Re-Homing Your Dog Through Labrador Welfare


Please ensure that you have explored every alternative before contacting us so that you do not waste our time and the cost of reserving a kennel for your dog.
  • We will need to get as much information as possible from you about your dog. This will enable us to find the best match for him/her from our list of applicants. Please allow approximately 20 to 30 minutes for this call.
  • Your dog will have to come to the boarding kennels that we use to be assessed and for the prospective new owner to view him/her. We find that this is the best system for you, your dog and the new owner. Please do not worry about your dog as he/she will soon settle in and will be well looked after.
  • We only have a limited number of kennels available so we may not be able to take your dog in immediately, although we do keep a kennel free for emergencies.
  • Your dog will need to be fully vaccinated in order to be accepted by the kennels.
  • We will ask you to make a donation towards the first week’s kennelling for your dog. This ensures that we have funds to pay kennelling fees whilst we find the best home for him/her. This will normally take one or two weeks but in some cases this can take up to 4 weeks or more.
  • Please note that we are unable to provide a collection service for dogs.
  • We regret that we are also unable to accept any dog that has shown vicious tendencies
  • When you bring your dog into the kennels you will also need to bring:

1) Current vaccination certificate.

2) Donation towards kennelling.

3) Micro-chipping documents (if appropriate). 

  • When you leave your dog/bitch at the kennels you will be asked to sign a form relinquishing your ownership and agreeing to Labrador Welfare re-homing the dog for you.  Please think carefully before signing the form.
  • Labrador Welfare will make every effort to keep in touch with your dog for the rest of its life. You may contact us to find out if your dog has been re-homed and we will do our best to give you an update in its progress.

It is our firm policy not to destroy an animal for want of a home, except on the advice of a veterinary surgeon.
