S P E C I A L   H O M E   N E E D E D 

Name - Dolly
Age -  2 years
Breed - Chihuahua cross

Dolly is a very loving dog but sadly, her past circumstances have made her rather jumpy and nervous at times. She takes a while to get to know people and so her new owner will need patience.

She has not had a great start and has little socialisation skills with other dogs. She needs to be an ‘only dog’ in her new home and the new owner will have to introduce her to other dogs with care and supervision.

So far during assessment and training, we have found she has taken confidence from a stable and steady calm dog but is not tolerant of a boisterous dog. She has learned to sit and stay but will need further training in her new home.

She is spayed, up to date with worm / flea / vaccinations.


A special home is needed for this beautiful girl but we think she will make the right person a very special companion.

  Name - Roxy
Age - 6 months old
Breed - Belgian shepherd (Malinois)

Roxy is a lovely girl, but needs to go to someone who knows this breed. They need plenty of training. She can live with others dogs but is not cat tested.
Spayed, up to date flea worm vaccinations.

Terms and Conditions for rehoming an animal


What is the process for rehoming an animal?  Please call the main number 0208 303 1859 or email us and we will give you all the details you need to start the process.


I only want to rehome a certain breed of dog? Can we choose?  Because of the nature of animal rescue, we cannot predict what animals which may come to us looking for new forever homes. We will take your details and place an animal with you if we think you would be a good match. We carry out extensive home checks to ensure the dog is suitable for your living environments and situation. 


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. 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.


Are the re-home animals FREE? No, we charge a small fee to cover our costs, veterinary, worming..etc. This fee is put straight back into the funds to help the next animal that requires our assistance. Any donations we receive for animals that are rehomed are is NON-REFUNDABLE. 

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.


I would like to foster animals for you. How do I apply? If you email us or phone our central number (0208 303 1859) 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.
