ADOPT-A-PET is a privately run animal rights' rescue, rehabilitation
and adoption organisation for dogs and cats. It is proud to be part
of the "no-kill" movement which is gaining in momentum throughout
the civilised world. Every animal which comes into ADOPT-A-Pet's
care is treated with the same love and respect, whether it is a
pedigreed stray, or a starving, emaciated dog riddled with mange and
other parasites, or a cat with broken legs.
The only animals which are humanely euthanized on the advice of
the veterinarians who assist ADOPT-A-PET, are those which have
terminal illnesses or incurable pain with no hope of recovery. Every
rescued animal is checked by a veterinarian, treated if necessary,
inoculated, de-wormed and sterilised. Assistance is also given by
dog & cat behaviourists.
All our animals are kept at various kennels and foster homes.

Prospective owners are first interviewed verbally and then a personal
home check is made, before an adoption is finalised. Animals have to be
treated as part of the family and need to sleep indoors. A second pet
needs to be adopted if the owner works all day.
The adoption fee includes the first inoculation, de-worming,
sterilisation if an adult, an identity disk and a microchip. In the case of puppies and kittens, the sterilisation fee is paid
in advance and when the sterilisation is due, the owner is notified
to take the animal in to the nearest veterinary practice which
