We will always take our animals back if you do not get on with them


It may take weeks, months or Years for an animal to settle down.

Same Daily Routine is the most helpful in settling down your new adoptee quickly.

Daily exercise is most important preferably at the same time and before feeding.

We will always be registered on the animals Microchip details

We have more animals for Adopting companion ponies, dogs, cats, rabbits

Older animals, staffies, rotties, greyhounds and black and white cats are really hard to home. Please give them a chance colour or type does not make them any less loving. Only the way the owner treats them.

Please remember we can only give you what information we have learned or know about the animals. Some maybe strays or the owners have passed away.

is a 4 year old cat who likes to be outdoor. He can be very vocal to get outside he is also a escape artist. He is not good with other cats but loves a fuss.


Is a sweet cat like her home comforts she is a little shy at first. Would like to be in a quiet home with no children, cats or dogs.


Found as a stray but noone claimed him. He was taken to be scanned but no microchip. Vet thinks he is around two years.


was dumped on the yard. He is not a young cat he is around 17 years. We think that his eyes are failing and he has a heart murmer. He is just lookng for a quet peacful indoor home on his own. He is a bit wary at first.


She is around 2 years old. Very shy at first but once she gets to know you she is fine. She would do better in a quiet house.
