Rehoming

All of our animals are checked over by a vet and vaccinated, treated for fleas and worms and wherever possible, our animals are neutered prior to being rehomed. They are also microchipped in case they go missing in the future. To help us cover these costs and to enable us to continue caring for our animals, we do ask for a donation from anyone who adopts one of our dogs or cats. We receive no government funding and rely solely on the generosity of our supporters and people like you who adopt our animals to provide much needed funding.

Should you wish to offer any of the animals under our care a home, please do one of the following:

  • email cheadleanimalwelfare@hotmail.co.uk with your contact details and the name of the animal you are interested in and someone will be in touch
  •  telephone 07531 232 542 for dog enquiries
  • telephone 01335 390369 or 01889 564045 for cat enquiries

*** Please note we are not full time paid employees but a few volunteers responding as quickly as we can in our free time.***

We generally rehome our animals within the Staffordshire Moorlands and surrounding areas. However, we may consider rehoming out of the usual areas subject to a satisfactory home check and vet references. Appointments must be made to see any of the animals.

Taking on a new pet is a big commitment so be sure to look at the POINTS TO CONSIDER PAGE. You will find information and links to such as Cat Care-http://www.icatcare.org/advicePlease remember that your new pet may take several weeks to settle into their new home and a new routine, so be prepared to be patient with them. It will be worth it for the love they will give you in return. **Do not think about having a dog unless you are prepared to commit to it for its life- think carefully about your current and likely future circumstances before deciding.

Cats and new babies- Preparing you and your cat for the arrival of a new baby is important to make sure first introductions go well. We have added a link to guidance notes within the ‘points to consider’ page that can advise you on this. See the attached bite-prevention-in-children- poster for things children should be aware of when around dogs.

There are lots of books and websites on the subject of pets and their care but we will we pleased to advise you where we can. However, if unfortunately things don’t work out with your new dog or cat, for whatever reason, please contact us or return the pet to us so that we can find them an alternative home. We always remain the first point of call should your cat or dog need to be rehomed again. The amended Dangerous Dogs Act came into effect in England and Wales on 13 May 2014.
