We reserve the right to increase our adoption fee appropriately depending upon the breed of the animal.
When you rehome from Animals in Distress, you will take home a pet who has been fully assessed by our expert animal welfare staff as well as our veterinary surgeon.
Every pet at the Rescue Centre is:
- Vaccinated, microchipped and neutered (where appropriate for their species)
- Given worming and flea treatments (where appropriate for their species)
- Examined by a vet and given any necessary treatments
- Given a training plan where appropriate, designed to meet their specific needs
Because each pet has their own specific needs and all rehomers have slightly different lifestyles, we don’t have any set rehoming rules or requirements.
We evaluate each pet, and their needs, on an individual basis and we do the same when it comes to identifying the best possible rehomers.
However, the rehoming process for all species at the Rescue Centre follows roughly the same path.
We’ll then get in touch and will work together with you to find your perfect new pet.
Visiting the Rescue Centre
Our cattery and rabbit and guinea pig sections are open to the public from 10.30 am – 4 pm, 7 days a week, so it’s also possible to come and have a look around at the cats, rabbits and guinea pigs that we have available for rehoming.
However, for welfare reasons, our kennels are no longer open for general public viewing. . If you are interested in giving a dog a forever home, it’s necessary to first register your interest in a dog by filling out an application form online, or in our Reception. After our kennel team have reviewed your application, if you are a good potential match we will invite you to come and meet your prospective new dog, and get to know him or her better before making a final decision about whether s/he is the right pet for your family.
Rehoming pets with children
Every pet reacts differently to children so it’s vital that we assess each match on an individual basis. This is to ensure the best, and safest, possible relationship between the pet and the children.
Where possible, we will say if a pet can potentially be rehomed with children, however this may depend on the child’s age, whether they have lived with pets before and the individual pet’s character.
Once you’ve enquired about a specific pet, we will talk through all of his or her needs and how children fit into this.
