We have recently received an update on Derek, who was adopted from our centre in November 2022. When asked about their adoption experience, this is what his new owners had to say:


“Our adoption process was incredibly easy and quick.

We applied on the Wednesday, were contacted on the Thursday and asked to send photos through of our house, contacted again on Friday to confirm our photos were okay and to book a meet with Derek. We booked a meet for the Saturday where we brought our current dog to meet Derek.

We were able to take Derek home that day as he got on well with our current dog. The staff were lovely and incredibly helpful, and filling out the paperwork was easy! You get a voucher to spend in the rescue shop which is very handy for some supplies.

Since then, any discussions or interactions I have had with this branch have been very positive and helpful.

Derek gets on incredibly well with our dog Ivy; they have become best friends – they nap together, chew things together, and play together. Derek is also very gentle with our cats. It was great that his fosterer had cats as it started the process of him getting used to them.”


We would love to hear (and share) updates on how your furry family members are doing since leaving our care. Send your ‘Happy Ever After’ story to [email protected] with their best photos attached!
