All You Need To Know About Adopting A Dog
Find your new best (dog) friend!
Congratulations! You’ve made the right decision in choosing to adopt a dog rather than shop for one! We have many beautiful homeless dogs of all kinds at NCAR and you can search for your perfect canine companion knowing that our expert staff have had the chance to get to know the dog and can pass on their knowledge to you.
Some dogs will have had particularly difficult pasts and it’s unsurprising that a few may have issues. There is nothing more rewarding than showing a dog that it can trust people again once it has met the right family.
You can also check out our Sticky Pets here. These are the dogs who have been here the longest for a variety of reasons but they all have one thing in common – they all need a new best friend who understands their special needs and is willing to work with our dog behaviour experts to help them become the happy dog they were meant to be!
And every week we feature a Dog of the Week. A dog we’d like to draw your attention to that we think needs a special forever home as soon as possible.
And remember that we never put an animal to sleep unless they are suffering and will not recover or they are unsafe to rehome after a behaviourist has worked with the animal at length. Once we take in an animal, it will remain with us until a new home is found.
First of all check out the list below but please don’t feel intimidated. We would just like to help you decide if you would like to adopt one of our dogs, and we hope to see you soon at the rescue.
Getting to know the dog
Once you have chosen your dog our carers will give you more help and advice as they know each dog personally.
Dog Adoption Fees
|Dogs (6 months and over)
|Puppy (up to 6 months)
|Pedigree Dog (full paperwork)
The adoption fee includes the cost of a number of vet treatments.
If you were to take the dogs to the vets yourselves the suggested adoption donations don’t come to anywhere near as much!
On reserving an animal, we will need a deposit of £20 per dog or puppy.
The adoption process shouldn’t take much more than a week to be completed, home check included (this may vary by location).
