Adoption Application Form

Please complete the following form if you are interested in adopting from SNDogs.

New dogs arrive into our care regularly. When this happens, the dog will be added to our website, so keep checking to see if your perfect pooch is waiting for you! Available dogs can be found here.

We are based in Swindon, Wiltshire, but we rehome dogs to families all across the UK. You must be able to travel to Swindon to collect the dog.

You might be wondering why we require certain information from you in your application form. This article explains it perfectly.

    Re-homing is subject to a successful home check and adoption fee.

    When taking a dog on trial, adopters must pay the adoption fee. This is £300 for adult dogs £400 for puppies. There are times when the fee will be altered.

    If a dog goes on trial and is returned, the people returning the dog need to email SNDogs with bank info to claim back the adoption fee.

    This will be refunded (minus a non-refundable £50 which you will have been informed of and agreed to before taking the dog on trial) as long as the dog is returned in the same condition with no injuries, signs of neglect or abuse. You must claim your refund within one month.

    Please ensure that the full donation amount is available prior to having your home check, as this avoids disappointment all round.

    After clicking 'submit' you will be redirected to a secure page to pay a £11 non-refundable admin fee. It takes a few seconds to load, so please be patient 🙂

    If you are not redirected to PayPal after completing this form, please email to let us know. You do NOT need to fill in the application form again; we will still have received your application.
