Thinking of adopting one of our animals?Our Branch is dedicated to finding the best ‘forever’ home for each of our animals. Their species, personality, age, health and background are all considered carefully. We seek to find them each a home where they will live a happy and healthy life and be able to express their natural behaviour. We embrace the ‘Five Freedoms’ set out in the Animal Welfare Act 2006. Although our re-homing procedures are designed to guard against mismatched animals, if the animal doesn't settle in their new home, the RSPCA will ask for his/her return in order to find a more compatible alternative home.
- If you would like to re-home one of our animals following a viewing, please contact the rehoming coordinator. The animal will then be reserved in your name.
- A home visit will be carried out by one of our qualified home visitors. This will be organised via a telephone call to ensure that the visit is at your convenience. Should the home visit be successful, we will provide information regarding the adoption process.
- The animal will have a full health check by our vet before leaving the cattery to ensure that it is fit and healthy.
- A donation to the RSPCA (we ask for a minimum donation of £55 for cats and kittens) is required from you at the time the adoption paperwork is completed. This donation helps to offset some of the costs of the following:
- Flea & worming treatment
- Micro-chipping (for identification)
- Veterinary Health check
- Cattery fees
- 6 weeks free pet insurance
Purpose of the Homevisits
- Our animals are our first concern. We seek to find home environments which are suitable for each specific animal’s needs.
- All home visits are carried out in accordance with nationally agreed RSPCA guidelines.
- They provide the Branch the opportunity to discuss the proposed adoption with the entire family in the comfort of their own home and offer the home visitor the opportunity to answer questions with regard to the animal’s needs and care requirements.
- They allow us to provide information, advice and resources to assist in the event the visit is successful and the adoption process is approved to go forward.
