Due to current Covid-19 restrictions we are not having visitors at the rescue. All adoptions will be organised remotely and handovers will be done following physical distancing guidelines.
How to Adopt
If you are interested in adopting any of the small animals in our care then please get in touch. You are welcome to come out and meet the critters currently with us and discuss the suitability of the animal that you're keen to bring into your home.
If it seems that this animal will be a good fit then we can then make arrangements for you to take them home. Any animal that is rehomed will always be welcome back here at the rescue if it doesn't work out for any reason. Of course we hope this won't be the case but we understand that your own circumstances may change.
We do not charge a set adoption fee for the animals that we re-home, however we do suggest a donation to go towards the rescue and veterinary expenses accrued whilst in our care.
Rabbits are especially costly for us as we neuter and vaccinate all that come through our doors before sending them out to new homes.
Questions we will ask...
What experience do you have of caring for this animal?
We will want to gauge what experience you have and how much research you have done if it's your first timing owning this pet. All small animals have different needs, and you should be aware of these before planning to bring an animal into your home.
We are always happy to advise on care and point you towards good resources for all species of small animals, so don't be afraid to get in touch if you'd like some guidance on where to start your research.
Do you have an enclosure and supplies all ready?
It is important to have a cage or enclosure that is large enough for the small pet that you're looking to adopt. We promote minimum cage sizes that are in-line with current care standards for all the small animals that we re-home.
We will ask for pictures of your enclosure, and may suggest changes if we think this would improve the set-up. Please do not feel intimated by this, everyone has to start somewhere in regards to pet care, and we will always be kind and pragmatic whilst making suggestions.
Help and Resources
We are in the process of making a set of informative documents covering the basic aspects of care for the animals that we rehome.
So far this will include rabbits, hamsters and rats, however there will be more to follow.
Now that you've had a read of our policies, head over to the page 'Animals for Rehoming' to see who we had currently looking for their forever homes.
