Pre-adoption
Dog Enquiry Form

We have strict policies when re-homing our dogs to ensure the fit is right for you and our dogs/puppies. The adoption process starts after completing this enquiry form. We will then contact you to arrange a meeting with the foster family who is looking after the dog/puppy for a meet and greet with the dog or puppy that you are interested in.

For your application to be considered a property check will be completed. We will check that the following is in place. If not, the application cannot proceed.

• Shelter for your dog/puppy if it is outside during the day
• Your dog/puppy must sleep inside as part of your family

If you are renting we will need a signed acceptance from your Landlord/Agent permitting you to have pets on the property. This MUST accompany your adoption application.

reCAPTCHA is required.

Adoption Fee – $300

If your property inspection passes and the adoption approved, we ask that you make a donation of a $300 as the adoption fee. This adoption fee goes towards the dog’s costs of:

  • Worm and Flea treatments
  • De-sexing
  • Full vaccinations – based on age of dog or pup
  • Microchip
  • Vet Book

Trial and Refunds

Your dog or puppy will be on trial for 14 days.  If for any reason the adoption does not work out by the final day, we will refund your adoption fee back to you.
