We are delighted that you have chosen to come to us to give a Siberian husky a home and to help you be sure that choosing a Siberian Husky as a furever friend is the right choice for you. We strongly advise you to read our breed info page and booklet 'Could You Cope With Me' also located on the breed info page.

The Adoption Process

You will need to register your interest with our adoption team on 07908 527021, we ask you several questions about your home, lifestyle, family, other pets and children. It is very important that you are completely honest with us; we want to find the right dog for you and your family.
 
Once the form is filled in and we are satisfied that a husky will suit you, a home visit is arranged. This is just to assess your home and family circumstances and that they are suitable for a siberian husky. We may offer advice if any changes are needed. 

Once a successful visit has been carried out, we will check your chosen dog is a suitable match. If not we will try to find you an alternative.
(All of our dogs are assessed by experienced Husky people for a minimum of two weeks before being offered for adoption, so they can placed in the most suitable homes.)

You will then get to go and meet the dog. You must be prepared to travel as our fosterers are located throughout the UK. We may ask for more than one visit. If all goes well on the visit/s you will then be able to adopt him/her on reciept of the recommended donation. 

All dogs come with: 

5 weeks free insurance with AGRIA which we strongly advise that you continue,

they are vaccinated,

health checked (any medical issues will be discussed prior to the adoption)

one years free membership to the club.

All our Siberians are spayed and neutered, unless contra indicated for health or age reasons, young Siberians are sent out on a neutering contract. 

all dogs will have a unique welfare number which will allow them to enter races if wished. (A number of other organisations outside of the SHCGB will allow SHCGB Welfare dogs to run as pedigree dogs under their welfare numbers, however you as the adopter must check that your chosen organisation will except them, as Kennel Club registration/details or pedigree will not be released with any SHCGB Welfare Dog, The SHCGB would encourage any new adopter to compete a club events)
