The Leicester Animal Rescue Fairwinds Shelter takes in and re-homes cats and dogs. We aim to give animals a long term permanent home that they can feel loved and secure in.
We take cats into the shelter providing they are healthy. A temperament check is carried out and we ask for any medical and vaccination records. Please note there is normally a waiting list for animals to be accepted into the shelter.
We ask for a minimum donation of £10 when accepting an animal, to go towards upkeep and vet treatment prior to re-homing. If you wish for us to consider taking in your pet then please call us on (0116) 259 9399.
We aim to re-home about 100 dogs/puppies and 200 cats/kittens per year and work very hard to ensure that they are safe and comfortable in their forever homes. We achieve this by providing them with everything they need while they are with us and ensuring that both our animals and their new owners are aware of what they are taking on, so they can live long and happy lives.
Things to consider before adopting a dog:- Am I able to give the exercise and mental stimulation a dog requires on a daily basis? Will the dog have someone with him/her for most of the day? We insist that the dog is not left alone for more than 4 hours in the day. Am I prepared for the costs associated with keeping a dog (i.e. vets bills and food)? All animals are micro-chipped, adults are spayed/neutered and flea/worming treatment is kept up to date.
We will ask that you visit any dog you are interested in at least twice. Dog introductions may take up to 3 visits.
A home visit is required before any dog is adopted. This is to ensure that the environment is suitable (i.e. garden has lockable gate and fences are secure).
Please call to book a viewing appointment. Minimum charge for our dogs is £125.00
