Home-checking for rescues – a short course

Thursday November 24th 2016

When: Arrive 6.30 for a 6.45pm start, finish around 9 pm.

Where: West Horsley, Surrey (easy access of the M25, M3 and relatively near a railway station).

Cost: £10 to include course notes and refreshments (non-members)

        £7 for members (£7 each also to rescues booking more than one place)

Most rescue centres rely on a team of volunteer home-checkers to visit potential new homes for their animals. This vital role ensures that dogs and new owners are paired appropriately and that new owners are fully prepared for the new addition to their family.

This short course will cover the basics in how to carry out a home-check, what to explore with the new owners and how to set up the adoption for success. It will also include how to broach potentially difficult subjects with owners, safety and more!

The half-day will be run by Suzanne Rogers, owner of Learning About Animals. Suzanne has been a home-checker for several rescues for more than 15 years and feels that this topic is just so important considering the number of animals in rescue, the help that rescue centres need and the heartache for people and pets alike when they are not matched well or owners do not fully understand the needs of an adopted animal.

All profits from this session will go to Change For Animals Foundation (CFAF)

Please let me know at time of booking if you require a certificate of attendance of the course for your records.
