FOSTERING & ADOPTING

ADOPTING

 

If you have decided that you want to adopt a furbaby you will need a home check. This involves a volunteer home checker coming to visit you in your home and asking you some questions, looking at your garden to ensure it's secure and safe. This will be arranged between you and the checker, please remember the checker is a volunteer and will need to arrange the check when they are available, as many have family and job commitments. It may take a week or so to sort your home check out.

After your home check, your form will be processed and the main admin will look through it to check that everything is okay for you to adopt and advise if you pass.

You will be contacted by either text message, email or a phone call, by one of the home check coordinators with the outcome of your home check.

We ask that you comment on a suitable dog on our Facebook page and ask to be added to their file, or email us on angelshomechecks@gmail.com to ask to be added to a file.

When a dog is ready for adoption the main admin will look through all the forms of those on the dog's file and decide who best meets the needs of the dog. That person/family will be contacted and invited to meet the dog in their foster home with a view to adopt. This discussion will be made via messenger on Facebook, as the fosterer and admin can be in the conversation to answer any questions you may have and discuss the needs of the dog. If you are not on Facebook or familiar with Facebook messenger we will contact you by telephone.

WE ARE IN NEED OF FOSTERERS, IF YOU WOULD LIKE TO BE CONSIDERED PLEASE READ THE INFORMATION BELOW

THINGS TO CONSIDER TO HELP YOU DECIDE IF FOSTERING IS RIGHT FOR YOU:

  • Do you have the time & commitment a dog in your home requires?

  • Are all your family members happy to have a dog? (even family that visit often, are they supportive?)

  • If you live alone and there was an emergency/had an appointment/were ill, is there a close friend or family member who would be happy to step in and care for the dog temporarily? Is that person able to spend time with the dog with you so they are familiar with them if they need to come in alone to help the dog? 

  • What are you looking to gain from the experience?

  • Children are they over 10yrs?

  • Are you able to travel to Lower Kilburn (Derby) or Sutton in Ashfield to pick up the foster dogs?

  • Are you capable of helping the dog with training, vets visits, socialisation etc?

  • Do you follow positive training methods (no smacking, shouting etc)

  • Can you treat the dog like a member of your family, include them in activities, love the dog etc?

  • Can you afford another mouth to feed? 

  • Do you feel you can deal with any unexpected issues that might arise, such as behavioural problems or illness after consulting the rescue? 

  • Are there places nearby to walk the dog?

  • Can you transport them to a vet? The dog may need neutering/spaying or other surgery, which means early morning runs to the vet and collecting later in the day, are you able to do this?

  • Can you help promote the dogs by taking pictures, keeping the rescue regularly informed on the dog’s progress? 

  • Are you able to use the message facility on facebook efficiently to contact members of the admin team as necessary?
