Homing Requirements

At ABRAR, as with many rescues, we have re-homing prerequisites. These are specifically intended to ensure the dogs we re-home are going into an environment where they will be safe and cared for. The requirements also ensure that the dog is suited to the new owners, especially where there are children or other pets in the home.

All adoptions will be subject to a home check to ensure the following requirements are met:

Children
Sadly, not all dogs are child friendly and able to be re-homed with children. Some dogs might only suitable for homes with children above a certain age, not because they are unfriendly, indeed usually it is for the opposite reason, they are sometimes over friendly, so small children can be knocked over and hurt. If you have children at home or visiting on a regular basis, please ensure you check the dogs’ profile for suitability.

Other Pets
Not all dogs are cat and bunny friendly. Some dogs would not happily share a home with another dog. This information will be included in the dogs’ profile, so do check them. The profiles are intended to protect the dog and and other resident pets.
If you have other resident dogs in your household, these must be neutered/spayed before you can be apply to adopt one of our rescue dogs. We will not re-home any of our dogs with other ‘intact’ dogs.

Outside Space
All our dogs must have direct access to a secure, attached, outside space. This is considered necessary for the dogs welfare and safety. It does not need to be a huge area, but it must be suitable for the size and breed of the dog you are thinking of adopting.

Lifestyle
Matching a dog to your lifestyle is critical to a successful adoption. When it comes to exercise, different dogs have different needs, but they all need be taken for a walk. Some dogs are quite happy to have a quick run around the door mat and chase the odd ball, weather permitting. Others need lots of physical exercise come rain or shine. Please be realistic about the amount of exercise you can provide as selecting the wrong dog can cause misery for both dog and owner, and can result in the dog being returned to the rescue.

Having a full time day job may not necessarily exclude you from adopting, but a dog must not be left unattended for any longer than 4 hours. Remember that these are rescue dogs and many come with ‘baggage’. Some may suffer from separation anxiety and if they are to build bonds with their adoptive owners, it can be damaging for them to be left alone for hours on end. Some may also be destructive if left alone for too long.
