We aim to make all adoptions as easy as possible for both the animal and prospective owners, but as an animal welfare organisation, we take rehoming of our animals very seriously.
Our policy is that all adoptions are subject to a home check prior to the rehoming of any animal in our care to ensure suitability to the surroundings.
Learn more about insurance you will receive with your new adopted friend from Agria Pet Insurance (dogs and cats only).
Prospective owners seeking to adopt a dog will be required to walk a chosen dog on at least two separate occasions. This is to ensure that the animal and prospective owner can become accustomed, form a bond and ensure that they are right for each other. All family members who will be living with the dog will be required to attend.
During a home check, evidence will need to be provided that any garden environment is secure.
The adoption fee for a dog is £130. This includes neutering, the first two vaccinations, flea and worm treatment and microchipping.
We do not rehome cats on, or near to, a busy road. In addition, we do not generally rehome cats as ‘indoor’ pets.
The adoption fee for a cat is £70. This includes neutering, the first two vaccinations, flea and worm treatment and microchipping.
We only rehome rabbits in bonded pairs, or if we have a single rabbit or group with more than two rabbits available for adoption, then we will rehome a single rabbit provided there is a rabbit in the new home with which to pair them.
During a home check, evidence will need to be provided that the garden is secure, or there is a large run and an adequate size hutch, which is large enough for the rabbits to stand on their back legs and live comfortably (two rabbits would require a double sized hutch).
The adoption fee for a rabbit is £60 for a bonded pair or £30 for a single rabbit. This includes neutering, vaccination and flea treatment.
The above fees include any veterinary treatment that an animal has received prior to being rehomed.
