Our rehoming process

Our rehoming process is carefully tailored to each applicant, so please allow plenty of time.

Our rehoming fee is £135 for dogs (over 6 months) or £165 for puppies (under 6 months).

The fee is £75 for cats (over 6 months), £85 for kittens (under 6 months), £120 for pair of cats or £130 for a pair of kittens. 

This includes:

  • Microchipping
  • Initial vaccinations, flea and worming treatment 
  • A collar, identification tag and lead 

In many cases your cat or dog will be neutered. Each rehomed animal will leave Battersea with four weeks' free Petplan insurance so that right from the start, your dog or cat will be covered for accidents and new illnesses as they settle in to their new surroundings. You will also receive a starter pack of food, advice and special offers.

We rehome all over the country, but you'll need to be able to collect a dog or cat from one of our three sites. Please visit one of our centres to start the rehoming process, you can also view our current residents when you visit.

Most applicants will require a home visit but if you live too far away for this, you'll need to provide a letter of recommendation from a vet or rescue centre. In some cases we may request you ask a local rescue centre to carry out a home visit. Please note, this doesn't guarantee you'll be able to rehome an animal from us. 

Battersea has dogs and cats of all ages, colours, shapes and sizes, each with its different personality and temperament. Each animal is assessed to find out what it's like and what sort of home, lifestyle and environment would best suit it.
