Thank you for showing an interest in adopting an animal from the RSPCA.

Our branch currently care for cats and dogs which have been removed by Inspectors from situations of cruelty, neglect or abuse. In many cases, they are going through the court process, so most of the animals in our care are not available for rehoming just yet. Any available dogs or cats can be found here. If we don’t have what you are looking for, visit Find A Pet to see the animals across the RSPCA.

If there is an animal that interests you, please email and we’ll send you a Perfect Match form to complete. Once we have assessed the form, we will be in touch to discuss the next steps.

Adoption Fees

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

Cats £120, kittens £150
Dogs £200, puppies or large-breed (40kg+) £300

All animals are:

  • Neutered
  • Microchipped
  • Treated for fleas and worms
  • Vaccinated


Generally, because we don’t know a great deal about their history, we do not rehome dogs to families with children under 5 years of age. Similarly some of our cats are better suited to a quieter home environment and this information will be given on their profile.

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.
