Rehome a pet
We find homes for unwanted cats, dogs, small pets and horses across the UK. Find out more about our rehoming process and why you should adopt a pet from Blue Cross.
We first opened in 1986 and our modern facilities have space for approximately 24 dogs and 24 cats, plus purpose-built puppy and kitten facilities.
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.
To see which pets are available on our website please scroll down to choose a species or visit our rehome a pet page. You can see pets available at all our locations or narrow your search more locally. Our pages are updated regularly so please keep visiting them.
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.
Are you up for a challenge and aren’t fazed by the idea of looking after a pet who is struggling to cope in kennels and needs a bit more attention or care in a home environment? Can you give your time and patience to look after a dog that is exhibiting challenging behaviour due to their background or experience? Or can you offer to encourage a frightened or timid cat to come out of their shell and put their trust in humans again? If so, then please consider becoming a short-term foster carer for pets at Blue Cross and help to improve the welfare of animals in our care.
A big part of the fostering role is patience and time, with one-to-one care and socialisation that will allow them to build their confidence, as many animals will have been abandoned or neglected before coming to our rehoming centre. You will be offered training on how to interact with the pet using Blue Cross guidelines, and you will be able to offer a consistent approach to this in order to improve their chances of finding their forever home.
We know from experience that fostering works best in quieter homes with no other pets or young children so that the pet can settle in a bit more easily. If you live within 45 minutes of the centre and can offer flexibility to bring the pet to us for treatment during weekday centre hours, then we would love to hear from you. Fostering an animal is a rewarding experience, knowing that you have put your previous handling experience of pets to good use by playing a key part in the rehoming process.
