Adopt an RSPCA animal

At this branch we rehome both cats and dogs. Our animals enter our care via RSPCA Inspectors who rescue them from unsuitable homes and owners. Many of the animals have suffered abuse, starvation, abandonment and general neglect. They are looking for understanding and caring owners to provide them with loving and safe environment for the rest of their lives. [To see the animals we currently have available to rehome please scroll to the bottom of this page].

All of our animals are checked by a vet shortly after arrival. They are vaccinated and given flea and worm treatment. Any animal that is not already neutered or micro-chipped when they arrive will have this carried out during their stay with us. Any animal that is not neutered at the time of adoption (i.e. puppies and kittens) will be issued with a neutering voucher. This will be expected to be used at an agreed appropriate time as part of the adoption agreement. We strongly advise all adopters to arrange appropriate insurance cover for their adopted animal. For more information on pet insurance please visit:

If you would like further information, or to meet any of our animals please contact our Rehoming Co-ordinator (Louise Brooke) on 07973 952575 or The kennels and cattery are open by appointment. Louise is available to contact between 9.30am-4.30pm Monday to Saturday (usually closed Wednesday and Sunday, but appointments may still be available). You will be provided with the full address and postcode of the kennels and cattery when you make your appointment.

When meeting a dog or cat you will be asked to complete an application form beforehand to ensure that your home and lifestyle match the requirements of your chosen animal. We can provide this form by post, email or online. Please follow the correct link below to complete the online application form if you are interested in adopting a dog or a cat:

We do not allow public access to the kennels to reduce the stress levels of the dogs. 

Once your application has been accepted, a home visit will be organised. This will be performed by a trained volunteer within one week of you reserving your chosen animal. Once a result has been decided the Rehoming Co-ordinator will contact you to either organise an appointment to adopt your animal or discuss any concerns.

At the time of adoption you will receive an adoption pack containing the animal’s vaccination card, medical record, health assessments, behaviour assessments and any other relevant paperwork relating to that animal. The micro-chip will be registered to your details and the adoption form will be completed. All animals are given a health check by our Rehoming Co-ordinator before leaving our care.

Within the first couple of weeks of adoption, our Rehoming Co-ordinator will be in touch to check that the animal is settling in well and to help with any problems that might have been experienced. We are here to support our adopters as best we can to ensure a successful adoption. 

Usually within 3-4 months after adoption you will receive another home visit. This is the final part of the adoption process but we are always available for help or advice throughout the lifetime of the animal. 

Adoption Fees: Dogs (£115), Puppies (£135), Cats (£65), Kittens (£90)
