About Independent Flatcoated Retriever Rehoming
' No one has a kinder braver heart than a Flatcoat anywhere'
The picture of Polly was drawn by Jean Hayman and she kindly allowed us to use the picture as our logo. Polly was owned by Glenis Packham who co-founded the Independent Flatcoated Retriever Rehoming with Mary Haines in 1999.
WHO ARE WE?
We are a group of Flatcoated devotees who using our own resources set up the Independent Flatcoated Retriever Rehoming.
Our priority will always be the welfare of any Flatcoat needing rehoming or help.
HOW WE WORK
Using our ever increasing network of Volunteers and contacts we are able to manage most situations where a flatcoat may need rehoming or assistance. We assess each dog to enable us to match it with the most suitable home on our Waiting List.
All prospective new homes will be vetted.
Each situation is treated individually.
It is not our policy to purchase dogs.
It should be appreciated that each Rehoming has different reqirements and where possible we work with the parting owner and the new owner to enable us to rehome 'home to home'. When this is not possible our dogs will be fostered in a home enviroment, we do try to aviod putting dogs in kennels. We try to carry out all Rehoming with as little stress to the dogs as possible.
FLATCOATED RETRIEVER X'S
It is the policy of this rehoming to rehome Flatcoated Retriever X's and if you would be interested in rehoming a 'X' please add a note to the rehoming form.
