Adopting from the Helpline

Firstly – thank you so much for considering a rescue pet from the Munster Lost and Found Pet Helpline.

Secondly – congratulations on your decision to adopt a rescue pet – it’s a wonderfully kind thing to do. So many wonderful dogs and cats are dumped, surrendered or abandoned, and we promise you that giving one a loving new “forever” home will bring a smile to your face every day.

While The Munster Lost and Found Pet Helpline endeavour to reunite all found animals with their owners, sometimes this is not always successful. When every avenue has being explored these cats and dogs are vaccinated, neutered and microchipped and prepared for a new “forever home”. Their temperaments and personalities are discovered, and they are socialised through introductions to a variety of people and animals. At The Munster Lost and Found Pet Helpline, we are very lucky to have the services of a number of volunteers who are extremely experienced in working with animals, and who train and resocialise the pets that we rehome.

By the time they are ready to be rehomed, we have a reasonable idea of the environment they are suited to and the type of person they will respond to best. Before you adopt a pet from us, you will know everything about them, so you can ensure you make a fully informed decision. We know not all our four-legged friends are perfect angels; some don’t like cats, some like nibbling on shoes, others might be a little fond of the sound of their own bark – all the little mannerisms that give them their own unique characters! We’ll tell  you all their traits – in every case the good will outweigh the “not-quite-as-good”, but you’ll be able to decide if it’s the right pet for you.

Adopting a cat or dog from The Munster Lost and Found Pet Helpline provides you with the reassurance that you have a very supportive and experienced team behind you; we will always be available to offer advice and encouragement as your new pet becomes part of your family.

Sometimes, despite the best intentions of the adopter, the adopted pet just isn’t suited to its new home. This is not the adopter’s fault, but we will have learned learnt more about their behaviour and which we will take into account when looking for their next home.


Animal of the Week

Sox is a handsome neutered male dog just shy of 2 years. He has a lovely kind temperament and just wants to please. He is a very loyal dog and should train on recall quickly with the person he loves. He walks on the lead but needs further lead training. Sox loves people and dogs and just yearns to have a home to call his own. Sox is a big boy so a family with older teenage children would be perfect or just an adult home. Sox is house trained. 0862112850 if you would like to offer this bundle of loyalty and love a home.
