Rehome a pet
Giving people the support and knowledge they need to treat animals with care and respect
Hi, we are Boris and Lola, two Bassetts approximately 7-8 years old, we are the best of buddies and want to find a home together. Despite being neglected and without human company in our last home we are both very loving and affectionate dogs. We like other dogs but unfortunately not cats, but we could live with older children who are able to be involved with our care and treat us with kindness and respect. We would love a home that can give us steady regular exercise, company and the love and care that we have missed on in the past.

At times we do have surrendered puppies available for homing. We currently have a staffie, lurchers and a collie/springer due to be available soon. We aim to match puppies to homes that will be able to provide the socialisation and training they require along with a suitable lifestyle and environment to meet their needs as an adult dog. If you are interested in adopting one of these puppies and have already registered with us then please let us know. You can put through the web enquiry (let us know when you registered and the name under which you registered) or call 01825 880 464. We will add your form to the puppy list if suitable, be aware that demand can be high and we may not have time to get back to all applicants if the puppies are placed and you are unsuccessful.

You will need to fill out an application form and attend an interview with kennel staff. We are open seven days a week, no appointment necessary.
My name is Red and I am an active, attentive and inquisitive 2 year old male Husky. I was rescued from appalling conditions at a puppy farm, confined and unused to human contact. I have been undergoing extensive rehabilitation and though still nervous I am ready to start the process of finding a family to call my own. I will need experienced, patient and very committed people to continue to show me the kindness I need and support my development. I would benefit from living with other dogs but not cats and children would be considered if older. I will have specific needs from a home environment and the ability of the family to continue my rehabilitation. Please research my breed type’s character too.

Each year we receive some 1500 new animals at Raystede. For many of them what they most need is a loving home where they can make a fresh start. When we rehome an animal, our job is a bit like a dating agency, finding the best match between each animal and their possible future owner.
Every animal has different characteristics and habits which may or may not fit with your home life. That is why at Raystede we take such special care to get to know every animal before rehoming.
For example, for our dogs and cats we use a traffic light system which gives valuable information about the needs of each dog, both to our visitors and volunteers. Only then does the matchmaking begin!
