Paws2Rescue Privacy policy

We regard the privacy of those who foster and adopt from Paws2Rescue as very important. We have created this Privacy Policy to explain to you what we do with personal information that you provide. “Personal information” is information that can identify you as an individual.

By submitting personal information to us you consent to our collection and use of the information as set out in this Privacy Policy.

Adopters and fosterers: How do we use your personal information? We will use this information to arrange homechecks, welfare checks if required, to arrange transport for your dog and to maintain ongoing contact with you.

To whom will we disclose personal information? We pass your details onto AVID for microchip registration, to the Homecheck Network to arrange homechecks, to our Romanian transporter to register your dog into the DEFRA system if you are fostering or adopting a dog directly from Romania or other overseas country.
