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
