Please provide details of your neutering policy.

Are animals (routinely dogs/cats but can apply to other animal types) neutered before rehoming? If not, in what circumstances would animals not be neutered (e.g. very young animals, old animals, medical reasons), and what procedures are in place to ensure that the new home carries out the neuter/spay in a timely manner after adoption?

Please provide details of your homechecking policy.

Please provide details of your vaccination policy.

Please provide details of your worming & flea treatment policies.

Please provide details of your microchipping policy.

If the rehoming doesn't work out, will you always take an animal back in to your care? Please provide details of your policy.

Can RHU staff/volunteers contact you about animals needing rescue backup that have been posted in our 'backup needed' section?:
