​Meet Bear!


This beautiful boy is Bear, a 3 year old German Shepherd cross, looking for his furever home.


Bear is certainly a BIG boy- at 43kg you’ll definitely need to make plenty of space on the sofa for him when he fancies tuning into Paul O’Grady’s For The Love of Dogs on a Wednesday evening!

Bear is currently living with his owners, however his adoption will be organised by our expert team. Although Bear’s potential new owner would need to visit him in his current home (in the Ipswich area), any initial enquiries as well as the home check and the adoption paperwork will be handled by RATS to ensure his safety and suitability to his new family.

Although Bear is a big softie with humans, he does suffer from nervous aggression around other dogs and ongoing training will be required by his new owners. A breed-experienced and physically strong owner is absolutely essential, and we can only consider a child free home with no other pets. 

If you think that a life of Bear hugs is just what you’re missing and you’d like to express an interest in adopting this handsome chap, please

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 for an adoption donation (amount on request) and to sign an agreement to care for the pet with a commitment to return them to us if they can't continue to do so.
