Rehome a pet
Giving people the support and knowledge they need to treat animals with care and respect
My name is Bella and I am a one year old Beagle X. I can be shy when I first meet people, but when I''ve made friends I am a happy lively dog. I will need a home that has had experience of Beagles or Hound types. I love most other dogs and have lived with a boisterous cockapoo who was my best friend. I need a VERY secure garden and a family that has lots of time and energy to spend with me. I could possibly tolerate confident cats!
I’m Benji, a nervous little male Jack Russell cross aged about 18 months. Once I know people I’m a real sweetie, affectionate and playful but you have to win my trust first and I am particularly scared of men. I love my walks and enjoy meeting other dogs, though I am not so keen on cats! I need a calm, adult only home with people who enjoy the terrier character and will show me the patience and understanding I need please.
My name is Blu and I am a 2 year old female Husky (3/4) x Malamute (1/4). I’d make a great companion if you’re training for a marathon!! I need a home that can provide me with the level of activity I need, I love to run and have a busy mind ! I will need training too and potential adopters should research my breed type well to ensure they can provide for my needs and understand my character. I could maybe live with older children and other dogs would be considered based on personality match. No cats thank you and a secure garden is a must.
I’m Bumble, a cheeky little 4 months old female Mongrel. I’m full of energy and really clever so will need a home able to keep me busy otherwise I could become unhappy and frustrated. My strong character means I can be difficult to handle at times. I’d love to be involved in agility, flyball, trick training, scent work...I love to learn! I am not suited to a family with young children and will need an experienced home able to meet my high level of on-going commitment to training. Dogs and cats in the home would be considered based on personality match.
My name is Edwina, I am a 10 months old female Schnauzer cross. I have been enjoying my training whilst in kennels, I am clever and like having plenty of activity to keep me from mischief! I’m lively and busy and will need an active home that can commit to continuing my training and ensure I am not bored! I am not suited to live with cats but I could maybe live with older children. I need continued training around other dogs to help develop my social skills. Please research my breed type, I have a big character and need support to continue my development.
Hi, I’m Finn, a handsome stripy male Lurcher aged about 8 months. I love to run and play, I need training and will try hard to learn but can be quiet boisterous and I have these long gangly legs to control!! I like playing with other dogs as long as they can put up with me and I could live with confident older children that can be involved in my training. No cats thank you!
Hello my names Frankie, and I’m a 5 year old staffy x Labrador. I am very strong and don’t realise my own strength, I am looking for a very active home to join. I am very full on when meeting dogs so need careful introductions, I am looking for a home where I will be the only dog. I could live with a confident cat but children in the home need to be calm and older. Anyone interested in offering me a home would need to have had bull breed experience in the past.
Hello, I’m Loki, a handsome 4 ½ year old male Husky. I’m friendly and love going running! I prefer dogs that are the same size as me but no cats thank you! I could live with older children and am looking for an active family that will allow me to be involved in adventures and fun with them! Please research my breed type’s character and needs to ensure you can provide the required environment and level of exercise to keep me happy.
I’m Margot, a pretty 3 year old female Staffie. I am really polite, I like making friends and going for strolls! Unfortunately I am not keen on other dogs and cannot live with cats. Children in the home need to be used to dogs and older. I’m a happy, waggy dog who likes being part of everything that is going on!
I’m Mowgli, a handsome little 6 months old male Lurcher. I’m lovable and cheeky, love to play and bounce! I like playing with other dogs and could possably live a confident cat that is used to dogs. I could live with confident older children who would enjoy helping with my training.
Hello, I’m Rio, a large male Spaniel aged 7 years, though I act like a youngster still!! I am really friendly but can be bouncy and excitable. I am also strong on the lead, always in a hurry to get places! I love going exploring on walks and have lots of energy so like to be busy. I like other dogs and children and could possibly live with a cat.
My name is Rosie and I’m a busy 2 year old female mongrel (small/ medium, maybe Corgi cross?!). I’m a bit of a hunter and like chasing things so will need good control from owners to ensure I don’t get up to mischief!! I’m Ok with other dogs but not cats and children in the home need to be older.
I’m Tammy, an 8 months old female large mongrel (maybe Ridgeback/ Boxer?). I’ve had a rough time of life and will need patient, understanding people to help continue my training. I am eager to learn and am already starting to flourish with the correct support. I was really scared of strangers but have been learning to make friends and now enjoy interacting. I’m learning to mix with other dogs and have learnt to play. I have not been cat tested yet. I’m a bouncy young dog and will need an active home able to manage my size and strength once fully grown.
Hello my names Teddy and I am a scruffy 2 year old male terrier mix (Lakeland type??). I am partially sighted and will require eye drops for the rest of my life. I am determined not to let this spoil my enjoyment of life. I have a cheeky, independent character and need a home that will enjoy my terrier personality... I can be stubborn at times too but am adorable with it!! I am not so keen on other dogs due to having poor sight, but i am learning to walk with calm dogs so hopefully this can be worked on with time and patience. I become defensive to protect myself as I cannot tell if they are friendly or not. I’m not suited to live with cats or small furries, I have the terrier desire to hunt! I need an adult only home that has researched my breed type and understands my needs, also that can provide plenty of squeaky toys as they are my favourite!!
Hi, my name is Whistle and I am a mischievous 2 year old male Yorkie cross. I need a family with plenty of energy and who will enjoy my strong terrier character. I love to run and play and am an accomplished escape artist! I can be feisty with some other dogs and am not so good with small furry creatures. I could live with sensible older children. I do enjoy a cuddle but will need a home able to meet my high energy needs.
My name is Wizbit and I am a 4 year old male Lurcher (medium). I can be a little shy at first when meeting people but quickly make friends, love cuddles and playing with tennis balls! I am generally social with other dogs but not cats, I like to chase small furries! I get really worried when left alone and need a more experienced home that is able to work on my training and have researched my breed type. I’m a handsome little Lurcher who has had a tough time previously but I can offer you my devotion and will be a great walking companion.
Hello my name is Zippy, a lively 1 year old male Jack Russell. I am looking for active terrier loving home to call my own with no cats that can keep me busy as I like to be on the go. You need to be experienced as I need full training so children in the home would need to be older. I have very recently been neutered but would be unsuitable to live with another dog at present as I was very oversexed.
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 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!
