Adoption Enquiry Form

All visits to site are by appointment only.  We understand this can be disappointing, however studies show visitors walking around kennels and catteries can cause distress to an animal, affecting their mental and physical health.  For our animals welfare, we restrict access to staff and volunteers only.   Our current adoption fees are on our "Meet our Cats or Meet our Dogs" pages.
Adopters must be over the age of 18yrs.
If you are unable to answer any question, or the question is not applicable, please enter None or N/A into the answer box.
