Adoption Process

If you have seen an animal that you are interested in adopting, please complete the relevant application form and a member of the adoptions team will make contact with you to discuss your application further.

Cats that are resident in the Hope Cattery can be viewed every day between 11 am and 2 pm.  An application form can be completed before visiting but reservations can only be made after meeting the cat. For cats that are in foster care, please complete our application form to request a viewing.

For all dog enquiries, we request an application form is completed before arranging a viewing, which is by appointment only.

Please read all the requirements of the animal you wish to adopt, these are in place to ensure the right match is made. We assess our animals carefully and will ensure that their needs are put first with any adoption.

As part of our adoption criteria, if you have any existing animals at home they must be vaccinated, microchipped and neutered.


The process

  • Application form
  • Viewing of the animal
  • Reserve for 7 days only
  • Home check (For all rented accommodation we will need to see a copy of your tenancy agreement or a permission letter)
  • Adoption paperwork and collection
  • Post-adoption home check (if applicable)

When collecting

Cats and small animals will require a suitable secure carrier for transportation. Dogs require a collar, lead and ID tag with your details on.
