Adoption Criteria

Adoption Fees

Why do we charge an adoption fee?
The adoption fee helps to cover some of the cost of the animal's stay with us. We are a self-funded branch and it costs over £12,000 per week to run our rehoming centre. Without adoption fees, we simply wouldn't be able to help the hundreds of animals that find their way into our care every year.

Individually priced, starting from £350

Kittens - £200
Adult cats - £150
Cats aged 12+ years - £100

All ages - £100

Guinea pigs
Males (neutered) - £50
Females - £30

Small animals
Rats/Degus - £15
Hamsters/Gerbils/Mice - £10
Chinchillas - £30

Parakeet - £50
Budgie/Cockatiel - £35
Finch/Canary - £15

What's included in the adoption fee?
Every animal has a full health check by our vet prior to adoption.
Dog, cat, and rabbit adoption fees also include microchipping, neutering, vaccinations and 4 weeks free pet insurance.
Dog and cat adoption fees also include flea & worm treatment, and a starter pack:
- Dog - harness, collar, gnaw bone or toy, and a bag of Burns dry food.
- Cat - scratching post, litter tray and scoop, fluffy mice toy, and a bag of Burns dry food.
