Please ensure you are ready to adopt a dog before you complete the application form. Once you have reserved a dog and passed your homecheck (which will normally be done within 7 days) we do expect you to adopt your new dog within a few days. If you live in rented accommodation we will need to see written permission from your landlord before you can visit the dogs. We will also ask for ID (utlity bill/bank statement confirming your address and photo ID such as passport, driving licence) before we arrange your homecheck.
Whilst all our dogs are assessed prior to being re-homed and full information given to prospective adopters, we cannot guarantee the temperament or behaviour of the dog in its new home, especially in the first few months.
KGR ask for a minimum adoption donation of £250.00, which takes into consideration that the dog has been fully vet checked, kennelled, neutered if it is an adult dog, vaccinated and micro-chipped, wormed and front-lined. We explain why we ask for a donation in our Q&As.
We can re-home the dogs outside of the Kent area so long as we can arrange a home check in your area and you are prepared to travel to meet the dog and then again to collect him.
If for whatever reason you are unable to keep the dog, then it must be returned to KGR together with the vaccination card and passport, if applicable. This will be your responsibility and you will have to make arrangements for the dog to be transported to our kennels in Kent or to a foster home in Kent. We rarely have empty kennels spaces so you may need to hold onto the dog until a space becomes available.
The donation cannot be refunded under any circumstances.
Please read our Q&As for more information.
