The Rehoming Process

We are delighted you have found your perfect match!

Whether you are rehoming a horse or a cat, all rehoming requires a pre-booked appointment.

Once you have booked your appointment you will:

  • Be invited to visit the centre during a pre-booked appointment. You might need to visit a few times to get to know your potential new pet, but it is really worth the wait so please be patient. Staff at the centre will be on-hand to discuss any questions you may have.

  • Be able to spend time with your potential new pet. If it is a dog you are looking to rehome, you can take the dog for a walk around our on-site exercise field and play with them in our rehabilitation room. If it is a cat, you will be able to sit with them in one of our cat pens so that you can get to know each other.

  • Be able to fill out a reservation form. Within the form you will be asked for more information regarding your home situation, including your lifestyle, to ensure that you are well-matched with each other.  We do require a letter from your landlord should you live in rented accommodation.

Once you have found your perfect match, we may ask to meet the whole family and possibly arrange a home visit. This could include a home visit to check the garden as in most cases pets need access to a garden.


After your visit, we normally advise you to take some time to reflect on the decision and prepare for the adoption. In some circumstances you may be able to rehome on the same day.


Once required steps are taken, you are officially ready to rehome! We will then go through the rehoming paperwork with you which includes: 4 weeks free insurance (for the majority of rescue animals), top tips on how to care for your new pet and official rehoming documents.
