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 is a crossbreed of approximately 18 months 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.
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.

Bertie is a lurcher around 3-4 years old. He is very energetic and playful!
He is good with other dogs and children although due to his size
and very lively and bouncy nature would be better suited to a family with older children.
He is a very loving dog who loves attention from everyone!
He is a very quick learner and knows most basic commands
like sit, lie down, paw, stay etc and will do pretty much anything for a treat.
 He is fully house trained and loves his toys, he'll play fetch with you all day long!
Bertie loves to run and so requires someone with plenty of time to walk him.

Bertie is not in our kennels but in a foster home so contact

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.
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.
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.

Diesel likes a tummy tickle!!

Look at that lovely smile- Thank you for saving me!

Diesel has just come from the pound where he found herself when his owner became ill.
He is a small terrier type dog and is very friendly.
He is about 7 years old and is a real character.
 We think he will be a very loving companion.
He has also lived with another dog. (Sheba)
Diesel has had all his vaccinations so is now going out walking with our volunteers - he is already a hit with them!
Can you give this lovely chap the loving home he deserves?
