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


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.

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?

RESERVED subject to home check

Prince is a very small Staffordshire Bull Terrier who found himself in the pound.
He is between 2-3 years of age & is a real giddy kipper when he first meets you! But what a lovely friendly lad.
He was friendly with the dogs he met at the vets & isn't bothered by any on the barking dogs at the kennels.
He was a bit vocal in the car at first , but settled down after a while-he's possibly not done too much travelling in a car!
Can you find room in your home for this lovable lad??

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.

Frosty is about 9 months old and originally came from Romania.
He has lived with a family but think he would be better with a home with no children or older children.
He loves playing with other dogs and is getting good at recall.
Frosty doesn't like to be let for long so we are looking for someone who is around most of the time.
Also Frosty needs to have firm boundaries & to learn where he is in the hierarchy of his new home.
We will help with a trainer to help him & his new owner with this if one is needed.
If you are interested in Frosty please fill in a form & Jenny will contact you for a chat prior to your visit.Thank you.

The puppies are all 4/5 months old. they are absolutely gorgeous- we don't think they will grow very big.

All are very friendly but will need lead training and possibly house training.

Max and Milly are brother & sister.

They are 3 year old greyhounds that haven't had much training.

They are nervous but are now coming out of their shells.

They have been out walking this week with Natalie & Laura and are coming on in leaps and bounds, gaining in confidence all the time. These two deserve the very best homes...have you room in your family for Milly or Max....or both!!!
