How to adopt an animal Each animal that comes into the branch is treated like the individual they are. Our behaviour and welfare adviser works closely with the animal care team to assess each dog and cat, to ensure we find them their perfect home. Our Adoption process: Check out our dogs and cats looking for a new home, when you see one that you think is right for you, please download the relevant form below, then just complete and return this to us at [email protected] DOG Perfect Match Form dogperfectmatchform.doc or CAT Perfect Match Form We look at all the completed forms sent to us. If the pet is still available and we think you could be a good match, we will contact you within 48 hours to have a chat and tell you more about them and arrange a home visit. Unfortunately, due to the large number of interest we receive, we are not always able to contact you if you have been unsuccessful on this occasion. The home visit is a great way for you to find out more about your chosen animal and ask any questions you may have about their needs. After the home visit, we will invite you to come and meet your potential new pet. We ask adopters to meet dogs a minimum of three times, and cats twice before taking them home. How much does it cost? We ask you to pay a donation towards the cost of your pet’s care and veterinary treatment during their stay with us. On average it costs is £175 to care for a cat, and £250 to care for a dog. This includes a thorough veterinary health check, vaccinations, microchip, neuter, food and enrichment. Dog £175 Puppy up to 6 months: £230 Senior Dog: £80 Cat: £80 Kitten up to 6 months: £100 Senior Cat: £60 Post Adoption Support. When you take your new pet home, that’s not the end of the journey for us. Our animal care team will be on hand to help you settle your new pet in.
