Adopting a SHWA husky – Step by Step

Adoption application

If you are interested in giving a permanent loving home to an unwanted Husky through SHWA-UK, you should first complete an Adoption Application Form (look in the Adoption menu) and email it to us as an attachment to


You will then be contacted by our local SHWA-UK Co-ordinator who will arrange to visit you and ensure that your home and garden is suitable (and suitably secure) for a Siberian Husky – they can be serious escape artists. As a result of the home-check, suggestions may be made to improve the security of the home / garden if necessary. A reference will also be sought from your vet.

Added to rehome register

If your home check is successfully passed and the vet reference is good, then you will be placed on our Rehome Register and will be considered as each dog becomes available for rehoming. We will make every effort to match dogs to people and to ensure that the dogs find the best possible permanent loving home that they deserve.

Right home matched with the right dog

All dogs rehomed by SHWA-UK will be vet-checked, vaccinated and (except in very rare circumstances where the dog is too old, too young or too ill) neutered before rehoming. Where circumstance mean that it is not possible to neuter the dog / bitch before rehoming, the adopter will be asked to sign a contract agreeing to neuter the dog / bitch within a given period.
