Once you have chosen a dog please complete the online application form.

3) We contact you, if your chosen dog is suitable for you

If your chosen dog is a suitable match, we will contact you to arrange an introduction. If you have not heard from us within 7 days, you are welcome to contact us by email to find out how your application is going.

4) Introduction

Your chosen dog will need to meet all members of the household,  including any canine companions. Some dogs will require you to meet with them several times to ensure we have matched you with the right dog.

5) Home visit

If your introductions are successful, you will be required to complete a Booking Form. You will be informed of the set donation for your chosen dog and be given the number of two home checkers in your area.

You will be able to purchase food and accessories for your new dog in the Pet Shop at Foal Farm.

7) Enjoy your dog

Having a dog should be a rewarding and joyful experience. Some dogs may need time, patience and training for their new home but other dogs settle straight in! If you have any problems, please contact the Dog Team at Foal Farm for advice.  We are here for the rest of your Foal dog’s life, if you need us.
