Why does AHDRO do home visits on prospective adopters and fosters?
When clients come to us to adopt or foster a homeless dog, we believe it is important to get to know them and see the home environment. By meeting the client in their home, we can suggest the appropriate dog or dogs for the client’s lifestyle. The more we learn about potential adopters/fosters, the better the match will be. All of the dogs in our program have lost one or more homes in their lives, often through no fault of their own. We owe it to our dogs to find the best match so that these loving pets never have to experience the heartache of losing a family again. Some homes and lifestyles are not suited for our dogs because the characteristics of the breed or a particular personality trait of the dog desired. If the home is not approved, it is with the best interest of the dog and the client in mind.
- I work for a District Council. If we have an officer who works out from home, goes on site visits and occasionally visits the office for admin purposes, has their base reallocated to home?
- How long does the home study process take? And how many visits with a social worker are involved?
