Dogs for adoption

Please take a little time to look at the gallery below showing the dogs we have available for adoption. If you see one you like click its picture to find out more about it. Perhaps there is one here you could love and provide a home for.If you would like to meet a dog with a view to offering it a home, then please contact us or call in at the Ark during our opening hours and we’ll be happy to introduce you. Make sure you have read and understood our Adoption Agreement so that you understand on what terms we can offer you an animal. From now onwards, we ask for people bringing dogs in for rehoming to make sure they are up to date with vaccinations and can provide proof or are willing to arrange an appointment with our vets a week before admission, or unfortunately they may risk being turned away.


With immediate effect, kennels will be out of bounds to the public . If you want to view a particular dog staff will be happy to bring the dog out to meet you. We’ve had a noise abatement notice served upon us and have to find a way to keep the dogs quieter, so can no longer allow anybody but staff to enter the kennel blocks. The cats can still be viewed in the usual way.

Please note: To make things run more smoothly, we’d be grateful if adopters, once they’ve passed the home check, would let us know the day and approximate time they plan to collect their new pet. Effective from 1st April 2018, the adoption donation for a dog will be £120 for one and £175 for a pair.

Each cat and dog adopted from The Ark Animal Rescue and Retirement Home comes with 5 Weeks Free pet insurance – whatever their age!
