Application Status: Homechecks in Progress

Applications are in progress for this dog.

Some applicants may be in the final stages with their application and their homecheck being reviewed by our volunteers.

You can still apply for this dog until the dog is marked as reserved.

Once the homecheck has been completed, applicants will need to wait to hear if they are successful in adopting the dog.

The most suitable home for the dog will be selected and the successful applicant will be given the option to reserve the dog.

The dog will then become unavailable for adoption to other members of the public and will be marked as reserved.

In the event the dog is reserved by someone further along in the process, you may wish to select an alternative dog that is waiting for a home. You will not need to repeat your application if a homecheck has been completed, you can email to advise you which dog you would like to reserve.

During the pandemic, we are much busier than usual and as we are run by volunteers we are unfortunately unable to respond to everyone individually about the status of their application.

Please rest assured your application is appreciated and we recommend checking the status information for updates on the dog you wish to adopt until you are either contacted and given details of the next steps or the dog is reserved.

Occasionally dogs may become available again and the status bar will change to reflect this.

Thank you for your interest in this dog and for your patience and understanding in these difficult times.
