Frequently asked questions
I want to adopt one of your dogs. How do I apply?
To begin the adoption process, please fill in the ADOPTION FORM and upload it to the site or email it to email@example.com. Please be honest with your answers and don't put what you think we want to hear. Our rehoming volunteer will then telephone you to discuss adoption and to organise a home check.
Why do you charge an adoption fee?
Why are you not a registered charity?
How can I help?
There are a number of ways you can help and, whether it's by donating money, time or something else, every little really does make a huge difference to the work we do. You can find out more on our Get Involved page https://www.bedsforbullies.com/help-us
Who runs Beds For Bullies?
The rescue was started by Liz Haslam who runs Can I Wag Your Tail Kennels in Norfolk. Liz has many years of experience working with dogs and started Beds For Bullies in 2012. The rescue is a voluntary organisation and relies totally on Bull Terrier lovers who are prepared to give up their free time to help with rescue and rehoming.
How is Beds For Bullies funded?
Beds For Bullies is funded entirely by donations from the general public and the people who adopt dogs from us are asked to pay a donation fee in order that we can continue with our work.
I can no longer look after my dog. Can you help?
Yes we can! Please fill out the Rehoming Request form on our home page and submit it using the link button provided or by emailing it to firstname.lastname@example.org
How are donations used?
Beds For Bullies has no paid staff, no one on an expense account and no one taking advantage of the money raised. All money given goes into the care of the dogs so please give generously if you can, secure in the knowledge that your money will be spent exactly as you would expect it to be. Every penny does count and most of our limited and precious funds are spent on veterinary treatment, transportation and kennel costs.

Why do you require dogs to be spayed / neutered?
Rescued dogs in particular should not be bred. No responsible breeder uses a dog of unknown ancestry. Rescuers see every day the misery that comes from irresponsible breeding; from placement in bad homes to genetic problems to temperament difficulties. The number of unwanted dogs put to sleep every year is staggering. Rescued dogs should never be used to contribute to the very problem that often brings them to rescue.
Why do you do a homecheck?
Once we have received an application form to be considered for rehoming or fostering, we like to visit your house and meet you in person. We have a group of volunteers (we always need more) who will pop round for an informal meeting to see your home situation, meet your other pets and family. They then report back to the team and confirm what you have put on your application forms. It's a chance to ask any questions or raise any concerns you may have, take signatures if needed and exchange paperwork etc.
