Frequently Asked Questions - Surrendering Your Dog
Q. I need to surrender my dog, what do I do?
A. Get in touch with us. Please give us as much information as possible, we are here for help and advice. We will not judge. Circumstances change and life often throws difficulties at us, we understand that. Sue (who set up and runs the rescue) knows this first hand, having had to give up her dog years ago, which is why she started DAS. She knows first hand how difficult and heartbreaking it can be
Q. I need to know my dog will be happy and safe
A. Our priority is always the safety and happiness of the dogs. We match the dog to the adopter, so it is not a first come, first serve basis. We will do everything we can to ensure your dog goes to a loving home
Q. Will I be able to contact the new owners for updates?
A. At DAS Dalmatians we do provide updates for previous owners but only through us and not directly with the new owners. This is something that not all rescues do
Q. Can you take my dog straightaway?
A. We would ask that you try to give as much time as possible for us to find the most suitable person for your dog. We only have limited space at DASVILLE, as our dogs are not in kennels but live 'free range'. However, please speak to us and we will do our best to help.
Q My dog is not neutered/spayed, is that a problem?
A.DAS Dalmatians have a neutering policy. If your dog is too young to be neutered, then it would be a condition of the adoption to have this performed as soon as possible. We do ask for a voluntary contribution of £50 to go towards any health needs if this is possible
