HOW ADOPTION WORKS
Look at our cats and see who takes your fancy but be aware that your chosen cat may not always be available and there may be other cats not yet on the website - email us below stating your name, a bit about yourself, the name of the cat.
Please put on a phone number as someone will call you not email you.
Please don't use any other email.
We will contact you and chat normally we may arrange an appointment for you to visit the rescue.
Our rescue isn't open to visitors all the time.
Cover 19 means we may have different arrangements in place
We will help you decide if the animal is a good match for you
We will do a home visit - we always do this, please don't worry we are only looking at where the animal will be living not if you've washed the dishes.
We will ask you to complete an adoption form: this form is important as it is your agreement to the charity and the animal in your care.
Sadly vets have now increased their charges for microchipping and we now ask for a donation of £80 per cat and £85 per kitten, which includes neutering, worming, flea treatment and microchipping. We are always very grateful for a donation above the specified amount, as this fee does not cover our costs as you appreciate rescue animals often need several vets visits before they are healthy and ready to be homed. Sometimes the cat you see was in a very sorry state when they arrived.
It is very important to think carefully about adopting, every time an animal is rehomed it suffers stress in the same way that we do. The animal doesn't understand why it has lost familiar smells, favourite toys, voices it recognised, humans it loved, it doesn't understand that you've found that they are too expensive or nibble fingers or give someone an allergy. They don't understand rehoming - they only understand that they are frightened.
None of us can see into the future but wherever possible we are looking for FOREVER HOMES not short term homes for our animals.
