Re-homing Animals Over The Christmas Period

The RSPCA has issued the following policy with reference to re-homing animals over the Christmas period.

"As we rely on a network of volunteers to conduct our home visits, we often find that the speed with which we can get the home visits done slows down, as the demands of Christmas affect our volunteers too. Because of this, it may take a little longer for your adoption to be processed and we appreciate your patience.

Christmas is a busy and hectic time for most households. Unusual noise and activities, extra demands upon the new owners` time and the difficulties an animal may face when settling into a new home. Experience tells us it could end in tears, so we may not release new adoptions to homes before Christmas if it is best for all concerned.

However, we do understand that for some people the festive period is a calm, quiet time and every adoption is dealt with on an individual basis.

We urge everyone thinking of adopting a pet at Christmas to consider the long term commitment required to properly care for an animal. People should take into account whether they have the time and money to care for an animal 365 days of the year for the next 10 -20 years. Factors to consider include daily grooming, feeding, exercise and ongoing costs such as vet bills and registration fees.

If you are confident that a pet is the right addition to your home the RSPCA recommends visiting a rescue centre with all the family so they can pick out the pet which will be best suited to their particular life style. Pets are a lifelong commitment. Consider carefully before adopting a pet to ensure that this pet will be loved for life".

Ginger and white DLH male, 5-6 years old.Shadow is a magnificent looking fellow with his lion haircut. He is affectionate on his terms and enjoys human company. He needs an older family setup as he can get a bit worked up at times and needs his space. He is looking for a second chance at a happily ever after since he found himself on the streets as a stray.
Ginger Tabby domestic short haired male. 7 and a half years old.Hardy is a friendly vocal boy that has a lot of affection to offer. He is an independent cat however he also loves attention. He would prefer to be the only cat in the household and could possibly live with a calm dog pending further testing. He would suit an older family where he could settle and be himself.
Tortie and white female, 10 years old.Cookie is a sweet natured girl who loves a fuss and a lap to curl up on and get as much love as she truly deserves. She would need to be the only pet in the household. Dear little Cookie also has a medical condition that requires her to have a daily medication, so she needs that extra special someone or family to adopt her. Provisional Reserve
