Adopting A Dog
If you would like to apply to adopt a Just Whippets Rescue whippet, please fill in the online application form using the link on the righthand side of this page indicating which whippet you believe is the perfect match for you.
If you are considering adopting a dog, we strongly recommend you read this first.
There may be some exceptional circumstances or homes that don’t quite fulfil all our criteria below. The Charity Trustees will consider these on an individual basis. Their decision is final.
Many of the dogs we re home are from families where they are being left for long periods due to work commitments.
WE DO NOT REHOME TO PEOPLE WORKING FULL TIME. We expect the dog NOT to be left alone for longer than 4 hours per day. We do not consider a small lunch time visit, neighbours popping in, or a dog walker sufficient.
When we receive your completed application form a home check will be arranged to meet all members of your household. Our home checker will sit and talk to you to ascertain what you are able to offer a dog.
Our home checker will take a good look at your garden, to make sure it is a safe environment for a dog. So if you have any fencing that needs repairing or replacing, please have this done before applying for dog.
Please remember no rescue dog is perfect, most dogs will have “baggage” which can be anything from training issues to separation anxiety. Normally all that is needed is time, patience and often a good training class to turn your dog around. You will get back ten fold what you put in.
If you are about to move house then we will not re home a dog to you until you have moved and we have home checked your new house.
If you have had a home check and have completed our Adoption Application Form, you will then be on our waiting list. Rescue dogs will only be offered to homes that are on our waiting list.
FROM THE MOMENT YOU SIGN THE ADOPTION CONTRACT YOUR ADOPTED DOG AND ALL FINANCIAL COSTS RELATED TO YOUR DOG WILL BE YOUR RESPONSIBILITY. We pass on all information from the previous owner, this includes medical conditions. We cannot be held responsible if a problem is not reported prior to rehoming.
We strongly recommend you insure your dog. Each Adopted dog comes with 4 weeks free Petplan Cover. Petplan will donate 10% of your premium to Just Whippets Rescue when you take out a Policy quoting Petplan Reference Number 1300061325.
Please note that we do not home dogs outside of England, Scotland and Wales.
