I want to adopt a puppy or dog

Step 1. Read the profiles on our website 

Think about what type of dog best suits your lifestyle. Do you have space for a large dog? Or do you want a dog that will happily live in an apartment? 

Our profiles will help you get to know the personality of each of our dogs and find the perfect match for both you, your family and your pet.


Step 2. Visit Blacktown Animal Rehoming Centre to meet the animal

Whether you’ve found an animal on our site you’d like to meet, or you’re not sure which animal to choose, you should come to visit us at 20 Owen Street, Glendenning NSW.

Please make note of the animal's impound number for staff reference if you have a particular animal you would like to meet.

Step 3. Meet and greet with animal

A friendly Blacktown Animal Rehoming Centre staff member will assist you with a meet and greet and answer any questions or concerns you may have. If you already have a dog at home we suggest you to bring along your dog for a meet and greet with any potential new animals to make sure that they are compatible. 

We encourage you to spend time at our Centre with your future pet to see if you’re compatible. If it doesn’t feel right, it’s important to let us know, as another animal may be more suitable for you.

Step 4. Complete the adoption process

All dogs and cats adopted through our centre will be vaccinated, desexed, microchipped and lifetime registered.  We’ll guide you through the paperwork process to transfer the animal's microchip and registration into your name. This information is held by the NSW database on the Pet Registry website. You can also update any microchip details online.

For more information about the NSW Pet Registry go to petregistry.nsw.gov.au

Step 5. Settle your new furry companion into your home

In the excitement of bringing your forever puppy or dog home, you might be disappointed or worried if they don’t settle into their new environment straight away. Give them time to explore at their own pace and soon they’ll will be part of your household.
