DOG RESCUE

To view a dog you must first make an appointment.

01226 298271


All our dogs are vaccinated, micro chipped, neutered & wormed.
Vouchers are issued if we haven't done these before they go to their new homes.
The adoption fee covers some of these costs- the rest is covered by fund raising.
 
Any dog that comes from the stray kennels will undergo a period of quarantine to make sure that they go to their new homes as fit & healthy as possible.

We are grateful to Pets At Home & the Animal Rescue Foundation  
for the sponsorship of one of our kennels
each for 12 months.

 Merlin is currently staying in a foster home. To view him please call or email us.
Merlin is a 4 year old greyhound who has come into our care from the stray kennels.
Merlin is great with kids and is currently living happily with a medium/large dog in his foster home.
He has a lovely temperament and is extremely gentle.
Merlin is naughty with small dogs (wanting to chase).
This is likely due to him been an ex-racing greyhound where he has been trained to chase small animals.
Merlin is fantastic with medium size dogs and above.
Merlin has been to summer gala's with his fosterers and behaved well in the big crowd.
He travels well in the car and behaves well at the vets.
Merlin is black with little flecks of white in his coat - it looks as if he has snowflakes on him!!

POPPY






Poppy is an 18 month old Staffy cross who never stops wagging her tail.
She is very loving and enjoys cuddles and sloppy kisses.
She is house trained and sleeps quietly at night.
Poppy is strong on the lead, but walks very well when using a halti.
She is understandably extremely excited when coming out of her kennel for walks, but is calm in her kennel and in a home.
Poppy would need to be the only pet in her new home.

 Please consider a Staffy or Staffy cross when looking to adopt a dog,

 They are always overlooked due to negative portrayal and due to this sad fact many are left behind in rescues and the stray kennels.

 Despite misconceptions the Staffordshire Bull Terrier is a loyal, loving and reliable breed.

Please give Poppy a chance- she has been overlooked for so long now & is really ready to give lots of love to her new family

GEMMA
Gemma on the sponsored walk with her new pal Kia.





Gemma has been in our care since February. She is approx. 2 years old & had been in a foster home for a few months.
Unfortunately the Rescue that had her disbanded & the fosterer couldn't keep her so she ended up in the pound.
Helping Yorkshire Poundies rescued her & brought her to us. 
She is a lovely, friendly Staffy. She is house trained  & has been spayed.
She has been to the vets for her check up & was so good.
She jumped in the car & sat looking out of the back window- she obviously loves going for a drive!
Gemma is only a small staffy -she looks a lot bigger on her photo's.
She will make a marvelous pet for her lucky new owners.-could that be you??

 Please consider a Staffy or Staffy cross when looking to adopt a dog,

 They are always overlooked due to negative portrayal and due to this sad fact many are left behind in rescues and the stray kennels.

 Despite misconceptions the Staffordshire Bull Terrier is a loyal, loving and reliable breed.

CAT RESCUE

All of our cats are in foster homes.
For further details please contact Sharon at 
                                      

 
Daisy & Dotty

 
'ok- this is me having a little snuggle of an evening'
 
'don't tell my sister I'm sleeping with the enemy!!!'
 
'another favourite place, on the stairs -you never know who I might trip up!!-haha '
 
 
'my sister thinks she's gunna be the next Mrs Mills, though I don't know who that is -Kathleen our foster mum knows !'
 
 
'if I roll about on the floor perhaps I'll get some food'
 
 
'oooh-she also sleeps with the enemy!'
 
 
'Kathleen, our foster Mum has bought camouflage blinds, especially for us!!

 Dotty and Daisy are sisters and will be 2 years old this July.  

They were born in the cattery in RAW'S care and mum found a home really quickly leaving the 2 girls still searching!  

We are looking for a very special person/family to take care of Dotty and Daisy as they are very shy and timid and don’t really like human contact.

 They have been at our fosterers a long time now and get on really well with the 2 dogs she has, cleaning their ears and sitting with the dogs too.

 These two girls need to be re-homed together and would be best suited to a quiet household

with no small children where they would be left to their own devises.  

Dotty and Daisy will need an owner with lots of patience and a willingness to let them settle in at their own pace. 

 If you think you could offer all that to our longest serving residents please give us a call.

PAUL





Paul is a 5 year old male ginger and white moggie. He is fairly quiet and loves to come curl up on your knee. He is friendly and has a lovely nature.  Paul likes to get all the attention and would prefer to be an only cat.  He would be fine with children but would not like to share his new home with any dogs as he might miss out on some "stroking time " As with all our cats Paul is neutered, microchipped, flead and wormed and as an added bonus Paul will go to his new home with a " vaccination for life" certificate from his previous owner which means his new owner wont have to pay for his annual boosters for the rest of his life. Can you offer Paul the chance of new start?  You will be rewarded in return with lots of love and snuggles from this gorgeous cat.

JESSIE




Jessie

Jessie is a 5 month old black and white little lady.  We think due to her fluffiness she will grow up to be semi long haired so will need regular brushing to keep the tangles away.  She will love this as company and attention is what she craves !  She is very affectionate and loves to be the central attraction.  She is used to living with another cat ( tigger) but can be rehomed separately as we feel at this young age both would adapt really quickly.  She is also used to living with young children and is not phased by new experiences.  Jessie will be the perfect addition to any family and is just waiting to become part of yours !!

Reduced adoption fee if rehomed with Tigger- please enquire


For more information please leave a message & phone number on 01226 298271
or email   cats@roystonanimalwelfare.org

TIGGER



Tigger

Tigger is a 5 month old little boy who as a grey undercoat and as with Jessie will need regular grooming as we think he will be semi long haired when fully grown.  This wont be a problem though as he will sit on your lap and let you do this all day, in between stroking and playtime that is !! Tigger is used to other cats and young children.  He is friendly, playful and loves a lap to curl up on and have some cuddle time.  He would be the perfect addition to any family and would fit in really quickly.

Reduced adoption fee if rehomed with Jessie - please enquire.

For more information please leave a message & phone number on 01226 298271
or email   cats@roystonanimalwelfare.org

TINKERBELL





Tinkerbell is a black and white little lady of around 1 year old.  She had 4 kittens on easter sunday and has been doing a marvelous job looking after them ever since but now its Tinkerbell's turn to find a loving home .  She is very friendly and loves a stroke and a fuss.  She is fine with other cats and does not mind our fosterers dogs.  She would be ideal for a young family and she likes to explore be kept amused.

For more information please leave a message & phone number on 01226 298271
or email   cats@roystonanimalwelfare.org

DAINTY









Dainty is 11 wks old 13/7/2014 she is the smallest kitten from Tinkerbells litter and the last one looking for a home.  She is a little shy at first but as you can see from the photos loves to play with her feather toy.  Dainty's new owner will need to give her time to adapt to her new surroundings, it must be very daunting for these little ones at first !  That understood we are sure Dainty will develop into a lovely little lady just like her mum !!  She is used to other cats and dogs and again would be great with children.

ROBYN 



Robyn is a mackrel tabby and white petite lady of aprox 4 to 5 years old.  She was abandoned in a house with a doggie friend and brought to us when the RSPCA couldn't accommodate both animals.  The other striking thing about Robyn is that she only has 3 legs ( you cant tell from the photos)  so someone must have cared about her once upon a time !!  Her lack of limb doesn't hold her back in any way she is very mobile and can run up and down stairs with the best of em !!  She is a little timid till she gets to know you but after that loves affection and attention.  She gets on with other cats and is fine with dogs.  She will be fine with kids as long they understand she needs space of her own sometimes.  Can you offer this little lady a new start that she deserves?

For more information please leave a message & phone number on 01226 298271

EDDIE





Eddie is a cheeky tabby and white chap of around 3 years old. He has had at least 3 owners in as many years and has been passed from pillar to post in the last 2 months when he was reported missing then when found, his new "owner" decided they didnt want him back as they had replaced him with a kitten ( after 2 weeks!! unbelievable).   He is very confident, loving and sociable and is in seventh heaven when being stroked and made a fuss of,  he even rolls over so he can get the full tickle experience !!  He would be great with children and gets on with other cats.  Hes not sure about dogs at the moment but is getting used to them at our fosterers. Lets get this sweetheart the stable home environment he needs and deserves.

OSCAR







Oscar is a friendly male brown and white moggie looking for a loving home.  He is 10 years old but still in great health and full of life.  He is very friendly to anyone and every one and he loves attention and cuddles.  He could go with other cats and pets quite happily although he has never lived with a dog before.  Oscar likes to be both inside and outside and is of course fully litterbox trained, although he prefers to go outside.  He is flead and wormed, and as an added bonus Oscar will go to his new home with a " vacination for life" certificate from his previous owner which means his new owner won't have to pay for his anuall boosters for the rest of his life.. He has been neutered and has a microchip so details would just need changing on it.
