We want to find the perfect home for our animals and the perfect animal for you. Our process may work slightly differently to what you may expect. We have laid out our adoption process step by step below so you know just what to expect:
1. Please fill in a Perfect Match Form.
2. We will then take time to chat with you about what you would like, find out a little about your lifestyle and the home you are able to offer.
3. If we think we have a possible match, one of our adoption support volunteers will pop along to see you at home.
4. We would then like to invite you in to discuss any potential matches we have at the centre - and chat through their personalities with you.
5. The next stage is a bit like a first date – where you’ll meet your potential match, learn a little more about them and see if it’s love at first sight.
6. If everything goes well, you might like a second date…..
7. You'll come in for a final chat, we'll go through the paperwork and process the adoption fee, and then you can take your new family member home!
Our adoption package for cats and dogs is as follows and includes;
Flee / worming treatment
£25 To spend at our shop for animal essentials
£100 for a single cat
£125 for a kitten
£200 for a pair of cats
£250 for a pair of kittens
£225 for a dog*
£325 for a puppy
*Our adoption fee for our unique and wonderful dogs is £200. However, on occasion, dogs who prove to be extremely popular come with a slightly higher adoption fee. This is to support the animals who are longer staying guests, or have costly medical requirements. Our animals receive the best possible care during their stay with us and the cost of their care is always beyond the adoption fee.
All fees for dogs & cats include a weeks supply of food for the animal supplied by Arden Grange
Rabbit / Ferret / Chinchilla £30 each or £45 a pair
Guinea Pig £35
