Can't rehome an animal at this time?

Love animals but can't take on a new pet? Why not become a dog walker

If it's time you lack, you can still help by joining our Safe Haven scheme

Rehoming > Adoption Procedure

We will be happy to give you further details about any particular animal and they can be seen on a one to one basis with a member of our staff. We endeavour to find the correct pet for your needs and may be able to advise you of the suitability of some animals.

It is also possible to take a particular dog out for a walk if you are interested in offering it a home. (Please bring photo I.D)

Once you have chosen a specific animal we will then arrange for a home-visit to be carried out by one of our trained volunteers. There is a £20 deposit on cat and dog reservations but this will then be deducted from the final adoption fee.

There are a number of criteria to be met by any potential adopter of which the Home can advise you. All of the members of the household will be required to meet the animal before adoption.

It is our policy to neuter and microchip all cats, dogs, and ferrets prior to leaving Bristol Dogs & Cats Home. 

Please be aware that any pets you currently own will need to be vaccinated and their vaccination records must be up to date. You will need to bring proof of this with you when reserving/adopting an animal. 

Our minimum adoption fees are outlined below:

Our adoption fee includes neutering, microchipping (for cats, ferrets and dogs), a full vaccinations course, veterinary check and three weeks of after-care at the RSPCA Bristol Clinic.
