BOOK NOW TO AVOID DISAPPOINTMENT
As well as dogs and cats we also offer a safe haven for many other animals. We always have rabbits looking for homes, often guinea pigs and others such as ponies, ferrets, rodents and parakeets. As well as domestic animals we also take in injured and orphaned birds and small wildlife. Wherever possible we care for them until they can be released but if they need more specialised care we pass them on to a dedicated wildlife rescue.
Please remember that your weekends bonfire can look like a nice cosy home to a hedgehog and make sure that you check them before lighting your fire. For more hedgehog advice check out our hedgehog page in our News section.
It is a sad but true fact that black coated cats, and dogs, are always harder to re-home. You can ask any rescue shelter around the world and they will confirm this to be true throughout the year. With Halloween on the horizon it is a good time for us to remind everyone that black cats, and dogs, make just as good pets as any other colour.
So where did these superstitions come from? Black cats have played a major role for centuries in folklore, superstition, and mythology. Black cats in the middle ages were believed to be witches’ familiars, and some people even believed them to be witches incarnate. In some parts of the world many of these old superstitions about black cats sadly still exist to this day.
In Asia and the UK however black cats are generally considered lucky. Did you know for example -
So if you are thinking of giving a loving home to a rescue cat please do not rule out a black cat this Halloween.
Here are some of the black cats we currently have in our care looking for homes.
