The adoption process... things to think about, requirements and what to expect when you visit the Adoption Centre
Dogs Homed... when a dog or puppy is adopted into a loving, forever home they leave the Adoption Centre but they never leave our hearts. From now on we will post their photo up on this page to celebrate the part that we played in giving them their second chance.
Where do our dogs come from...
Dogwatch rescues and rehomes dogs and puppies who, through no fault of their own, have ended up in the Christchurch City, Selwyn and Waimakariri pounds. After the 7 day holding period the council becomes the legal owner and at their discretion may rehome the dog/puppy or destroy it. Dogwatch is contacted if no one steps forward to claim these dogs and, if we have kennel space, we will take them into our care. Dogs with special needs and extremely young puppies will go into foster homes until they are ready for adoption.
Once they reach the safety of the Adoption Centre they get plenty of TLC as we get to know them and get them ready for adoption. While they are in our care they are vaccinated, microchipped, wormed, desexed and socialised with the other dogs, puppies and people.
