Dog and Puppy Adoption in the UK
How do I adopt a dog or puppy and what is the process?
No matter where you are in the UK, if your details are suitable for the requirements of the dog, we will arrange a home check for the dogs security and future welfare.
If this is passed we make arrangements for you to meet the dog and hopefully re-home her or him. The time limit on this process varies.
We will ask for a one off donation per dog. The donation may be more for some dogs and puppies under one year.
This helps towards (but does not usually fully cover) any costs of neutering, veterinary treatments, vaccinations, flea and worm treatments and microchipping (where necessary).
We cannot guarantee that these will have been done before you take your new pet away. We will advise you if that is the case.

All our dogs are examined by a qualified vet. From time to time, as with any pets, matters will come to light after examination and adoption about which we had no knowledge, could not have anticipated or have any control of.
We therefore cannot be responsible for anything arising after adoption of which we were not previously aware Pro Dogs Direct is there for help and support throughout the dog’s life.
Pro Dogs Direct is run mainly by volunteers who freely give their time to help dogs find new forever loving homes. Most of our volunteers also fit jobs, families and other commitments into their busy days. Our aim is to place each dog in the best possible home and not on a first come first served basis.
It is our policy to neuter all dogs, where possible, on homing unless there are medical reasons for not doing so.
Puppies are followed up and when old enough their owners are offered help with neutering. Of course as a rescue we do not want unwanted litters but neutering is also beneficial to the dog for health reasons in later life.
Our network of volunteers for transporting and fostering dogs is invaluable, as are our volunteer home checkers who meet prospective new owners in their homes to talk about the dog and its future care and training.
