Cats for Rehoming

Rehoming Animals Since 2005

Rehoming a cat can be a rewarding and exciting experience but it is important that you understand the commitment can be anything up to twenty years of your life.

At Woodlands Animal Sanctuary we understand that all our animals’ health and well-being is paramount. We work with Rufford Veterinary Group to ensure that all our cats and kittens receive the highest standards of care and medical treatment possible before being rehomed. This includes:

  • Veterinary Checks
  • Worming Treatment
  • Microchipping
    All of our cats and kittens leave Woodlands registered to the Sanctuary to ensure they can be re-united with their family.
  • Tests for Feline Aids and Leukemia where necessary
  • Spayed/Neutered
    All cats over 6 months old are spayed/neutered
  • Vaccinations
    All of our cats receive at least their first vaccination before leaving Woodlands. Any cat who has not yet received it, will also leave us with a voucher for Rufford Veterinary Group for their second vaccination. It is of upmost importance that your cat has the same type and brand of vaccine for its second vaccination as the first vaccine. Hence we ask you to return to Rufford Veterinary group to get the second vaccination regardless of which veterinary practice you would normally use.
This care costs over £175 per cat to Woodlands Animal Sanctuary but rehoming a cat from Woodlands means we only ask for a donation of £85.

Our Rehoming Process

All of our applications go through the same three-stage process. This helps us to ensure not only the cats safety, but that you and your new cat are the perfect match. Please also pay special attention to our rehoming rules outlined at the bottom of this webpage.

Rehoming Rules

We will not rehome an adult cat into a home where there are existing adult cats.

We ensure that no cat or kitten is released to its new home until 48 hours after its vaccination.

If there are other pets in the household i.e. dogs, we will normally recommend a kitten unless we have an adult cat who is used to living with dogs.

All existing cats in any household must be neutered.

All cats and kittens that leave Woodlands Animal Sanctuary must leave with the food and litter that they are currently using here, this can be purchased from our onsite shop.
Belle
Belle
Belle is approximately 18 months old and came to Woodlands Animal Sanctuary from Rufford vets after being brought in as a very unwell stray cat. Unfortunately nobody came forward to claim Belle even though she is so friendly and has obviously been a cherished pet at some point! She was not microchipped and so it has been impossible to locate her previous home. She is now looking for a new start in life and is more than ready to go!

Storm and Nado
Storm and Nado
Storm and Nado originally came to Woodlands Animal Sanctuary with their mother when they were very young kittens. They successfully grew up here and were rehomed to a family that unfortunately returned them 24 hours later due to an allergic reaction in the family.

Luckily they found another home 3 weeks later and have spent the past few months growing into two beautiful, affectionate and loving little ladies. Sadly it was once again not to be for these gorgeous girls as their owner also had an allergy. The family had tried to make it work for a long time but unfortunately it became unbearable and they had to make a tough decision.

Despite the upheavel that they have had to endure in their short lives, both kittens are fun loving, energetic, affectionate and well adjusted cats. They would be suitable for almost any home environment and would be ideal for a family with children (they love to play!).

Jinx
Jinx
Jinx is a very happy, affectionate and loving cat that is looking for a new start in life. His owners cared for him very much but unfortunately they could not stay in their own home and could not take Jinx with him, although they wanted to. Jinx enjoys attention and fuss and is eager to meet new people, particularly those who come bearing head rubs! He will suit almost any home and would make an excellent addition to most families.
