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.

The Cats

This is Harry, who is approx. 2-3 years old! Harry has been at Woodlands since 4th September 2018 and was brought in by one of our Staff members that saw him roaming the streets.

This was due to his previous owners moving house and leaving him behind.

Harry would love an understanding home with no or older children so he can chill out and watch the world go by!

Princess - RESERVED
This beautiful girl is Princess and she is approximately 4 years old!

She was brought into Woodlands with four other cats, after her owner could no longer look after them due to illness. She can be rehomed separately from her friends or together!

Princess loves to be treated like royalty and adores a good fuss and stroke! You can really hear her purring away when you give her lots of attention!
Jasmine - RESERVED
Jasmine - RESERVED
This beautiful girl is Jasmine and she is approximately 2 years old!

She was brought into Woodlands on 12th March 2019 as a stray with a severe flea allergy. Jasmine suffered terribly with inflamed and flaking skin and undergone a range of treatments which has helped her grow back her soft black fur

Despite this, Jasmine is a loving girl who loves cuddles, purring her head off, and being vocal! She has a very unique meow and loves to show it off! She also has a very unique white belly!

She would need to go to an understanding home, as she is on specialised food due to her allergies, other than this, she is a normal and happy cat!
This beautiful girl is Sassy and she is approximately 2 years old!

She was brought into Woodlands on 20th April 2019 whilst pregnant and had her kittens shortly after. Sassy was an incredibly good mum, raising her kittens and allowing the staff to interact with her and her kittens with no problem!

All of Sassy's kittens have now found loving homes, and it is her turn now! Sassy is an incredibly friendly cat, and loves cuddles! She just can't get enough of them!
This beautiful girl is Dorothy and she is approximately 6 years old!

She was brought into Woodlands on 12th March 2019 whilst pregnant and had her kittens shortly after. Dorothy was an incredibly good mum, raising her kittens 90% on her own with no need for staff intervention!

All Dorothy's kittens have now found loving homes, and it is her turn now! Dorothy definitely prefers cuddles on her own terms, but this may be due to the fact that she does not enjoy being in a cattery setting
