Rehoming

Are you a rescue operation looking to rehome an animal?

We can help…

Give a Dog a Bone… and an animal a home is a young, unique and award winning charity supporting the over 60’s to afford a rescue pet companion!

It’s a WIN/WIN – the person gets a friend and the animal gets a home!

As a result of supporting older adults to afford a rescue pet, we also receive a high volume of enquiries from people in this age bracket, looking to find a pet companion.

To provide a solution, we are now piloting a rehoming page on our website, where rescues can provide details of animals looking for a safe home…

Please note, as this project is in its infancy, we will limit the number of animals highlighted.

If your submission is approved, we will showcase your chosen animal(s) details on our website, whereby interested parties will contact you directly.

Disclaimer: Any resultant rehoming is a private matter between the adopter and the rescue operation offering the animal for adoption. Give a Dog a Bone….and an animal a home acts purely as a supportive and objective platform, enabling rescue animals to find a home.

My name is: Bleu

My age is: 5 years old

I am a: Dog

Male/Female: Male

Neutered: Yes

The rescue who has me up for adoption is: Scottish Staffordshire Bull Terrier Rescue

My current location is: Glasgow but cover Scotland-wide

My adoption fee is: £160

I can live with dogs: No. I’m great with other dogs but I’m exceptionally boisterous in the house so it would be best to be the only dog

I can live with cats: No – really hate cats and small furries.

I can live with kids: No – I am too boisterous.

My ideal home would be: Single person with no kids and few visitors or laid back couple. My new home has to have lots of patience and be prepared to see past my cuteness and understand me and my needs. I’m the perfect dog outside but inside my behaviour can be what you’d expect of a young pup, except I’m a fully grown big boy and it’s apparently just not cute. I’m wild in the house but I have a behaviour management plan in place that anyone interested in me would have to demonstrate they can follow. If this plan is followed, once I settle down, my favourite place will be cuddled up on couch.

Things my future human(s) should know about me: I will take some time to settle in and will behave in a way that could be described as ‘challenging’. The more stressed I am, the worse my behaviour is. I will mouth you, jump up and tear around the house until I settle down and will generally calm down after a few days. However this is how I behave with visitors to the home. My fosterer is working on these issues with me and I’m slowly beginning to get it. I am an adorable cuddle monster and I just need someone who understands that my behaviour is outrageous because I’m unsettled and although I may stress you out, this makes me even more unsettled. I love people – theres no badness in me (except when it comes to cats). I just want to be settled in a nice home with people who understand me.

My name is: Mitch

My age is: 3 years old approx

Male/Female: Male

Neutered: Yes

The rescue who has me up for adoption is: Scottish Staffordshire Bull Terrier Rescue

My current location is: Edinburgh but cover Scotland-wide

My adoption fee is: £160

I can live with dogs: No – this is all new to me and although I’m good with other dogs, it would be best I’m a lone pet

I can live with cats: Possibly with gentle introduction

I can live with kids: No – best I don’t for now

My ideal home would be: The world is quite new to me, for example, it’s only recently I’ve been out on walks. I’m unsure of everything at the moment but with positive experiences, I will thrive. It would be best if I was in a quiet, adults only home, where they can introduce me to new things and help me understand how things work. I need to learn how I should and shouldn’t behave. I’m a loving boy who hasn’t had the best start in life. I can’t be shouted at and need a very gentle approach.

Things my future human(s) should know about me: I am learning and a ‘work in progress’. I form attachments very easily and need taught right from wrong. I can’t bear being left alone or locked in anywhere – I like the doors being open as I’m quite scared about being locked in. In time I will settle down as I begin to feel safe and get used to being alone but for now, I need time and patience to thrive. I’m a bright boy and I need to put on some weight. I’m affectionate and inquisitive and need a special person to help me understand my new world.

My name is: Dita

My age is: 4 years old

I am a Greyhound

Male/Female: Female

Neutered: No – I’ve just finished a season so we need to wait a few months to be spayed safely. GAL will cover the costs of the spay.

The rescue who has me up for adoption is: Greyhound Awareness League

My current location is: Glasgow

My adoption fee is: £150

I can live with dogs: Yes, I can live with other greyhounds or larger dogs but not with smaller dogs.

I can live with cats: No

I can live with kids: Yes, I can live with older children who will give me space when I want alone time.

My ideal home would be: Lots of places to sleep, a garden to play in, a few short walks a day. Lots of treats and toys!

Things my future human(s) should know about me: I am an ex-racing greyhound and have only stopped racing about a month ago. I’m still getting used to other breeds of dogs (besides greyhounds) and can get excited if dogs or small animals are running around. This will improve with some training and patience.

To find out more or enquire about Dita, please visit Greyhound Awareness League, call them: 0870 888 7277, or email them: greyhoundawarenessleague@gmail.com.
