Please complete a 'Request to give up an animal' form to tell us about your animal. If you would prefer to speak with a member of our Rehoming Team, please call 01825 880468 (8:30am to 4:30pm, seven days a week).
Once we have agreed to accept your animal, we will book an appointment with our Rehoming Team to tell us more about your animal and complete the paperwork.
The more detail you can give us the better to ensure we find the most suitable new home. We like to receive copies of your animal’s vaccination card and a health history from your vet.
We also encourage you bring along some of your animal’s personal belongings to help them settle in at the centre.
As Raystede is a charity, some people choose to make a donation to help towards their animal’s care. Whatever you feel able to give is very gratefully received, thank you.
During your animal's stay with us, our dedicated team of staff and volunteers will ensure they receive the best possible care. A mixture of home comforts, quiet-time, and positive interaction, such as walks, playtime, grooming and cuddles, is essential. All animals have a thorough behaviour and medical assessment before we start looking for their ideal new home.
“Thank you for loving and looking after my dog. I really appreciate everything you’ve done for him. He was a truly lovely, remarkable, loyal companion.”
