We are delighted that Defra has given approval for us to rehome and foster animals in England again!
We have introduced new temporary processes and checks to ensure that the animal and adopter or fosterer are well matched and protected. Animals will be safely delivered to their new homes in a secure way by our staff or volunteers.
How the rehoming process will be different
In line with Defra-approved guidance for England, animal centres will remain closed to the public and our new, temporary rehoming and fostering process will involve:
Finding an animal, completing our form online or telephone the branch and leave a message.
All adopters or fosterers must live within about an hour's drive of the centre where the animal is being cared for
All discussions will take place via phone or video call
Adopters and fosterers will get to 'virtually meet' their potential pet with videos sent to show them their behaviour and give them a deeper understanding of their pet's personality
Home visits will be done virtually, through photos or video walk-through the home
All pets will be transported to their new homes and handovers will observe social distancing
PLEASE NOTE THAT WE CAN ONLY REHOME ANIMALS LOCALLY IN OUR AREA
