LVDR Policies

  1. We have a NO destruction policy.
  2. All prospective adopters will be vetted prior to adoption.
  3. No dog from Lea Valley Dog Rescue will be bred from.
  4. All Adult dogs are neutered, vaccinated and micro-chipped prior to being re-homed.
  5. Puppies are vaccinated prior to being re-homed. They must be neutered by the adopting family before their 1st season for a female, or by the age of 9 months for a male.
  6. We will require a vet reference as proof of neutering if a dog was too young to be neutered at the time of adoption.
  7. All dogs homed by us will live indoor as an integral member of the family. They must not be used for guarding, hunting, breeding or any commercial purpose.
  8. All dogs homed by us will receive adequate vet attention should they become ill.
  9. All dogs will be exercised regularly/daily.
  10. No dog homed by us will be left alone for long periods of time.
  11. Training classes are strongly recommended for puppies & partially trained dogs.
  12. Dogs homed by us must be returned to us in the unfortunate circumstances that the adoptive family can no longer keep them. We offer our dog’s lifetime back up.
  13. We require a minimum donation of £400.00 to help us recover some of the cost of housing, feeding, neutering, vaccination, micro- chipping & veterinary attention.
