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.

Very sweet female looking for a new caring loving home.


Came in with kittens and will need a quiet home with no children or other pets. She will come around slowly as she is shy and nervous.


We think that he was someones cat a little shy at first but when he gets to know you is quite friendly. Could do with a quiet household.


She was caught on the railway she is quiet and not nasty just very shy. She will need some work needs TLC in a quiet home after a time she will come round.


He was caught on the railway he will need a lot of work as quite feral needs TLC in a quiet home after a time he will come round. Or he will be a good farm cat. You will need to keep him in somewhere like a stable for a month feeding twice a day. Feeding twice a day after letting him out of the stable is just as important he will still catch mice as it will be a game to him.


Was left on the yard one night with a letter saying that his owner was being made homeless. He is 10 years old and quite quiet we dont know much about him.


Was found in a shed with kittens we were given Robyn a bit shy but nice when she gets to know you.


Indoor Outdoor cat very sweet he is 5 years old never been around kids or dogs as lived in a very quiet home. Can be a it growly if he does not know you but its all show Quite a softy really.


Found in the middle of a lay by and would not move. She was brought to the sanctuary to be found heavily pregnant. She has had the kittens and is ready to go.

Snowflakes kittens are now also ready to go, here is Spot and Shorty
