Floss has now found a great new home with her sister Flo
Nella is a black and white female domestic short hair kitten. Nella came in to the rescue with her brother and sister after being found abandoned in a house, after the tenants where evicted.
Sadly we do not know how long these babies where left for, this has not affected her at all! Nella is a really sweet kitten who has really calmed down since she came to us, she used to be a real live wire and now she is a proper lap kitten.
We initially thought that Nella would be good to be re-homed with young children, however after having several families visit her with small children who have poked and prodded her she is now very wary of them, so she would definitely be better suited to children over the age of 10 years old. Nella is good with other cats and she is good with dogs that are used to cats.
Nella will be fully vaccinated, micro chipped, neutered, up to date with all flea treatment and wormer and will come with 5 weeks free insurance. If you feel you could offer Nella a new home either call 02380 893188 or e-mail [email protected]
Betty, Hetty, Hatty and Doris where rescued by All Animal Rescue on their way to an intensive battery farming unit. These ladies were victims of an up and coming tend in schools to do the “Living egg project” Click here for more information on what the “living egg project is”
These girls had been hatched and brought up and loved by young children, only to be discarded to a life of hell when they were no longer of use! I’m all up for showing our children where our food comes from, but teaching them that animals can just be discarded when they are no longer wanted is not what we should be educating!
These lovely ladies will now stay in the rescue as permanent residents, they are so friendly and cheeky that they are perfect for taking to talks and educating people on how to care for animals and to show them what the rescue does.
Updated 10.08.17 – We have been doing a lot of work with Kiki since she came in, most of it was lack of trust in humans. Well what a difference a couple of weeks make! Kiki is now excepting of other cats, she is much better being the lower ranking cat and is very submissive to our dominant female! The best success we have had, is she is now showing affection to men, she was so scared of men when she first arrived! She spent the evening curled up on Ross’s lap last night purring away!
Finally she is now tolerating dogs, she has learnt that she is the boss of the dogs and that she has total control.I still think Kiki would suit an adult only home, with a couple who are willing to win her trust, but my oh my when you win it she is the most amazing cat you will ever own!
Kiki is a 18 month old neutered black female cat. Kiki came in to the rescue after being found as a pregnant stray. Her finder managed to find a home for all of the kittens but was unable to find a home for Kiki.
Kiki is fine with dogs that are good with cats and are calm, she is not great with other cats so would be better as an only cat. Kiki has obviously had a difficult start in life and can be a little nervous with new people, however she is fine once she gets used to you. However because of this we would not recommend her to go with children under the age of 16.
Kiki is fully vaccinated, micro chipped, neutered, up to date with all flea treatment and wormer and comes with 5 weeks free insurance. If you feel you could offer Kiki a home, either call 02380 893188 or e-mail [email protected]
Sadly this weekend we have lost our oldest resident Guinea pig.
Lard came in to us as a failed breeding guinea pig, she ended up a permanent resident as nobody wanted to re-home her due to her red eyes. Lard soon became a favorite of everyone here due to her tough spirit! She took no nonsense from anyone and her ability to drag off vegetables 3 times her body weight while fighting off everyone else was nothing short of impressive.
Sadly old age hit our lady and a couple of months ago she developed Glaucoma, we knew that diabetes was the likely cause so she was closely monitored and sadly over the last couple of months she started to decline, this weekend she took at turn for the worst this weekend and we took the decision to have her put to sleep, as although her body had given up, her little heart was still going.
Thank you to everyone for your help and support in this time. We are in the process of organising the planting of trees for the scattering of ashes of the rescue animals.
We are in need of foster homes for the following animals:
Rodents for example Hamsters, rats, degus etc
All equipment, food, vet care and support is provided by the rescue. What we are looking for are people to provide a roof over their head, training, guidance and understanding to get them ready for a new home.
Fostering is Ideal for people who like holidays and can’t commit to a animal full time. We have a few foster’s that are retired and go on regular holidays, they just let us know when they are away and when they are able to foster and we make sure they have a pet.
Some of the animals we get in to the rescue just need a little tlc and a roof over their head until we can find them a good home.
Some however have come in because they have never been given any training, brought for all the wrong reasons and then passed from home to home. These animals can be challenging and I won’t lie can push all of your buttons, wee in your house, chew things they shouldn’t etc!!
They just need boundaries, routine, consistency and with hard work and determination can be brought round. There is nothing more rewarding than taking a animal from death row who is completely messed up, unscrambling the mess and then seeing them in there new home happy and content!
Have a spare room, foster a cat! a spare room will be way bigger than a cattery and they will get used to all the sounds and smells of living in a house, as long as you have time in your day to spend with them they would be more than happy.
Fostering is not easy!!! It can be heart breaking you win some and you lose some, some will get right under your skin and it will be heart breaking to see them go to their new homes. Some will be so messed up that they will push you to your limits! But the good times way out weight the bad times. I love going to see one of the animals I have fostered in their new home, happy, settled and content. It is a feeling money can’t buy!
