Want to Adopt or Foster?

When you or someone you know is ready to share your life with a canine companion - please consider adopting a rescue dog first.

Adoption Process

The Adoption Process

Have you looked at the dogs available on our website?


As we are run by volunteers, we do require that you make an appointment to view our dogs.  Please contact us below to book a day/time. 



Read our Terms & Conditions below and make sure your views on dog ownership align with ours. Please read this entire page to make sure you are ready for adoption day.


Step 2) APPLY

Browse available dogs online and then complete the "Adoption Application". 

We need to talk to you and get a feel for your home, lifestyle and why you are looking to rescue and rehome one of our dogs.


Step 3) MEET & GREET

Once we find you a doggy match we need to introduce him/ her to all members of your family, including other dogs and cats!



To commence the adoption process we require:

  • Proof of landlord approval to have a dog at your home if you rent

  • Photo ID with your address on it – so we know you are who you say you are

  • Adequate funds for – adoption fee; any beds, leads, collars, dog food or other items you need to make your dog comfy in his or her new home. All dogs must leave with a flat collar and lead.


Please understand that a pet is a responsibility that you are agreeing to take on for

the lifetime of the pet.

Getting Started

Before you adopt

Before adopting a dog or puppy, please ask yourself the following questions:

     Do I have time to care for a dog?

This includes time for care, play, companionship and exercise. Dogs are social creatures and do not well if left on their own for long periods of time. Many develop behavioural problems if neglected or not trained. Sadly, many dogs end up back in our shelter because the owner did not realise dogs need regular and ongoing commitment of time.

     Can I afford a dog?

Things like vaccinations, worming and flea treatment, council registration fees and vet fees mount up over a period of time. There may also be unexpected costs of emergency care in case of an accident, or long term care if your pet develops a medical condition. The commitment to meet these costs needs to be factored into your decision to adopt a dog.

     Am I able to properly house a dog?

If you are renting, you need to ensure the landlord accepts pets. You should have written permission to own a dog in the home. Consider whether you pet will reside inside or outside your home and ensure adequate fencing and shelter.
