Rehoming Information

Thank you for showing an interest in adopting one of our animals. They are at the animal centre through no fault of their own.

Many have been abused and neglected and desperately need a stable new home and loving care. All the animals in our care want to be adopted and we want to do our best to achieve this.

Over 2009 – 2010, the branch re-homed over 1,260 dogs, cats, rabbits and other animals.

Have a look at the profiles of some of the dogs, cats and other animals waiting for homes at our centre.

Adoption fees

Adoption fees are usually the amounts documented below though occasionally these may differ:

Cats £70; kittens £80

Dogs from £120; puppies £150

The rehoming fee covers not only the animal itself but also:

  • Neutering
  • Micro-chipping prior to re-homing
  • Fleaing and worming
  • Vaccination


You must visit the Warrington Animal Centre to see the animal that you are interested in. This need to be via appointment which you can arrange by emailing

Home checks are made to ensure that each animal goes to a suitable home and to ensure that there a good match between the animal and the potential adopter and that the new home is suitable for that animal.

Unfortunately we can not rehome an animal to families with children under 5 years of age.

We highly recommend pet insurance, as expenses can be quite high should the animal suffer an accident or develop a serious illness in later life.
