Snetterton celebrates first dogs adopted in 2021

Although we’re only two weeks into the New Year, 2021 has already been quite a year! To spread some much needed positivity, we’ve put together this blog full of happy adoption stories from this year so far.

Within the first two weeks of 2021, 7 dogs have been officially adopted. Due to the current lockdown restrictions, we have used Handover at Home to safely deliver dogs to their new families. This means our team match dogs to their adopters virtually, keeping the process contact free. Then, once all the paperwork and checks are complete – it’s home time.


Our very first dog to be rehomed this year was big, bouncy girl Brooklyn. She first arrived at the centre in December and it didn’t take long before she stole the hearts of her carers. Brooklyn loves toys, games, fuss, training, walks, dogs and people – she just loves life in general! She was soon matched with her adopters and was dropped off on 2nd January. We have since caught up with her adopters and she is settling in really well


Beautiful boy Bonzo was officially adopted on 4th January by a staff member who fell in love with him whilst he kept her company on reception. Bonzo is 14 years old and was in need of some TLC when he first arrived. After some much needed dental work, a good bath and the right medication – Bonzo is a much happier, healthier boy. He now has a wonderful jumper collection and is a much loved part of the family.


Lovely lad Rupert was adopted through Handover at Home on 11th January as we were confident he would adapt well to his new home. Rupert is a fun, friendly boy who is full of personality. Rupert first came to the centre in December, so he enjoyed a lovely Christmas with his carers before soon jetting off to his new home. He certainly looks pleased to be adopted.


Little live wire Lola went to her forever home on 14th January after spending just two weeks at the centre. In the short time she was with us, Lola made some great bonds and was a delight to spend time with. She was in need of adopters who can give her all the love and attention she deserves. We wish Lola and her adopters all the best.

As well as the dogs above, young spaniel Hunter, lively Kermit and sweet Amber have also found their forever homes. Not a bad start to the year!
