​Meet Kiwi!


Due to an unexpected change in her owner's circumstances, two year old Kiwi is looking for a new home through no fault of her own.

She is a healthy, happy young lady, who is gentle and loving. She adores playing with other dogs and would love to live with a fellow four-legged friend, but she does prefer dogs of her own size. Due to her high prey drive, Kiwi cannot be rehomed with cats or small furries.

She is houstrained and grew up with children, and she's also very well-behaved in the home. Kiwi also loves her walks, so she would enjoy living with an active family who like to spend lots of time in the great outdoors.


She does suffer from separation anxiety, so her new owner will need to be at home a lot and willing to work with her to to overcome her worries over time.


A typical Shar Pei, Kiwi can be nervous of new people and she becomes fearful when there is too much going on around her. She's not a cuddler, but she does love a belly rub.

For her comfort and wellbeing, Kiwi will stay with her current owner until she finds her new home, however her adoption will be organised by our expert team. Although her potential new owner would need to visit her in her current home (Stevenage, Hertfordshire), any initial enquiries as well as the home check and the adoption paperwork will be handled by RATS to ensure her safety and suitability to her new family.

If you think that you can offer Kiwi the most pawsome of homes, please get in touch!

If you would like to register your interest in adopting Kiwi, please complete your details below and we'll send you a detailed adopter enquiry form by e-mail.



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.
