From the 19th of July 2021 the government will be lifting covid - 19 restrictions. However, the Lancashire East Branch will still be following social distancing guidance & asking that masks are still worn within our centre. We will be keeping to our appointment only system & wherever possible continuing to follow the virtual process.

We still remain closed to the general public but will be operating an appointment system for dog meets & collection of dogs once you have been matched with a pet, had a virtual home visit & cleared for adoption. Please DO NOT attend site without a booked appointment as we will be unable to allow you access.

All animals available for adoption will be advertised on our website and social media accounts, if there is an animal which you are interested in adopting we ask that you contact us by phone on 01254 231118 so that we can discuss if the dog you have chosen is the right match & send you an application form. If you are unable to complete a form on line then please phone the centre for help & advice.

Once we have received an application form that looks to be a good match for one of our dogs that person will be contacted to arrange for them to send us photos & videos of their home & garden.

Once received the photos & videos will be reviewed & if all is well an appointment will be made for you to come to the centre to meet the dog you have chosen (please note you may be asked to do several meets depending on the dog chosen & their needs)

Once everyone is happy that the match is a good one adoption paperwork will be emailed to you for completion & a card payment taken for the adoption fee. (if you are unable to complete paperwork on line then please make the reception staff aware of this so they can help you).

Once payment is received another appointment will be made for you to come along & collect your new family member.

Please be patient & we ask for your understanding as not all circumstances can be catered for under the current procedure, some situations will still need an actual home visit which we are still currently unable to do & we may ask you to get back in touch with u at a later date. 

The safety of our staff, volunteers & supporters is paramount.

Adoption Procedure

We are always trying to find the right home for the right animals. 

 

In order to do this, we put checks in place to make sure that we are making the right match between animal and family. This includes things such as a home visit, family visits to the centre and dog-to-dog meetups (if applicable).

 

Potential adopters may have to meet additional criteria if we have any special cases where animals need extra care or attention.
