Our Canine Matchmaking Service It is a sad fact that many people will, for various reasons, feel they have to give up caring for their dog. If they have no friends or family that are willing to take the animal, their main options are to give it to a council pound, or an animal charity, or to have the dog euthanized. Unfortunately, some council pounds now refuse to take in unwanted dogs and others charge to do so. This leaves the owner with the choice of finding a space in a sanctuary or putting the animal down. Unfortunately, most sanctuaries will be full with long waiting lists and some charities will prioritise dogs from council pounds leaving owners with the only remaining choice - euthanasia. But even if you do find a space in a pound or sanctuary, how well will your dog cope with its new environment? Sadly, the answer is likely to be not very well at all. Despite how good a charity is, if dogs are kept in a kennel situation for any length of time they may very well start to develop behavioural problems such as aggression, depression or timidity due to boredom and lack of human interaction. This makes it even harder for them to get homed and the vicious circle continues. For the above reasons, our charity is providing a new service called, ‘Made in Heaven, Matchmaking Service’. Our aim is to offer another alternative to people who feel they have to give up their dog but are worried about where it ends up. It means the current owners will have the final say as to where and to whom it is re-homed. The dog will be rehomed directly from the current owner to the new owner without the dog’s paws ever having to go near a pound or sanctuary. 7th Heaven will keep a database of people who want to have their dogs rehomed and advertise them, with photo and relevant details of the animal, on our website. We will keep a second list of people who are looking for a particular type of dog and contact them when a suitable animal becomes available for re-homing. Both parties will then liaise with each other and if both are happy, they make suitable arrangements to have the dog rehomed. If either party is not happy, we continue to advertise the dog until it finds a home. This service will be completely free.
