The Adoption Process

To see the dogs currently available for adoption, please check out the highlights in our instragram page, found here.

We use a three step process; Adoption Form, Phone Call and Home Check to decide whether potential adopters are the right fit for a Lucky’s dog and the steps are equally important.

Adoption Form

Give as much information as possible on the form. Forms that are incomplete or lack thorough answers will not be considered until more information is added. It is our first impression of you and your lifestyle. We like to know about your home, your walks and more importantly about you so that we can ensure our dogs will fit into your day to day life.

Phone call

If your questionnaire is taken to the next step you will receive an email from us with a list of areas to research and a date and time is arranged for your phone call. This takes approx. an 1-1.5 hours. We run through your form to ensure we have all the correct information and talk through typical training and behaviour scenarios that can occur with a dog. This is your chance to shine and show us what you know! It also gives you the opportunity to ask us any questions you may have about our process and the dogs you may be interested in.

Home check

If you are successful in the phone call, we will then carry out a home check. This gives us the opportunity to meet you (and any other family members who live in your home) and you to meet us, our main priority is to make sure your home and garden is safe for a dog and to run through any final questions we might have.

If your home check is unsuccessful you will receive feedback as to why, however If successful, we will let you know and work with you to find a rescue to match you and your lifestyle!
