Transports from Romania to the UK have commenced again however we must stress that when collecting your dog you must adhere to social distance measures and not to crowd around the transport vehicle in numbers. We request that you remain in your vehicle until you are called to come to collect your dog from the transport staff. One person only from the family to come to the vehicle at any one time.
The Adoption Process Explained
Please note – you will be contacted in due course – the wait could be up to two weeks.
This page will explain the whole adoption process from start to finish. Please read carefully before applying to adopt.
All of our adoptions are begun by you completing an adoption application. At the beginning of this is a link which takes you to a seperate page where there is detailed information about the adoption process and our dogs. Please read this, sign and submit before you fill in the rest of the application – If this is not signed your application will not be processed. Then fill in the application form.
Once filled in this form is automatically sent to one of our Adoption Coordinators, who look at it and will then contact you for a more in-depth chat. Providing you and the Coordinator are happy to proceed, we will submit your details for a home check. Whilst that is being arranged, our Coordinators will gather all the information they can about your chosen dog.
The homechecker will contact you and agree a convenient time and date for your check. This will involve, amongst other things, inspecting the property’s boundaries to ensure they are secure, checking there are no hazards which could injure the dog and talking to you about dog adoption. Once the homechecker has finished, the homecheck is sent to your Coordinator. They will then contact you to have a further chat and hopefully finalise the adoption.
Your Vet may be contacted for a reference.
The final decision on your suitability to adopt a dog is solely at our Dog Coordinator’s discretion.
Whilst you may have your heart set on a specific dog, it may not be suitable for your home environment or situation, so therefore the Coordinator will discuss alternative dogs with you which could be more suitable.
Once the right dog for you has been selected and when we know the date the dog can be transported safely and legally, we book him or her on the transport that has been discussed and is convenient with you.
All our dogs from Romania come with a registered microchip, rabies vaccine and at least 2 courses of normal vaccines.
They are wormed, de-flead and will have a Pet Passport and Health Record. If the dog is old enough it will also be neutered prior to transport.
All transports leave Romania every two weeks on a Thursday and arrive in the UK early Saturday morning.
You are able to collect your dog on the morning of arrival at our pick up points around the UK including Chieveley Services M4 J13 or Markfield Services M1 J22. Please make sure you have a slip lead, as we will not allow a dog to be offloaded from the van without a slip lead to secure it.
This is the whole adoption process.
Once the dog is in your home it is then your responsibility to ensure that dog is safe and secure at all times.
Please read all the information that our Adoption Coordinators provide during the process – this is to help you, help the adoption run smoothly and help your new dog settle into it’s new life..
