Success Stories

Meet the animals who we have found new homes or returned to the wild

Dylan

Dylan

Dylan was advertised free online and had been living in a tiny hamster cage all alone. We found him a new home where he had lots of friends and a lovely big cage.
Smokey, Val and Tina

Smokey, Val and Tina

Three degus all rescued from neglect and abandonment. Despite their bad starts they love people and enjoy lots of attention in their home.
Cabo and Lleno

Cabo and Lleno

The boys owner passed away and they were only found sometime later. Initially traumatised, they came round with gentle handling and are now thoroughly spoiled in their wonderful new home.
Bertie

Bertie

An abused puppy abandoned in Croydon. We fell in love and adopted him ourselves!
Harry, Fred and Robson

Harry, Fred and Robson

These boys were rescued from a home where they, and many other animals, were terribly neglected. We found them a safe new home.
Bruce

Bruce

Bruce was rescued from a home with lots of animals which were not receiving proper care. We found him a fabulous new home.
Minkie Mice

Minkie Mice

These mice were the result of a pet shop sexing them wrongly. Most went on to find new homes with the exception of Jules. He developed a skin issue and did himself some damage scratching so remained here as a resident.
Baby degus

Baby degus

These degus were from an accidental litter. We found them all new homes.

In Memory

We work so hard for all our animals but sometimes it’s just not enough. Every loss hurts so we keep their pages up on the website as a tribute to them.
