Our Mission

Birmingham Dogs Home has been rescuing, reuniting and rehoming dogs for almost 130 years. Our charity cares 24 hours a day, every day of the year for stray, abandoned and relinquished dogs from across the West Midlands and South Staffordshire. 

We work with nine local authorities across the Midlands who trust us to deliver the best possible care to over 2,500 dogs every year at our rescue centres near Solihull and Wolverhampton. As one of the region’s oldest and best loved charities we are committed to lead the way for animal welfare in the Midlands, providing the very best level of care for every dog that needs us and support and advice to their adopters and future families.

How the adoption process works

Browse through the dogs which are currently available for adoption here. Check to see if they are suitable for your family and life-style and read about their character, needs and medical history. If you are interested in finding out more about one of our dogs please complete the online enquiry form. We may receive a number of enquiries about any one of our dogs. Our rehoming team will look at every application and make the best match to suit each dog. 

Every dog is different! We will be in touch with you to discuss your application further if we think he or she may be the right dog for you. It may be that the dog you have enquired about is matched with another potential adopter. If this is the case we will keep you updated and we can keep in touch to let you know straightaway when more dogs become available on our website if you would like us to.

If you do not wish to complete an online application, please call our rehoming team and they will complete the online application for you by taking more information over the phone. Please see our contact information for details.

How much will it cost?

It costs between £190 and £220 to adopt a Birmingham Dogs Home dog. All of these funds are used to help run our charity and enable us to help more dogs in need of our care.

Why do we charge a fee to rehome a dog?

While a dog is at Birmingham Dogs Home, he or she is given all the care they need including food, medical treatment and TLC.

It costs on average £100 per week for every dog in our care and for many that need medical treatment this cost is much higher.

The adoption fee goes some way towards these costs.
