Covid-19 update: our rehoming centres aren’t open for public browsing, but we’re still rehoming and taking in dogs, with measures in place to keep staff and adopters safe. Find out more about how national Covid-19 restrictions are affecting our rehoming procedures and other activity.

Our rehoming centres aren’t open for public browsing but we’re still rehoming and taking in dogs, with new processes in place to keep staff, visitors and adopters safe.

For dogs we know will thrive straight away in their new home, we’re matching them with their new homes virtually and delivering them contact-free. Current restrictions mean we can only facilitate adoptions local to our centres and not across Countries or anywhere there are travel restrictions. We’re not able to make appointments for dogs to meet their family before going home, but we can register interest to arrange appointments when restrictions ease.

We’re currently experiencing an unprecedented amount of interest, with some dogs getting several hundred applications. Please bear with us, we’re doing everything we can to find our dogs their forever homes.

Likes

There is never a dull moment with Elsa around! Once you have joined her circle of friends she enjoys training, cuddles and playing. Elsa does have a lot of anxiety about the world, having spent a long time in kennels. Elsa is looking for a very specific set-up in her new home. Our team of trainers will be on hand to advise on how best to manage her worries around new people and around dogs.

Type of home needed

Elsa can live in a single adult house only with no other pets and would need very careful management around any potential visitors. She needs to live in a more rural environment with easy access to quiet walks in which she would not be exposed to many other people or dogs. She would also benefit from a secure private off lead area in which she can burn off some energy. She is strong on lead - so someone physically able to hold on to her and help support her with this is a real must. Potential adopters will need to visit her at the centre at least 10 times.

More about me

Elsa needs time to get to know her new family before she can go home. Due to government guidelines we can't offer meetings at the rehoming centre at the moment but we can start the process remotely with Zoom. If you are interested in applying to adopt Elsa, click on the 'come and meet me button'. Applications will close when I have found a suitable match.

 

In these unprecedented circumstances, we're doing everything we can to continue our vital work caring for thousands of stray and abandoned dogs. If you'd like to help, please make a donation. Your support means so much, now more than ever.

How rehoming works

Thank you for your interest in Elsa, who is based at Loughborough. 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. 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.
