Our rehoming centres are not open for public browsing but you can still make an appointment to adopt or bring a dog to us. We’ve set up new processes which include social distancing measures to help keep staff, visitors and adopters safe. We’re now matching dogs with their new homes virtually and delivering dogs contact-free. For dogs who need more time to get to know their new family, you can now meet them at our rehoming centres by appointment.

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.

I'm looking for a new home...

About Pippin

8 and over


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.Pippin is a 10 year old Terrier cross. He is a great character and fun to be around, he likes to keep his mind active but equally needs to learn how to relax. Pippin is a sweetheart but can be worried around new people, he will need patient owners willing to give him the time to build a bond who are prepared to visit him multiple times a week until he is comfortable

Type of home needed

Pippin is looking for a quiet STRICTLY ADULT ONLY home in a rural setting that have experience with nervous rescue dogs. He is looking for a family that has no more than 2 adults living in the home. Due to Pippin being worried he will need to be walked in area's with limited amounts of people and dogs. He would benefit from having his own room to call his safe space when there are visitors, and somewhere he can engage in enrichment activities without being disturbed. Pippin will need new owners who will give him time to settle in and understand that he will need a lot of time spent working towards completing multiple training programmes that our training team will give ongoing support with. For this reason, he is looking for a home that will have limited visitors and no children visiting.

More about me

Pippin is looking for his new owners to be around most of the day to begin with but could potentially be left for a few hours once this has been built up slowly. Pippin needs to be the ONLY PET in the home. Due to the amount of visits Pippin requires to get to know new people we can only accept applications from people that live within an hour of the centre.


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 are now able to start the search for new homes for a small number of our awesome dogs. This will really help us to support even more dogs who are most at risk of being put to sleep as a result of this crisis. We have been overwhelmed by your offers of support, and we wouldn’t be able to do any of this without your help. 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, looked after and, as soon as we are able, finding them their forever home. 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 Pippin, who is based at Newbury (Berkshire). 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. We can’t register interest for dogs who aren’t available for rehoming. 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.
