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.

is a 7 year old cat that is an indoor cat likes to be stroked but not keen on being picked up. She is on wet food and drugs (Metacam) for life due to being hit by a car so has arthritus. She sleeps a lot so would like a peaceful house.


Is an older cat needs a quiet household older couple without kids would suit him nice he is on a wet food as he does not have many teeth. He is a lovely boy and around 13 years old.


Feral kitten that was fighting for themselves at the railway station. will come around with a lot of patience.


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 or would be a good farm cat.

She will now let you touch her.


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. He will allow to be touched now on his terms. 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.
