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 Ella

8 and over


Meet Ella the beautiful Staffy Cross. 12 years young and still learning. Ella is a very clever lady; she loves learning new skills and will do tricks for treats. Ella can be a little nervous when handled so will require patient owners that are willing to take things slowly. Once she feels comfortable, she likes a fuss and will paw at you if you stop stroking her before she is ready. She loves playing with her teddies, especially laying on a blanket with them and chewing/shredding them. She will also chew on her teddies for comfort if she is feeling stressed. Ella enjoys her treats and is very partial to a mint dentastick.

Type of home needed

Ella will need to be the only dog in the home and would prefer to live in a low dog populated area as she finds other dogs quite stressful. Ella has stiff back legs - which she is being treated for - so avoiding stairs is advised. Regardless of her age and her stiff joints she does still enjoy a walkies. Ella can live with children aged 16 and over.

More about me

If Ella sounds like your perfect match please get in contact to express an interest. Please note that if you rent your property you must be able to provide written permission from your landlord to keep a dog to complete the rehome process. Due to expected high levels of interest you will only hear back from us if we are able to proceed with your application. We will conduct a rehoming interview with successful applicants and home visit via video. Access to emails and video technology will be essential for this process.


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 Canterbury Rehoming Centre in Kent.

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.
