Rehoming a pet is incredibly rewarding and can also be the most cost effective way to acquire a new family member. All animals who come from the RSPCA will have been fully assessed - by behaviourists and vets - and will also be microchipped, neutered and vaccinated.
At a time when we know the cost of living is impacting families across the nation, sadly the number of people adopting pets has fallen at a time when more animals are coming into our care, possibly as their owners struggle to cover their costs.
Our Animal Kindness Index found that 68% of pet owners were concerned about the increasing cost of pet care while 19% were worried about being able to afford to feed their pets.
So it's more important than ever to do your research first and really consider whether now is the right time for your family to take on a pet. If it is, then please consider adopting! We have thousands of animals across England and Wales waiting to start their happy ever after.
Getting a pet is an exciting time, but it's important to make sure you're ready before you rehome with our expert advice.
