Timmy & Jimmy – are off to their new home

Timmy and Jimmy were born in February 2021 and are barely 12 weeks old and are boys. They are typically shy but with gentle and pleasant handling they will soon be chattering away. We are looking to rehome them as a pair. They need a warm draft free hutch and access to a secure outside…

Minnie & Lucy

Minnie and Lucy are looking for a new home together. Minnie was born December 2014 and Lucy was born April 2013. They are a very sweet pair and enjoy each other’s company, although typically there might be the odd dispute, initially, about who gets the best lap. They are a happy pair. Lucy needs to…

Scooby

Scooby is one of two large Great Dane type crosses we have in currently. Scooby was born in November 2016 Scooby has a great enthusiasm for life and would benefit from having some purpose in his life other than just causing mayhem. He is a boisterous boy who doesn’t believe in going round things when…

Harry

Harry was born around 2017 and was brought in from abroad by another rescue earlier this year. We believe that rehoming failed and he was then acquired via the internet. When that person took Harry they took him because he was in such poor condition and arranged to bring him in to us as he…

Petra & Bobbi

Petra and Bobbie, both girls, are around 18 months old and need an aviary home. They have been used to free flying so an aviary will be a good home for them. If you think you can offer them the home they need, please complete and return an application form.

Manny

We think Manny has had a bit of a rough start to life. Those looking after him arranged to bring him in so he is able to look for a safe and loving home. We think Manny is around 4 years old. He appears to have a good nature but prefers not to be over…

Bonnie & Clyde – Not more applications. Thank you

Bonnie and Clyde have always lived together and although they came in in a small cage they are used to the door being open all but at bed time. They are very easily transferable from cage to room and room to cage so we would be looking for a home with a similar set up.…

Fennel

We don’t know a huge amount about Fennel’s history except he had been sleeping rough for some considerable years. Although we believe Fennel might have a slight “street cat” side so far he has shown himself to be loving and affectionate if slightly fearful of hands. He has a lovely gentle side and will offer…

Mia – no more enquiry please

Mia is 10 year old and sadly after the death of her owner she struggled to settle in a house with a young child and ended up biting the child. Fortunately a good vet stepped in and arranged for her to come into rescue. Since the second she came in Mia has been a model…

Binky is on hold to allow her time to recover her from her op.

Binky is a lovely girl around 4 years old with such pretty colouring. She loves company and would be a good match for a neutered boy. She is due to be neutered shortly and will be ready to go to her new home after that. She is medium sized and would be better suited to…

Storm – Will be off to his new home shortly

Storm#3 is around a year old. He’s a temperamental boy but he’s been through a bit of upset recently so will need a patient and relaxed owner . He has come in with Thunder but sadly the two of them started fighting some time ago so they have come in for homing separately. Storm is…

Lizzie

Lizzie is around 6 years old. She initial came in as her owners felt unable to care for her properly any more after she became unwell and also had bitten them. We have to say Lizzie is a poppet. She loves the fuss and attention. We believe her illness may have been down to two…

Lola

Lola is around 10 years old and came in with Izzy. She is a confident friendly girl. We have popped these girls in separate runs but they could rehomed happily together in a home environment. Lola does have a coat that will need regular grooming. She is fairly enjoying being groomed. As we are looking…

Izzy

Izzy is around 10 years old and has very pretty colouring. She has been living with Lola but we haven’t found them particularly keen on each other’s company and have now popped them in separate pens which they appeared to have benefited from. It may be they would be happier together in a home environment.…

Biscuit

Biscuit is a medium sized cross who is under two. Please note he is not a border terrier type and has staffie in him. When he came in it is fair to say he was a grumpy boy when he came in he did have a reasonable excuse as his skin was very sore. Once…

When is a stray cat not a stray cat?

Cats are naturally wanderers as far as 10 miles, especially if unneutered.  Cats, when they visit other houses, are always ‘starving’ and are never fussy eaters (I once knew a cat that would only eat turkey at home but went and raided the neighbours cat food bowl every day). So what can you do if…

Day 648 and Christmas came early

I think I speak for all the staff and volunteers at the kennels that if we had one wish for Christmas, much as we love him, it would be for Archie to not spend it with us at kennels but with a new family.  Well yesterday 648 days after coming into kennels our Archie finally…

Sometimes all that is needed is a little bit of tlc

Stanley has clearly been living rough for sometime, although he is a little bit fuffy as you can see in the video below if a dreamie is involved he’s happy to have a bit of a stroke.  It looks like our Stanley will be looking for a cosy indoor home once he is fully recovered…

And still they keep coming in

There appears to be a never ending stream of kittens being found.  This morning two more came in from the Duns area.  Very pretty with sharp claws and teeth.  We’re sure they’ll come round as soon as they realise we’re a source of food.  These two are probably around the 12 weeks mark so still…

Another busy Saturday

We’ve another busy Saturday ahead with 14 animals off to their new homes.  Fortunately a lot of them are cats as we have a huge waiting list of cats to come in. We often get asked if we are sad when the animals leave us.  That’s a difficult question, it is after all what we’re…

The wonder of mother nature

Yesterday we took in three kittens about 3 or 4 weeks old that were found by the road side.  Apparently healthy, and certainly with healthy appetites. Lucille had just finished feeding her 5 so we though we’d see if she would help us out.  She wasn’t a natural mother when her kittens were born, she…

Plant Sale preparations

Our plant sale is always very popular and Karen has been planting seeds since before the last one.  Her long suffering husband has decided the only way forward is a poly tunnel as they have no more window sills, or space for that matter in their house and garden.  So today a massive 25 x…

Vet visit day – It’s going to be a long one!

So today one of the vets from Galedin will be down pulling their hair out.  We have 15 cat vaccinations, 8 dog vaccinations and an additional 6 check ups.  Of course to help matters nearly all the cats are black or black and white just to complicate matters.  They are all microchipped and it will…

“I could never put my animal into rescue……..”

Rescue animals come in for all sorts of reasons, the minority is your stereotypical dumped, abandoned, unwanted.  For many bringing animals in to us it is a heart wrenching decision which causes upset past the initial bringing in.    Many owners have brought animals in because for one reason or another finance, or lack of…

Open Day

We had our open day on Saturday (28th October). To say it was busy was an understatement. Lots of people in looking at our animals. Of course the kittens and puppies attracted the most visitors. Poor Archie once again getting overlooked for the younger or prettier dogs. (I know beauty is in the eye of…

Vet visit day

We are lucky to have our vets, Galedin, so close.  It’s vet visit today.  Nothing particularly exciting.  14 vaccinations and check ups plus we’re a bit concerned about one of our rabbits so a check over by the vet will hopefully sort that out.  Fortunately today is not the day for all the kittens to…
