The Adoption Process

What’s Involved?

At ARQ our dogs are everything. They are not for sale, they are not free, they are not kept in cages, they are not treated like a number. We seek the very best in veterinary care, we thoroughly screen our applicants and they are not ‘sold’ to the first person who applies. Our dogs are unique, individual and every one of them is special in their own way. We pride ourselves on looking for the very best home for them.

For those reasons, ARQ has an adoption application process that ensures we find the right home for each of our animals. This is not just for the wellbeing of the animal, but it’s also for the happiness of the family adopting a new pet into their home. We want your experience to be the very best it can be, both during the application process, and also with your new family member at home.

To apply to adopt any of our animals, please fill in the adoption form. This form must be completed as part of your adoption application, and we may need to ask or gather further information from you during the process. A representative of ARQ will be in contact with you as soon as possible to discuss your application. Please note you may be asked to provide photographs of your home, backyard, other animals and where you are intending for your new family member to sleep! To speed your application process up, it is requested that you have these photographs ready to send shall we ask for them. Remember, we love our pets and we want only the best for them and for our families adopting.
If you have any questions, please feel free to email our Adoption Coordinator. Please note, this form does not replace the adoption application shall you wish to adopt.
