How to rehome a pet
Decide if rehoming is for you
Have a look at our animals to see if you find a pet which could be a good match for you.
Register your interest
Click on the profile of an animal you are interested in and complete an application form. Our rehoming team will then contact you within five days to let you know if your application has been successful.
If you are unable to apply online for any reason please call 03000 999 999 and an appointment will be made for you to visit our centre for assistance and to complete the application form on one of our tablets. Appointments will be available Friday to Monday between 1pm and 3.30pm. Please do not attend any of our animal rescue and rehoming centres without an appointment.
Progressing your application
If you are successful, we will arrange to do a home-check with you via video call. We might organise a meet and greet appointment with the animal at our centre in an outdoor space. Due to the limited appointment slots available we will only do this for animals where we have determined there is a need to do so.
