Welcome to the Cat & Rabbit Rescue Centre’s website.
HALLOWEEN REHOMING DAY
Saturday 25th October 2014
12.00 to 2.00pm
This Halloween why not consider a black or black and white cat or kitten! Black cats are often overlooked and many of them remain in our care for longer than others.
Other cats are available to look at as well.
Staff will be in fancy dress!
If you are thinking about getting a cat why not come and visit us on the above date we have over 200 cats and kittens of all ages, colours and personalities, all looking for that forever home.
Please remember that these rehoming days are for people who have not already had a home visit we will not be able to carry out any adoptions at this time. We looking forward to seeing you.
Re-homing is subject to a pre-home visit. These rehoming days are non-appointment days, so people considering a cat can pop along, otherwise we rehome 7 days a week by appointment only and only after a pre-home visit.
THE GREAT SOUTH BUNNY RUN
PLEASE HELP PUT THE ‘SPRING’ (HOP, SKIP & A JUMP) IN THESE GIRLS STEPS BY DONATING TO US
Date of Run: Sunday 26th October 10 miles (16 Kilometer) Great South Run.
Whose Running: 5 wonderful staff, Hannah, Laura, Naomi, Emily & Emma and they are raising money for Sharon’s Garden our new bunny enclosure.
We wanted to take on the challenge to raise the money for Sharon’s Garden our new rabbit garden. The rabbit garden is very important now as the area which they live for part of the year will be under construction very shortly for another purpose.
Although there was a little bit of training earlier in the summer, due to the rise in the number of animals at this time of year particularly with so many kittens, it has not left the time or the energy to train which as everyone knows to run this amount of miles without training is going to be a very hard slog. BUT the girls are still determined to carry out the 10 miles even if it means walking it or even crawling it!! Please give what you can no matter how little, we need some sympathy money to help get us to the finish line!

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.

Booty Needs Donations
This is Booty, a beautiful black female, who was found under a car with a badly smashed face. She was very scared and in pain but we managed to gain her trust and took her straight to the vet. She has had masses of anti biotics, pain killers and a lot of surgery. She is being fed by drip, and is currently having specialist jaw surgery. We know this is going to cost a lot of money to make her better, but we would never refuse to help an animal like this. Her injuries included a huge hole in her palate, fractures in jaw, and her tongue was nearly cut off. She also has some eye injuries, and is probably blind in one eye, but despite all this she has been the perfect patient, and loves a cuddle or three. Donations are welcome via the “Make a Donation” link below (remember to add the word “Booty” in the comments column), or email firstname.lastname@example.org for an alternative way to pay. Thank you for supporting this gorgeous little girl.
End of July update: Booty’s feeding tube has now been removed & although being hand fed she has started to semi lap water & liquid food. She is not out of the woods yet but we will monitor her progress & talk to another yet to see if they have any thoughts. Her main problem seems to be her tongue to which she has had a further operation.
September update: Booty is now living in a lovely large room with huge garden room with some of our Golden Oldies, and they have settees to lounge about on. She is eating totally herself, but due to her ‘short’ tongue she puts her nose in the liquidized food, and causes rather a mess everywhere when she shakes! So Booty had another operation on 19th September at the specialist orthopaedic vet to enable her to open her mouth wider, and hopefully get more food in her mouth so she does not need to put her face right in & get in such a mess. It’s early days yet, but she is back with the oldies who she loves (and did miss them) and seems very happy now.
We’ll keep you posted on how she progresses! Thank you all for kind words and donations so far.
