    Our current adoption process

    Having received guidance from the government and the Association of Dogs and Cats Homes (ADCH), we will be restarting our dog and cat adoptions with a few changes to our usual process.

    Who can adopt at this time?

    We will be accepting applications to adopt from people who meet the following criteria:

    • You own or have access to a smart phone or tablet, which is portable and has video calling capabilities.
    • You have not been advised by the NHS to shield.

    What animals are available for adoption?

    We have both cats and dogs available for adoption. We will also be adding new animals to the website when they are ready.

    What is the adoption process? 

    The adoption process will be done remotely.

    Step one
    Take a look at our dogs and cats to see whether there is one that you like and that you meet the requirements for.

    Step two
    Fill out either a dog application form or a cat application form.

    Step three
    If you are a suitable candidate for the animal you have applied for, you will be called by a member of our adoption team for a telephone interview.

    Step four
    If your telephone interview is successful, we will arrange a ‘video call home visit’. During this video call, we will need you to show us around your house and garden to ensure that it’s suitable for the animal. We will also arrange an animal ‘meeting’ by video call so that you can see the animal and they can hear your voice.

    Step five 
    We will take the payment of your adoption fee over the phone and arrange a time for you to come and collect your new best friend from the garden at our Home.

    We will carry out a post-adoption home visit.
