Adoption Service

Animal Adoption…. Pet Re-homing Service

Whiskers and Wags are pleased to be able to offer something unique to pet lovers in the Louth area. Our pet re- homing service!

This is for small animals, Guinea Pigs, Hamsters, Gerbils, Pygmy Hedgehogs, Budgies , Parrots etc etc. Our policy is to offer a safe environment for unwanted small pets, pets whose owners can no longer keep their animals due to housing restrictions and pets whose owner has sadly passed away. We look after animals in our care as if they were our own pets, this enables us to get to know their personalities and behavioral traits.

Any animals brought to us will be kept in quarantine for two weeks to ensure they are healthy and fit for a new home. Should the need arise, they will be checked and treated by a vet before being put up for adoption.

It is important that you phone or message us via our facebook page, in advance of bringing your pet in to us to check that we have sufficient and suitable pet accommodation available.

Please note due to limited space in the shop, we are unable to consider larger animals , such as cats and dogs. What we can do for you though, is advertise your animals availability on our website and a notice board in our shop. We can also help you in liaising with local rescue centers to find suitable lodgings or foster care, until a forever home can be found.

Adoption

We care passionately about the animals in our care, so before discharging a pet to a new forever home please note the following:-

You must provide ID to show that you are over 18 (unless it obvious of course;-))

You must sign a document stating that you have not been convicted in the past for harming animals and have not been banned from having animals.

You must be prepared to give your new pet the attention that he or she requires. Remember … a pet is for life!

Our re-homing venture was set up because of our love for animals and is non profit making. However where possible we would ask for an appropriate donation towards any vet bills and any minor board and lodging ( food) costs incurred while your new pet was staying with us .

Along with your pet, you will also receive an adoption pack which will include an adoption certificate, plus some basic information on the care and needs of your animal, along with contact details for your local veterinary practices

As a big bonus you will also receive our SPECIAL DISCOUNT CARD which will entitle you to a massive 10% reduction on the cost of your new pets food requirements for his or her lifetime here at Whiskers and Wags … now that’s a real bargain!
