Lola is an 18 month old Saluki cross.  Lola is a fantastic dog with bags of personality and energy to match.  This young girl loves playing in the pen with tennis balls and squeakers! Lola should have been a Kangaroo and not a dog as she loves to bounce and jump around.  We are hoping to home Lola with a family that have another dog as she loves going on walks with the other dogs at the centre and sometimes refuses to walk unless she has another four legged friend to walk with. Lola can live with children 1o years . OUT ON TRIAL.

Rhubarb and Custard are a very friendly pair of cats who came to S.A.R.A. when their owner sadly passed away. Rhubarb is 6yr old female and Custard is a 5yr old male. Custard is very confident and will spend his time on the cat tree, waiting for our volunteers to come and give him a fuss. Rhubarb is a little more reserved and enjoys snuggling up in her bed, near the radiator. Rhubarb and Custard would like a home where they will get all of the attention they deserve.

Susie is a lovely 9yr old DSH who came to S.A.R.A. through no fault of her own. Susie is a friendly lady who enjoys spending time with our volunteer cat cuddlers. Susie is an indoor cat. She is finding life in the cattery difficult and would love a nice, calm home to call her own. OUT ON TRIAL.

Jimmy is a gorgeous 8 month old Saluki cross who came to S.A.R.A. following a change in his owners circumstances. Jimmy is a very active young man. He loves to race around in the pen and enjoys his walks with our other dogs.  Jimmy knows basic commands and will play fetch with our staff and volunteers. We feel Jimmy would be best homed with another dog as he loves to play. Jimmy could possibly live with older children and would need a home with no small animals.

Tina and Ruby are a beautiful pair of 5yr old Shih Tzu cross sisters who came to S.A.R.A. when their owner sadly passed away. Tina and Ruby love to go for walks together and will happily walk with our other dogs and they have lived with other dogs previously. These sisters love to play in the garden and will chase around after each other. Ruby is more outgoing whereas Tina is a little more reserved. We feel that Tina and Ruby could possibly live with children 8 and could live with another dog(s). These two lovely little girls would make someone or a family wonderful companions. Tina and Ruby will be highly sought after, therefore we will be looking for the most suitable home. OUT ON TRIAL.

Sooty and Ozzy came to S.A.R.A. following a change in their owners circumstances. They are 4yrs and 5yrs old and are the best of friends. These gorgeous boys love snuggling up together in their beds and exploring the cattery. Ozzy and Sooty would need to go to a home with no young children as they were stressed in the past around children in their previous home. Like many other black cats in our care, they are being overlooked. They are fantastic cats and Ozzy and Sooty would make wonderful companions for a first time cat owner. Reserved.

Percy came in to S.A.R.A. as a stray in October. Percy is a very loving cat and will come straight out of his bed if he hears someone coming in to the cattery! All of our cats are blood tested and for Percy, it revealed that he is FIV positive. For this reason, Percy would need to be homed as an indoor cat.

Jax and Tigger came to S.A.R.A. following a change in their owners circumstances. These beautiful boys are super affectionate and love getting plenty of cuddles with our volunteers. Jax and Tigger are 2yrs old and would like a home where they can get all the attention they deserve. These brothers would make wonderful family pets and would be lovely companions for a first time pet owner. As with many black and black and white cats, Jax and Tigger are being overlooked. Reserved.

We have recently been granted planning permission to build four new, high quality kennels at our animal sanctuary. The ground work has now started and this is what they will look like when they are finished.

 

 

 

 

 

In addition to this, our existing eight kennels will have to be closed in the near future for major refurbishment.  Our biggest problem is that our kennels often flood due to poor drainage. We are planning to resolve this with a total refurbishment of these kennels to a high standard and it is hoped this work will start in the spring.

The expected cost of all the planned worked will be in excess of £120,000!!!!!

We are a small animal charity and our overheads are kept to an absolute minimum.  Despite this, we are constantly striving to improve our facilities so we can rescue more neglected and mistreated animals, and continue to build on our excellent reputation. We now have this opportunity to extend and improve our current facilities.

 

How can you help?

We have opened a Charity Choice account on our web site and all donations will be recorded. To donate click on here to go to the page.   The four new kennels are costing £15,000 each.   If a single donation is made for this amount either by an individual or a business, the kennel can be sponsored by that person or that of a loving pet. However, donations large and small will be massively appreciated.Regular updates and photos will be on our website and our Facebook page.

If you would like further information about this exciting project, please contact the farm and talk to a member of staff, or if possible visit our sanctuary and we shall be happy to show you round.

Thank you,
