Dog Rehoming Process
Our Godmanchester Centre is the only one of our centres to rehome dogs and is open everyday, including Bank Holidays (except Christmas Day and Boxing Day) from 10.00am until 4.00pm.

- The longest part of the process is finding a dog that is suitable for your home. Once you have found your ideal canine companion we aim to get them home with you within the week. In the meantime, you are welcome to come along and take your new friend for a walk every day to get to know him or her better!
- If you are moving, changing jobs or going on holiday within two months we ask that you come back after this time to look for a dog. This way both you and the dog will be more settled and relaxed. Most boarding kennels will not accept a rescue dog for 6-8 weeks after homing because of the increased risk of kennel cough.
Unfortunately we do not have the resources to contact people on an individual basis; you will need to visit us or keep checking our rehoming pages.
If you are looking for a specific breed of dog you could also try breed rescue via The Kennel Club on 0870 606 6750.
We do sometimes have puppies available and advise that you telephone us to find out. The majority of puppies we have that are looking for homes are crossbreeds.
The rehoming fee is £120 for a dog and £150 for a puppy. Your new pet will be microchipped, and if old enough will have been neutered.
Adult dogs will be up-to-date with their vaccinations, flea and worming treatments, while puppies will be as far through their treatment as their age allows. Any outstanding treatments will need to be carried out by your own vet.
