Adopt A Dog

At Fetcher Dog, we want to make sure all of the dogs in our care go to the best homes so that they can have the lives that they so desperately deserve. A lot of our dogs have lived through pain and suffering, so it is extremely important to us that they go on to live full and fun lives, full of love.

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. 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. 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 homecheck. The homecheck allows us to meet you and see where the dog would be living. The homechecks are carried out by local volunteers who can give you personal experience of adopting a rescue dog from us. We then arrange a zoom call with Jordan and Stephanie Connor, two of the Fetcher Dog CEOs 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.

 All of our adoptions are currently done outside and at a safe distance to comply with COVID-19 guidance. All paperwork and payments are carried out virtually. If you require several meet and greets with a dog prior to adoption, these are currently very difficult to arrange but please do contact us and we will try to accommodate this.

Due to the increased costs to dog transportation caused by Brexit, our adoption donation must increase to £450 for applications received on or after 20/09/2021. A breakdown of the costs associated with preparing a dog for transport are detailed below-

Vaccinations (Rabies, DHPP, Leptospirosis)- £30

Flea and Worming- £15

Spay/Neuter (if old enough and with advice from a vet)- £50

Microchip and Registration- £20

European Pet Passport- £10

Internal transport in Bosnia- £63

Vet Inspection, Quarantine and travel paperwork - £150

Transport from Bosnia to U.K.- £235

Import fee- £8

Please note, this is a donation towards the costs associated with preparing the dog for travel to the U.K. and it does not cover the entire cost from rescue to rehome. All dogs adopted will be vaccinated for DHPP, Leptospirosis and Rabies, be microchipped and registered, have a pet passport and be spayed/neutered if old enough. If you are adopting a dog too young to be spayed/neutered, this must be done by yourselves with the advice of a vet. 

Fetcher Dog offers lifetime rescue backup, so if at any point you have a change of circumstance, we will take the dog back.
