Adopting an Animal

Adopting an Animal

The adoption procedure involves completing a comprehensive questionnaire, one to one chats with staff and a home visit. We ask that all the family visit the animal at the Centre before a reservation can be taken. If you are adopting a dog and you already have one, you will also be asked to bring your existing dog to the centre to meet the new one.

Adoption Fees

Hamsters, MIce, Budgies, etc

These adoption fees are only a contribution to the costs of caring for, neutering, micro chipping and vaccinating our animals. You will also receive 6 weeks free cover for your new dog cat or rabbit with More Than insurance (telephone call to More Than to activate).

The 5 Steps

1. When you have chosen the pet you want to adopt, we fill in a questionnaire with you. We are looking for life-long, permanent homes for our animals and we need to be sure you can provide such a home. This means we have to ask questions about your personal circumstances, including your ability to meet vet bills. If you live in rented accommodation you will need written permission to own a pet at the property.

2. If this is satisfactory, you can then reserve the pet.

3. A home visit will be carried out to check that your home is suitable for the pet you have chosen. Normally, the home visit will be carried out within a week but, often, is much sooner than this.

4. When the home visit and assessment have been successfully completed, and the animal is ready to go home our receptionist will contact you to come and collect him or her. There will be some final paper work to get out of the way - then you can take your new pet home!

5. A follow up visit may be carried out to make sure that you, your family and your new pet are happy.
