Roly now Caleb is home

Moving to Farrington Way gave us the room to think about adoption of animals again.  The Nottingham and Notts branch is not a rehoming centre so we have had to think out of the box to facilitate adoption.

Rescue centres have the capacity for people to view several animals in one appointment we went for a more bespoke experience.  We advertise selected animals, some with special requirements, via RSPCA National and our social media platforms.  It’s a one to one meeting that allows for plenty of time for the animal to settle and potential adopters time.

Roly had been a communal cat who came into our care with a dislocated jaw. He had all the treatment he required and of course lots of TLC too.  He is such a cool dude of a cat and takes everything in his stride. We were thrilled to receive an application for him and made arrangements for his prospective new owners to come here to meet him.  There’s no rush, it’s a relaxed environment.  It’s usually the first time the animal has been in our adoption suite so we allow for exploration and inquisitiveness. There’s also no pressure to say yes, we want adopters to feel happy and above all, our priority is the animal.

Despite Kine and Dan saying before they arrived that they would ‘go home and think about Roly’ our little ginger fella worked his magic and the couple decided they would like to offer him a new home!

Roly is the first of many animals we hope to rehome.  Adoption gives us the opportunity to engage once more with people through the rehoming process, forging relationships that, in the past, have provided ongoing support over years.
