We adopted Toby from ARC and the whole process was amazing from start to finish. The adoption took place during lockdown but this didn’t hinder the process at all. Emily at ARC was super speedy in answering all emails during the initial process and the pre-adoption meeting was set up rapidly. Toby was a stray and had only been with ARC for about a week when we adopted him, so although not much was known about him, it was great to meet Toby’s foster carers and to have a handover with them. It was also great to know that he was coming from a comfy home where he had had a week to sleep off the trauma of life on the streets! He has settled in brilliantly and is already best friends with our 4 year old. I approached many organisations in the months prior to finding ARC and ARC was by far the most efficient, friendly, approachable and organised. Thank you all so much.
