Rehoming by appointment

Our rehoming centres are open by appointment only. We're still rehoming, but we're doing things a little differently.

About Alfie

2 to 5 Years


Alfie is a sweetheart Collie X. He loves human attention and can socialise well with other dos. He enjoys spending time with people most of the day. Alfie does not like to be left alone in the home and likes to be part of the family and not kept seperately for long periods of time.

Type of home needed

Alfie needs a home that he will have time to settle down in. He can be quite anxious in new environments and may take some time to settle. Alfie will require 1-2 meets at the centre. Alfie can live with 16 years plus, with another suitable dog and can travel well in the car. Alfie would be best suited to a home with previous dog experience.

More about me

Alfie is a lovely 3 year old boy - with loads of love to give to his new loving home.Applications will close for Alfie once 30 have been accepted. Thank you.

Thank you for your interest in rehoming a dog from our Ballymena Rehoming Centre in Northern Ireland.

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.

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.
