Terms for Adopters
- From Foster To Forever reserve the right to remove any dog if we feel that it has been mistreated, neglected, abused or is malnourished. The dog will also be removed if prescribed veterinary treatment or follow-up care plans in place before adoption are not fully adhered to.
- Adopting a dog is a long-term commitment so please ensure you can take on the care of a dog both practically and financially.
- DEFRA’s (Department of Environment Food and Rural Affairs) Explicit instructions are that all imported dogs must remain within the premises of the fosterer or adopter for the first 48 hours.
- Please be aware that From Foster To Forever always act in good faith and as far as practicably possible in the best interest of the rescued animals and their adopters. We gather and pass on all and as much information as possible in relation to the dog’s history, wellbeing, health and habits. All rescues are vetted thoroughly before travelling to the UK therefore From Foster To Forever can not be held responsible for any issues or conditions that develop after adoption, however, we recommend/advise that blood tests are carried out annually on imported dogs. FFTF will always be available to provide support and advice to those who give our rescues a chance of a new and secure life.
- Should the dog show any signs of biting or has bitten while in your care or shows signs of aggression then you must immediately contact From Foster To Forever and we will endeavour to help and support the situation. (Please remember these dogs have been assessed prior to adoption). At no time will From Foster To Forever knowingly attempt to re-home a dog that has a history of biting or aggressive behaviour and take every step possible to make sure the dog is suitable for you and your lifestyle.
- Under NO circumstances is the dog to be sold, or given away without first liaising with Mandy Pheasant or Pamela Plenderleith.
- The adopter undertakes full responsibility for veterinary fees and insurance. Microchip registration details will be changed to the new owners’ name by From Foster to Forever within two working days of receiving the full adoption fee.
- Please remember the advice given about other furies i.e. rabbits, guinea pigs etc. it is your responsibility to keep them safe, FFTF can take no responsibility for any mishaps or unpleasant occurrences.
- If the dog has been in foster, please continue with the routine that the fosterer has put in place with the dog for the first month. The reason for this is that we do not want the dog to be overloaded with too much change and we want the transition to be as smooth as possible. Gradually introduce your dog into your lifestyle, one step at a time. We want to make sure that you and the dog have the best chance in the most successful adoption.
- Neuter/Spay – Most of our rescue dogs, unless younger than 8 months old, have been neutered or spayed. If you adopt a puppy it is a compulsory condition of the adoption that you neuter/spay the dog when it is old enough.
We do ask for a adoption donation which can vary for dogs under From Foster to Forever which Includes transport to the UK, traces paperwork and new veterinary certificates required under Brexit rules, vaccinations, passport and microchip including registration into your name. Rabies jab and laboratory blood tests if over 9 months old. Also Neutering if old enough.
