Rehoming Terms

We do not rehome to anyone under the age of 18. You must provide proof of age if invited on site to apply for one of our dogs or cats.

We do not rehome to anyone who cannot provide proof of ability to have a pet in their property. You will be asked to provide proof of mortgage, or a landlord/council letter stating type and number of pet(s) allowed in your property.

Each form is used for the pet(s) you have named, you will need to fill in a new form if you see another pet you are interested on our website or app. We will review the information you provided and will get back to you via email or phone to let you know if we have not been able to successfully match you at this time, if we have been able to potentially match you to the named dog or cat and what the next steps will be in the application process, or to let you know if we have reached our interest quota in that particular animal and are no longer accepting interest or applications.

Edinburgh Dog and Cat Home will use the information you provided, and our knowledge and assessments of the animals in our care, to match potential owners with dogs or cats we think would suit their experience and current situation. All our decisions are made for the benefit of the dogs and cats in our care, please resect the experience, knowledge, and understanding of our staff. All our decisions are final.

We advise that all dogs who are rehomed are provided with the necessary training and support for their behaviour to ensure a successful rehoming and a happy family life. This will be made clear by the staff for all dogs, particularly for the dogs who require more support than others. You may be asked to sign a separate agreement relating to the dogs specific training needs. The Edinburgh Dog and Cat Home will guide you through the rehoming process with added support for every specific dog need.

Please be aware that the history of a dog is often not known, and this cannot be accounted for when a dog is settling into its new home.

I have read and agree to the rehoming terms as stated above*
