Adoption Application Form (Read Adoption Terms before Completing)

Oakwood and COVID-19

Due to Government Advice, we are not booking any viewings in to see the dogs.

Our staff are prioritising the care of the dogs and so it may be a while before you hear back regarding your application.

Please be patient, our staff are processing adoptions in their free time. It may be a few weeks before you hear back from us.

Please do not attempt to visit the centre or call regarding your application as there are no staff working at the centre to take your call.

Once you submit an application, sit tight and we will be in touch.

Thank you for your understanding throughout this difficult time.



Before completing this form, please make sure you have read and agreed to our Adoption Requirements.

Our terms are not negotiable and have been put in place to protect the dogs best interests. You cannot barter with us and change the requirements.You must agree to our adoption terms you will not be able to adopt a dog from us. Please DO NOT just click to say you agree with the terms. We will require you to sign a contract to say you agree and you will waste both ours and your time if you come to view dogs and then decide you no longer agree with our terms.

Your answers to the questions on this application form are there to help us find an ideal match for your lifestyle, home and circumstances. Whether you live in a bungalow, have 3 children or work full-time. We firmly believe that everyone has something to offer a dog in their life, and that there is a perfect home waiting for every single one of our rescue dogs so please answer the questions as honestly as possible so we can help you find your ideal dog!


PLEASE do not submit an application unless you also immediately send photos of your garden. 

Half completed applications are slowing down dogs getting rehomed as the team are spending many hours trying to get the needed information and garden fencing photos.



Fencing photos: We need to see where the fencing meets the house, the entire left hand side, the entire right side, the bottom of the garden and a clear photo of the garden gate. See below for some examples - the arrows indicate where photos would need to be taken. Please attach your photos to the form or email them to [email protected]
