South Yorkshire: Sheffield rehoming, advice and behaviour unit
Dogs spend their days in our comfortable home rooms, where they get to play and receive one-to-one care and attention from our team, and they spend the nights in local kennels. Our employees and volunteers also make sure our homeless dogs get the training and veterinary treatment they need. The unit features interactive rehoming screens where people can browse details of our pets needing homes as well.
Our Sheffield unit offers advice about pet care and rehoming, and free microchipping for dogs and cats.
Can I visit the centre without an appointment?
Yes. You can visit between 2.00pm and 4.00pm. We are closed to visitors without a pre-booked appointment on Wednesdays.
What can I drop in for?
Our team are here to help. So, whether it’s about volunteering, donating, pet advice or information on how to adopt a pet, we’ll talk you through.
Can I rehome a pet when I drop in?
You’ll need to apply to adopt a pet on our website. This is to make sure the application process is as fair as possible to everyone. If we think you’ll be a good match for one of our pets, we’ll contact you to start the process.
Can I meet a pet when I drop in?
Most of our dogs, cats and small pets are looked after by our fantastic team of foster carers. This ensures they get the best care. If we do have pets in our centres, we try to limit the number of people who can see them to those who have a pre-booked appointment, as lots of visitors can be stressful.
We run our Home Direct scheme from our Sheffield site, which means we can help people in the local area find new homes for dogs, cats and small pets that they need to rehome without them having to come into the unfamiliar surroundings of kennels. We work very closely with other local rescues and will continue to take in homeless pound dogs from them. Plus, we will work with local veterinary practices to find new homes for pets who need them.
Short-term volunteer foster caring
We are looking for volunteer foster carers who can offer short-term care to needy dogs, cats or small pets in their own homes. We’d love to hear from you if you can help pets who need an extra bit of care in a home environment.
