Lovely squishy Reef is looking for his new home

Reef for adoption

About Reef




- Domestic Short Hair


2 years 2 months.



Hello there, my name is Reef. I came to the RSPCA as a stray needing a bit of help. I had an abscess on my face, so needed some TLC. I am feeling much better now and have been neutered, vaccinated and treated for fleas and worms. I really like my food and ended up getting a bit chonky! So have been on a diet and would need to continue a monitored diet to make sure I do not get too overweight again.

When I first arrived I was really not sure of people, but in time I have become quite fond of humans giving me attention, and really like a fuss now and am a little bit of a big soppy boy. I would need a quiet home with no children. Once I am settled into my new home I would need access to the outside world. Could you give me my new home?

Would you like to give me a home?

Our Adoption Process

There are a few simple steps to go through before welcoming your new pet into your home.

Step 1:

Complete an application form

Once we have received your completed form, one of our animal welfare team members will contact you to arrange either a physical or virtual home visit before offering a viewing either at our Branch office, at the fosterer, or at the private boarding establishment the animal is being housed at.

Step 2:

Getting to know each other

We conduct a physical/virtual home check and once this has been passed, you can arrange to view the animal at a time that works best for you and the fosterer. Our home checks are conducted by our Animal Welfare Team who will contact you directly to arrange a time that suits you. Home checks are a common practice when adopting from most animal welfare organisations, and are done as part of our duty of care to ensure our animals find an appropriate home, so please do not be offended when asked to arrange one. They are nothing to worry about and our staff are suitably trained to make sure the process is as relaxed as possible – they are also a great chance for you to ask any questions you may have about your potential new pet.

Step 3:

Welcoming your new pet

Once the home visit has been conducted, we will arrange the adoption process to be completed at a time suitable to you and the fosterer. Please note: as part of your adoption from us, your new pet will be neutered, microchipped, vaccinated and will have received internal & external parasite treatment. If the animal is too young at the time of adoption, we will supply you with a voucher for neutering and pay for their first vaccinations. You will also be provided with a complete veterinary history of your new pet and 4 weeks pet insurance with PetPlan. This can take up to a week to be compiled so there may be a delay between a home visit being approved and the adoption appointment taking place.
