Rita is a  Staffie cross Mastiff and is a bouncy, excitable and exuberant young lady. She has an endless abundance of energy and a wonderful zest for life.

Rita came into our care as her owner’s working situation has unfortunately changed recently. She is understandably devastated to have no choice but to part ways with Rita, but this adorable pupster is in very safe hands with Julie and the rest of the RATS Family.

As she’s just a puppy, Rita will need lots of training, and the dedication and level of commitment required, particularly with a dog the size that she will grow to become, should not be taken lightly. She’s very cute and friendly but as she’s still learning the ropes and boundaries, she’s lively and boisterously playful. With this in mind, we are looking for an adult only home. Rita really loves other dogs but has never lived with a cat before.

We are expecting to receive lots of enquiries about Rita and as a small team of volunteers, we may not be able to personally respond to everyone. So please accept our apologies in advance if we don’t get back to you. We will not be rehoming Rita on a first come first served basis, and all enquiries will be very carefully considered to make sure that she finds her pawfect new family.

If you can offer this lovely girl the home she desperately needs please contact Julie on 01763 289827

Alternatively please email Philippa at info.rats@gmail.com             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.
