Rescue placements ONLY needed for pound dogs. Pound dogs can not be homed to the public.

Please read our policies before you offer a rescue placement for any dog.


Rescues must adhere to the following:

* All dogs must be properly assessed before being rehomed or placed into foster care.
* Pound dogs must never be placed directly into foster homes where there are resident or visiting children.
* Rescues must have a 'no kill' policy (unless advised on medical grounds by a veterinary surgeon).
* All dogs must be vaccinated and microchipped.
* All dogs must be neutered before the date of adoption, with the exception of puppies, or unless advised by a veterinary surgeon on medical grounds. If the dog is too young or the surgery could not be carried out prior to adoption (in the case of bitches who have been in season too recently) a contract must be signed by the adopter to confirm the dog will be neutered as soon as applicable (as advised by a veterinary surgeon). The rescue must then undertake follow up checks to confirm the dog has been neutered. Bitches must never be rehomed whilst in season.
* Thorough home checks must be carried out on all potential homes prior to the date of adoption.
* The rescue must offer a lifetime 'back up' guarantee for all dogs, i.e. take back any dog that must, regardless of circumstances, be rehomed.


IF YOU ARE A NEW RESCUE TO US WE REQUIRE THE FOLLOWING FROM YOU IF YOU TAKE A DOG FROM US:

Proof of vaccinations, microchipping and neutering.

Please do not offer a placement for any dog unless you are prepared to do this.


If you are a rescue and can help please email us at: [email protected]

Alternatively, reply to individual threads on the forum or contact us via the ALUK Facebook page.


You do NOT have to be a member to submit a message on this forum but please be aware your post will not be visible to the public until it is approved by an Animal Lifeline UK staff member.
