Toby the Lurcher Looking for A New Home

The owner of this super dog, Toby, got in touch to see if we could find a new home for him. They have had him since a pup but unfortunately due to a change in circumstances, are having to find him a new home. A super home wanted for this dog, so if you think you could help, please get in touch.

Toby is a lurcher/Collie cross and he is 6 1/2 years old. He has a very loving and relaxed temperament and loves being around people. He is very good with young children and other dogs, but not so good with cats. He enjoys long walks and is excellent both on and off the lead. He is up to date with all his vaccinations. Change to circumstances at home after having a baby make this a reluctant request for rehoming. It is very sad for them as they have had him since he was a puppy and he is such a lovely dog.


Mischa and Elsie are gorgeous cats and ready for adoption

Rehomed! Thanks for all the interest, Mischa and Elsie have gone to a lovely new home.

We have two of the most beautiful cats at the animal sanctuary we have ever seen and we would love to find them new home. Mischa and Elsie are real people cats and love to be picked up and cuddled. They are so fussy with us, giving kisses and meows to everyone that comes to visit. You couldn’t wish for better cats to love. A recent visit to the vets for a health check revealed they are about one and half years old. They could be sisters as they are both so alike and love each other. If you think you could give either of them a home or indeed both of them, please get in touch via email or give us a call. We have lots of other cats of all ages looking for love. You are welcome to pop up, give them a cuddle and see them most days but if you are travelling from far, please give us a call first so we can make sure someone is available to show you round.

Everybody loves to walk her, she’s a pleasure to care for.   She loves everybody and everything, walks nicely on the lead, and has a lot to give to the right family. Can you give her a new home?

Hector the dwarf rabbit for adoption


He’s around 4 years old and is vaccinated, Hector is looking for the a super loving home where he’ll have lots of fuss and attention.  He’s a sociable rabbit and likes to be petted and fussed.

Athough he’s not very big he still needs a good sized hutch with separate rooms for feeding, bed and toilet area.  A run attached is also essential.  Hector likes to come indoors for a play and he would need to be kept in a warm and sheltered environment at all times.

If you’d like to come and meet him please get in touch.



Polly the pig for adoption


Polly is a lovely pig who has settled well with us here but if a new pig-friendly home came along she’d be very happy.

Polly is quiet and gentle, she’s well trained and puts herself to bed.  Also, like most pigs, she is very clean and never soils her bedroom.   She likes to be on her own and is a bit afraid of other pigs, she responds well to human companionship and comes to call and talks to you!

To keep a pig you need a holding number, also a secure, well fenced paddock and pigs need plenty of room and access to vegetation.  Polly needs a solid shed filled with straw to keep her warm.

Please keep in touch if you’d like to come and meet Polly.



Topcat kitten for adoption


He’s found a lovely home, thanks.  Topcat is a handsome personality plus kitten approx. five months old.  He’s a lovely boy, very friendly and affectionate.  He’s beautifully marked with a slightly fluffy coat, nice and cuddly!

Topcat is fully vaccinated, too young to be neutered at present.   We’re looking for a super home for him, if you’d like to come and meet him please get in touch.

Millie is going to a lovely home, thanks everyone.   She’s a lovable and well behaved Cairn Terrier.  Millie is very affectionate and lovable, she came in because of domestic circumstances and through no fault of her own.

She’s approx. 4 years old and vaccinated and chipped.  She’s not been spayed.   Millie walks well on the lead and travels nicely in the car.  She’s good with cats and hasn’t put a paw wrong since she’s been with us.

American Bulldog needs a home


Re-homed by owner – Benson isn’t with us in the sanctuary as we don’t have room at present.  Here’s what his owner says about him:

Benson is 2 years old & fully vaccinated & microchipped.
He is fully house trained & doesn’t chew.
he has been brought up with my 2 children 5 & 8 at the time & has an amazing temperament.
He has never growled or snapped in his life he hasn’t got a nasty bone in his body.
He is a large dog & still very excitable due to his age so does jump up but then settles down well.
It breaks my heart to let him go but im currently living at my parents due to the circumstances & cannot have Benson there. He’s currently in boarding kennells but it’s a real emergency that I find him somewhere to stay.
