    Address and Postcode (required)

    Your Phone Number (include your area code and mobile number if applicable) (required)

    What time is it best to call you?

    Where did you hear about us - facebook, twitter, internet search, poster, word of mouth etc?

    Do you have your own transport to enable you to visit the rescue kennels?

    Tell us about the other people who live in your house full time. Please include any children under 16yrs that regularly visit you and their ages


    Children ages

    Are there any children in the immediate family under the age of 6yrs? We are extremely careful about rehoming greyhounds around under 6yrs and not all greyhounds will be suitable to live with such small children. You will be guided through this during the homing process.

    How long will the dog be left for unattended during the day? (in hours)

    Where will the dog be left when you go out?

    Do you have any pets that live either indoors or outdoors? Please briefly tell us about them.

    Type of home - Please select as appropriate

    Other (please state)

    Is your home owned or rented? We have to ask this in case a landlord agreement is required to have a dog in your property

    Do you have a garden? If yes, Is it secure and how high is the fencing/ gates?

    Where will your dog be walked and how often?

    Have you ever owned a dog before? If so, please tell us about them-

    What age of dog are you thinking of re-homing and would you prefer a male or female. If you have no preference just say 'no preference'

    Did you have any specific greyhounds (in our care) in mind?

    Have you ever had to return a dog to the rescue centre or breeder? What were the circumstances surrounding the return? This will not exclude you from having a dog from us but will help us find the right dog for your circumstances. Please be honest.

    If the dog started to display problematic behaviour would you be prepared to take it to training classes or consult advice from a behaviourist?

    When were you thinking of adopting the greyhound? If longer than in 2 months time let us know as we will do your homecheck nearer to the time of adoption.

    We also offer life time back up at the Lancashire Greyhound Trust. If, for whatever reason you can no longer care for your greyhound, or need assistance, please contact us and we will ALWAYS take the dog back into our care or provide support if we can. There is also a £190 non refundable donation fee to adopt a greyhound from us. Please can you acknowledge you have seen both statements and say whether you agree to this or not below.

    Any other additional information you feel we should know.
