If you’d like to be considered for adoption or fostering....

Please note, we don’t rehome outside of our catchment area. This is Keighley, Craven, Aire, Worth, and Wharfe Valleys and bordering parts of Bradford, Halifax and Leeds. A list of the postcodes we cover can be found on our FAQ page.

A rehoming fee of £200, (£150 for dogs aged 10+) applies to all adoptions. All dogs are neutered, vaccinated, wormed, flea treated, and microchipped.

Step 1 Carefully read all the information on this page and visit our FAQ page to check we cover your postcode area

Step 2 Download and complete our home check questionnaire. See links on right hand side.

Step 3 Organise required photos

  • A photo of some ID which displays proof of address.
  • Photos of your main living area & outside space
  • A photo which shows your tenancy allows dogs (if applicable). This can be your tenancy agreement or an email or letter from your landlord or housing association.

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

Step 5 Once we have received a completed form and the required photos one of our volunteers will contact you to arrange a home check. We ask you to ensure that all family members / household occupants are present for the home check. We cannot guarantee how quickly your home check will take place as our team members are all volunteers.

Please note: If your home is rented we need to see evidence that your tenancy allows dogs PRIOR to the home check.

Please be aware that a Word Document file, like the one above, can trigger a security notification in your browser when you download it. This is not related to our document it is a safety feature of some anti virus software.

A home check will be undertaken by one of our friendly volunteers. They will ask lots of questions about your family, home life, experience and ability so we can match you with the perfect dog. Please be honest through this process. We will also ask you to provide details of someone who can provide a reference for you. This is usually a vet or groomer if you’ve had a pet previously, or an employee or similar if not.

Don't Just Take Our Word For It....

  • We adopted our beautiful rescue from Aireworth Dogs 4.5 years ago. We had been in touch with other rescues but after meeting some of the team at a fundraiser we decided to look into their charity instead. We were thoroughly home checked and given lots of support when trying to find the best dog to suit our family. We were supported throughout the process, and we found our beautiful dog Treacle. We have had her 4.5 years now and have contacted Aireworth on many occasions in that time and they are always there to support and advise. I couldn’t recommend these lovely, caring wonderful people enough.

If you express an interest in a dog once you’ve been home checked, we will look at your home check and if we think it’s a suitable match we will be in touch. Please read the information about the dog carefully and consider if s/he is a good match for you. If the post says no children under 10 or no cats for example there will be a good reason for this!


If you want to adopt one of our dogs please contact us to arrange a home check and a meet.
