Looking for a new home.

Wally is Rainbows ‘Smiler’

as he greets everyone with the biggest smile.

Wally is a 1 year old typical Collie, who was found as a stray and handed in to the local council dog pound. 
He is enjoying the attention at the centre and loves his daily walks and play time, Wally will benefit from some basic training as he pulls a little on the lead, but we have seen a bit of an improvement already and have every confidence that he will continue to improve, especially in his fur-ever home where he can settle.
Wally is just full of energy and loves nothing more than the chance to burn it off. We have no previous history on Wally but he has realised that his pen is his home (for now) and he has since been keeping it clean, so we see house training as no issue to this clever chap.
Wally would be suitable to rehome with kids and although he hasn't been mixed here at the centre yet, we do not foresee any problems. 
If interested in offering Wally his forever home please visit him at the centre during opening hours 12-4pm Tues - Sun

Adoption Procedure - Dogs

If you are looking to adopt a dog from the Rainbow Rehoming Centre please visit the centre where you can see all of the dogs that are in our care.  Our staff can help determine which is the right dog for you and your family.  

Next you will be required to fill out a booking form which is a series of questions to find out if you will be able to look after the dog for its lifetime.  Before any dog leaves the centre a home check is carried out to ensure you have a secure and loving environment for the dog.

Finally, our adoption fee is £100 This adoption fee covers the following:-

  • Worm and de-flea
  • Two vaccinations
  • Neutering
  • Micro chipping

Please Note:

When the Rainbow Rehoming Centre takes in an animal, whether it is a cat, dog, kitten or puppy it is with the intention of finding this animal its forever home. Our commitment to this animal is not temporary though, as even after adoption a Rainbow animal remains a 'Rainbow animal' for life. So if at any time after adoption, whether it is one week, one year or ten years and you find that you cannot take care of your Rainbow pet you must contact us at the centre and your pet will be returned into our care. Under no circumstances should a Rainbow animal be passed on.

If you have any questions regarding the welfare of your pet please contact the Rainbow Centre and we will be glad to help.
