KWWSPCA Expression of interest form
The following is the first step in adopting a dog or a puppy from the KWWSPCA. We ask these questions to get an idea of whether the dog that interests you will be a good fit for your family.  These questions are necessary and we apologise if they are a little sensitive. However, from experience, it is essential that we have this information.  Under GDPR this information will not be shared with a third party without your consent and in such cases would only be shared for the purpose of a home check.  All dogs are the property of the KWWSPCA and are rehomed at our discretion.  We cannot take any responsibility for the behaviour or temperament of any dog after rehoming.
