Older Dogs

Over the past few years we have had great success with the rehoming of our older dogs, with the help of the Oldies Club website However there are always more older dogs coming in, so we have decided to separate those over six or seven years old from the younger ones to give them better visibility on our site, by dedicating a page to them alone.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 two. This may be at the discretion of the manager if the dog is very old or has medical issues.

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