Rehoming An RSPCA Animal

Do you want to adopt a pet?

At any one time, the South Bucks RSPCA has hundreds of animals looking for loving new homes…
from large mongrels to tiny hamsters and everything in-between.

Please remember that pet ownership takes time, money, commitment and patience – owning a pet is likely to change your life completely.

The South Bucks RSPCA has rehomed thousands of animal, which are unwanted pets, victims of cruelty or pets that need rehoming because a new baby has arrived, or their owners have had to move, are getting divorced, or may even have died.

Before the Society can allow anyone to adopt a pet, an interview is carried out. This gives most new owners the chance to think about what they are about to do, and helps ensure the animal is going to the right home.

Each year the RSPCA re-homes around 80,000 animals, and last year South Bucks RSPCA re-homed 261 dogs, 205 cats, 139 rabbits, 37 guinea pigs, 8 gerbils, 6 ducks, 4 hamsters, 3 chickens, 2 rats, a tortoise, a parakeet and a canary.

All cats and dogs are neutered as well as micro chipped before, or soon after they arrive at their new home.

Our aim is to ensure that all animals we re-home will be safe, happy and loved for the rest of their lives.

      • Think carefully about why you want a pet, its a huge responsibility
      • What sort of pet suits your lifestyle and where you live
      • How much will it cost? Items such as bedding, veterinary bills, insurance and food will need to be purchased
      • How much time will your new pet need?

Think first!

Please remember that pet ownership takes time, money, commitment and patience – owning a pet is likely to change your life completely. If you find an animal you want to offer a home to South Bucks RSPCA will need to make sure the animal is suitable for your circumstances. This process will include a home visit.
