Making the decision to part with a pet is one of the hardest things to do, and is a last resort for many owners.
We always try to give people struggling to keep their pet, as many options as possible. For example, maybe it would be possible to rehome a pet with a family member.
If it is behavioural related, we do recommend they get checked out by a vet or seek the advice of a clinical animal behaviourist first.
Some owners can find themselves parting with a pet because they can no longer afford the medical bills. However there are schemes and organisations out there that may be able to help those receiving low-income state benefits with the costs. Pet insurance is also highly recommended to help cover unexpected vet bills in the future.
If you have explored all possible avenues, we will try and help by taking your pet in for rehoming. However we do have to prioritize those that are in need, so you may have to be prepared to wait until we have the space available.
If you wish to re-home an animal through the RSPCA Radcliffe Animal Centre please call 0115 855 0222 to discuss this with our reception team.
Please understand our space is limited and priority is given to RSPCA inspectors that need to bring animals in. However we will try our very best to help you when space allows us to.
