How to Adopt

Who will you find to rehome?
He might be the dog who runs over and has a sniff, or the cat who comes to sit beside you. You never know who you’ll meet and bond with. Because you can’t choose the perfect pet. You find each other.

Most of our rehomed pets aren’t puppies or kittens. They’re loud, quiet, fluffy, big, small, or even three-legged. They come with a personality ready-made, a past that’s unique to them and a lot of love to give. Now it’s up to you to give the animals in our care the loving home they deserve.

Home Visit
If you would like to adopt an animal from your local RSPCA you will first need to have a Home Visit. Home visits are essential to ensure that all of our animals go to caring people who are aware of the responsibilities, long-term commitment and costs associated with owning a pet. If you are accepted as a potential adopter you will receive a pass that allows you to go to view the animals at the boarding kennels or cattery establishments.

What next?
Please contact us using the following numbers to enquire about a Home Visit

Cat Co-ordinator 07926 364633
Dog Co-ordinator 07939 247202

Please leave a message giving your name, address and telephone number clearly so that we can return your call. We contact everyone who wants to adopt.

To adopt an animal, we ask for a minimum donation of:
• Cat – from £75 – includes vaccination, neutering and microchipping
• Dog – from £150 – includes vaccination, neutering and microchipping

All our cats and dogs will come spayed or snipped, vaccinated and microchipped. These vaccinations can cost close to £200 depending on the individual animal’s needs, so please support us by giving what you can.

Why adopt from us?
Some animals come from loving homes were circumstances have changed through no fault of their own whereas other animals in our care have never experienced life in a loving, family home. Can you give one of our animals the happy future they deserve?

There are many sites that offer kittens for sale or dogs for free, but buying a pet online can be risky and could mean you end up paying huge veterinary bills.

Sponsor an animal
Whilst waiting to meet you, your new family member is getting all the care they need in our kennels or cattery. And they’re not alone. We have plenty of hungry mouths to feed and you can help. Become an RSPCA Sponsor today and help other animals in our care find their way home.
