Born: April 2017
Breed: Pointer/Setter Cross
Patrick and his sister Saffron (now re-homed) have spent their whole lives in rescue kennels and as such, they were very nervous and fearful of the outside world. Patrick has been in our care for several months now (he's now with a fabulous fosterer, who has been working wonders with him), and it took a long time to even start his journey to rehabilitation.
When they first arrived, Patrick and Saffron would tremble at the sight of humans and would completely shut down with fear when they were approached. After endless hours working gently and patiently to gain their trust, their nervousness started to slowly abate, and Patrick is far more comfortable around us now (especially when there are treats involved!)
Due to his past and subsequent nervousness, Patrick will need a very patient and experienced owner. As it may be quite some time before enough trust can be gained to touch him and walk him, a large (and very secure) garden will be necessary, and we strongly recommend continued training and devotion to help him to reach his full potential. Several visits to our kennels will be needed, and we will only consider a very special home for our beloved Patrick.
If you think you can help us to change Precious Patrick's life and give him the love and safety he truly deserves, please get in touch.

Apply to adopt Patrick
If you would like to register your interest in adopting Patrick, 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:
The animal is admitted into our care, and assessed by our team.
The animal is examined by a vet, who treats any ailments or injuries.
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.
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.
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.
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.
