So you'd like to adopt a Pound Hound...

As a preliminary step to adopting one of our Poundies, we require you to fill out an adoption application form. The questions in the adoption form are necessary for us to get a better insight into you and your family and to determine whether the dog you have applied for would best match your needs. If your application is approved to go to the next step, we will phone you to arrange this.

We will only match a dog to a home that will best meet its needs and personality - you are not automatically guaranteed a specific dog just because you apply for it. Please do not be offended if your application for a particular dog is not approved - these dogs have already had a rough start so it's really important to us that we get it right for them this time around. If you aren't willing to let your dog hang out with you and sleep in the house, we probably aren't the rescue for you. Around here, dogs are family and we expect that they would be treated as such. No being banished to a life outside on their own, and definitely no being chained up, so a fully fenced section is a must.

Every one of our Poundies is vet checked, vaccinated, treated for fleas and worms, microchipped, registered with WDC and desexed (no exceptions) before heading off to their new home. We ask our adopters for a fee of $285 to help towards these costs.

If you would like to adopt any of our dogs, please click on the apply to adopt button in their profile and fill in the form.

Please Note: A check of your history with Animal Control is a compulsory part of our adoption criteria.
