Adopt an Animal

Thank you for taking an interest in adopting an animal from Furlock Holmes. Where we are a rescue centre rather than a breeder or pet shop, things work slightly differently. Our animals come with the benefit of being vet-checked, neutered (where applicable), vaccinated (where applicable) and we also know the personality and characteristics of every single one of our animals. Our animals all deserve the best homes so we hope you don't mind us doing a few quick checks first to complete our homecheck process. 

Before applying to adopt from us, please ask yourself the following questions:

  1. Rabbits can live up to 10 or 12 years, cats can live up to 20 years and longer, and guinea pigs up to 6 or 8 years (sometimes even longer) - are you able to provide care for your new pet for this long? Even when your children have grown up and left home?

  2. Rabbits, cats and guinea pigs are not cheap pets. If you are unable to buy a suitable set-up for them, you are probably unable to afford vet bills if something goes wrong. Are you financially able to care for new pets?

  3. Rabbits need a lot of space. Please see the minimum requirements listed on our website. We follow the guidelines of the RSPCA and RWAF. Are you willing to give up a lot of space for your new animals?

  4. Rabbits, cats and guinea pigs are not children's pets. The responsibility of pets should be taken on by adults. If the children enjoy spending time with the rabbits, that is a bonus. Are you buying pets for your children or for the whole family?

If you still think adopting is for you, we are excited to hear from you! Please read our Adoption Policy and Adoption Process and then Apply to Adopt!
