Why adopt with us

Adopting through Rain Rescue gives you the opportunity to transform the life of an animal who deserves the very best, often after a long period of neglect and/or abuse. Not only will you be giving your new companion the chance to thrive in a happy life but you’ll be adding to your family too.

What’s more, by adopting with Rain Rescue you’ll be making it possible for us to help another in need by freeing up a space in our rescue centre for another cat or dog.

We’re with you and your new pet all the way…

Rain Rescue spent close to two weeks emailing back and forth with me to get to know me and my needs, and to make sure whatever cat came to live with me would be happy here. Never once told me “it’s too hard to find a cat for you”.
 
KitKat’s foster mums even delivered KitKat right to my door and made sure she was comfortable, and that I had everything I needed, before leaving. They really went above and beyond the call of duty to make sure KitKat found her forever home, and I’m so grateful to Rain Rescue for taking so much time to help me.

We help the cats and dogs who have nobody else

For every animal, you can rely on our:

  • Personalised matching service
    We aim to match the right pet to the right home and vice versa, ensuring the needs of pet and owner are both met.
  • Quick and easy adoption process
    We want to make everything as smooth as possible for you and your new animal, so our streamlined process will enable the two of you to get home together before you know it!
  • Access to post-adoption support 
    We will always help and advise you in whatever way we can after you have taken your pet home.  We want you to have the best experience, and your new pet to be settled and in the right home.
We make adopting easy and cost-effective

At Rain Rescue the one-off adoption fee of around £220 for a dog , £85 for a cat and £120 for a kitten, covers some of the costs we incur in rescuing and rehabilitating each animal. By taking away the stress and cost of organising these vital steps, we enable you to focus fully on welcoming your new pet to your home and your life – as it should be!

What may look like a bargain on an online listing site or from someone who lives around the corner will usually end up costing a lot more – financially and in time. At Rain Rescue we do the hard work before you start, and have the experience, knowledge and reputation to set you and your new pet up properly.
