​Meet Twiggy!

Pretty Patterdale Terrier Twiggy is a very special little doggie, with very special needs who is 5 years old.

Twiggy loves her walks and really enjoys being around humans. She literally dances and wiggles with excitement when she greets our volunteers!

Unfortunately, Twiggy has bitten a few times in the past and we have discovered that she finds the hustle and bustle of home life too stressful. As such, we feel that Twiggy would thrive in a calm environment where she can have her own space, with an outdoor kennel. She feels happiest when she is free to roam, and comes and goes as she pleases.


She cannot be rehomed with children and her new owners will need to undertake training to understand her triggers and anxieties. Twiggy must also go to a cat and small mammals free home.

If you feel you might be able to offer this cheeky, characterful girl a place where she can just be herself and relax, please get in touch!

Apply to adopt Twiggy

If you would like to register your interest in adopting Twiggy, 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 owner's 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 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.
