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 Axel

5 to 7 Years


Axel is a handsome 7 year old Shepherd cross. He is a clever boy and very foody which will help with his ongoing training. He likes to carry a toy when he goes out on his walks and would love to have an active home where he will get a lot of training to keep his brain engaged. He is currently working on his doggy social skills with our behaviour team.

Type of home needed

Axel is looking for a quiet adult only home to continue his training. Direct access to a private secure garden is essential, as well as easy access to walks where there aren't too many other dogs. He must be the only pet in the home, and will need some further training which our behaviour team will advise on. Axel will need a few meets at the Canterbury Rehoming Centre and his new family must live within 45 minutes drive as he will need home visits with our behaviour team.

More about me

If Axel sounds like your perfect match, please get in contact to express an interest. Please note if you rent your property, you must be able to provide written permission from your landlord to keep a dog to complete the rehome process. Due to expected high levels of interest you will only hear back from us if we are able to proceed with your application. We will conduct a rehoming interview with successful applicants and home visit via video. Access to emails and video technology will be essential for this process.


We do everything we can to provide essential care for thousands of stray and abandoned dogs who need us, now more than ever. If you'd like to help us during these challenging times, please make a donation. Your support means so much to us all, thank you.

Thank you for your interest in rehoming a dog from our Canterbury Rehoming Centre in Kent.

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.

Start your online application now.

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.
