Adopting a pet

How, and why, to adopt a cat or dog from Bath Cats and Dogs Home

Choosing to adopt is just the start of a wonderful journey – we'd love to be a part of it with you. We've plenty of information below so you can decide if adopting is right for you.

Please note that viewing animals is by appointment only; you cannot walk around the catteries and kennels. Instead you start here online and with an application form – choose The adoption process below to find out more.

DECEMBER 2023 A few of our Rehoming team are in training, so please bear with us as response to applications will be slower than usual this month. If you have applied then an automated email confirms your application is with us and we will call you within 2 weeks. Thank you!
