Animals in need of a loving home

 

Let's make more Happy Endings!

We believe rescue pets make wonderful pets!

We also believe that anyone who gives a rescued animal a second chance and a place in their heart and home is wonderful too!

We care and rehome abused, unwanted and at-risk animals, primarily those brought to us by RSPCA Inspectors and Animal Collection Officers. We do not have an Animal Centre - the animals in our care are housed in private boarding establishments or with foster carers until we can find homes for them. This means that appointments need to be made for viewing any animal. It also means that we cannot accept unwanted animals from the public - if you are looking to rehome an unwanted pet, try these contacts.

 

Adopting an animal from us

All our animals are neutered, microchipped, de-fleed, wormed and vaccinated prior to rehoming - the adoption fee provides a small contribution towards these costs:

Dogs - 105           Cats - 70     Kittens 85       Rabbits - 20
(see an example of how this fee actually saves you money)

 

If you would like to meet an animal, we can arrange for one of our volunteers to meet you at the boarding or fostering establishment.

 

We will carry out a home visit before you adopt an animal from us so that we can discuss the requirements of the pet you have chosen - it also an opportunity for you to ask questions. We follow RSPCA guidelines when rehoming our animals and, occasionally, we may have to say no.

Dogs needing a home

For advice on how to care for a dog, look at the RSPCA's dog welfare pages.

 

Our dogs are neutered, microchipped,de-fleed, wormed and vaccinated prior to rehoming - the adoption fee provides a small contribution towards these costs and saves you having to pay the full cost for these items at your local vets once you get your new pet home.

Please have a look at our our dog rehoming process. Before you come to see the dog that you are interested in, please complete a 'Perfect Match' form and bring it with you.

 

Jess

Came to us in February 2018

Jess

 

Jess is a 7-year-old Staffy girl who needs her forever home. She could live in a home with older children, but would need to be the only pet.

Jess is a sweet lass who will reward her new owners' care and attention.

Please contact Pauline on 07599 969 647 if Jess could become a part of your life. If there is no answer, leave a message stating which dog you are interested in, and giving your name and phone number. Pauline will phone you back. We do not respond to emails about rehoming our animals.

 

 

Cheeco

Came to us in April 2018

Cheeco

 

Cheeko is a bull lurcher, and a youngster at not quite two years old. He is a very sweet boy, with the most amazing ears! Although he is big, he is gentle. The biggest problem that you will have with him is keeping off the settee, as he will want cuddles all of the time! He needs a bit of training, and somewhere to stretch those long legs! You should be prepared to train him and work with his boisterous nature. He loves toys and games!

We think Cheeco would do well in an adult-only home or one with older children. He could settle with another friendly dog, but we wouldn't recommend him with a cat.

Please contact Pauline on 07599 969 647 if you would like to meet Cheeco. If there is no answer, leave a message stating which dog you are interested in and giving your name and phone number. Pauline will phone you back. We do not respond to emails about rehoming our animals.

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

Cats needing a home

For advice on how to care for a cat, look at the RSPCA's cat welfare pages.

 

Our cats are neutered, microchipped, de-fleed, wormed and vaccinated prior to rehoming - the adoption fee provides a small contribution towards these costs and saves you having to pay the full cost for these items at your local vets once you get your new pet home (have a look at the typical costs for providing the above treatments and see how much you save).

Before you come to see the cat or kitten that you are interested in, please complete a 'Perfect Match' form and bring it with you.

 

Mr Frosty

Came to us in March 2018

 

Mr Frosty is 6 years old. He is a lovely, friendly boy who is very chilled and likes company. He will make a wonderful companion cat.

Mr Frosty has FIV (see below for more info), so he will need to live in a home as the only cat. To prevent the spread of FIV to neighbouring cats, Mr Frosty will need to be kept as an indoor-only cat - this may make him an ideal companion for homes and families that wouldn't normally consider a cat due to lack of outsde access. Mr Frosty should be fine with a cat-friendly dog and with children.

FIV in cats is similar to the human virus, HIV, in that it weakens the cat's immune system.

FIV cannot be passed to humans or to other non-feline pets, but it can be passed to other cats via blood, saliva and other body fluids (the virus is unable to survive for long periods outside of the cat so it cannot be transferred to other cats from your hands or clothes). Cats primarily pick up the virus through bite wounds caused by fighting or play, by mating behaviour, or as a kitten from an infected mother.

Once a cat has FIV is has it for life. Many infected cats have years of normal life and will die from something else entirely before their FIV infection causes any problems. Signs of FIV are varied but usually result from a weakened immune system and therefore a vulnerability to other infections. Many FIV cats can live to a good age and FIV does not affect their character, nor does the FIV virus cause cats any pain or discomfort.

Please contact Pam on 01270 811013 if you could like Mr Frosty to be your indoor companion. If there is no answer, leave a message stating which cat you are interested in and giving your name and phone number. Pam will always phone you back. We do not respond to emails about rehoming our animals.
