Meet Archie! (Reserved)



Awesome Archie is a 12-year-old Toy Poodle X Shih Tzu, who tragically found himself homeless when his elderly owner passed away.


This beautiful boy is an absolute cracker, and he’ll make the most amazing companion to his lucky new owner. Confident, cuddly and devastatingly cute, Archie has well and truly stolen the hearts of the entire RATS team!


He adores the company of other dogs and he is also very cat-friendly. He would also suit a family with children over 12 years old. Despite being in his retirement years, he thoroughly enjoys his walks, particularly if he gets to hang out with plenty of four-legged friends.


Archie was a little underweight when he arrived in our care but he is happily eating his meals and other than dry eye (which will require continuous treatment for the rest of his life), he’s fighting fit and ready to find his happy ever after.

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 home to meet the members of the household and to ensure that the environment is safe.


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.
