PUPPIES !

Just take a look at our amazing puppies which we’ve nurtured from being recently rescued!  Their mother was found dead and they were all rescued as tiny babies and fostered by our amazing helpers.

They are all ready to be re-homed so if you can find a place in your heart and home for one or more, please go to our Adoption enquiry page and we will get back to you.  For more information, please email Tammy.

Kittens!

We have so many tiny kittens which are currently being hand-reared by our devoted staff.  All these kittens were dumped on us and would not have survived if we hadn’t agreed to raise them.  They are all being bottle-fed almost hourly but are all growing into such beauties.  Please make go to the Adoption page if you would like to make enquiries about adopting one or more.

 Newly Rescued – In Rehabilitation

Please note :  If no actual picture of the pet is shown, this means the pet has probably sustained injuries or is in rehabilitation. They are such brave pets and they don’t mind showing you their injuries as long as you understand they might not be looking their best!  With our love and care and your help we hope to get them on the road to recovery quickly.
