When you rehome from Animals in Distress, you will take home a pet who has been fully assessed by our expert animal welfare staff as well as our veterinary surgeon.

Every pet at the Rescue Centre is:

  • Vaccinated, microchipped and neutered (where appropriate for their species)
  • Given worming and flea treatments (where appropriate for their species)
  • Examined by a vet and given any necessary treatments
  • Given a training plan where appropriate, designed to meet their specific needs

Rehoming process

Because each pet has their own specific needs and all rehomers have slightly different lifestyles, we don’t have any set rehoming rules or requirements.

We evaluate each pet, and their needs, on an individual basis and we do the same when it comes to identifying the best possible rehomers.

However, the rehoming process for all species at the Rescue Centre follows roughly the same path.

The first step is to have a look at the pets who are currently at the Rescue Centre looking for a new home. If you think any are right for you, simply click on the ‘Rehome Me’ button and complete our rehoming questionnaire.

We’ll then get in touch and will work together with you to find your perfect new pet.

If you are interested in giving a dog a forever home, the process might take slightly longer as it involves a series of walks along the country lanes in Ipplepen with your prospective new dog.

Rehoming pets with children

Every pet reacts differently to children so it’s vital that we assess each match on an individual basis. This is to ensure the best, and safest, possible relationship between the pet and the children.

Where possible, we will say if a pet can potentially be rehomed with children, however this may depend on the child’s age, whether they have lived with pets before and the individual pet’s character.

Once you’ve enquired about a specific pet, we will talk through all of his or her needs and how children fit into this.
