Procedures & Fees

Find each other online

Step 1 – Find each other online. You can view the animals we have available for adoption on our rehoming pages. Please note that potential adopters must live within one hour’s drive of the location of the animal being adopted.

Complete our online application form

Step 2 – Complete the online application form.

If you live in rented accommodation we will need written permission from your landlord within 48 hours of the animal being reserved.

All existing animals ideally should be neutered (with the exception of cats which must already be neutered) if wishing to adopt another animal of the same species.

All our animals are different; some animals will need more company than others. Active dogs normally cannot be left alone for more than 4-5 hours at a time, but cats are happier with their own company. Kittens and puppies need more attention than adult animals. You will need to make sure that the proposed pet suits your lifestyle and circumstances, even after the COVID situation, and that you can provide for its needs.

Virtual Home Visit

Step 3 – If your application is successful you will be asked to provide photos or video of your home and, for a dog also photos and video to show you have a suitably secure private garden/yard.

Adoption and Collection of your animal

Step 4 – If approved, the adoption form and any other relevant paperwork will be emailed and we would ask that potential adopters print the paperwork off (if a printer is unavailable, we will post it out). You will be asked to read through all paperwork carefully before signing and sending it back to us by scanning or photographing the signed pages and emailing or posting it back. This must be completed before the animal is taken to its new home.
An appointment will then be made for collection of your new pet.

Post adoption support

Step 5 – You will receive ongoing support from the rehoming centre following adoption and a post adoption home visit will be carried out when current movement and other restrictions have been lifted.

Health & Safety

The health and safety of our staff and volunteers is of utmost importance to us.  Unfortunately we cannot adopt animals to homes where a member of the household is showing symptoms of, or has a confirmed case of COVID-19, or has been identified as clinically extremely vulnerable and shielding.

Application Forms to Adopt

Once you have submitted your application it will be reviewed by one of our staff. If your application is a suitable match for an animal we have available, a staff member will contact you within 3 days. During the call you will be asked questions to cover any additional information we require.

Please note that due to the high number of applications we receive we are unable to respond to unsuccessful applications. Therefore, if you have not heard from us within 3 days, unfortunately your application has been unsuccessful at this time.
