Rehoming by appointment

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


I'm looking for a new home...

About Jess

2 to 5 Years


Say hello to beautiful Jess, this 3 year old collie is a very friendly lady who loves getting a fuss and a pet. Jess loves her toys and enjoys feeding enrichment which keeps her entertained in her kennel.

Type of home needed

Jess is looking for a home ideally with collie experience, she could live with kids ages 12 and up. Jess hasn't had much experience in a home environment, she can be quite sensitive to certain noises and will need understanding owners who will help her overcome this; she is also very sensitive to traffic noises and will need a home in a quiet location, with quiet walking areas; she could share her home with another doggy pal, pending meets.

More about me

Although we a seeking a permanent home for Jess we would also welcome a temporary foster home so she can gain some more life experiences.Please note we are not able to accept applications from outside of Northern Ireland - Thank you.

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.
