Adoption Fees

Time considerations

All pets require a portion of your time, some pets more than others. It’s important to remember that it’s not just about the time you need to set aside for interaction, like walks, feeding, training, play time etc. but also the time you’ll need to be at home. Dogs especially shouldn’t be left alone for long periods of time, as they can become distressed and develop behaviour issues.

With regards to dogs, if you and the other people you live with all work full time, and aren’t able to make arrangements during the day (dog walkers, returning at lunch, taking the dog to the office etc.) then we’d be unlikely to recommend owning a dog. Dogs are social animals and are happiest when they have someone to interact with, or even just keep them company.

Lifestyle considerations

Not everyone has a lifestyle that supports certain types of pet ownership, and taking on a pet that could live for decades is a big responsibility. Many of the dogs that come into our care are as a result of misunderstanding or underestimating just how much time and effort it takes to own a dog.

But there are other considerations than time:

  • Can you give your pet safe access to a garden or somewhere safe outside?
  • Animals cannot be let outside when they are first rehomed
  • What coat type would you prefer? Would you mind having to groom your pet every day and frequently vacuum your house?
  • Do you live on a main road?
