The Adoption Process

Stage One – Submitting an interest form

All dogs available for adoption will have been assessed by the One Paw Team to establish the kind of home they would be most suited to, depending on their temperament and needs.

Once you have seen the dog you would like to adopt, fill out the interest form.

We will then process your application and if we feel you are a suitable match, we will get in touch to discuss your application further.

A meet with the dog will then be arranged.  This will usually take place at the foster home, or on neutral groud such as a park close to the foster home. 

a Reservation Fee would then be paid to reserve the dog pending a Home Check.


Stage Two – Successful home-check

The One Paw Team will arrange for someone to visit the applicant's house to complete a Home Check to ensure the property provides a suitable and safe environment for the dog.

The garden will be checked thoroughly to ensure there is no possible means of escape.  If any areas are identified as a risk, the applicant will be given a reasonable amount of time to make the garden fully secure.

Stage Three – Payment and paper work

Once the adoption has been confirmed, the Adoption Contract will need to be completed and signed by the applicant.

The adoption fee will need to be made by Bank Transfer.
The deposit previously paid will be deducted from the final amount of adoption fee

The adoption fee will need to be paid in full before the dog can be collected.

The adoption fee is used towards the cost of travel, vets fees, and other costs accrued whilst in foster; these costs are usually more than the adoption donation.

All our One Paws are vaccinated, microchipped, fully treated for fleas and worms.

Adults will be neutered whilst puppies will be done as soon as possible, following vetinary advice.


One Paw Adoption Fees:

UK and Romanian Dogs: £350
£400 for puppies under 6 months old
Dogs from China: £1,500

Due to the high costs involved in rescuing dogs from the China Meat Trade the adoption fee has increased to £1,500

This amount will be used for the cost of flights, paperwork and blood tests together with transport from the Airport in Paris to the UK.
