Step 2 Download and complete our home check questionnaire.

Step 3 Organise required photos

Step 4  Email the completed questionnaire along with the required photos and evidence to aireworthdogsinneed@gmail.com to request your home check.

  • I have fostered two elderly staffies. Neo adored me unconditionally and his follower, Mickey, thinks the same about me. Dogs are wonderful for your mood and for your self-esteem.



  • Honestly your team couldn’t have been any better throughout the adoption process whilst I was looking for a dog, it was a pretty painless process really! I had no doubts that the team knew what was best for the dogs and eventually they paired me with the perfect pup



  • I have adopted two dogs via Aireworth Dogs in Need and both experiences were positive. All the volunteers genuinely care for the welfare of the dogs that find themselves in their hands. Professional, dedicated and consistently supportive both pre and post adoption. I wouldn’t go elsewhere locally if looking for another furry friend. They do a wonderful job.



  • You were so helpful to me when we adopted our dog from you and made it very easy to find a good match for my other dog whereas I was struggling with other rescue organisations. She is so happy and I recommend you all the time to others.



  • The home check we had to give us Joni from you was perfect. It made sure we had thought it all through and then the best part was that then you could tell us which dogs you had that matched us. Without all that information you couldn’t make a perfect match and you make so many perfect matches!



  • We cant speak highly enough, starting with fab foster carers, whom made the adoption transition go smoothly for our pooch, the regular calls and advice during the adoption phase and now he’s ours, you are still always there to help. You are amazing at what you do, keeping the needs and welfare of your pooches at the center., than you for making our lives complete.



  • The rehoming process at aireworth is one of the best I’ve ever seen (I have volunteered with several rescues) and looks at the individual and their circumstances to match the correct dog rather than a blanket rule for everyone. This allows dogs to be placed in the the best home for them and sets adoption up for success rather than failure. Everyone works tirelessly to help, save and rehome dogs in the most caring and safe way. By far one of the best rescues I’ve ever had the pleasure of working with.
