COVID 19 is new for all of us. See some of our most frequently asked questions below. 

1. What is the risk of my pet passing on COVID 19?

In theory, animals can carry COVID 19 on fur (if they are exposed to it) just like on other surfaces. Take additional precautions to minimise risk.

  • Wash hands thoroughly and regularly
  • Keep yourself and your pet at a safe distance from others

2. Can I still rehome an animal?

Please be advised we will continue to rehome our animals throughout the national lockdown period following guidelines. Adopters must live within a one hour travel time radius of the animal centre. If you are interested in adopting one of our animals, please take a look at our adoption pages and complete a perfect match form to get the ball rolling. Alternatively, you can contact us for more information. 

3. How can I prepare my dog for my return to work?

Our animal centre pet supplies shop is classed as essential retail and will remain open for purchases. Thank you for your continued support.

Our branch is able to rehome animals under an appointment only process. Please take a look at our adoption pages and complete a perfect match form to get the ball rolling. Alternatively, you can contact us for more information. 

3. How can I prepare my dog for my return to work?

Sudden changes in routine can cause upset to our four legged friends. See our advice to make the transition as smooth as possible. 

4. How can I prepare my dog to see an increase in face masks?

Dogs are excellent at reading our facial expressions and may struggle when they are unable to see these out and about. Help your dog be prepared for the increase in face masks being worn by reading our tips. 

5. Who will look after my pet if I become ill?

In case you need to go to hospital, you should have an emergency pet carer organised. Use our emergency pet carer form and display at your home so people know who to contact if needed.
