We often rescue animals who are in need of permanent homes. Before we do this, we will put them in a safe foster space, to ensure they get all the care and medical attention they need to be ready for their future home. We have a lot of cats/kittens in foster from our TNR (Trap, Neuter, Release) days - if the cats/kittens are not fully feral, we will get them a foster space and a future home. If a dog does not have a chip and completes their stray time, we may also take them into foster and help find their future home.

At times, we do have animals surrendered to us, in the hopes of finding them a new home. We treat all animals the same and go through a process to ensure both foster and future adoptive homes are right for both the pet and the family.

To foster or rehome a pet with us, please fill in the appropriate form (foster/rehome) and contact us via Facebook to complete your home check. 

What do we look for in a potential foster or adoptive home?

First and foremost, animal lovers! We want to ensure our pets are getting the best care possible when they get their foster or forever home. We also look to ensure that the home is safe and secure and for a dog, that there is a secure garden area for them to go out to. 

For fostering, are my expenses covered?

Yes - we cover the fees of all food, veterinary care and other essentials.

For fostering, how long will I foster for?

Fostering is a commitment of up to four months. Please only foster an animal if you are able to commit - moving a foster animal is not only disruptive for them (especially as some come after being abandoned), but can be difficult or at times impossible for us to find an alternative foster space. 

For adopting, what fees are involved?

The fee to adopt a cat/kitten is £60 and dog/puppy £120. This helps to contribute towards the cost of all the veterinary care, vaccinations, microchipping and neutering/spaying we have given them. 

What treatment/care will the pets come with?

All animals that come into our care are given a full health check, followed by appropriate vaccinations, microchipping and neutering/spaying (once old enough). We liase with the foster/adoptive home as needed to facilitate this treatment. 

For rehoming, will I get my pet straight away?

This will vary case to case. We facilitate meets for each pet to ensure that this is right for both the family and pet, as face to face can be very different to online! We will then ensure any current treatment is fulfilled. We will keep you up to date each step of the way as to the stage of your application.
