Our Animals

Remember – all animals require a great deal of commitment. Please think carefully about your lifestyle and long term plans before you consider adding any kind of animal to your household. Will you have enough time to cater for its individual needs? Can you provide appropriate care for the animal when you are planning your holidays? Can you afford the cost of routine veterinary care and the occasional emergency? These are just a few of the things we advise you to consider before going ahead with any adoption and an example of the kinds of questions we will ask when you decide to choose a pet from our Centre. Click here to read some more information about rehoming and adoption.

Once you have chosen a suitable animal, we will then arrange for one of our experienced volunteers to visit you at home to check that you have the necessary facilities in place to care for the animal safely and appropriately and to give you the opportunity to ask any other questions you may have thought of since reserving your potential new pet.

There is an adoption fee for all our animals so please ask a member of staff to advise you of the cost of the animal you are interested in during your visit. Our adoption charges include the cost of neutering, vaccinating, and microchipping your animal in addition to routine treatments such as worming, and parasite prevention.

Elf is a lovely lad, he was originally a stray and would have been at risk of being PTS. Elf is a very shy boy and needs a patient and understanding home with people that have had dogs before, ideally nervous dogs. Elf gets a lot of his confidence from being around another dog so we do want him to go and live with a well matched friend in his new home. As Elf is a shy boy and we have no previous history we do advise children from 12 years. He would also prefer a quieter home as a busy household is more likely to be too much for him. Elf is such a sweetheart and with some TLC will become a great addition to his new home, he just needs time.
