Looking for a new home.

Tucker is your typical collie who has it all!

At around 5 years old he’s stunningly handsome with his beautiful long mane, extremely smart and is a big hit with all the staff and volunteers at the centre. Tucker loves his walks away from stressful shelter life and will walk beside you like a dream. A little paddle down at the river or off to the beach on a quiet day with his favourite volunteer dog walker. He even impresses with his know-how of basic commands like “sit” and “give paw”. And then there’s his football skills!

Tucker seeks a headstrong owner, who must have no young children or any pets or animals. Ideally his new owner should have some experience with rescue dogs or collie experience and is willing to put a bit of work in to nurture Tucker into the amazing pet we know he can be. Tucker is an intelligent high energy breed who is keen to learn and be challenged.

If interested in offering Tucker his forever home please visit 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.
