The rehoming process

How to find a suitable cat or dog for rehoming

We suggest you contact us by phone for details of any cats awaiting rehoming, since the Cat Team will have the most up to date information.  At present there will be very few, if any, dogs awaiting rehoming due to the problems in finding foster homes, as explained earlier on this website.

Cost of rehoming a dog or cat

If it is agreed that you can take a dog, we will ask for a donation which will depend on the age and breed of the animal.  The prices being asked for dogs have been escalating in the last couple of years, but we try to ask for a fair price, which is likely to be much less than the figure asked by some individuals who offer dogs for sale.  The donation will go towards the cost of looking after dogs (i.e. fostering and veterinary bills). We do not sell dogs and cats for profit – our aim is to find good owners who can provide a suitable home for them.

We only rehome dogs which have been microchipped, since this is the responsibility of the current owner.  If we rehome a microchipped dog, we can arrange for the new owner’s details to be updated on the appropriate database.  Cats will normally be spayed or neutered, but we expect the owner of a dog to pay for spaying or neutering if this becomes desirable.

A donation for rehoming a cat is by arrangement with the cat team.

Adoption forms

In the case of cats, a house check will be required initially. For dogs, the owner will normally be visited after the dog has settled in, usually within a month of rehoming. When we are satisfied that all is well, we ask the new owner to sign an Adoption Form, which transfers the legal ownership of the animal from the Society to the new owner.
