Pet Rescue and Adoption in Birmingham

by BecSorby (follow)
Give an animal a new lease on life by adopting them from one of these rescue centres or shelters.

You may be at a stage of life where your children are interested in getting a pet. Why not consider adopting a pet from an animal rescue centre or shelter around Birmingham? Not only is this an opportunity to gain a new family member, but you would also be giving an animal a second chance for a loving home.

You can adopt all sorts of animals and typically before adoption, they are flea treated, microchipped, wormed and spayed before going to a new home. Animals are usually given a behavioural and health assessment before being adopted out, and in most cases, you will be given the opportunity for your children to meet the animal before making a final decision.

If you are thinking about adopting a pet, here are some places to find one and gain some further valuable advice and resources about pet adoption and let you know any costs involved. They can also help you decide whether rehoming a pet is the right decision for your family.

You can also help by fostering an animal until they are ready for adoption. This may be a good option for families who love dogs but canít adopt a pet at the present time.
