How much does it cost to adopt a dog?

Our fee for adopting an adult dog is £250 in England, Wales and Scotland, and £237.50 in Northern Ireland (standard fee minus the £12.50 dog licence fee that adopters need to pay to council). Every dog we rehome is vaccinated, microchipped and neutered (or we’ll give you a neutering voucher if they haven't yet been neutered). We'll also give you a new Dogs Trust lead and collar, starter pack of food, and 4 weeks’ free insurance from our partner Petplan.

Our fee for adopting a puppy is £310, this includes the £250 rehoming fee and a £60 Dog School fee, £297.50 in Northern Ireland. Training is an essential part of being a responsible dog owner, so we only rehome dogs under six months to adopters who are willing to attend a four week Dog School course. Our Dog School classes help puppies learn key life skills and teach owners the basic training techniques they need to create a strong bond with their new family member.

All the dogs in our care are thoroughly assessed by our behaviour experts to determine their ideal home. Some will be able to live with children, and some won’t.

All the dogs in our care are thoroughly assessed by our behaviour experts to determine their ideal home. Some will be able to live with another dog, and some won’t.

If we match you with a dog, we’ll ask you to bring your other dog to the rehoming centre for them to meet, so we can be sure that they will be happy to live together.

We’ll be in touch within seven days of receiving your application and start looking for a great match for you.

We’ll keep your application open for three months. If for some reason we don’t find the right dog in that time, you can reapply, and we’ll keep looking.

Why might my adoption application be turned down?

We pride ourselves on our thorough behaviour and veterinary assessments that help us match each dog to the right person. We rehome to all different types of homes, from houses to narrow boats. It just depends on the needs of the individual dog.

We will be honest if we don't feel your circ*mstances are right to adopt a dog. Otherwise, we’d be doing a disservice to ourselves, our dogs and to you. It doesn’t mean you won’t be able to adopt from us in the future if your situation changes.
