Rivid Pets

You may have noticed a few professional photographs of some of our animals available for adoption
on our website. These stunning pictures have been taken by David Oakley, who kindly volunteers his time us once a week. David has his own website - please visit him at Rivid Pet Portraiture. He has an amazing affinity with the animals and the patience of a saint.



Featured dog

Steffi was surrendered to us because her owner moved. Despite her age, Steffi still retains a youthful vibrancy. She just loves playing ball & squeaky toys delight her for hours. She plays with a ball like a little kitten – so cute! She is affectionate, intelligent & very smiley. She would suit a very loving, warm & welcoming family. Steffi qualifies for our Golden Oldies Program.

Featured cats


Jem & Jess were surrendered to us because their owners lived in a rental with a no pets policy. They are sweet & quiet girls, affectionate & soft. They aren’t in our usual viewing area at the moment so if you’d like to consider them for adoption, please ask one of our adoptions staff to introduce you to them.
