Due to the Coronavirus outbreak we have suspended all intake and rehoming of animals until further notice. We are doing this to protect our staff and ensure that they can continue to look after the animals in our care. As soon as we are able to lift this we will do so.

If you find yourself in a position which means that you need to find a new home for your pet, then please call Wadars on 01903 247111.

A member of the team will take some details from you, both about the animal and the reason for needing to find it a new home. We will then discuss it with our Animal Welfare Team and make a decision as to whether we are able to take the animal in.

It is not always possible for us to take on an animal, either because we are full, or if an animal has a medical or behavioural condition which means that it is not suitable for rehoming. In that case we would advise you to speak with your vet about your options, or give you contact details for other organisations who might be able to help.

When taking in an animal for rehoming we ask for a contribution towards its keep. On average it costs Wadars over £400 to care for and rehome a dog, and over £300 for a cat. This includes the cost of veterinary check-ups, and in many cases neutering, vaccinating, treating for fleas and worms, as well as kennelling fees until a home can be found. On average an animal will stay with us for a month before finding a new home.

If we are able to take in your animal for rehoming, we can give you updates (on request) about whether it has been adopted, but unfortunately we will not be able to tell you where your animal has been rehomed to.
