​Meet Andy!

Our beloved Andy has been a part of the RATS Family for most of his life. Despite several attempts, he sadly hasn't yet found his pawfect home. He sees our kennels as his home and our volunteers as his furever family, but he could still be adopted if he found his ideal owner.

Due to a traumatic incident in his past, Andy is paralysingly fearful of strangers. This is why he must always wear a muzzle on his walks. However once he has been introduced to you and establishes that he can trust you, he is the most loving, affectionate and gentle boy. Andy has met over a hundred people since he has been in our care, and he always remembers everyone.

We're certainly in no rush to rehome our boy. He is very loved and very happy with us. He's known amongst our friends and supporters as King of the Kennels and he takes his Top Dog role very seriously, helping newbies to settle in and showing them the ropes. He's also a regular fundraiser for RATS, taking on sponsored challenges and running competitions. He's got to earn his keep after all :)

We have a number of animals in our care. Most are homeless through no fault of their own and are looking for furever homes and owners who can give them the love and attention they deserve.


Please take a few moments to familiarise yourself with our adoption process:


Step 1:     

The animal is admitted into our care, and assessed by our team.

Step 2:     

The animal is examined by a vet, who treats any ailments or injuries.

Step 3:     

The appropriate team leader will liaise with the potential adopter to get to know them and assess whether they are a potential purr-fect match.

Step 4:     

The potential new owners meet the animal, and decide if they want to adopt. New owners may be asked to visit the animal several times before the adoption takes place.

Step 5:     

A pre-adoption home visit will then be made to new owners premises to meet the members of the household and to ensure that the environment is safe and right.

Step 6:     

If the visit goes well, you will be asked to collect the animal and to make an adoption donation (amount on request) as well as to sign an agreement to care for the pet with a commitment to return them to us if you can't continue to do so.
