Our Branch works with a variety of animals including cats, dogs, small furries such as rabbits or guinea pigs and occasionally exotics like reptiles and birds. We do not have an animal centre so all of the animals in our care are kept at external boarding establishments or with fosterers and are viewable by appointment.
You can see our animals here and if you find there is one you would like to meet, complete the application form and we will be in touch to arrange a viewing.
If after viewing you decide you would like to proceed with the adoption we then conduct a home visit. Our home visits are conducted by trained volunteers who will contact you directly to arrange a time that best suits you. Home visits are a common practice when adopting from most animal welfare organisations, and are done as part of our duty of care to ensure our animals find an appropriate home, so please do not be offended when asked to arrange one. They are nothing to worry about and our volunteers are suitably trained to make sure the process is as relaxed as possible – they are also a great chance for you to ask any questions you may have about your potential new pet.
Once the home visit has been conducted we will arrange the adoption process to be completed at a time suitable to you. Please note: as part of your adoption from us, your new pet will be neutered, microchipped, vaccinated and will have received internal & external parasite treatment. You will also be provided with a complete veterinary history of your new pet, 4 weeks pet insurance and a history of your new pet while it was in our care. This can take up to a week to be compiled so there may be a delay between a home visit being approved and the adoption appointment taking place.
We also offer a rehoming service. We understand that sometimes animals needed to be rehomed for a variety of reasons and that it can be quite a distressing time for the current owner. We aim to make the process as straightforward and stress free as possible. Give us a call on 0303 040 1565 for more information.
