Adoption Procedure

We can now allow applications from all over England, Scotland and Wales.

• The non-refundable adoption fee is currently £525 for dogs over 18 months old – this only partially covers any veterinary treatment, food, transportation etc the dogs have received while in rescue. Cavaliers have a multitude of health problems and most that come into rescue need extensive veterinary treatment.

• The non-refundable adoption fee for puppies under 18 months old is £800.

• All of our dogs will be vaccinated, microchipped, neutered/spayed, have flea treatment and will be wormed prior to being rehomed (unless there is a medical reason why this cannot take place). They will also receive any other necessary veterinary care including dentals, heart scans etc

All adopters resident dogs must be neutered unless there is a medical reason why this cannot be carried out, we will require a letter from the applicants vet if this is the case.

• Please do not apply if you have Coronavirus symptoms or have recently tested positive.

• Once your application form has been completed and returned you will receive an email to inform you that we have received your application. If you do not receive this email please contact us: [email protected]

• If your home fits the dogs needs then you will be contacted by the application team. A telephone interview will take place if the dog is a suitable match.

• A virtual home check prior to meeting the dog will apply via WhatsApp, Facetime or Facebook Messenger- this must be undertaken within 3 days of your telephone interview. You may also be required to give references ie from your veterinarian.

• If your home check is successful you will then be offered the opportunity to meet the dog with a view to adopt. You and all members of your family will need to be present for the meet and greet which will take place outside at the foster home. Meet and greets take place no longer than 5 days from the home check. Please ensure you are wearing a face mask- if you do not have a face mask please let us know prior to the meet and greet.

• We will carry out a follow up homecheck in person as soon as its safe to do so.

• We will not hold dogs due to holidays or illness etc. Please do not submit an application form until you are ready to commit and have discussed with all family members.

• Bliss Cavalier Rescue will always be on hand to support you with any questions you may have going forwards.

• Our procedures are carried out to ensure the safety and well being of every dog that is rescued and rehomed. We will always take individual circumstances into account and are more than happy to discuss any concerns that you have via email.
