Our centres are closed to walk-in members of the public and as of now, we will not be starting the rehoming process for any new adopters. If you are due to take a dog home in the next few days, we will contact you as soon as we can, please bear with us. Anyone who is due to have a rehoming appointment, unfortunately these have been suspended until further notice. Due to Government restrictions, we will be unable to take in dogs to our rehoming centres right now.

We’d like to reassure you that our wonderful staff will continue to provide the best possible care for our dogs, while avoiding any close interaction with each other.

Likes

Andi is a 5 year old Staffordshire Bull terrier Cross that loves her toys, particularly soft squeaky ones! She is very enthusiastic when it comes to food and will search high and low for a tasty treat. She loves having her meals in interactive ways such as; snuffle mats, puzzle feeders and kongs. Training does have to be made easy at first as she can become a little overwhelmed. Despite this, once she has mastered something, she is an expert!

Type of home needed

Andi arrived at the centre in Jan 2020, after being transferred from Dogs Trust Dublin. She was there for 2 years but sadly never found a home. Andi is trying her luck at Kenilworth and is hoping it will be the lucky charm she needs to find her forever home. Andi needs a slow intro to new people and she is looking for an adult only home where she won't be meeting lots of family members and friends, especially children. Andi is worried by traffic so is looking for a quiet location with areas to walk away from cars. She will need to be the only pet however, she can walk on lead with well-matched dogs. Her new home must have direct access from the house into a secure garden so that she can exercise, toilet and play in an area where she feels relaxed. As she hasn't been in a home since being on our care, the transition may be scary for her. We are looking for really patient people that have time to let her come around when she is ready. Andi spends time in our real-life room and can be left alone in there for a few hours with toys and things to keep her occupied.

More about me

Andi is a real sweetheart once she gets to know you. She is sometimes in the rehoming blocks but she predominantly lives in a quiet area of the centre so please call before travelling to visit her. Potential adopters would have to visit Andi multiple times before taking her home so that a bond can be built.

 

During these uncertain times, whilst we have had to unfortunately close our rehoming centres to the public, we’d like to reassure you that our wonderful staff will continue to provide the best possible care for our dogs. We’d like to take this opportunity to say a big thank you to those individuals, who are doing everything they can to make sure our dogs get fed, walked and looked after. We appreciate you thinking of us at what is a difficult time for all. If you would like to make a donation to support whilst we continue looking after the dogs in our care you can do so here...

How rehoming works

Thank you for your interest in Andi, who is based at Kenilworth (West Midlands). Please note this is not a reservation on this dog. To start the rehoming process you will need to go to a rehoming centre for a quick chat. Please find information below about what to expect during the rehoming process. We hope to see you soon.

  1. The average time between visiting a Rehoming Centre and taking your new pet home is just eight days. Every circumstance is different but this brief guide lets you know what you will experience when you decide to rehome a dog from us.
  2. The rehoming centre is your gateway to finding your new pet pooch. When you arrive at the centre you will be greeted in reception by a friendly face.
  3. During this first visit we will take a few details from you so we know what you are looking for. You will be able to visit the dogs and we'll advise you on how to find the right dog for your circumstance and that your circumstances will work for the dog too.
  4. We would like you to get to know your chosen dog before you take him home so, if you have any other dogs or family members, you may need to bring them along for a further visit to ensure the whole family is happy with the decision.
  5. The fee for rehoming a dog is £150 (£140 in Ballymena due to extra dog licence fees),for puppies its £150 adoption fee plus a £45 Dog School fee but every dog is vet checked, microchipped, and neutered as well as a very cool Dogs Trust lead and collar - so we think it's a good deal!
  6. On rehoming your new dog from Dogs Trust you can receive 4 weeks' free insurance from our partner Petplan, this covers your dog for any unexpected illnesses and injuries, for further details and to activate your 4 weeks' free trial visit the Petplan website.
  7. So now you are ready to take your new pal home, just one more step which is a pre-adoption talk. This ensures you are aware of the responsibilities of dog ownership and reminds you that we are always here when you need us!
  8. Get in touch with the centre your dog is located at to arrange a visit.
