Pawfect Pals Animal Rescue

Dog Adoption Application

Note: The health and safety of our volunteers is of the utmost importance to us. If you have recently returned from overseas, have any symptoms associated with Covid-19 (fever, shortness of breath, runny nose, cough, sore throat) or have been in contact with anyone confirmed to have Covid-19, we ask that you do not apply to adopt at this time. We also ask that strict social distancing (1.5m minimum) and hygiene is adhered to at all interactions with volunteers. 

Please fill in the below adoption application if you are interested in finding a Pawfect Pal for your family.

Some things to remember….

  • The adoption process – from submitting your application, to beginning the trial – takes approximately 2 weeks, so please submit an application only if you are ready to take your new pal home within the next 2 weeks. If you are planning something that will delay the adoption process, i.e. going on holiday, moving house etc., we suggest you wait until your schedule clears to submit your application. We are unable to hold an animal for long periods of time.
  • Please only submit an application form when you are 110% certain you are ready to adopt a dog.
  • We make our decision based on which home is most suitable for our animals and always put their best interests first. This decision is final and no further correspondence will be entered into.
  • We respond to every application that arrives in our inbox within 72 hours. Please bear with us; we are all volunteers with jobs, families and our own pals to take care of!
