We work really hard to find each adopter the right pet.
As many of the animals in our care have been victims of cruelty they often require a period of rehabilitation before they are ready to be rehomed. When our staff believe they are ready they will be given behavioural assessments and a thorough health check - this helps us match their needs to a suitable person or family.
And you’ll be able to enjoy the wonderful feeling that you’ve given a special home to an animal that needs it.
Special homes for special animals
Many of the animals in our care have had a tough time so it’s very important that their next home is the right home and a home for life.
That’s why we ask anyone who’s thinking of rehoming from us to fill in an application form before being interviewed with one of our animal centre staff. We find this is the best way to find out more about you and help you to choose the right pet.
We carry out a home-visit for certain animals and in some cases suggest minor changes that help ensure your home is as pet friendly as possible. We’ll also call or visit afterwards to make sure you and your new pet are adjusting well to your new life together.
We really believe there is a home to suit every animal in our care. Sometimes it just takes a little time to find the perfect home.
We find the right dogs for approximately 17,000 people each year. If you adopt a dog from us where possible they will have been vaccinated, spayed or snipped and microchipped.
To minimise stress to our dogs, it may be that we bring the dogs to meet you rather than take you to meet the dogs.
If you adopt a cat or a kitten from us where possible they will come vaccinated, spayed or snipped and microchipped and ready to begin their new life with you.
