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.
I am a new arrival awaiting assessment, further information to follow. I am a 5 year old terrier mix.
Hello I’m Blaze, a handsome very 3 year old male medium mongrel. I am looking for an active, loving home where I will get lots of fuss and belly rubs. Children in the home need to be older so they can be involved in my training. I can have a low tolerance of some dogs so I must be the only dog in the home. I could possibly live with a cat that is used to dogs.

My name is Red and I am an active, attentive and inquisitive 2 year old male Husky. I was rescued from appalling conditions at a puppy farm, confined and unused to human contact. I have been undergoing extensive rehabilitation and though still nervous I am ready to start the process of finding a family to call my own. I will need experienced, patient and very committed people to continue to show me the kindness I need and support my development. I would benefit from living with other dogs but not cats and children would be considered if older. I will have specific needs from a home environment and the ability of the family to continue my rehabilitation. Please research my breed type’s character too.

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!
