Adopting from West Hatch
OUR ANIMAL CENTRE IS TEMPORARILY CLOSED TO THE PUBLIC UNTIL FURTHER NOTICE.
We introduced new Covid-secure rehoming policies and procedures during the last lockdown and found them to be very effective. We will therefore continue to rehome animals virtually by organising video call meet and greets, conducting rehoming applications and assessments over the phone, and delivering companion animals to their new homes via a network of our frontline staff who are designated key workers by the Government in England and Wales. This does mean that rehoming will be restricted to local homes only during the lockdown.
Our phone lines remain unmanned while we work with reduced staff, so please email firstname.lastname@example.org to contact us and we will get back to you as soon as we can.
Further information on how the lockdown in England affects our services is available on the RSPCA website.
Thank you for your support and understanding during this difficult time. It is very much appreciated.
The centre takes in many animals who have been rescued from cruelty and neglect but sadly also animals who have simply been abandoned.
It often takes weeks, sometimes months to rehabilitate them and get them ready to find loving new homes. We are always looking for understanding new homes for our animals so please consider taking on the rewarding challenge of rehoming a rescue animal and in return they will offer you fun, friendship and loyalty.
If you have room in your home and in your heart to take on a rescue animal, please take a look at the list below. If you can't find the pet you're looking for now, check back regularly to see if your perfect match has become available or visit Find a pet to view other animals in the RSPCA's care across England and Wales.
Our centre is always full, but sometimes there may only be a few animals available for adoption. This is because the other animals are still subject to criminal prosecution and waiting for their cases to be heard in court, or undergoing rehabilitation.
