Animal adoption fees

Posted January 2018

It is now three years since we reviewed the adoption fee for our animals. Sadly, we have had to do so again and we will be increasing two of our fees with effect from 1st September 2018. The minimum fee we will now be asking for each animal will be:- 

  1. Adult Dog - from £150 
  2. Puppy – from £150
  3. Adult Cat - from £90
  4. Kitten - from £90
  5. Rabbit - from £25 
  6. Small Animal and Birds – £5 to £15 

If you choose to adopt a second animal of the same species within 6 months, then we will reduce the adoption fee for the second animal by 25%. 

What do you get for the adoption fee?

Most importantly your new family member(s)! 

On adoption your new pet will be neutered (if 5 months or older). Dogs, cats and rabbits will be microchipped and we will change the registration details to your own. They will also have up to date treatments for the vaccinations, de-fleaing and worming, which come as standard. If you are adopting an unneutered puppy or kitten, we issue you with a voucher to pay for neutering when the little one becomes old enough.
