We’ve set up new processes which include social distancing measures to help keep staff, visitors and adopters safe.

We’re now matching dogs with their new homes virtually and delivering dogs contact-free. For dogs who need more time to get to know their new family, you can now meet them at our rehoming centres by appointment and this now applies to all of our rehoming centres in England, Scotland, Northern Ireland and Wales.

Type of home needed

Meet gorgeous Sadie the German Shepherd, she is looking for a home to make her feel as special as she is! Sadie needs you to have previous experiance of rescue dogs to help her become the best dog she can be. She will need patient owners to take her for who she is initally and work along side the behaviour team on her quirks. Our canine carers say she loves to use her nose, play swap games with squeaky toys and to be kept busy with enrichment. Sadie is a lovely girl once she knows you and deserves a chance to find her forever home. Sadie finds it scary meeting new people so needs you to commite to multiple visits to the Center so you can get to know each other before she comes home.

More about me

Three-year-old Sadie cannot live with any more than two people and needs an adult only home with no visiting children or other pets. Sadie has mild hip dysplasia and some spondylosis, she needs a family who can bare this in mind for her future. She need to be muzzled and on lead whilst out and about on quiet walks where she wont see many people or dogs. She's asking for minimal to no visitors in the home to help her settle and will need you to have personal experience of rescue dogs to help her become the best dog she can be. Ideally she would live with a family who have had German Shepherds before. She travels well but will need her leaving hours to be built up slowly.

 

During these uncertain times, whilst we have had to unfortunately close our rehoming centres to the public, we’d like to reassure you that our wonderful staff will continue to provide the best possible care for our dogs. We are now able to start the search for new homes for a small number of our awesome dogs. This will really help us to support even more dogs who are most at risk of being put to sleep as a result of this crisis. We have been overwhelmed by your offers of support, and we wouldn’t be able to do any of this without your help. We’d like to take this opportunity to say a big thank you to those individuals, who are doing everything they can to make sure our dogs get fed, walked, looked after and, as soon as we are able, finding them their forever home. We appreciate you thinking of us at what is a difficult time for all. If you would like to make a donation to support whilst we continue looking after the dogs in our care you can do so here...

How rehoming works

Thank you for your interest in Sadie, who is based at Basildon (Essex). Please note this is not a reservation on this dog. If you think you could be a good match give us a call on the number below

Our rehoming process is a bit different at the moment! We’re now matching dogs with their new families virtually and delivering dogs to their new homes, with social distancing measures in place to help keep staff and adopters safe. For dogs who need more time to get to know their new family, you can come and meet them at our rehoming centres by appointment. We can’t register interest for dogs who aren’t available for rehoming. More info about how our new rehoming process works below.

When you rehome a dog, we’ll give you your welcome bag, which includes a new collar and lead, and our dog care handbook with microchip and insurance details. Plus, to help your new addition settle in we’ll give you a 2kg bag of Wainwright’s dry dog food, courtesy of the Pets at Home VIP Club, unless they have been fed on a different food for dietary or veterinary reasons.
