OnThe Way Home was set up to try and make a difference to the number of unwanted and desperate dogs in the UK. Thousands are euthanised each year, as there is no where for them to go due to overbreeding. Figures for last year from The Dogs Trust state that the number of 7,058 stray dogs were reported as having been euthanised by authorities taking part in the survey, but not all authorities took part. Many of these poor dogs are young and healthy and were mainly the Staffordshire Bull Terrier breed.
OnThe Way home has many plans for the future to help with these unwanted dogs, with the aim of finding as many as possible new and loving homes.
a bit about OnThe Way Home
OnThe Way Home believe that there is a loving and secure home for every dog, regardless of breed, but sometimes finding the right home can take time and so we already have a dedicated team of foster families who look after our dogs when a home is proving a little elusive for the few. Not only does this give us a more precious time to help the dogs, but it also gives us an invaluable insight into their behaviour and personalities.
To help us establish the suitability of a home and that it is the right dog for you, we will need to carry out a homecheck, just to make sure that everything is as it should be and there is a safe and secure garden. We will also carry out post adoption homechecks, just to make sure that everyone is happy and to help new adopters with any problems that may arise. In essence: we will always be there for you and the dogs.
All dogs will be neutered, vaccinated and micro-chipped.
