Adoptions during Lockdown
Due to the current lock down situation and following both government guidelines and those issued by the Association of Dogs & Cats Homes we want to keep you updated with our current situation and our current adoption procedures.
The Sanctuary continues to stay closed to the general public to protect both visitors and our staff from coming into contact with each other to minimise risk. We are still operating with a skeleton team on site, still rescuing animals who need us, working extra hard to ensure all of our animals continue to receive the highest level of care. Our reduced office staff continue to answer phones and emails and are responding to enquiries as soon as possible.
With this in mind we have considered the feasibility for us to rehome our cats and dogs at this time. With the aid of virtual home checks, skype interviews and our usual checks and application forms, in individual cases we may be able to rehome some of our rescues. We would ask that all potential adopters please visit our animal rehoming pages and if they see a specific cat or dog they feel would be the right fit for their family, please contact our rehoming team at firstname.lastname@example.org for more information and to assess whether they may be the right match for you. When our kittens have had their first vet check they will also be on our website, so please do follow this process for kittens too.
Once we have received your email we will send you an application form to begin the rehoming process. Please note the majority of our animals on site will not be able to be rehomed until lock down has ended as many will need to meet you on site prior to adoption with our staff. If you have other pets in the home we would need to do a social visit with those animals, and these cannot be accommodated at the moment. Please bear with us as we learn to navigate through these new procedures and know we'll treat all adoptions on a case by case basis. We care about our cats and dogs deeply, so of course we want to find them their forever home, but we have to be thorough as having our animals come back to us due to an incompatible match would be devastating for them.
In a time like this, please know that we need your support more than ever. We are still rescuing cats and dogs, some of which you'll read about below, but with our Summer events cancelled we are struggling financially. Thank you all for your support and understanding as always. xx
