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 Barley

5 to 7 Years


I am currently looking for my new family. To apply to rehome me please click on the 'Come and Meet Me' button below. Applications will close when I have found a suitable match. I will need to meet my new family a number of times at the centre before going home.

Type of home needed

2 year old Barley is a sweet but shy girl looking for a quiet home without children as she will find them just a little too scary. She is asking for your help to build her confidence in general so she can learn how great home life is!! A secure and private garden would be great for her to sunbathe and work on housetraining, being the clever girls she is and loving a snack this won't take her long.

More about me

Barley walks beautifully on the lead and doesn't mind making doggy friends out and about but, needs to be the only pet at home. She would like to meet you a few extra times at the centre to get to know you but is sure to become a right cuddle monster with a gentle touch. Barley will need her leaving hours build up slowly whilst adjusting to her new forever home but who wouldn't want to be with this girl every second of every day right?!

Thank you for your interest in rehoming a dog from our Basildon Rehoming Centre in Essex.

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.
