Adoption Process
  • Step 1: If you see a dog you like then please make an appointment to meet them.
  • Step 2: Once you have met and decided to adopt a dog a home check will be arranged.
  • Step 3: Once your home check has passed the adoption is then completed and you can pick up your new family member!
Fees & What's Included

Our adoption fees are £130 for dogs and £65 for cats.
All dogs are:
  • Vaccinated
  • Microchipped
  • Neutered
  • Wormed
  • Come with 4 weeks free insurance

If any of the above are not complete upon adoption vouchers covering their full cost will be issued. The adoption fee covers some of these vet costs - the rest is covered by fund raising.

Adoption Requirements
  • A part of your garden must be enclosed and secure. A minimum 4ft fence/wall is required, depending on the size and nature of the dog this may be higher.
  • Dogs can not be left on their own for more than 5 hours on a regular basis.
  • Dogs must not be left to sleep outside at night or during the winter.
  • If we know a dog is friendly with cats this will be specified below. If this is not specified then the dog will not be re-homed with cats.

All our dogs are regularly walked by our band of volunteers

BOW (female)

Bow is an excitable Terrier X of about 2 years of age.
She has also come from the stray kennels where she had been overlooked.
Shes a very friendly girl and likes to sit on your knee.

      Bow will make a lovely pet for an energetic this yours???

Bow has recently been spayed & had a hernia op. She stayed with Tanya while she recovered.
Tanya says she's such a friendly, gorgeous girl, who likes a fuss but likes to go into a crate or on her bed for some chill out time!!
I think its safe to say Bow wriggled her way into Tanya's heart & she's found it ever so difficult to hand her back!!

Chester really enjoyed his muddy walk with Phillip this morning!!

Chester is a crossbreed of approximately 3 years old.
Sadly Chester has not had a good start in life and was recently physically abused by a man with a stick which has resulted in him being nervous of some men until he gets to know them.
Chester is brilliant with females and fabulous with men he knows once they have gained his trust. He doesn't always like other dogs.
Due to this Chester would need a quiet home with no children or other pets.
Please do not be put off by this description Chester genuinely is a fantastic dog who will make the right owners a loving, lifelong companion.

Casper is only 12 months old and found himself in the stray kennels.
He is a very fussy, friendly boy who doesn't like being left so we are looking for a home with someone around most of the time and a home where he will be the sole dog.
Casper really needs to learn some manners around other dogs- we don't think he has had any training.
He tends to lunge towards other dogs at the moment and some don't really like this-Natalie is working with Casper to improve this and he is learning well!!
Natalie says that Casper really likes to walk on his own- he doesn't like them 'invading his space'
Casper ignores other dogs when out walking, walks straight past them and is walking well on the lead.
As you can see from the photo he loves walking out with Natalie and always has a chill out 10 minutes with her!
Natalie will endevour to be available for any prospective owners to chat to and take Casper out for a walk with on their appointment.

 The services of a trainer will be provided if needed.
Can you give this energetic young boy a chance....he really shouldn't be in rescue!!

Please consider a Staffy or Staffy cross when looking to adopt a dog.
They are always overlooked due to negative portrayal and due to this sad fact many are left behind in rescues and the stray kennels. 
Despite misconceptions the Staffordshire Bull Terrier is a loyal, loving and reliable breed.

Blade is an 8 year old Jack Russell terrier.

We are looking for a home without children and preferably with experience of the breed.

When in a home, he is very loving with adults but tries to dominate any other dogs.
He also wants to 'guard' his owner and has nipped.

Blade walks well with our other dogs but will have to be introduced to any new dogs carefully -he just needs an experienced owner to show him his boundaries.

A trainer will be on hand for a new owner, if they need any advice.

Blade will thrive in the right home-do you have the time for this loveable chap?
