Adopting a DAS dog
The majority of dogs go directly to their new home from their old one and can be located anywhere in the UK, it will not be possible for you to meet them prior to adoption. We go and meet and assess all the dogs and pass all the relevant information on to prospective adopters and provide a life time rescue back up to all the dogs.................if this is not the way you want to proceed, then please do not apply to adopt from us.
If you feel you have the time, love and care to give a furever home to one of our gorgeous Dalmatians, then please complete a registration form for adoption. We would ask that you complete the questions on this form with honesty, as it forms the basis for selecting the right dog for you. DAS Dalmatians does not rehome on a first come, first served basis but matches owners with the dog. This has proved very successful as very few dogs are returned to us.
Please fill in all of the adoption application form and add the extra information that is required or we will not be able to proceed.
Once the adoption application form has been approved then a home assessment will be made. This is completed by appointment and helps to ensure that everything is in place for the adoption to take place.
Photographs will be available and information on the dogs’ personality and circumstances will be given.
If a dog is not neutered, then it will be re homed with a neutering contract in place and must be done at the appropriate age.
There is an expectation that the adopter will travel a reasonable distance to pick up their new member of the family.
Where great distances need to be travelled, it may be possible for some volunteers to help transport the dog between certain towns forming a ‘dally train’ so the dog reaches the destination required, although this can not be guaranteed.
Like other rescues we ask for an adoption contribution. These are detailed on the form. This helps us to do what we do and is used for the dogs in our care
Due to the Covid situation and us being bombarded with applications, we have made the decision that we are going to alter the way we run.
As from today, 9th June 2020, when a dog becomes available to adopt, we will post that dog on our Facebook page and website and invite people to apply by e mailing us and we will then send a new application form by return for you to complete……
PLEASE DO NOT SEND AN OLD APPLICATION FORM IN, IT WILL NOT BE PROCESSED
Also please make sure you mark our e mail as safe to avoid it going into your spam folder.
DAS consists of Sue, Chris and Shirley and Sam who do the fundraising. We all have families and jobs and our time is very limited.
We do hope you understand and please keep your eyes on our facebook page and website for dogs available in future.

I am 9 years old ... I will be 10 in September.
I am at DAS as I no longer get on with my spotty sister, I don't know why but I hurt her so I need to be an only dog and have all your attention and love.
I am a stone former and had a urethrostomy done when I was 2 years old, they also took my dangly bits off at the same time and I have been ok since then.
I am now fed on Dr John Silver,chicken and veg like my other brothers here who are stone formers and must stay on that food if I am adopted .... but I don't think anyone will want me cos people will think I am too old..... Aunty Sue says it doesn't matter though cos she will be my Mum if I stay here.
I am said to be a bit reactive while on a lead when I meet another dog but after a while I get bored and am ok .... you may need to help me with that when we are out.
I can pull like a trooper too even though I am only little.
I think cats make good toys and will chase them.
There are lots of dogs here at DASville and some are great big boogers but I've been ok with them and Aunty Sue says she is very proud of me.
I can only live with older children over 12 cos I don't want to share my new parents with them.....at 12 they can be big and smelly and not want adults around but I do !!
I will give you a few years of love and cuddles
