Rehome a pet
Giving people the support and knowledge they need to treat animals with care and respect
My name is Alfie and I am a 5 year old Cavalier King Charles. I am a loving boy but although I look cute I have severe possession issues, so potential new owners would definitely need to have experience of dealing correctly with this. If handled properly and positively I will be a good and loyal boy. I have lived with cats, and can be nervous of larger dogs. I need to live in an adult only home as you can see I have issues, but I am waiting for a knowledgeable home that will help me overcome these.
Hello I’m Clarabell, a sweet natured 10 year old female Labrador. I am looking for a home where I will get lots of fuss and cuddles as being on a diet is not much fun.

Each year we receive some 1500 new animals at Raystede. For many of them what they most need is a loving home where they can make a fresh start. When we rehome an animal, our job is a bit like a dating agency, finding the best match between each animal and their possible future owner.
Every animal has different characteristics and habits which may or may not fit with your home life. That is why at Raystede we take such special care to get to know every animal before rehoming.
For example, for our dogs and cats we use a traffic light system which gives valuable information about the needs of each dog, both to our visitors and volunteers. Only then does the matchmaking begin!
