Animals in need of a loving home

 

Let's make more Happy Endings!

We care and rehome abused, unwanted and at-risk animals, primarily those brought to us by RSPCA Inspectors and Animal Collection Officers. We do not have an Animal Centre - the animals in our care are housed in private boarding establishments or with foster carers until we can find homes for them. This means that appointments need to be made for viewing any animal. It also means that we cannot accept unwanted animals from the public - if you are looking to rehome an unwanted pet, try these contacts.

 

Adopting an animal from us

All our animals are neutered, microchipped, de-fleed, wormed and vaccinated prior to rehoming - the adoption fee provides a small contribution towards these costs:

Dogs - 105           Cats - 70     Kittens 85       Rabbits - 20
(see an example of how this fee actually saves you money)

 

If you would like to meet an animal, we can arrange for one of our volunteers to meet you at the boarding or fostering establishment.

 

We will carry out a home visit before you adopt an animal from us so that we can discuss the requirements of the pet you have chosen - it also an opportunity for you to ask questions. We follow RSPCA guidelines when rehoming our animals and, occasionally, we may have to say no.

Dogs needing a home

For advice on how to care for a dog, look at the RSPCA's dog welfare pages.

 

Our dogs are neutered, microchipped,de-fleed, wormed and vaccinated prior to rehoming - the adoption fee provides a small contribution towards these costs and saves you having to pay the full cost for these items at your local vets once you get your new pet home.

Please have a look at our our dog rehoming process. Before you come to see the dog that you are interested in, please complete a 'Perfect Match' form and bring it with you.

 

Fudge

With us since August 2016

Fudge  

 

Fudge is a very special little Jack Russell. He's blind but this doesn't cause him too much of a problem (although he needs drops in his eye on a daily basis) and he is very happy once he finds his way around his world - the fact that he can't see doesn't put him off exploring!

His legs don't work too well either but he is still lively and happy and he does like a walk out.

For some reason, ringing telephones (including mobile phones) drive him crazy! We think that the issue could be that he hears high-pitched whistling which we can't, or that he is confused by the sound of a second voice when he can't smell that second person.

Fudge needs a calm, stable environment and a regular routine - he would be best in an adult-only household. He is very loving and kissy and, in the right home with some care on both sides, he would be a happy little boy. We think that the issue with telephones could also be overcome with love and training.

We don't recommend him with cats. He gets on with some dogs, but not all, and can be particular about who he lives with. He does like a fuss though - and his food! Someone will have a great little boy as a friend if they take him in.

Could you offer that special home to this lovely, kissy boy? Please contact Pauline on 07599 969 647 if you think you could provide the right environment for Fudge. If there is no answer, leave a message stating which dog you are interested in and giving your name and phone number. Pauline will phone you back. We do not respond to emails about rehoming our animals.

 

 

Flynn

With us since September 2016

Flynn  

Rehome a Staffie - often overlooked but are wonderful companions - click here to find out more

 

Handsome Flynn is a 5-year-old Staffie-cross with highwayman masks around his eyes - very dashing!

He has not had a good start in life and, as a result, has not had much training, so he needs a family who can do this for him.

He needs to be the only pet in the house, and also needs a lively family as he is lively too!

Please contact Pauline on 07599 969 647 if you could offer a home to Flynn. If there is no answer, leave a message stating which dog you are interested in and giving your name and phone number. Pauline will phone you back. We do not respond to emails about rehoming our animals.

 

 

Max

With us since October 2016

Max

 

Max is a 4-year-old Patterdale who has been with a family for 18 months but now needs to move on through no fault of his own.

He is a typical Patterdale, very loyal and cuddly, but defensive of the outside world. He needs a quiet home where people are willing to work on this with him and are prepared for this defensiveness. He is a lovely boy though, and has been a great friend to his family, and he is the picture of health!

Please contact Pauline on 07599 969 647 if you could offer Max a home. If there is no answer, leave a message stating which dog you are interested in and giving your name and phone number. Pauline will phone you back. We do not respond to emails about rehoming our animals.

 

 

 

Cats needing a home

For advice on how to care for a cat, look at the RSPCA's cat welfare pages.

 

Our cats are neutered, microchipped, de-fleed, wormed and vaccinated prior to rehoming - the adoption fee provides a small contribution towards these costs and saves you having to pay the full cost for these items at your local vets once you get your new pet home (have a look at the typical costs for providing the above treatments and see how much you save).

Before you come to see the cat or kitten that you are interested in, please complete a 'Perfect Match' form and bring it with you.

 

Nyx and Shortcake

Came to us in January 2017

Black Nyx and her white-and-tabby brother, Shortcake (Shortie), are 6 months old and are an adorable pair, friendly, playful, inquisitive - and beautiful. They get along very well and we would like to home them together.

They should be suitable for any type of family, with or without children. They may be able to live with another cat or a friendly dog.

Please call Pam on 01270 811013 if you could offer this lovely pair a home. If there is no answer, leave a message stating which cats you are interested in and giving your name and phone number. Pam will always phone you back. We do not respond to emails about rehoming our animals.
