Darcie Dolittle Looking for Loving Home

Rehomed – thanks for all the interest, Darcie is now enjoying life in her new home.

Darcie’s a real sweetie pie and everything you would want in a Jack Russell.  She’s very good looking with a lovely warm temperament. She loves fuss and country walks.  Darcie is white and tan in colour with a smooth coat.

She’s a medium sized jack russell, not too big and with bright eyes that say – Take me home, pleeze!   She’s spayed, vaccinated  and microchipped. 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?

A super home wanted for her, you are most welcome to come and meet her.   We’re open every day between 11.0am and 3.0pm.  Please email or call us on 07432 071122.

Dog Adoption derbyshire

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 needs a new home


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.

We cannot verify these details and you are advised to make your own enquiries.  We’ll pass your details on if you are interested – please contact us in first instance:  email:

Reggie & Penny need a new home



Two laid back lovely cats who have been together since kittens.  They are approx. 4 years old and spayed, neutered and vaccinated.   Reggie and Penny are well behaved, clean and good natured.   They like to go out during the day and do a bit of tree climbing and ‘hunting’ in the long grass and then it’s back in at teatime for a favourite pouch and a snooze and dreaming of the day’s adventures.

If you’d like to come and meet them please get in touch – we’re open between 11 and 3 every day.  Please help us by making a small donation – many thanks.cats-donate-today-1




We’ve found them a lovely home (thanks Anne) – Adult but  still youngsters, a beautiful brother and sister, very friendly and well socialised.  Neutered and spayed and fully vaccinated and vet health checked.  Must go together.








A lovely lady cat around 4 years old and came in with Sonik.  They get on well together but Sparkle gets on with all the cats.  She is easy going and lovable, clean and well behaved.  Her markings are fabulous – an eye catching cat!

Wispa has found a lovely home, thank you – A young lady cat (approx. 1 year old) and still looks like a kitten.  Wisps is dainty and small, very affectionate and good nature, she has lovely green eyes.   Wispa has been spayed and is fully vaccinated, she has had a vet health check.   She gets on with other cats and loves people.  A real sweetie.




She’s a dainty white and tabby girl with lovely big golden eyes.  She had a very bad start in life but has settled well here.  She has been spayed, vaccinated and vet health checked and she is fine.  Lillie is eating well and is clean and well behaved.  She is very loving when she gets to know you but can be a bit shy at first.  We think she’s about 2 years old.  Lillie likes to be warm and feel safe, she had to be a survivor before she was brought in to us (thanks Lynda)




Flickr took a long time to settle down, she was scared and scatty when she first came in.  She’s only a youngster, three years old now and has, at last, calmed down.  She likes to get to know you first and is adventurous and outgoing, so a home where she can go out would be good – so long as it is safe and away from busy roads.   Flick would have to be kept ;in for a while till she knew her home, a farm or barn outbuilding would be something she’d love.







Pair of delightful Degus for adoption

daygus - silver & pearl 3 - 1

They are sisters and very pretty, these Degus have been well handled and come complete with their own extra large cage.   Degus need metal housing because they are adept at chewing and would go through a wooden hutch eventually.

They are smudgy grey colours, we’ve called them Silver and Pearl.  Degus originate in Chile, South America and like warm weather, they need a tub of sand or soil so they can burrow.  In their natural habitat their den would be underground.   They’re about guinea pig size and live to be eight or nine years old.

Feeding them is easy, vegetables, dandelions, grasses, nuts, seeds and the main part of they diet should be hay.  Keep away from anything sweet because surprisingly, degus are prone to diabetes.  No fruit and honey sticks!  Degus are used in research (poor things) into human diabetes.

Degus are sociable creatures and live in groups although they don’t usually tolerate a stranger being introduced.  They like lots of beaches and twigs in their den, so they have something to nibble on.  They are easy to tame, inquisitive and come readily for food.

Silver and Pearl come with  a complete set up and all their toys and belongings.   The large cage would be very expensive to buy and a donation is much appreciated.

We’re open every day from 11.0am to 3.0pm and you are welcome to come and meet the degus..   If you can let us know when you’re calling round that is helpful – it’s always busy here.  Please press the bell on Reception (blue portacabin on right)  on arrival.
