Terms and Conditions for rehoming an animal


What is the process for rehoming an animal?  Please call the main number 0203 37 45 98 59 or email us and we will give you all the details you need to start the process.


What happens if I don't get along my new rehome animal? Animal Samaritans will always endeavour to take an animal back if the re-home is unsuccessful, but we may not be able to assist immediately as we would have to make sure that we have suitable fostering arrangements in place. 

Please note - Any donations we receive for animals that are rehomed are is NON-REFUNDABLE. Any intermediate expenses incurred from rehoming the animal may not be refunded.  


What is your fee for re-homing a cat?  We charge a fee which goes towards our costs, such as neutering, inoculations, worming. etc. This fee goes into the Charity’s central funds so that we can continue our work. The fee is NON-REFUNDABLE. You should consider taking out pet insurance to help with any future costs.

What is the home check for? We carry out home checks to make sure your home is suitable for one of our re-home animals to be safe and secure. We will advise you if we think changes need to be made to satisfy the requirements. Once these changes are made, we will be happy to place an animal with you. 


Can i apply to rehome a pet if I have children? We do not rehome to families with young children, (under 6) however, please consider helping in another way. Perhaps with a donation or sponsoring an animal until your children are older and re-homing is available.

Would you help with veterinary bills if I my circumstances change, and I was unable to meet the costs myself?  Animal Samaritans is here to help pet owners meet the cost of veterinary charges. Ask your vet to send by email to: a brief written report about the condition which requires treatment together with any follow-up procedures and the costs of the treatment, including medication either one-off or continual future costs. The Trustees meet regularly to consider requests for financial assistance and you would normally receive a decision with 28 days. If your request requires an urgent response, please ask the vet to include the words: ‘Urgent request’ in the subject line of the email.

I would like to foster animals for you. How do I apply? If you email us or phone our central number (0203 37 45 98 59) or email us, we will direct you enquiry to the appropriate re-homing co-ordinator. Once we have had a chat and carried out a home check, we will discuss with you the fostering process. We are always looking for good foster homes.
