Adopting a dog with us.

Available for Adoption.

Dogs need to find new homes for many reasons.  Sometimes they just ended up in the wrong home, the first time around.

A dog in rescue will often be confused and needs time to work out, that his past life has now gone.  Its hard for them to understand here in kennels lots of different people coming and looking after them.  Different faces, different smells and different words.  Dogs are super clever and really try to understand us, but even though we try hard to be consistent – the nature of them being in kennels is upsetting and confusing for them.

Once they meet you, again you are another stranger and they don’t realise that you want to help them and only want the best for them.  They are in a confused state.  We people know that, but the dog doesn’t.  Its up to us to help them understand and explain things to them as best we can.

We are here for you as we want what’s best for you and your new dog.

Over the years, Rain Rescue have learned how to best help the dogs needing new homes.  The nature of what we do is to try to find the right home for the dog and the right dog for the home. That’s how you get a lifelong match.

We ask questions about your home life and the sort of things you would like to be able to do with your new dog, how much time you have available and how much exercise you would like to be doing out and about with them.

If you enjoy fell walking at weekends, but want to be out and about at work in the week, that’s a huge ask for any dog – some can fit in, but its not easy to expect them to do both.

Likewise, if you really enjoy a short potter to the shops, your not looking for the one that will be out hill walking each day. Your lifestyle dictates the sort of dog that will nicely join in with you.  Which is also what we want to do for the dog in our care.

If we have an elderly dog that doesn’t want much hassle, usually they don’t want to go into a busy household.  At their time in life, they are usually after a calmer setting.

We help the cats and dogs who have nobody else.

We make adopting easy and cost-effective.

At Rain Rescue the one-off adoption fee of around £250 for a dog , £100 for a cat and £150 for a kitten, covers some of the costs we incur in rescuing and rehabilitating each animal. By taking away the stress and cost of organising these vital steps, we enable you to focus fully on welcoming your new pet to your home and your life – as it should be! 

Many animals come into our care with medical needs which we will try to understand before they are rehomed. 

Where you see £10.00 kittens in the paper, or £50.00 dogs – you just need to build in the extra costs you may incur as you bring your new dog or cat up to being healthy and ready for their new future.
