 donation is all we are looking for which will help all our abandoned dogs. Click here for a sponsorship form and here for a trade stand form.
A full programme of events will be available to download later in the month.
