This is Arthur an older Rats dog who has come back into kennels because his elderly owner has had to go into hospital after a fall and has unfortunately died  Arthur is a gentle dog who walks well on a lead and is very people friendly, and made a great companion for his elderly owner, unfortunately he is not doing well in kennels as he is used to being at home with his owner, so we have found him a temporary foster home. Arthur does not like being left as he is used to someone being around most of the day and we are looking for a kind person who will be around most of the day to keep him company if you would like to offer Arthur his forever home please contact  Julie on 01763 289827 or Alternatively please email Philippa at             who will be pleased to forward your enquiry onto the team.

The Adoption Process

We have a number of animals in our care. Most are homeless through no fault
of their own and are looking for new homes and owners who can give them the attention they deserve.

Please take a few moments to familiarise yourself with our adoption procedure:

  • Step 1: The animal is admitted into our care, and assessed by our team.
  • Step 2: The animal is examined by a vet, who treats any ailments or injuries. 
  • Step 3: The appropriate team leader will liaise with the potential adopter to assist with their choice of animal.
  • Step 4: The potential new owners meet the animal, and decide if they want to adopt. New owners may be asked to visit the animal several times before the adoption takes place.
  • Step 5: A pre-adoption home visit will then be made to new owners premises to meet the members of the household and to ensure that the environment is right.
    Step 6: If the visit goes well you will be asked to collect the animal and for an adoption donation ( amount on request ) and to sign an agreement to care for the pet with a commitment to return it to us if you can't continue to do so.
