As you know, the past few months have been a challenge. Our fundraising has been stopped meaning funds are at an all time low, and applications from people in lockdown have increased. We are super grateful to all our supporters and volunteers who have helped us continue with the admin.
As ever we will be shutting down over Christmas to give our volunteers and trustees some much needed down time. This will start on 11th December and we will give full details about that ASAP.
However due to the current backlog of applications and admin around that we have decided to temporarily pause acceptance of applications with immediate effect so we can make sure we are not keeping people waiting longer than needed. As we don’t work on a first come first served basis please rest assured that this doesn’t mean that we will be rushing homing. In fact we are unlikely to begin any new homing in the next week, and will be purely working on catching up with admin.
This means that for the time being, our adoption form is unavailable.
In these times it’s increasingly difficult to safely manage homechecks across the UK so pausing for a few weeks is the best option. We do appreciate your support and do hope that when our process is caught up and reopens in January that you will still consider us for your next companion.
If you can see to continue to share our posts, help us raise funds for the dogs in our care , and just continue to be part of the hounds first family whilst we navigate the crazy that is 2020 we would be forever grateful.
