Dorset Dog Rescue

Rehoming dogs throughout the UK

DDR terms and conditions

These are Dorset Dog Rescue’s Terms and Conditions - please can you initial each paragraph as you read it then sign and date the document in the relevant space.

If you cannot adhere to the Terms and Conditions you will not be able to adopt one of our dogs.

1. I promise to insure my dog from the day I take it home.  I have looked into all the aspects of dog ownership and understand the responsibility.  I accept all financial and personal responsibility for owning a DDR dog.

2. I acknowledge that the dog I am adopting will be a family pet and live inside my home with the rest of the family.  I will ensure my dog is wearing an identity tag and will get he/she microchipped.  The said dog will not be chained or be living outside.

3. I understand my DDR dog may get kennel cough as incubation can take a long time and that DDR will cover this ONLY at Natterjacks.  I will be responsible for all veterinary treatment from the day of ownership.  However, DDR cover illness in first 2 weeks ONLY at Natterjacks.

4. I agree that as my new dog is a rescue dog that DDR can give me no guarantee as to the history of this animal, only the best of their knowledge.  Also, that they can give me no guarantee about any hereditary defects or unknown conditions.  I agree that DDR hold no responsibility for any future treatment for this dog.

5. From the date of the signed adoption agreement I accept full responsibility for the dog and its actions.  I realise that dogs are unpredictable and that they may chew, bite, destroy furniture and scratch and that DDR is no longer responsible for the dog now that I own it.  I must keep my adopted new dog under control at all times.

6. I must contact DDR if any behavioural/medical problems arise and accept that DDR are not responsible but will contact them to let them know and see if they can get their behaviourist to help.

7. I must not pass my dog to another rescue, company, family member or person without consent from DDR.

8. If I need to return my DDR dog for any reason or I can no longer keep it then I will only return it to DDR and understand it may take up to 6 weeks for an available foster home to be available or be rehomed from our home.

9. I understand that if I am to return my dog for any reason that there will be no refund of the donation 

10. I agree that DDR can contact me at a reasonable time by phone, email or in person to do a random check that the dog is happily settled.  I understand that if any of the Terms and Conditions are broken then DDR have the right to remove the dog from wherever it is residing.

I certify the information I have given is true and that should I be found to have given dishonest information it will result in the adoption of the dog being stopped at any time.
