If you are adopting a puppy, please read the following:

Puppy Neutering Program.

When adopting a puppy, there will be an additional fee payable of £100. This fee will be held by PPTF until your puppy is neutered and proof of this is provided to PPTF from your vet. At this point, the £100 will be returned** to the bank account which the initial payment was received from.


Please note, your puppy should be neutered within 6 months of arrival per your contract agreement.

* Neuter program funds are held separately to all other monies.

** We understand there may be instances whereby neutering within the 6 month period is not possible. The period of the program may be extended on an individual basis at PPTF management discretion. Please contact us should you be unable to neuter your dog within 6 months of their arrival. Failure to do so will result in the £100 being forfeited to PPTF.

I have read and understood the information provided and I agree to all the terms and conditions set out above (Adoption and Foster Declaration v1.1)


If you do not agree to the terms, please do not submit this form. Please contact your adoption/foster admin and raise any concerns you may have. If you have recently applied and do not yet have an adoption/foster admin, an admin will be in touch shortly.

I understand that if I am fostering, the dog is still available for adoption and this will take precedence over fostering unless exceptional circumstances. I understand that I may not be notified before the reservation for adoption is made and if I choose to adopt I will make my admin aware as soon as possible.

Thank you for submitting!
