Our Fees

Reserve Fee


Weekly Minimum Donation

Per Week The Animal Is Still In Our Care

  • Animal is reserved in your name!
  • Each minimum £10 Donation ensures the animal is reserved for 1 week.
  • If payments stop, we will take the reservation off 3 days after payment is due and this means someone else can now apply for adoption on that animal.

This is to stop misuse of our reservation system as people would commit to adoption then after weeks of no reply we would have people say they can't. We understand circumstances can change, but it cost to keep the animal in our care while awaiting completion of the adoption. Due to this we charge a mandatory minimum donation of £10 a week until the animal is taken home.

Adoption Fee

Minimum Donation

Minimum Adoption Fees are dependant on the species of animal and it's care while with us.

Please visit each animals profile for their adoption fee. Some when they come to us come in with health problems, requiring treatment and more. We try to recover these costs through our adoption fees. 

Per Adoption

  • Adoption Certificate
  • Care Sheet
  • 2 Week After Check

Please remember that each animal costs a lot to rehabilitate and rehome an animal costing up to £25 per animal per day. All extra donations go towards the keep and well-being of our animals.
