The Fetcher Dog adoption process.
In order to ensure our dogs, go to the right homes for adoption, we carry out an adoption procedure to make sure our dogs have the best chance at a happy life.
Step 1 - All potential adopters need to fill out a pre-adoption form which asks questions about you, your family (including your pets), your work and your home.
Step 2 - After this has been completed and returned to us, we assess the results to see if we think everything is suitable and if the dog you are interested in is the right fit for you. If everything looks good, we carry out a home check.
Step 3 - The home check allows us to meet you and see where the dog would be living. The home checks are carried out by local volunteers who can give your personal experience of adopting a rescue dog from us.
Step 4 - We then arrange a zoom call with Jordan and Stephanie Connor, two of the Fetcher Dog founders to answer any further questions you may have. We aim to let you know everything about the dog that we know prior to the start of the process and carry out checks with other dogs, cats and children beforehand. If this is passed, we can arrange an adoption.
Step 5 - If required potential adopters can have a meet and greet, at the rescue centre, these can be useful to see your chosen dog, take existing dogs and/or family members to endure you are compatible and see the dog in a familiar place to them
Step 6 - You get to start your new life with your new family member
