    Our 'Home from Home' scheme

    Cats and dogs find themselves needing new homes for a whole range of reasons. It can be a stressful time for both the animal and the owner. We provide a few options for owners looking for help. One such option is our ‘Home from Home’ scheme, which helps animals stay with their owners whilst we find them a new home.

    What are the benefits of the ‘Home from Home’ scheme?

    Kennel and cattery environments can be very stressful for any animal. This scheme allows the animal to stay in a loving home until a new one is found. It also frees up more space at Mayhew for other animals. Some owners like that they can meet potential adopters at their home and they can also find out where their pet will be living. It also allows the potential adopter to find out more about the animal's personality from the owner.

    How does the scheme work?

    If a dog or cat needs rehoming, the owner fills out a detailed questionnaire about them. Dogs will then be assessed for behaviour in their home by our kennels team. All animals receive a thorough vet check at our Community Vet Clinic. They are also vaccinated, neutered and microchipped. Once they are ready for adoption, we create a profile for the animal on our website. Any potential adopters will speak with our Adoption Officers to ensure they are a good match. They are then able to come and meet the animal in their home. If the visit is successful, the potential adopter will also receive a home visit.

    How can I arrange for my animal to be rehomed via this scheme?
