Frequently Asked Questions

Do you have a centre I can come and see the dogs in?
No. Dogs in Distress (DID) uses a network of fosterers who offer short-term homes to the dogs that we rescue. We rely on our fosterers to provide a safe and caring environment for our dogs. Foster based care is particularly important and beneficial as our fosterers can provide great insight into the dogs personality and the kind of home he will be best suited to.

I've seen a dog I would love to adopt, what do I do?

Great! The next step is to fill in the adoption application form and we will be back in touch with you. You can find the online form here..Adoption Application Form.

Please remember that Dogs in Distress is run solely by volunteers, many of whom have full time jobs, so please be patient in awaiting a response to your form.

Can I adopt a dog I have been fostering?
Of course. Many of our fosters have become ‘failed fosterers’ and have gone on to adopt their foster dog. If you are fostering a dog and decide you want to adopt just get in touch and we will go through the procedure.

Once your application form has been received and accepted we will be in touch to organise an introduction to the dog you wish to adopt.
