If you would like to adopt an animal from us, you must first complete the adoption form before we can arrange a home visit. The form can be completed online or at the shelter.
Once we have deliberated to identify an animal which is suitable for adoption and feels well matched with your preference, a home visit can be arranged. With dogs, we will send you a written assessment before you meet them to ensure you are fully able to deal with any issues or needs. A home visit is sometimes required to adopt a small animal from us as well.
All of our adoptions are by appointment only. 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 adoption fee for each animal is:
£200 for a dog or £275 for a puppy. This fee includes: neutering; microchipping; the first vaccination (minimum); kennel cough vaccination; flea treatment; worming; vet check and four weeks insurance cover.
£95 for a cat or £120 for a kitten. This fee includes: neutering; microchipping; the first vaccination (minimum); flea treatment; worming; vet check and four weeks insurance cover. Rabbit, Guinea Pig, Ferret and other Small Animal Adoption
£30 for a rabbit. This fee includes: neutering; myxomatosis and VHD vaccination; vet check; microchipping and four weeks insurance cover.
£20 for a ferret. This fee includes: neutering, microchipping and vaccinating against distemper.
For other small animals we ask for a donation.
After adoption, a home visit will be arranged to ensure that you and your new animal are happy. Take a look at the Dogs, Cats, Ferrets, Rabbits and other smaller animals all looking for their forever homes. We also have a separate website for Reptiles.

We do our best to update the website regularly, but please note that there are animals available for rehoming which are not yet featured on the site.
