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 Batfink

2 to 5 Years


To apply to rehome Batfink, please click on the ' Rehoming me starts here' button below. Batfink does require multiple visits from potential adopters, so his home will need to be within an hour's drive of the centre.

Type of home needed

Batfink is a lively 18 month old Crossbreed. This little chap is full of energy and would love to find a home where he will go on nice long walks, but also have lots of mental stimulation. Batfink is shy when first meeting new people, but with slow handling and some tasty treats he soon comes out of his shell, but he will still need slow introductions when meeting new people in the home. He is looking for a stable and loving adult only home who will continue with his training needs and who have previous experience owning a dog. Batfink is under socialised with other dogs and doesn't know how to react around them, so his socialising will need to be built up gradually with calm doggy friends. He will need to be the only dog in the home and unfortunately, he is unable to live with cats and small furries. Batfink would struggle living in a really built up area and would need to live in a more quieter, more rural location.

More about me

Batfink would prefer owner's who are around during the day to keep him company as he is not keen being left for long and he may also need some encouragement with his house training. Multiple visits to the centre may be needed to build up that bond with him before going home. Batfink is a firm favourite with the staff as he is such a great fun personality once he has that relationship with you.


In these unprecedented circumstances, we're doing everything we can to continue our vital work caring for thousands of stray and abandoned dogs. If you'd like to help, please make a donation. Your support means so much, now more than ever.
