Adoption FAQs

Can I come and look at your animals?
At Rain Rescue we do all our viewings by appointment and aim to have an idea of which animals may be suitable for you before you arrive at the centre. Our kennels and cattery are not open for general public viewing.

How much does it cost to adopt?
Our adoption fees vary depending on the individual animal. Generally dogs have an adoption fee of £220 and cats of £90. Kittens have an adoption fee of £110 and sometimes for younger or pedigree dogs we may ask a slightly higher fee, likewise sometimes older dogs or those with additional needs maybe a little less, but rest assured your adoption fee includes everything your dog or cat will need for their new life.

Can I reserve an animal?
You can’t reserve an animal before you’ve met them. Upon meeting if it is agreed with the welfare team that a second  viewing is advisable we may allow a dog or cat to be reserved until the following Saturday for a non refundable fee of £25. We reserve the right to not place a reserve on animals with multiple interests.

How long does the adoption process take?
This is very much dependant on the individual circumstances of the adopter and the animal they are interested in, but it can be as quick as a day. We do ask you to be in a position ready to adopt before coming to meet any of our animals.

I don’t live near you, can I still adopt from Rain Rescue?
Absolutely, we have adopted cats and dogs all across the UK. As long as you are willing to travel to the centre to meet animal as many times as the necessary process takes.
