How to adopt

Adopting a cat or dog from Teckels

We want to make it as easy as possible for you to adopt an animal from us. However we always consider the needs of each individual animal and we will take a lot of care to help you find the right dog or cat for you, your home and your lifestyle. 

Firstly our staff will chat with you to find out what type of dog or cat is going to be suitable. They will ask you about your home environment, work situation, children, other pets, garden and so on. After that we will introduce a dog or cat to you in the presence of Teckels staff. We will give you an honest assessment of the chosen dog or cat. This is based on the ongoing evaluations we have made since the animal has been in our care and we always make sure we give you as much information as possible. If everything goes well the adoption can progress. At this point you will complete the adoption paperwork and pay the adoption fee of £160 for a dog and £80 for a cat.

And then…congratulations, your dog or cat can go to their new home with you!

Please keep in touch…

We love to hear how ex-Teckels cats and dogs are enjoying their new homes. Why not send us a Happy Tail to feature on our web site?

However we also recognise that sometimes it can be a real challenge helping an animal overcome a difficult past and settle into a new home. In some cases this process takes a significant amount of time. Please contact us for support and advice – we are here to help. We would love every adoption to be for life but we do recognise that sometimes things don't work out or circumstances change.
