We don't have any animals available for rehoming today, however there are plenty of animals available across the RSPCA who are waiting for their perfect match.

RSPCA rehoming policy

Assessments and health checks

All our animals will have been put through a full assessment before rehoming.  They will all be fully vaccinated. Animals are vaccinated in line with RSPCA requirements:

Cats: Tricat trio

Dogs: Vanguard 7 and nobivac for kennel cough

All animals are chipped, wormed and treated for fleas.

All animals will have a full health check carried out by a vet within 5 days of adoption and will be weighed and scanned by a member of staff on the day of adoption.

Unless there are any overriding veterinary reasons all animals will be neutered before rehoming.

Meeting animals at the centre

No members of the public are allowed to enter the kennel/cattery area. Perfect match forms must be completed and if your application is successful, you will then be given an appointment to attend the branch to view the animal you are interested in.  


To promote responsible pet ownership, if there are any cats or dogs already living with the potential adopter, these must be fully vaccinated and neutered before the adoption.

If the potential adopter lives in rented accommodation a copy of the tenancy agreement must be shown to prove that animals are permitted in the property.  Again, a temporary reserve can be put on the animal for 48hrs for the potential adopter to get the tenancy agreement to us.


No cat under 9 months of age should be rehomed on a main road. 

Kittens or puppies cannot be left longer than 4 hours. If kittens are being rehomed in pairs, then 6 hours.  We don’t accept going home in dinnertime as adequate time being spent with the animals.

Dogs and cats (other than house cats) should not be rehomed to flats above the first floor.

Unless a cat has already lived as a house cat no branch animal will be rehomed as a house cat.

Adoption fees

Cats £90    A pair of cats £160                      Dogs £150

Cats must have a secure carrier for transportation before leaving the animal centre.  Dogs must have a collar, tag and lead.

Home Visits

Due to Coronavirus, our adoption procedures have changed, we are unable to conduct home visits at present, and once you have selected the animal that you wish to be considered for offering a forever home to, our branch will outline what is now required for our perfect match procedures.

The branch will not take on the cost of any illnesses an animal later develops unless identified during initial health checks and agreed by the branch and the new owner prior to adoption.
