Currently, we have a temporary new rehoming process which involves minimum contact in line with the government restrictions. This process has been approved by the government and is as follows:

  • Complete the online enquiry form i.e. click on ‘ENQUIRE ABOUT ME’ displayed underneath the photo of the dog or cat you are interested in.
  • Once your enquiry has been processed, you will receive an e-mail or phone call from the re-homing team to give you some more information about the animal you are interested in.
  • You will be asked to provide a video showing your home & garden e.g. height of fencing, cat flap etc. We will talk you through what is required.
  • Once approved, further instruction will be provided & a date organised for the meeting, you will be able to meet dogs at the Sanctuary, however our cattery remains closed for viewing, so a video link will be used.
  • All paperwork will be sent to you electronically for completion.
  • You will collect your dog or cat from the Sanctuary, an experienced member of staff, will ensure all social distancing guidelines are adhered to.
  • You will receive on-going support from the Sanctuary and a post home visit will be carried out when current restrictions have been lifted.
  • We will be available to provide additional advice and support by telephone.

Please Note:  Potential adopters must live within one hour’s drive of the Sanctuary, and we are unable to adopt animals to homes where a member of the household is showing symptoms of Covid-19 or is self-isolating because of an underlying medical condition.
