Adoption & care guides

To ensure you are applying for the perfect pet to fit your lifestyle and requirements we have some handy adoption and care guides available.

Please click on the relevant link and you will find some in depth information about the animal you are interested in, including what to expect during your adoption journey, animals’ housing requirements and adoption fees. Many of the animals we have available for adoption have long life spans and it is a big decision when welcoming any animal into your family. It is also important to consider the financial commitment an animal will require in the form of insurance, vaccinations, and ongoing health checks to keep them happy and healthy.

If you have any questions, they should be answered in the following adoption and care guides but if you need any further assistance please do contact us. We are here to help.

We rely on your donations to help animals like Topsy.

When Topsy arrived with us, he was severely underweight and needed a lot of care. We couldn't help the amount of animals we do without your support. Please donate to help more animals get the care they deserve.
