Animal Adoption

If you would like to meet any of our animals please contact our Rehoming Co-ordinator (Sarah Vasey) on 07973 952575 or The centre is open 10am-4pm Tuesday-Friday and 10am-3pm Saturday. Sarah is available to contact between 9am-5pm on these days. You will be provided with the address of the centre when you make your appointment.

When you arrive at the centre you will find the RSPCA office (the blue portacabin) next to the car park. When meeting a dog you will be asked to complete an application form first to ensure that your home and lifestyle match the requirements of your chosen dog. We do not allow the public access to the kennels to reduce the stress levels of the dogs. We have exercise facilities where you are able to walk the dog both on and off the lead. We also have a socialisation room where you can spend time with your chosen dog, in a more homely environment. The cattery is open to the public to allow you to view all of the available cats. The Rehoming Co-ordinator will provide information on each cat’s temperament and home requirements to help assist in your choice of cat. If you decide to adopt one of our cats an application form is required to be completed to ensure you are a suitable match.

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.

Two weeks after adopting your animal you will receive a phone call from our Rehoming Co-ordinator to check that the animal is settling in well and to help with any problems that might have been experienced.

Three 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)
