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.

 

Prince

With us since February 2017

Prince  

 

Update: For a change of scene, Prince recently spent a long weekend in a home with children. He settled in really quickly, and enjoyed the company - and the family barbecue - while he was there! He met lots of new people and proved that he would make a great family pet with just a little training.

Prince is a big lurcher-cross who loves nothing better than to run and play with a tennis ball! He is four to five years old.

Prince would benefit from some training but he is a nice boy and will reward owners who are prepared to work further with him.

He is typical of his breed, so we will not rehome him where there are cats, rabbits or other dogs. We think he would do well in a family with older children.

Please contact Pauline on 07599 969 647 if you think Prince could fit into 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.

 

 

Jess

With us since July 2017

Jess

 

Rehome a Staffie - often overlooked but are wonderful companions - click here to find out more

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.

 

 

Flynn

With us since December 2017

Flynn

 

Rehome a Staffie - often overlooked but are wonderful companions - click here to find out more

Flynn is a 6-year-old Staffie-cross with highwayman masks around his eyes - very dashing! He is back with us after being rehomed in April, due to a change in his owner's circumstances. He is a great boy - a bit too great at the moment, he needs a diet!

He is friendly and quite calm, and would make a good pet for a family with older children who can continue his training. He would do best as the only pet in the house.

Please contact Pauline on 07599 969 647 if you could offer a home to Flynn. 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.

 

Arabella

January 2018

 

Arabella came to us as a stray. A kind person had been feeding her for some time, and we have been told that she had a litter of kittens last year. Even so, we believe that Arabella is still very young - only around 1 year old.

Arabella is a black beauty, in excellent health. She likes attention and to be fussed, but she doesn't like other cats, or dogs, so would need to be the only pet in the household. We are not sure of her history with children, but we are confident that she would do well as a family pet, especially if any children are of secondary school age.

Please contact Pam on 01270 811013 if you could offer Arabella the loving home she has yet to experience. 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.

 

Hemingway

January 2018

 

Long-haired Hemingway came to us as a stray. We believe he is around 5 years old. You can see from his cauliflower ear that he is a graduate from the University of Life! But don't let that put you off him, it is healed and does not bother him - it only adds to his cheeky character.

Hemingway is a lovely friendly boy, very easy going and loves his bed and his dinners. He doesn't seem to mind other cats, and he may also be able to live with a dog-friendly cat. He seems fine with children and would make a great pet for any type of family.

Please contact Pam on 01270 811013 if you could offer Hemingway space on your lap and in your 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.

 

Chloe and Coco

February 2018

 

Seven-year-old Chloe (tabby) and one-year-old Coco (black) are looking for a very special home that will give them the love and care they need to help them become happy and confident cats.

Chloe is Coco’s mum and the girls came to us from an owner who had many cats.

When they came to us, they were both timid – basically, very scared. To help them, they have been staying with fosterers whose attention, love and kindness have caused their confidence to increase in leaps and bounds. Both are now happy to explore and, as you can see in the video, Chloe has decided that cuddles really are a good thing. Coco still has some way to go but she is slowly becoming more trusting and she does like her head stroked.

With the right care, they will keep improving. They need a second chance at life and love, with lots of patience to complete their transformation. The girls sleep together and are very reliant on each other so they must be homed together. They wouldn’t suit a home with young children or with other pets. A quiet home would be best with adults only or with older teenagers who are understanding of their needs especially in the early days.

Please contact Pam on 01270 811013 if you could give these two lovelies the calm, caring home they need. 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.
