Regardless of the reason or circumstances for being unable to keep a pet, the JSPCA Animalsí Shelter will take in all unwanted companion animals and find them new and loving homes. Every animal is thoroughly health-checked and temperament assessed before being placed in a new home. Most animals are neutered, vaccinated and microchipped (as appropriate for the species) before becoming available for re-homing and all cats are blood tested to establish whether they have been infected with Feline Leukaemia Virus (FeLV) and Feline Immunodeficiency Virus (FIV). Once a prospective new owner has been found, a home visit will be carried out to ensure the animalís requirements can be met.
The Shelter also runs a Foster Animal Scheme. This Scheme offers reduced cost veterinary treatment for life to elderly animals re-homed from the Shelter or to animals the Shelter re-homes with on-going medical conditions, such as Diabetes Mellitus. By way of this Scheme, it helps to increase the chances of older animals finding new homes.
There are often lots of dogs, cats, rabbits and rodents needing new homes. Therefore, if you are interested in re-homing an animal from the JSPCA Animals' Shelter, please contact the Shelter on 01534 724331.
