If you are interested in adopting a dog that does not say it can be homed with a cat and wish us to cat test please let us know and we will be happy to do this.

27-6-19 - Apache is a happy, curious boy that walks on a lead, He is very independent and active. He could easily live his days as an only dog due to his high confidence levels although he will need some extra time and patience to settle into the home and learn housetraining and other such home skills. Apachie is very handsome and does pull a little on the lead so he will need training and practice to help him get it right so that walkies are a pleasure. He is lame on his back left leg so is on pain killers and rest at the moment.  He has a passport.

Everyone here at the centre loves Apache. We all stop and say hello to him as we walk by, and he always greets us with a massive smile and a tail wag. What we would love more would be to see his wagging tail from behind as he walks away with his new family. Apache is a very handsome, well mannered gent. He loves to have some attention and a nice fuss made of him.
He does like other dogs, and was kennelled alongside a labradoodle when on my section, and they got on very well! He can however be an only dog, so if you don’t have another dog you can also apply for him. Apache does walk on a lead and he loves to go on walks to have a look around and enjoy the sniffs. He can be a little strong on the lead when he gets too excited, but this can easily be worked on. Apache is currently on kennel rest here with us as he has bad knees and because of this he does only need short walks every so often, just to ensure no further damage is done. He is a very attentive and loving dog awaiting his forever home, so please apply for this fantastic boy as he really deserves this!

Apache is a very popular and happy dog. He is always happy to see everyone and everyone is happy to see him to. He gets on well with all other dogs and loves playing but he is quite bouncy as he plays or gets excited to see you, so I would home him with dogs his own size.
Apache does walk on a lead and he loves to go on walks to meet people, dogs and have a sniff although he can be quite strong to pull, so training to walk next to you would help. Apache is on pain relief here for his bad knees and may require life long pain medication so that's something that needs to be considered when adopting him.  Because of this because of this Apache only needs short walks and he’s also on a diet to help manage his weight as he is a little heavy and being lighter with help his knees and health long term. He does like his food however, so he will try to eat others food given half a chance!.
Apache is a very attentive and loving dog waiting patently for his forever home, so please please, come and meet this fantastic boy as he really deserves this!

This lovely boy has been in foster for a week.  He is fully clean in the house, loves his fur foster sisters, travels beautifully in the car, great with children and is responding well to training having perfected his sit, stay and down. He does still pull a little on the lead but we are working on it. Somebody is going to be very lucky to take this teddy bear home.

The adoption fee for an adult dog (6 months and over) is £220 and for a puppy is £250, However if the dog has a passport you will be given this when you adopt and we ask for a further £20 to help us buy a passport for another dog.
Large breed dogs over 25kg cost us considerably more  to spay and neuter so if you are adopting a large breed dog we would be very grateful of an extra suggested donation of £10 towards this increased cost to help us keep running.
You will find a break down of what the adoption fee covers under our Adoption Procedures (see link below) If your application is successful you will be home checked and you, all members of your family and any dog(s) who will be living with the dog MUST come to meet the dog you want to adopt. All our dogs are micro-chipped, have had at least their first inoculation and are spayed/neutered unless there is a medical reason for not doing so. You must have a safe means of transporting the dog home in a crate or if this is not possible please discuss with Many Tears or the Fosterer when your application is being processed.

In certain circumstances and in particular when it is one of our long term stayers or a dog who is difficult to home we may transport it down the M4 as far as Reading if the adopter is not able to travel for a valid reason. This will only happen on a Sunday and will be part of our Foster Run where we transport dogs to their foster homes. There will be and additional charge of £20 transport fee for this and the adopter must be able to travel to the allocated service station. Please think very carefully before asking for a dog to be transported as if you already have a dog there is no guarantee they will get along with the new dog or vice versa and you will need to be able to hold on to the dog until the following week and meet the van again if you wish to return the dog.

Please read our adoption procedures before applying and then complete the adoption form.
