Steps to Adoption

2. Complete the adoption application

Complete an adoption application for the dog you are interested in. Mention any other dogs you are interested in and we’ll contact you within 1 week to continue the process. Please note we are very busy, please don’t complete another application if you don’t hear from us, we will be in touch soon!

3. Home check and telephone assessment

We will arrange a home check and a telephone assessment before we reserve a dog. This is imperative to confirm which dogs would be most suitable for your home environment. Once we receive feedback from the home checker, we can confirm the suitability of the dog you have chosen on our website or alternatively we can help you to choose a different dog.

4. Pay adoption fee and reserve your dog

The adoption fee for one of our dogs is £400 which covers essentials such as the pet passport, neutering, vaccinations, blood tests, worm and flea treatments, chip, passport preparation, and transportation fee. You can pay the adoption fee online via credit or debit card, bank transfer, PayPal or cheque. Once we receive the adoption fee, we will reserve your dog. We arrange the transportation with HOPE4PAWS Pet Transport on your behalf to ensure the process is smooth and as stress-free as possible for you.

5. Contract

We ask that you sign our Adoption Contract. As part of this contract, ROLDA offers a lifetime of back-up and support for your dog. If for any reason the dog needs to be rehomed we must be involved.

6. Resting period then onwards journey or collection

Once the dog arrives in the UK, he or she is brought directly to the adopter’s home. There is a 48 hour ‘resting’ period where your dog needs to remain at your home, which allows UK inspectors to visit should they decide to.

This is our favourite part: The happily ever after!
