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.

10-10-19 Ruby  is a very lovely Cocker Spaniel. She can be a little nervous when she first meets you but once she knows you shes a lovely cuddle monster. Ruby is very quirky and loves a nice bit of fuss and attention. She is picky with other dogs so we are looking to home her as an only old dog as she doesn't life them to invade her space. Ruby is looking for an adult only home where she can learn all about love and the new skills she will need to know like house training and sunbathing in the sunny spot on the floor.   This make take a little longer as she will be an only dog but with time, love and patience she will get there.

12-11-19 UPDATE
 Ruby has been returned to us after a short adoption as Ruby couldn't settle in the new home. The adopter felt they did not have the right experience to help Ruby come out of her shell and so it was decided it would be best for Ruby to find a more experienced home. One minute Ruby will be totally fine one minute and then very on edge the next. When Ruby is on edge she will growl and is very cautious of her back end. Ruby will need an adult only home and someone with infinite time and patience to give her the support she needs.

PLEASE NOTE: We nearly always home dogs who have come from breeders where there is ALREADY A RESIDENT DOG living in the house. They have usually never lived in a house before and are only used to canine company. They usually get their confidence and learn faster with another dog to copy from. This also helps with house training and learning how to walk on a lead. They will make lovely pets but do need a lot of love, time and patience. If the ex breeding dog you are interested in can be an only dog it will say so in its write up. Please read our information on ADOPTING EX-BREEDING DOGS before you apply.

ADOPTION DETAILS
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.
