From time to time but thankfully only on occasion, the Slovakian Rough Haired Pointer Club does come across dogs of this breed that require a new home. This can be for many reasons and fortunately to date none of these have been due to the breed’s character or behaviour and is usually a fault of circumstance within their current home and their owner/s.
In 2011 the SRHP Club discussed the responsibility, ethics and benefits of a ‘Breed Rescue’. Being a small Club such a complete service was not financially viable or sustainable and subsequently the Club opted for a Breed Careline instead. The SRHP Club Breed Careline is now registered with the Kennel Club and appears in the Kennel Club Breed Rescue Directory.
The Careline is headed by our appointed Careline Coordinator Ms Tania Dynowska (Tel: 01376 749849) whose role is to assist in these unfortunate circumstances. For those who are looking to re-home/adopt one our lovely breed please contact Tania.
For re-homing the Club does have a procedure in which to adhere to and this is as follows:
For someone who wishes to re-home their SRHP via the SRHP Club they must inform the Club at the earliest opportunity, by completing a re-homing form, and be prepared to continue providing full care and support for their SRHP until a suitable adoptive family can be found. There will be no remunerations whatsoever in any circumstance regarding re-homing and all registration/immunisation documents must be handed to a representative of the SRHP Club at the time of collection.
For someone who wishes to adopt a SRHP they must be willing to have their homes vetted and to abide by the SRHP Club Adoption Contract.
