Step one: Register to adopt
At the end of this step-by-step you will be able to download our adoption forms, which you will need to fill in and return to us (by post or email – full details are provided on the forms).
When filling out the form we will need to know things like – if you live in a house or flat, if you own your property or rent it, your work schedule, and more. This is so we can do our best to find the right match for you and the animals we care for.
If you rent your home, you will need to submit proof of permission from your landlord to have pets. This can be a letter, either from the landlord directly or from the council/housing association. We will also accept a tenancy agreement if it clearly states that pets are permitted in the property. However, if you already have a pet at this property additional confirmation will be required to confirm that you are allowed multiple pets.
Please get this evidence as soon as you are ready to adopt and before submitting an application form as you won’t be able to place a reserve on an animal until these documents have been provided.
When the form is complete, please send it to our rehoming team via email or post. When emailing your form if it has successfully gone through, you will receive an automatic response acknowledging that we have received it. If this hasn’t appeared after a few minutes of sending, please be sure to check your junk mail.
If you can’t download the form, or you have specific access requirements, please contact us and we will pop a form out in the post to you. We can also assist you on the phone, but we kindly ask that you use the online form if you are able.
If you are thinking of moving, changing jobs or going on holiday soon, it would be best to register with us at a later date.
