Unable to keep your pet?
As an RSPCA branch, we prioritise the animals collected by the national RSPCA inspectors. If you find yourself in a position where you are no longer able to keep your pet, you can find advice on the national RSPCA website.
We have limited cat space and are unable to take other species of animal. In the unhappy circumstances of having to give your cat up, we will try to help you when possible. Please email email@example.com or ring Anita on 07725 406293. We will request a donation from you if we can take your cat into our cattery for rehoming. This donation is to help with boarding and veterinary costs.
If you need to give up an animal that isn't a cat, or if we don't have room, we recommend you try a member of the Association of Dog and Cat Homes to ensure you are using a reputable rehoming organisation.
