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.

Unfortunately had to be given up. She is the mum to some of these. she is 2 and a half years and is a mini. She will be rehomed with daughter Fluffy. They get along very well.


she was the stray ferret found a few weeks ago, no one ever came forward for her so we have taken ownership. Shes going to the vets next week to be neutered. We are not sure of her age.
shes not been handled much so is a little nippy but is getting more used to being handled now with the staff holding her.

We have two mice in Pascale and Sonic

Both female and a little skittish


We have a large number of large terrapins from 6 inches across to dinner plate size. These will need a water temperature of mid 70 f and a large filtered tank. They cannot live with fish as they will eat them or take chunks out of them no matter what size your fish are. They need well filtered water and regular water changes. They eat terrapin food, shrimps, water cress, meats and spinach. You must wash your hands after handling or cleaning any reptiles due to they carry salmonella. They will also grow bigger than dinner plates and have a long lifespan. They cannot live in an outside pond.
