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.

Due to current restrictions, I can't go to my forever home just yet, but you can contact the rehoming centre to register your interest. When restrictions ease, and if we're a suitable match, you will be able to discuss me in more detail with my carers at the centre. your interest in me! applying to adopt me, click

Type of home needed

Kiko is looking for a lovely, quiet, adult-only home she can call her own. She can become hyper-vigilant and distressed with unpredictable movements and busy surroundings. For this reason, we would recommend a home that has few unannounced visitors, ideally situated in a rural location away from the everyday hustle and bustle. She'll need to be the only pet in the home but would benefit significantly from calm, confident walking buddies. This lovely lady would be best suited to a single-person household. However, we will consider a maximum of two adults in the home should the circumstances fit Kiko's needs. She is doing exceptionally well with her settle training programme and could potentially be left for short periods, once she's settled in her new home. Kiko will need an owner who is comfortable with her staying on a lead and wearing a muzzle when out in public. This clever girl has already been trained to wear a muzzle when she's out and about. The positive, reward-based approach we have taken with this training, means she sees this as no different from having her harness and lead put on. Being an outside kinda girl, Kiko will need a good-size, secure garden with six-foot fencing as a minimum requirement. Here, she'll be able to run around with her toys, explore and play safely off-lead.

More about me

Beautiful Kiko is one of the most intelligent dogs and quickest learners we have here at the centre. She thrives on her training and is always eager to share playtime and please her humans. However, Kiko can get a little overwhelmed with the big wide world at times and would like a calm, patient owner who can gradually introduce her to new surroundings. Although Kiko can appear to be a little stern on first appearances, she is actually an extremely sensitive young lady. If you have the patience to allow Kiko to get to know you at her own pace, you'll soon come to realise that this gorgeous girl has a huge heart and just wants to be with you. Once she knows you, Kiko likes to form a strong bond, quickly evolving into your closest, most loyal and loving companion...guaranteed!

 

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 Kiko, who is based at Salisbury (Wiltshire). 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.
