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

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.

This is Patch who was found wandering and brought to a vets. He is around 10 months old now neutered. He is a sweet guy who will love a lot of love.



She is a sweet kitten that came in with damage to one of her eyes. This eye has had to be removed and is now healing nicely. She should be an indoor cat as she will not have all way round vision.

Narla and Sarabi

We dont know much about these two as unfortunately owner passed away. Need to stay together one has no teeth so needs wet food. They both need regular grooming they are indoor outdoor cats when they get used to their new home.

Lucy Ex AID

A Bit grumpy. Unfortunately she has had to been given up due to the adoptee that now cant keep her due to moving and the landlord not allowing pets.


owner passed away we dont know much about her apart from we know she is shy and does not like other cats. 


Picked up as a stray but not claimed. He is 6-7 years old He is not the friendlist of cats as he is weary and nervous. He will get friendly with time he just needs some work. He is possibly part feral. He needs a quiet house.
