Our Exeter rehoming, advice and behaviour unit (RABU) supports pets and people across the south west. We’re here to help people through any challenges they might have as owners, so that their pets get the best care. And if owners are no longer able to look after their pet, we find them loving new homes.
RABUs offer rehoming, advice and behaviour services for the community and are specially placed in areas that need our help. While they don't have facilities to care for pets on site, we work with partner charities and our network of volunteers so that we can continue to be there for the pets and people that need us.
Looking for a pet?
Our Rehoming Team is dedicated to finding the right pet for you. If you are interested in a pet on our website please complete a rehoming form in the first instance, you can find this on the pet’s profile page. So we can understand the type of pet you are looking for please do call us first if you would like to arrange a visit.
Our Home Direct Scheme
Our Home Direct Scheme is for dogs, cats, rabbits and other small pets whose owners can sadly no longer keep them but don’t need to find them a new home straight away. Pets stay in their existing home until a new owner is found for them. All pets go through our careful assessment and matching process.
Short-term volunteer foster caring
Become a volunteer short term foster carer for pets at Blue Cross and help improve the welfare of the animals in our care. As a volunteer foster carer you will look after needy animals in your own home while they are recuperating from operations or illness, or young kittens or puppies until they are able to find a permanent new home.
