Re-Homing Procedure for Dogs and Cats
All animals are health checked by a vet. This includes vaccination. All animals will be treated for worms and fleas. The charity also pays for neutering adult dogs and adult cats. Dogs will be microchipped before rehoming. We can also microchip cats for a minimum donation of £10.
We ask for a minimum donation of £85 for an adult dog and £100 for a puppy. This donation goes towards the huge cost of running the Centre
* Once a dog has been identified to suit your lifestyle the whole family will be invited to the Centre. You will be asked to fill out a questionnaire and have a chat with the Animal Care Assistant on duty to answer any questions you may have.
* On completion of the questionnaire you will be introduced to the dog. This meeting takes place in the Centre grounds. Then you are invited to take the dog out for a walk in the local area to allow you to get to know the dog a bit better. We ask that you return to the Centre at least another two times (sometimes more depending on the dog) to walk the dog and get to know them better.
* A home visit is carried out before any dog is placed in the home by either a member of staff or volunteer . This is our opportunity to meet the family in the home and make sure we have answered all your questions. It is also a good opportunity for us to give tips and suggestions on how to introduce a new dog into your home.
* Once the home visit has been carried out we will arrange for a suitable time for you to pick up your new dog. We ask that you bring a collar with id tag and suitable lead with you to take your new dog home.
We ask for a minimum donation of £45 for an adult cat and a minimum of £50 for a kitten. This donation goes towards the cost of running the Centre.
PLEASE NOTE THAT WE DO NOT REHOME CATS AS INDOOR CATS
* At the initial telephone conversation you will be asked various questions to help us identify if we have a cat suitable to your circumstances. If we do, you will be invited to the Centre to meet the cat or cats that we have.
* We operate a 24 hour 'cooling off' period to allow you the time to think about your decision and get organised to bring your new cat home. If after 24 hours you are still committed to your decision, an appointment will be made for you to pick your new cat(s) up.
