Adopting an Animal from AAR

Having a dog or cat can be the most wonderful experience and so rewarding, especially if they are a rescue animal.

However there are a few points to consider before adopting an animal:

  • Do you have time for a dog or cat? Some animals and breeds need more time and attention than others.
  • Can you afford an animal? Have you considered all the ongoing costs?
  • Do you have children? Can you give the necessary level of supervision?
  • Have you owned a dog or cat before?
  • Do you have other pets? Do you know how to introduce them carefully?
  • A dog or a puppy? A cat or a kitten? Will a puppy really suit your lifestyle or would an older dog be a better fit?

Adopting is a huge step and a lifelong commitment for that animal, so it is important that you think carefully about the decision before you go ahead.

If the time is right for you to adopt then prepare yourself for excitement, fun, laughter and most importantly lots of love.

Visit our galleries to see all the cats and dogs we have available.

If you would like to move forward with adopting then please contact us with your name and contact details and we will arrange to carry out a Pre-Adoption Home Check. Our home checks are quite informal but are something we do for every animal going to a new home. It is very important to us to ensure we make the perfect match for hound, human and home.
