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 Rue

5 to 7 Years


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

6 year old Rue requires a quiet rural home with a maximum of 2 adults aged 18 and over and no other pets. He will need access to a large, secure and quiet garden with high fences. His new owners must be willing to provide him with the mental stimulation he needs. Rue's new home must have easy access to quiet walks without having to pass over busy roads. A home with minimal visitors and no visiting children will also be essential for Rue.

More about me

Rue needs time to get to know his new family before he can go home. According to current government guidelines we can start the rehoming process remotely with Zoom and may also organise meets at the rehoming centre. If you are interested in applying to adopt Rue, click on the 'Rehoming me starts here' button below. Rue will be removed from the website when we have identified a potential match. If a suitable home isn't found, we will repost Rue's profile on the website.


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 Loughborough Rehoming Centre in Leicestershire.

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.
