See our animals available for adoption!


We ask for a minimum donation when you adopt an animal to cover some of our costs. Our vet fees alone are more than £5,000 a month.

ou can pay your adoption fees directly via PayPal, GoCardless or bank transfer. If you cover the fees payable in PayPal or GoCardless, your money will go even further to helping the animals in our care. Please make sure to say which animal you are adopting on your payment to help us track our income. You can also complete this form with details of your payment – thank you!


Thousands of healthy, loveable pets are abandoned every year in the UK. And we always have waiting lists of pets needing to come into rescue. This is why we ask you to Adopt Don’t Shop!

A rescue like ARC, which is a registered charity, has these other benefits:

– All of our animals are healthchecked and professionally sexed

– Cats and kittens are neutered (if old enough), vaccinated, wormed and flead

– Rabbits are vaccinated and neutered (except for females under 6 months old)

– Other small animals including guinea pigs and rats may be neutered if male and at risk of breeding.

– As we foster animals in our own homes, we understand their behaviour and personality and will help you match an animal to your needs.

– We also give you follow-up support and pledge to take back an animal if for any reason your adoption doesn’t work out.
