Covid-19 update: our rehoming centres aren’t open for public browsing, but we’re still rehoming and taking in dogs, with measures in place to keep staff and adopters safe. Find out more about how national Covid-19 restrictions are affecting our rehoming procedures and other activity.

Our rehoming centres aren’t open for public browsing but we’re still rehoming and taking in dogs, with new processes in place to keep staff, visitors and adopters safe.

For dogs we know will thrive straight away in their new home, we’re matching them with their new homes virtually and delivering them contact-free. Current restrictions mean we can only facilitate adoptions local to our centres and not across Countries or anywhere there are travel restrictions. We’re not able to make appointments for dogs to meet their family before going home, but we can register interest to arrange appointments when restrictions ease.

We’re currently experiencing an unprecedented amount of interest, with some dogs getting several hundred applications. Please bear with us, we’re doing everything we can to find our dogs their forever homes.

Rue

I'm looking for a new home...

About Rue

Centre:
Breed:
Age:
5 to 7 Years
Sex:
Male

Likes

Rue is typical of the Collie breed, handsome, sensitive and extremely intelligent! He is looking for patient owners who are going to help him slowly adjust to the sights and sounds that come with living in a home environment. It will take a few meets here at the centre for Rue to get to know you, but the love and excitement he provides you once he does, will make it all worthwhile.

Type of home needed

Rue is hoping to find an adult only home where he will be the only pet, in a rural location, where he can go on quiet walks away from traffic and other loud noises. For days when he doesn't feel like going out for a walk access to a large secure garden will make him a happy chappy. His owners must also be willing to provide Rue with the mental stimulation he needs.

More about me

Rue needs time to get to know his new family before he can go home. Due to government guidelines we can't offer meetings at the rehoming centre at the moment but we can start the process remotely with Zoom. If you are interested in applying to adopt Rue, click on the 'Come and Meet Me button'. Applications will close when I have found a suitable match.

 

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.

How rehoming works

Thank you for your interest in Rue, who is based at Loughborough. Please note this is not a reservation on this dog. If you think you could be a good match give us a call on the number below

Our rehoming process is a bit different at the moment! We’re now matching dogs with their new families virtually and delivering dogs to their new homes, with social distancing measures in place to help keep staff and adopters safe. For dogs who need more time to get to know their new family, you can come and meet them at our rehoming centres by appointment. More info about how our new rehoming process works below.

When you rehome a dog, we’ll give you your welcome bag, which includes a new collar and lead, and our dog care handbook with microchip and insurance details. Plus, to help your new addition settle in we’ll give you a 2kg bag of Wainwright’s dry dog food, courtesy of the Pets at Home VIP Club, unless they have been fed on a different food for dietary or veterinary reasons.
