Adopt A Staffie
We’re a small group of Volunteers who shelter and care for Staffordshire Bull Terriers and actively seek to rehome dogs who come into our care.

Why Adopt

A Staffie From Us?

We are a very small charity, taking in only a handful of dogs at a time. As often as we can, we
like the dogs to remain in their own homes until a new home is found for them. At times that
isn’t possible and we may move dogs to foster homes.

We spend time getting to know the dogs in our care. If they are in a home, we aim to visit
them regularly to get to know them so that we can understand the sort of home that would
suit them best.

The

Adoption Process

All potential new homes will have an informal home-check to look at things like:

1. Your position near to busy / fast roads.
2. Your garden/property security for a dog.
3. Other animals at your home.
4. Other family members, if relevant.
5. Proof of identification.
6. Detailing follow up support you would receive from us
7. Answering any questions that you may have.
8. If the home-check is successful, you are invited to meet the dog(s).
9. If you choose to continue, the adoption agreement form is signed and the donation taken.

10. You become fully responsible for caring for the dog and agree to continue to do so. Please note – SRS continues to reserve the right to visit the dog at mutually convenient times. If you are in rented accommodation, a letter of confirmation from the landlord regarding pets at the property will be required. If you are in local authority housing we will need to see a copy of the tenancy agreement. Please have these available for the home check.
11. A follow-up visit is done after an agreed time has passed. This can be repeated at any time. Support is always available for any issues or questions you have post-adoption.

When you enquire about adopting a dog from us, after an initial chat on the phone a volunteer in your area will arrange to come round and do a home visit. This is very informal . The rescue needs to check that you have an enclosed garden and see where the dog will sleep. It is good to meet all family members in person and is also a good opportunity for you to ask questions.

If you have never had a dog before or just not at the moment, we may bring one of our own dogs round for you to meet a bouncy, full of life, cheeky Staffie.

The visit helps us decide what sort of dog is right for you, for example: if you have young children in your immediate or extended family or cats and other dogs we will only put a dog in your home that is used to children, cats and other dogs. If you already have a dog in residence we need to assess him/her to see if we think they will accept another dog into the household.

We ask for an £100 donation. This helps to cover the cost of transporting, vaccinating, neutering/spaying, microchipping etc.
