We always need volunteers to do home checks, assessments and transport dogs to and from their new homes.  

Home checks involve visiting a potential adopter to see if their home and circumstances are suitable to have a Dalmatian. 

Assessments require an experienced dog owner, preferably someone that has owned a Dalmatian.  You would be asked to observe the dogs’ temperament and behaviour. It is also helpful to take the dog out for a short walk to assess the dog outside of its home. 

We do have guidelines for volunteers to follow and we would require a report for both assessing dogs and adopters. 

If anyone feels that they are able to volunteer for us then please contact our Central Co-ordinator


The North of England Dalmatian Welfare Service needs foster carers. If you think you may be able to offer a temporary home to one of our rescue dogs, please contact our Adoption Co-ordinator
