Meet the Animals

The Starlight Trust is an animal welfare and rescue organisation based in Surrey

Current Animals

These are some of animals currently in our care. Apologies – this year has been so busy, it has been impossible to keep the site updated with all the animals we’ve admitted. We hope, early in 2019, to make some changes that will make the site easier to keep updated. Meanwhile, we will at least ensure that pages for animals for rehoming are up to date so visitors know which animals we have for adoption. Currently (21/12/18) we do not have any animals looking for homes since we have been focusing on pigeons the last couple of months. We’ll update once this changes.

The tags below their pictures tell you the current ‘status’ of each animal/group.

In treatment – guests currently receiving extra care such as medication or hand feeding.
In Recovery – guests who have been poorly but are now recovering.
Under Assessment – pets we are getting to know or wildlife we are assessing for release.
Pre-Release – wild guests who are preparing to go back to the wild.
Reserved – pets who are reserved for their new home.
Adoptable – pets who are ready to start their new lives. Could you be their new family?
Permanent Resident – wildlife unable to be released or pets we have decided should stay here due to health or behavioural issues.

Success Stories

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

Carrie

Carrie

Carrie was advertised for free online. We picked her up and found she had an ear infection and bad mites. After treatment she found a lovely new home.
Bonny

Bonny

Bonnie arrived in poor condition with mites and injuries to her tail. After treatment we found her a lovely new home.
Clyde

Clyde

Clyde hadn't been handled much prior to coming here and it took a lot of work (and a fair bit of chocolate) to get him used to being touched. We found him a home with an experienced, patient owner who was able to win him round.
Leo

Leo

Leo was advertised free online so we picked him up and found him a lovely new home who was able to work on his confidence.
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.
