Rehoming by appointment

Our rehoming centres are open by appointment only. We're still rehoming, but we're doing things a little differently.

About Ollie

2 to 5 Years


Ollie is a big lovable lump who can build an incredible bond with people once he knows he can trust you; he has never really grown up but that part of his charm as he always puts a smile on his carers faces. Ollie loves to learn new tricks and has loads already under his belt, like paw and go to bed! His favourite toy is a stuffed animal and he has quite an impressive collection in his kennel.

Type of home needed

Ollie takes his time getting to know new people so potential adopters will need multiple visits before going to his forever home, as he can be cautious of new people he is looking for an adult only home with few visitors and no children. Ollie is best suited to quiet areas for walking so that he can fully relax.

Thank you for your interest in rehoming a dog from our Ballymena Rehoming Centre in Northern Ireland.

The first step to rehoming from us is to complete our online application form. We’ll review your application and if we think you could be a good match for the dog, we’ll give you a call to chat in more detail.

When reviewing applications, we're looking at how closely your lifestyle matches the needs of the dog. If we have lots of strong matches, then we'll start with the family that applied first.

We may arrange a virtual home check to find out more about you, your lifestyle, and the home you can offer. We may also make an appointment for you to come and meet a dog at the centre.

We aim to respond to all rehoming applications within five working days. If you have not heard from us within five working days, unfortunately you have been unsuccessful this time.
