Animals in need of a loving home

 

Let's make more Happy Endings!

We do not have an Animal Centre, so we cannot accept unwanted animals from the public. We assist RSPCA Inspectors and Animal Collection Officers who are dealing with abused and at-risk animals by caring for such animals in private boarding establishments until we can find homes for them.

If you are looking to rehome your 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 - £95           Cats - £60     Kittens £80       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 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

Please have a look at our our dog rehoming process. Our dogs are neutered, microchipped,de-fleed, wormed and vaccinated prior to rehoming - the adoption fee of £95 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..

Tia

November 2015

Tia 

Tia is a Staffy cross, about five years old. Very affectionate and happy.

She likes some dogs and not others so always needs supervision. She will probably be best in a home where someone can put the time into training her properly, and not leave her for too long as she gets bored easily.

January 2016 update: Tia is getting fed up with kennels now. She loves to play football - its a joy watching her trying to figure out which way you are going to kick the ball! In the last of the photos above she is wagging her tail while she tries to make you kick the ball again. She responds well to training, and just needs to find a forever home of her own.

Please contact Pauline on 07599 969 647 if you would like to meet Tia. 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.

 

Sam & Lady

January 2016

Sam & Lady

Sam is a male Jack Russell, about 10 years old, and Lady is a Yorkshire Terrier cross, around 3 years old.

They were the victim of awful cruelt, and, as they are anxious apart, we donít want to separate them after everything else that they've been through.

Although they are trained - Sam will come to call and sit, Lady is very headstrong and wonít always listen to orders! But she is small enough not to be a problem, and a real character, and Sam is very calm in nature - he has lovely colour eyes. You can see how much they like treats in the photographs! We really want to home Sam and Lady together.

Please contact Pauline on 07599 969 647 if you think this lovely pair could fit into your life and home. If there is no answer, leave a message stating which dogs 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.

 

David

January 2016

David

David is a male Staffy/Boxer(?) cross, about two years old.

He doesnít like being in a kennel at all but as soon as he is out on the lead he is fine, and walks nicely. He has had some training and knows how to sit and come. He has been with the RSPCA for too long now and is desperate to move out of kennels. He needs a quiet-ish home, perhaps with older children.

Please contact Pauline on 07599 969 647 if you would like to meet David. 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

Our cats are neutered, microchipped, de-fleed, wormed and vaccinated prior to rehoming - the adoption fees of £60 for an adult cat and £80 for a kitten 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).

JJ - kitten

November 2015

 

Six-month-old JJ is looking for his chance in life after a very rocky start. He is a dear little thing who is so friendly and lovable.

JJ came to us as a stray. He has also tested positive for a virus called FIV which was probably transferred to him from his mum.

FIV presents no danger to humans at all. The main impact of FIV on a cat is that it can weaken the immune system so a cat can be more prone to infections, such as gum infections. However, many cats with FIV lead long and happy lives - we know of an ex-RSPCA FIV-positive cat (Jo Black) who is now 11 years old and is a lively, happy boy having had very few problems. Due to his higher risk of picking up infections and as FIV can be transferred to other cats (through biting and mating although, as JJ is neutered, only the former would apply), JJ needs to be kept as an indoor cat either as a single cat or with another FIV-positive cat. (See this information sheet for more info on the FIV virus).

We are looking for an indoor home for JJ, either as an only cat or with another FIV-positive cat. He would be a great companion cat for anyone who spends time at home and needs some company. We believe he would be fine in a family environment Ė he just needs a little extra support and care.

Please call Pam on 01270 811013 if you could offer JJ a loving, caring home. 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.

Bibi

January 2016

Bibi is a 7-year-old black beauty. She is a sweet-natured and gentle (but not timid) little cat who is very friendly and loves to be fussed. She would be a good companion cat. In her previous home, Bibi became upset when a new cat arrived so she would be best as the only cat in her new home.

Please call Pam on 01270 811013 if you could offer Bibi her new home. 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.

Dinky and kittens

January 2016

Dinky is all black and about 1 year old.

Her three black-and-white kittens (Loco, Spot and Smudge) are 4-5 months old.

They are all friendly and playful and would suit all types of families. The family get along well but we would be happy to home them separately.

Please call Pam on 01270 811013 if you could offer a home to Dinky or one of her kittens. 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.

Tom & Yoda

January 2016

Tom (black) and Yoda (white with tabby markings) are 1-year-old brothers. They are friendly, lively boys who adore company and love to play. They get on very well so we would like to home them together if possible. They would suit any family.

Please call Pam on 01270 811013 if you could offer these two likely lads a loving new home. 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.

Polly

February 2015

Polly is a characterful, older Tabby girl (15 years old) who came to us when her owner passed away.

Polly is very good for her age, with no identified ailments. She knows her own mind, likes a fuss (when she wants one), pretends not to hear you (but can hear fine when you say the word "dreamies") and she can certainly move quickly to get a cat treat!

She would be well suited to a person or couple who are looking for some company. Polly would be happier if she were the only cat around - she has had her own way long enough and is not up for sharing!

Please call Pam on 01270 811013 if you could be the person that Polly could spend her twilight years with. 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.
