Lincolnshire Rescue Kennels
Finding dogs their forever homes
Rehoming a Dog
We ask that everyone who will be living at home with the dog comes up to meet them before taking the dog home so that we can discuss yours and the dog's suitability. We also ask that any other dogs that the dog will be living with come and meet  in order for us to make sure that everyone gets along. We can't guarantee that any of the dogs are housetrained or are good with cats. If you have any direct questions about the dogs listed on this page, please email us

We ask for a minimum £110 non-refundable donation for each of our dogs. This covers the dogs having their first vaccination (from 4 weeks of being with us the dogs will also receive their second vaccination), microchip implantation and being wormed.

Please note, all donations and deposits are non-refundable and non-transferable.

Is my favorite breed"
Remember the rehoming process is a really stressful process for all dogs so please be patient.  The last home they were in may not have been very nice.
The following are only guidelines and we consider each case on an individual basis.

Identification showing both name and address must be shown by the potential new owner.
Dogs should not generally be left alone for more than 4 hours, alternatively a dog walker or other arrangements may be made. 
Puppies need to be in a home where someone is around most of the time.
Our rescue dogs must live as part of the family once they are rehomed, and should not be housed outdoors or in a kennel.
The garden must be enclosed securely.
Only positve reward based training methods should be used.
Sometimes we may suggest the new owners undertake training classes, especially for puppies or adult dogs who we have identified as needing on-going training.
If you rehome a puppy, they can usually be neutered from 6 months old, however your vet will advise when it is best to have your puppy or dog neutered.
We would never consider rehoming a rescue dog to a home that breeds or plans to breed dogs.
Bringing a dog in to be rehomed

If you feel you can  no longer give your dog a loving home we may be able to help, we do however have a strict rehoming intake procedure which allows us to help as many dogs as possible whilst taking into account the nature of each individual dog.

Legally we cannot take in and rehome any dog from anybody other than the registered keeper. Written consent can be accepted from the registered owner prior to an assessment.

Before any dog can be taken into the rehoming kennels as a handover from an owner the dog must be assessed by LRK staff, this assessment needs to be booked in advance to ensure that the relevant trained staff are aware of the assessment and will be available to spend the appropriate time with the dog and owner. This will also allow for a proper and thorough assessment and for LRK to gain as much information and background about the dog from the owner to give the best chance of a successful rehome.

On the completion of the assessment the owner will be informed if the dog is to be offered a place in the kennels. If the dog cannot not be taken staff will explain in full detail why the dog cannot be taken in and further advice and other possible options will be discussed.

Following a successful assessment and if there is kennel space, the dog can be taken in immediately.  At this point signed consent from the owner is required alongside payment of a £50 fee/donation.

If the assessment is successful but there is no kennel space, then the owner will be informed of the situation and will be contacted as soon as space becomes available.
