​Meet Patrick and Saffron 


Patrick and his sister Saffron have very special needs, and won’t be ready for rehoming for quite some time.  


This brother and sister Pointer/Setter cross duo have spent their whole lives in rescue kennels and as such, they are very nervous and fearful of the outside world. They’re going to be spending lots of time with us to help them to be ready for their furever homes when the time is right.


Due to their pasts, they will need quiet homes with patient and experienced owners.  


We’re looking forward to seeing them both blossom and come out of their shells with lots of love and affection from the RATS family.


We’ll let you know when we feel they are ready for the next chapter in their futures.


Please note we are not taking applications for these dogs at the moment.

Apply to adopt Patrick and Saffron

If you would like to register your interest in adopting Patrick and Saffron once applications are open, 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.
