If you are looking to adopt a pet, please visit
You can search by animal type and postcode. Each animal available for adoption should have images, descriptions, and specific requirements detailed on their listing, in order, to help them find their perfect match.
There will also be location and contact information on each listing. If you see an animal you are interested in adopting, please contact the branch or centre at which they are located.
The Sunderland, Hartlepool & South Tyneside Branch does not currently have any animal establishment facilities, therefore we do not have any animals available for adoption at this time.
Advice for Adopters
Once you've taken your new family pet home, the RSPCA have prepared loads of free online content for you, organised by species, to use whenever you need to - why not take a look at their pet care advice?
Remember, we're still here for advice and support. If you can't find the information you need get in touch with the centre you adopted from and they'll do their best to help with any questions you may have.
