Harold and Edward

Harold and Edward came into our care after they were removed from a property via one of our inspectors. They are very handsome chaps, but can be a little on the shy side around people so would love to find a home where they continue to grow in confidence. They have not had much handling in their previous home, but are slowly starting to become social since being in our care. They absolutely love their veggies which they will now happily take from our hands. Could you give these boys their forever home?

World Spay Day – 23rd February

World Spay Day is here and it’s more important than ever that the benefits of Spaying and Neutering are made clear.

If you haven’t yet had your cat or dog neutered whether it be due to finances, time, or because you’ve been told you don’t need to, we would like to help!

We are strong believers in animals being neutered as soon as possible to avoid health problems later in life, unwanted litters when there are so many animals without homes already, or frustrating behavioural issues.

That’s why we are jumping on board this World Spay Day and running two separate promotions!

Please see the poster for all the details.

We will notify the winners before the end of February and all the winning entries will be on our website and Facebook about the same time.

Lonely Calendars and Diaries Need a Home!

We know if you are reading this you are an animal lover!   So, please read on……

Due to our charity shops having to be closed we have a number of Calendars and Diaries which need a good home as they are currently gathering dust in our charity shops and unlike the Christmas cards, we can’t sell them at the end of the year!

We are now selling our Calendars and Diaries at 50% – £0.75 for the diaries and £1.70 for our calendars.   (Plus, postage to get them to you of course).

Your Calendar or Diary purchase could cover the cost of a yummy meal or two for one of the animals in our care.

If you would like more details or to purchase a calendar or diary please contact Kate on or 01449 614057.
