Our Animals

Remember – all animals require a great deal of commitment. Please think carefully about your lifestyle and long term plans before you consider adding any kind of animal to your household. Will you have enough time to cater for its individual needs? Can you provide appropriate care for the animal when you are planning your holidays? Can you afford the cost of routine veterinary care and the occasional emergency? These are just a few of the things we advise you to consider before going ahead with any adoption and an example of the kinds of questions we will ask when you decide to choose a pet from our Centre. Click here to read some more information about rehoming and adoption.

Once you have chosen a suitable animal, we will then arrange for one of our experienced volunteers to visit you at home to check that you have the necessary facilities in place to care for the animal safely and appropriately and to give you the opportunity to ask any other questions you may have thought of since reserving your potential new pet.

There is an adoption fee for all our animals so please ask a member of staff to advise you of the cost of the animal you are interested in during your visit. Our adoption charges include the cost of neutering, vaccinating, and microchipping your animal in addition to routine treatments such as worming, and parasite prevention.

Poppy and Whiskas

Poppy and Whiskas arrived at the centre back in August and were very overweight. Poppy was severely matted and needed a dema as soon as possible. Due to her matts, Poppy was very grumpy, but once dematted, she has become a fuss pot. She will need grooming regularly to make sure she doesn’t get into that state again. Both cats are on a weight loss program and have exercise sessions weekly, to help combat their weight. Both Cat’s adore one another, so will need to be rehomed together. They can, despite their size, fit through a cat flap and would need outdoor access. Both are litter trained and their new owner would need to continue with helping them both to lose weight. They could live with children 5 years and over.
