Having a pet is one of the most rewarding things you can do. We’re here to help you find the perfect pet for you and your family.
When we rehome a pet, we make a pledge to ensure their well-being for the rest of their lives. This means that you can call on us for support and advice weeks, months and even years later.
We match hundreds of people with their perfect pets every year, rehoming everything from guinea pigs, hamsters and degus to dogs, cats and even chickens.

Could you offer a temporary foster placement for dogs, cats, rabbits, guinea pigs or other small animals while we find them permanent homes? We also look for foster carers to act as midwives for pregnant cats and dogs. This can be for a few weeks or a few months.
Fostering is extremely rewarding and means you get the chance to spend time with animals in your home without the long term financial and lifetime commitments.
