Re-homing Disclaimer

Oak Tree Animals' Charity cannot guarantee that any animal seen on the website will be at the centre upon visiting. Although this site is regularly updated, there may be occasions when an animal appearing on the website has already been re-homed.

Oak Tree Animals' Charity cannot guarantee that any animal seen on this website will be suitable for an individual prospective owner. The animals we re-home have differing individual needs and can only be matched to a new home following an application and interview which will be assessed by one of our staff. Please be aware that under no circumstances can we reserve an animal until this assessment has been completed. Please note that you have to be 18 years old or over to re-home an animal from Oak Tree Animals' Charity.

Oak Tree Animals' Charity cannot accept responsibility for the temperament of any animal once it has been re-homed. All animals are re-homed at our discretion and we reserve the right to refuse an application to re-home an animal without reason.

Oak Tree Animals' Charity animals are given thorough health and temperament assessments. This gives us an insight into their character and enables us to make a considered decision as to which type of home would be best for the animal. However, once an animal has settled into a new home, his or her behaviour can sometimes change. Oak Tree Animals' Charity can only assess an animal on the behaviour it displays while in our care. Oak Tree Animals' Charity will offer support and behaviour advice to owners of animals re-homed by Oak Tree Animals' Charity. Please contact admin@oaktreeanimals.org.uk for further information.
