Adopt a furry friend

Adoption Information

The adoption fee will include sterilization of your pet, up-to-date deworming and vaccinations, and a microchip. Should you adopt an animal that’s still too young to be sterilized, a sterilization voucher will be issued. Cats over 6 months of age are also tested for FeLV/HiV and Leukemia before they are rehomed. This means that the value of all the treatment your new pet will receive, by far exceeds the adoption fee, and you’ll be a hero for giving a home to a rescue animal!
Please note Sterilization of your Wet Nose pet is compulsory, due to the huge numbers of unwanted and homeless animals in South Africa.


The best way to ensure that your new dog will get along with your other dogs, is to bring your dogs with you to Wet Nose when you come to choose a friend for them. Once you have a few dogs in mind, we’ll help you to socialize your dogs with the new dogs, one at a time. That way, you can let your dog(s) decide which one of your choices they want to be friends with. We’ll also help you establish which dogs are the most dominant etc. and make recommendations as to what kind of personality to look for in your new dog. This usually ensures that there’ll be harmony at home and that your new dog will fit into the family just fine.

Once you’ve fallen in love with your new best friend and you’ve decided to adopt, you’ll need to complete an application form/adoption contract. Your ID book or driver’s license will be required and property inspections apply.
