Adoption Process

At the moment we are following Government & RSPCA guidelines regarding the rehoming of our animals. This means that we have had to change the way we carry out our adoptions.

Please read below to find out about our adoption process

 

All of our animals have an adoption fee this includes

  • First Vaccination
  • Flea & worm treatment whilst at the centre
  • Neutering (spay / castrate)
  • Microchip
  • Any other veterinary care & treatment they have received whilst in our care
  • 4 weeks Pet Insurance with Pet Plan

 

The adoption fee may change depending on the animals breed but generally the fees are:

  • Adult cat (a cat over the age of 6 months) £70.00
  • Kitten (under the age of 6 months) £80.00
  • A pair of adult cats (over the age of 6 months) £120.00
  • Adult dog (over the age of 6 months) £180.00
  • Puppy (under the age of 6 months) £250.00

Have a look at our Cat & Dog adoption pages (links below) to see who is available for adoption. Please read the description carefully as to what type of home they are looking for, if you would like to be considered for that animal please complete the ‘Express an interest’ form. This form is sent directly to our Kennel and Cattery Teams who look at these forms in order that they have been received and will contact any potential adopters in the same order. If you haven’t heard within 5 days of submitting an interest then you potentially won’t have been successful, but we do move on to the next person if the ones before are not suitable.

A member of our Kennel / Cattery team will call you to discuss your circumstances and tell you all about the animal you have shown interest in. If the staff member thinks you would be a ‘perfect match’ we will reserve the animal to you. We will ask you for the following things:

  • If you rent your property we need to see permission from the landlord to say that they are happy for you to have an animal in the property. If you have animals already, then the permission needs to show they are happy for you to have another.
  • If you have a cat or dog already, we need to see that they are up to date with their vaccinations, a picture of the vaccination card can be emailed to us.

We are currently unable to carry out home visits so we are asking for either photographs or a video of where the animals will be spending their time and of the garden to be emailed to us.

What happens next is slightly different depending on if you are adopting a cat or a dog.

 

 

Cat adoption process
Dog adoption process

If you are adopting a dog from the centre, you will need to be able to transport your dog securely in your vehicle. We will always be happy to help you with measuring and fitting equipment and accessories. Sometimes, we will let you know that your dog needs to go home with specific walking equipment e.g. harness, headcollar. If you have any questions, please ask.

It is the law that all dogs in a public place must wear an ID tag with their keeper’s surname and address (including postcode), telephone numbers are optional but we would advise that there is at least one number on there. Please bring one of these with you. All of these items except engraved tags can be purchased at our shop on site, where all profits come straight back to the centre.

You and your new family member will then be ready to start your life together! We’d love for you to keep in touch by sending stories and photos, as well as coming along to our fundraising events. You’re always welcome to get in touch with us with any questions.
