Adoption Costs

RACR has a NO DESTROY POLICY unless a animal comes in severely ill, suffering and nothing can be done to save the animal. We push every inch of the way to make sure the animal is given all the right treatment possible. All Dogs, cats, Rabbits and ferrets will be spayed/neutered, vaccinated and ID chipped before re-homing (unless to young at the time, please read above in adoptive homes) Other small furries will be routinely mite and lice treated and vet checked. Any ill animals coming in will be treated with a full course of treatment before being re-homed. All dogs will have a full risk assessment before being re-homed. Sometimes animals come in with life long illness or health problems, this can range from diabetic needs, addisons disease, dietary needs, dental problems etc… This needs to be taken into consideration when adopting from us, as you will need to be able to afford the ongoing treatment. RACR will be honest and upfront when re-homing animals with ongoing treatments needed.

RACR asks adopters to make a set adoption donation in accordance to each animal to help fund the rescue. Adoption fees are as follows:

  • Dogs £175
  • Cats/kittens £100.

Reptiles is dependent on the reptile species. Please ask us for adoption donation. £15 – £40

Parakeets £20+ depending on species type

Other small furries such as Rats, Hamsters, Mice etc.. we ask a minimum donation of £10. This is to help cover any vet fees, mite or lice treatment, anti-biotics or any other treatment if needed.

All dogs, cats, rabbits & ferrets will be spayed/neutered, vaccinated and ID chipped. Sometimes we can’t spay/neuter the animal if is too young or old. If this is the case, then any animal too young at the time will need doing once old enough and proof sent to the rescue, a neuter/spay contract will be signed by the adopter.

Please do remember, the average costs of neutering, vaccinating and Micro chipping each animal costs us 3 times more than we ask for the adoption fee. A lot of animals also need medical treatment on arrival, some which can be intensive and ongoing for a long time before they are well enough to be re-homed.
