We believe animals deserve compassion, respect and consideration. That prevention of unwanted animals through the promotion of neutering and education, and the humane control of feral colonies is required, and no healthy animal should be destroyed if a responsible home cannot be found.

Visiting is strictly by appointment to protect the health and welfare of the animals in our care, please do not visit unless by prior appointment.

What a Difference a Day Makes!

Janice had been at the Centre for over five months and unfortunately she was one of those cats that just found if very difficult to adjust to living in this environment.  Despite all the efforts of our staff and handlers Janice remained withdrawn and could be quite feisty at times!   Thankfully we were aware from her previous owner that Janice’s personality was nothing like this and she was a very loving cat, however her attitude made it extremely difficult to convince people of this which was understandable.

Finally someone was prepared to look past this ‘grouchy’ exterior trust in what we told them and give her the chance she needed, click the link below to Facebook to see Janice on DAY 1!!


Thank you to everyone who persisted with Janice who took every growl, hiss and swipe and did make a difference and a massive thank you to her new owners for giving her the loving home that she deserves.
