If you are applying to adopt a dog or cat you need to complete an application form online or at the Shelter. This needs to be done before you can express an interest in a certain animal. Once we have matched you with a dog/cat a home visit will then be arranged.
With dogs we will send you a written assessment before you meet them to ensure you are fully aware of any issues and needs.
A home-visit may also be required to adopt a small animal from us.
Our adoptions are by appointment only as many of the animals in our care find it stressful to see strangers while they are in kennels or pens. Thank you for your understanding.
The relevant forms can be found here:-
Please email your perfect match form to us firstname.lastname@example.org
