Adopting from us

The Starlight Trust is an animal welfare and rescue organisation based in Surrey

Our primary aim is to find great, permanent homes for the animals in our care. This is something we take very seriously and we want applicants to take seriously too. In a nutshell this is what we ask of our homes:-

– that you agree to be interviewed via video call or over the phone about the type of home you can provide and be homechecked by one of our volunteers.

– that you be willing to sign a contract agreeing to care for the animal in accordance with our care sheets and return the animal to us if you can no longer care for it.

– that the animals live in a home as a pet. We do not home animals to schools, zoos etc and we do not home animals for breeding, feeding or any purpose other than as a companion animal.

– that you be proactive in keeping in touch to provide regular updates on the animals.

– that you appreciate that, just because these animals are small. this does not mean they are less important, and be willing to provide an excellent, dedicated home where the animals will be valued. We passionately believe that small pets are EVERY bit as important as cats, dogs, horses etc and deserve the same level of care and consideration.

– that you ideally live in the South East of England though there may be some flexibility in this.
