The Procedures

Get an adoption application form from us or download the pdf on this page.
Complete the adoption application and either return by email to Send Mail or fax (086 273 1915)
Once your application is received back you will be contacted by a Peke Rescue volunteer via email or phone call to conduct a home inspection
Once your home has been approved we will discuss the available Pekes that will fit in with your home
An adoption contract will be drawn up and emailed to you. This must be signed and returned together with proof of payment of adoption fee
If there is not a suitable rescue peke available, you will be put on a waiting list and will be contacted when one becomes available - we receive rescues on a daily basis
A few follow up visits will be made by a Pekingese Rescue volunteer to ensure that the peke has settled down and is happy
If the adoption does not work out for either the new owner or the peke then the peke must be returned to Peke Me Rescue S.A. - only Peke Me Rescue S.A. can re-home the peke.
Adoptions out of Gauteng will be at an extra cost to the new owner (flight and crate - approx R1000 per dog)

Important!

We do not home Pekes if all your other animals are not sterilized and their vaccinations are not up to date - Proof must be supplied when home-check is conducted

We also do not home Pekes on a first come first serve basis: we do not promise any specific dog
Adoption Fee R650 this includes sterilization, vaccination, de-worming, anal gland extraction, ear flushing, and teeth cleaning
A mandatory micro-chip identification will be inserted into the Pekes neck – This costs R250 and is payable by new owner
Should there be puppies up for adoption the adoption fee will be R1250 + R250 for a compulsory micro-chip
This includes sterilization paid by us when pup is 6 months of age. A sterilization contract must be signed by the adoptee
