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


Hope is a medium sized, older girl,of about 9 years of age.
She is a little nervous of walking on the lead at the moment but is really very friendly so we don't think she'll be long before she's walking out with our volunteers.
Hope has had mammary tumours removed earlier in the year and has a couple of little lumps which we are going to monitor.
She is absolutely adorable and will make someone the perfect companion.

Hope has come from Romania -she really deserves the BEST home after all shes been through!!
Can you find space in your home for this lovely lass.

(RAW will provide the vet treatment if she needs any more lumps removed)

Oscar hasn't got a nobbly back- its his markings!!!

Oscar is a 2 year old SBT who was a stray.
He is a very friendly, fussy lad and loves a tummy tickle!!!
He was smashing travelling to the vets and while being examined.
He hasn't been tested around other dogs yet but was friendly with a spaniel in the vets.
Oscar has chewed his plastic bed so perhaps will need training out of this-or he could very well grow out of it!
( or is he just bored in kennels??)
A Trainer will be provided for help, if needed.

Georgina has unfortunately been returned to our care.
She has separation anxiety which will need time and patience to help her overcome.
She is a really friendly, loving girl who can sit, give paw & she is really good on the lead.
Georgina needs someone who can enforce boundaries.We will provide a trainer for guidance in her new home.
Georgina hasn't had a good start in life. Can you provide the training and stability she needs?


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?

Max & Milly (MILLY has been rehomed)

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!!!

Update-Milly has found her new home so now its Max's turn. Can you offer him a comfy fireside before Christmas???
