What to consider when rescuing or rehoming

There are plenty of reputable rescue centres, but sadly low-welfare sellers have been known to operate under the guise of a rehoming organisation.

When rescuing or rehoming a cat, dog, puppy or kitten, make sure you choose a reputable rescue organisation, you can start by checking if the rescue organisation is a member of the Association of Dogs and Cats Homes (ADCH).

A good rescue and rehoming organisation will check your suitability first and usually use an adoption contract. They will help you choose the right dog or cat for you and give you advice on caring for your new pet.
