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.

Nibbles and Kibbles

At the Littleborough sanctuary. Two nice female handleable rats only 18 months old. Unfortunately need newhome through no fault of their own.



Came in as a stray but never claimed. He is around 2-3 years a nice ferret but when excited can get a bit nippy.

We have many rats some nice some nippy. All neutured.




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.
