To the people that are now off work, your applications will not be dealt with until the Government deem it safe again, you are welcome to re apply then.............sorry but the safety of our volunteers is paramount.
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.
Once the adoption registration 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, then volunteers will transport the dog between certain towns forming a ‘dally train’ so the dog reaches the destination required.
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
