Getting LUOSKO to help rehome my dog

​If after reading all our advice pages if you still feel that re homing your dog is the only way forward, for whatever reason LUOSKO will not judge you. Our advice pages are there to simply try and help you make a very hard decision a little easier and for you to see all the options.

We appreciate how hard these times can be for families, however like other rescues we struggle sometimes for space to bring dogs into our care. So we have an assessment process in place in order to prioritise dogs needing our help.

We ask that under normal circumstances that you first complete the handover form and return to us as quickly as possible, please ensure you complete the form as honestly as possible as this will help us to help your dog move forward, no matter what the history is it wont affect our decision on bringing your dog into rescue.

When asking us to help, we expect your cooperation and honesty. Once we start the process we encourage people to leave the re homing process to us completely. Our staff are all voluntary and spend time researching options for each dog that is coming in to us, working tirelessly behind the scenes. So when we are told you have re homed your dog elsewhere after you have asked us to help is a huge blow and leads to a lot of wasted resources that could of been used to help other dogs.

As part of our re homing service you will be asked to make a donation to the rescue, this is required upfront when we accept your dog onto our waiting list. We currently ask for a minimum donation of £50 to be sent to the rescue when starting the re homing process. If you would struggle with this one off donation please call us on 08445 881473 to discuss what we can do for you.

​​IN A DIRE EMERGENCY where the situation surrounding the re homing means that immediate action is required please call us on 08445 881473 to discuss further. Please ensure you let our team know the seriousness of the situation when you call.

​Starting the process to rehome your dog

​If you have got this far, then you have exhausted all other avenues and have had to make the decision of handing your dog over to rescue, please follow the instructions below:

Firstly we need you to download and complete the initial handover form.

On the form you will see 2 options available

1. Keeping your dog at home until we have space to bring him/her into our centre

2. Boarding your dog in commerical kennels (assigned by us) until we have space to bring him/her into our centre

Choosing the latter will mean that on top of the handover donation (min £50) you will need to pay a maximum of 2 weeks of kennel fees (reduced rate) until we have space for your dog this is normally £175.

​​YOU MUST choose one of these options or we will not be able to help. Also please bear in mind that if we have to collect your dog from you (depending on distance) this too may be at a cost and may take a few days to organise.

​​Once you have completed the form, we need you to return the form along with a copy of some photo ID, at least 3 pictures of your dog and if possible a few words written by you about your dog, likes, dislikes, attitude, medical issues etc

​​​Once you have sent the documents give us a call on 08445 881 473 to discuss how we can proceed in helping to rehome your dog.

​​PLEASE remember that we receive hundreds of requests to help to rehome dogs, unfortunately space is limited and we MUST prioritise each dog individually which means sometimes we cannot take dogs straight away. However we will still do our best to advertise your dog and to try and do as much as we can to help while we wait for a space to become available.
