Thank you for considering to adopt a Whippet from Scruples Whippet Rescue.
Before completing this adoption application please consider the following -
Are you able to offer a dog access to a securely fenced garden area at all times?
Is the fencing around this area at least 5ft high with no weak points or are you prepared to install secure fencing as required?
Can you offer a dog human companionship for most of the day? We recommend that no dog is left alone for more than approximately 4 hours a day on a regular basis.
Dogs are not short-term commitments; does your lifestyle allow for the time, patience and expense that a dog will need over the years?
Applications which cannot offer a positive response to these questions may not be considered as favourably as those which can.
We can receive up to 50 adoption applications a day and so we need our applicants to supply as much information as possible in order to get us to notice their application.
Please take time to consider these points within your application -
Why do you want to adopt a whippet?
What sort of life can you offer a whippet?
What level of experience do you have with whippets?
Have you researched owning a whippet if you haven’t owned one before?
Tell us everything you can think of in the space provided at the bottom of the application please – you need to convince us that we should consider your application as we have so many to choose from.
We do not have a rescue centre where you can come and walk round until you find the right dog. We use foster homes for the dogs in our care and some stay with their original owner until a new home is found.
Please be aware that we have to find the right home for each dog and we may not have a suitable dog for you at this point in time. The dogs welfare is our foremost concern.
Sadly we do not have time to respond in full to every application we receive but we do try to send a confirmation letter within a week to let you know if your application has been successful or not.
If you change your mind about adopting from us for any reason, please inform us as soon as possible. Please also let us know if you have applied to another rescue.
Many thanks for your help and understanding!
Please note that we only home dogs within England, Scotland and Wales.
