How rehoming works
Thank you for your interest in Puff, who is based
at Ballymena (N.Ireland). Please note this is not a
reservation on this dog. To start the rehoming process you will
need to go to a rehoming centre for a quick chat. Please find
information below about what to expect during the rehoming
process. We hope to see you soon.
The average time between visiting a Rehoming Centre and taking your
new pet home is just eight days. Every circumstance is different but
this brief guide lets you know what you will experience when you decide
to rehome a dog from us.
The rehoming centre is your gateway to finding your new pet pooch.
When you arrive at the centre you will be greeted in reception by a
During this first visit we will take a few details from you so we
know what you are looking for. You will be able to visit the dogs and
we'll advise you on how to find the right dog for your circumstance and
that your circumstances will work for the dog too.
We would like you to get to know your chosen dog before you take him
home so, if you have any other dogs or family members, you may need to
bring them along for a further visit to ensure the whole family is happy
with the decision.
The fee for rehoming a dog is £130 (£110 in Ballymena due
to extra dog licence fees), but every dog is vet checked,
microchipped, and neutered as well as a very cool Dogs Trust lead and
collar - so we think it's a good deal!
On rehoming your new dog from Dogs Trust you will receive 4 weeks'
free insurance from our partner Petplan, this covers your dog for any
unexpected illnesses and injuries, for further details and to activate
your 4 weeks' free trial visit the Petplan website.
So now you are ready to take your new pal home, just one more step
which is a pre-adoption talk. This ensures you are aware of the
responsibilities of dog ownership and reminds you that we are always
here when you need us!
