Adoption Process

Stage One – Showing an Interest

Once you have seen the dog you would like to adopt, fill out the INTEREST FORM. We will then process your application and arrange a home check.

By completing the interest form, you are stating an interest in adopting through One Paw at A Time Dog Rescue. Your chosen One Paw Dog will be assessed by the One Paw Team and suited to most appropriate adoptive parent. If our One Paw Dog has already been appointed a foster family, they will be offered first refusal.

Stage Two – Successful home-check

Once the home check has been passed, we will put forward your interest to adopt. The chosen adoptive parent will be contacted to arrange a meet with the One Paw Dog. We would prefer you to visit the foster home, as the dog will be more relaxed. If you require us to bring them to you, we will require a £10 fee to cover petrol costs, this is non-refundable. If the meet and greet is successful, you will be asked to complete an adoption form where a signature will be required.

 Stage Three – Paper work

After the completion of Stage One, an Adoption Fee will be required. We would prefer paypal or cash on the day of collection.

A bank transfer two days before the meet and greet is fine. The bank transfer will be refunded if the meet and greet is not successful.

All documents will be given on the day of collection. If we don’t have the documents in our possession, we will send them to you within two weeks.

All our One Paws are vaccinated, microchipped, fully treated for fleas and worms. Adults will be neutered while puppies will be done at 12 months of age.

One Paw Adoption Fees:
Adults: £225
Puppies: £250
