Animals For Rehoming

Here are our animals in need of rehoming:

Throughout the years we've rehomed many animals, view a selection of the animals that we've rehomed below:

Animals that we have rehomed >

Remember, only through the support of our volunteers, adopters and donors, that we can help these poor animals. Find out more about Warrington Animal Welfare on our home page and how you can help on our get involved page.

Meeting the Animals

  • Dogs/Puppies - dog viewings are by appointment only, as they are in various locations e.g. the centre, foster care etc.  We are not able to handle people who turn up unexpectedly to view dogs, due to the small nature of the site.  We appreciate your understanding.
  • Cats/Kittens/Rabbits – as the majority are based at the centre, we welcome visitors who are serious about adopting.  We are open everyday, 12noon – 4pm (till 7pm on Thursdays).  A volunteer will show you around and advise you about suitable animals that would suit you.
  • Guinea Pigs - we have Guinea Pigs at the centre which you are welcome to visit.  However most of our Guinea Pigs are in foster care, contact us with your details and we will pass on to the fosterer to arrange a visit.

WAW Rehoming Policy  

  • WAW do not re-home to families with young children under 5 yrs.  Please respect our policy and find out more about the reasons here.
  • Single Kittens are not to be left alone for a significant period of time e.g. full work days, until they are older.  If you plan on leaving your new kitten, we recommend you choose an older one (6 months +) or consider a pair of kittens.
  • Cats/Kittens will not be rehomed on or near a main/busy road - e.g. dual carriageways, busy 'A' roads, motorways, busy cut-throughs.
  • Cats/Kittens should have access to an outside space, so we will not rehome to apartments above the ground floor.
  • Cats/Kittens can not be rehomed as 'house cats' - due to the nature of cats, we cannot predict their behaviour in a home (exceptions to this policy include; older cats / cats that have come to us as house cats / cats with a condition or disability).
  • Dogs are not to be left alone for a significant period of time e.g. a full working day, where suitable care has not been put in place e.g. doggy day care, an arranged visit, coming home for lunch etc.
  • Dogs must have a secure garden.
  • Rabbits/Guinea Pigs must have suitable accommodation and access to outside space.
  • Home-checks within a reasonable distance of Warrington. 
  • We reserve the right to carry out a 'vet check' for all adoptors.
  • Existing pets should be neutered (unless there are medical reasons).
  • If you are in rented accommodation, you will need the permission of your landlord.
We will happily discuss and advise.  More information on suitable rabbit and guinea pig accommodation is available on our advice page.

Adoption Information 

Adoptions take around 20 minutes to complete (longer if you are adopting multiple animals).  Please note we do not have a card machine, so all payments must be cash or cheque.  

The adoption fee includes; neutering, micro-chipping, vaccinations, flea treatment worm treatment and four weeks free insurance.

We have produced a number of WAW fact sheets to help you settle in your new pets, visit our advice page to find out more.

Rehoming Assistance

WAW can help you rehome your pet(s) in a number of ways:
  • Through our rescue centre - when space becomes available we can take your pet into the centre (or a foster home).  You will surrender your pet to WAW and your pet will be put up for rehoming via our networks.
  • Home to Home rehoming - we can use our networks to find your pet a suitable new home, whilst they stay with you.  We will visit you in your home to assess your pet and if suitable we will advertise.  WAW will screen potential adoptors and make arrangements for them to meet your pet.  Once a new home is identified you will need to bring your pet to the centre and compelte the surrender paperwork prior to the adoption (which usually takes place the same day).  Like with all adoptions the new owners will be fully homechecked.
All animals must be assessed prior to WAW agreeing to rehome.
