DSPCA Adoption Process
If you think that there is a suitable dog for you and your family, please speak to one of the adoption consultants and they can introduce you to your potential new family pet.
After you speak to an adoption consultant and have met your potential new family pet, you will then be asked to complete a Dog Adoption Application Form.
*It is a requirement that every member of the family meets the dog, ie. all children and adults living in the home.
If you have an existing dog, the adoption consultants will make arrangements for a dog compatibility meet here in the shelter. It is important that they like each other too!
When all of the above is in order, your home check will be booked in and carried out by a DSPCA representative. Homes checks are carried out on Monday and Wednesday evenings only.
Once your home check has been completed, the DSPCA will make an appointment with you to adopt. Adoption Seminars take place on TUESDAY & THURSDAY only at 3.00pm. They cannot accommodate adoptions outside of these times because they are busy finding homes for the other wonderful animals in their care!
