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.

Was found in a box in Salford with her kittens. She is a one year old petite cat. We dont know much about her.


is quite a loving cat given up as owners did not have time for him. Good with other cats and children who dont pull tails but not dogs.


She is 18 months old. Likes things on her own terms DOES NOT LIKE MEN would do better with no kids, no men and no dogs. Would like a female household. She is an indoor cat.


Came back to the sanctuary through no fault of her own. She is a nice indoor cat but likes a quiet life so no Children or dogs.



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.
