Rehoming and adoption

If you would like to give a pet that much needed second chance in life, then you’ve come to the right place.

The short video below explains how we rehome animals to ensure they have a happy future.

Most of the animals in our care have had a difficult start in life, having been victims of cruelty. For that reason we need to find special homes, with special people, who can help our pets to learn what it’s really like to be in a loving, caring home.

Give a rescued animal a second chance

In 2013, our centres and branches gave over 55,000 animals a second chance of a new home.

Animals like Florence, a 14-year-old poodle/shih tzu cross who was brought into our care in a shocking state. Her eyes and ears were infected, her teeth were rotten and her fur had become so matted that she'd lost her front paws through lack of circulation.

Brave little Florence has made a fantastic recovery and now has a second chance of life thanks to her new owner Karen Branagh:

I cannot praise the officer who saved her, or the vets who care for her, enough.

If you would like to adopt one of the animals in our care, we will take you through a matchmaking process to help find not only the right home for our animals, but also the right animal for you.
