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 and kittens from 9 weeks to 6 months come with a neutering voucher for Rufford Veterinary Group
  • 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 for one and £160 for a pair.

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.  Dogs are able to come to the Sanctuary to be introduced to the cat.

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.
We currently do not have any kittens available for reservation.  Please only fill out our online application if you are looking for an adult cat.  We will keep you updated on our socials when we have kittens available for reservations!  Thank you for your understanding!

Unfortunately we are closed to cat viewing appointments at the moment due to the current situation with COVID-19

The Cats

Millie
Millie
This gorgeous girl is Millie, she is around 2-3 years old. Millie came to us on the 2nd October and was given to us from another rescue after she was handed back to them when her old owner didn't have time for her anymore.

Millie is quite timid needs an understanding home to look past her current temperament and have the willingness to give her time and patience to come out of her shell. She hasn't settled in very well to the shelter lifestyle and has had quite a rough time of it recently. We do think she has the potential to be a lovely cat, given time.

Millie is awaiting to see our vet, but then should be ready to go to her forever home!
Melody
Melody
This gorgeous lady is Melody, who is approximately 2 years old!

Melody came into our care on the 28th May at no fault of her own. Melody's old owner was going to put her asleep due to no longer wanting her any longer. Thankfully the vets contacted us and we were able to give her a second chance her.

Melody is a sweet and vocal girl but can be feisty. This means that she would benefit from an experienced owner who has no other pets or young children. She was brought to us at the understanding she absolutely hates other cats, therefore in a shelter setting has made her agitated. She is however super playful and loves to interact with toys!
Betty
Betty
This beautiful girl is Betty, she is 5 years old and was brought into us on the 27th September as she was left on her own when her owner fell ill.

She is a sweet girl who enjoys a stroke on her terms but will need an understanding home to giver her space when she wants it. Betty is also on a weight management diet which she will need to stay on to prevent her weight gain. She loves her space and would make a great outdoor cat!

Betty has been microchipped, first vaccinated and spayed and ready to go to her forever home.
Darcy - Reserved
Darcy - Reserved
This lovely lad is Darcy. He is around 3 years old and came into us on the 24th September as a stray.

Darcy needed a good few baths when he first came in after living rough for a while, he could use some extra TLC and love from his new owners to get him looking and feeling like a proper owned cat! He can sometimes be a little on the timid side, but has the sweetest personality!

Darcy is first vaccinated, neutered and microchipped and ready to go to his forever home!
Bobby

Not available just yet as still on medication - but can register interest

This is Bobby who is 4 years old!

Bobby came in with his brother Theo on the 22nd September, who he will need to be rehomed with, due to being no longer wanted. They are both neutered, 1st vaccinated and microchipped. They have also gone through a major dental operation as they had severe gingivitis and had to have multiple teeth removed. Don't let this put you off though as they are recovering well and are beautiful natured cats!

Bobby, the largest of the two, is extremely sweet and craves snuggles. He loves his head scratching and is a keen favourite of our volunteers!

These black beauties are Isobel & Daisy!

Daisy came in on the 8th October and Isobel on the 10th! They were found fending for themselves on the streets and living in peoples garages. We believe them to be sisters as they get on so well, therefore will need to go together as a pair. They are spayed, 1st vaccinated and microchipped so ready to go!

They both have such a lovely nature and get very jealous when you are giving the other more attention! They love a good stroke, purr like mad and roll over for belly rubs, what else could you ask for?

Kittens
Kittens
We currently have multiple kittens in our care at Woodlands Animal Sanctuary, and due to Covid-19, viewings cannot take place. Therefore we are please to introduce our Kitten Match Making Service!

No kitten is created equal, some kittens in our care were born on site and raised in warm environments whilst others were brought after they were found under sheds and other cold places. Therefore some kittens are more timid than others and require a specific home.

With our Kitten Match Making Service, we will be able to pair you with your perfect kitten, all depending on their temperament and behaviour, as well as your current home situation. If you are interested in rehoming a kitten from us, please fill out a form on our Rehoming During Quarantine page.
Pearl

Peal would excel in a quiet, older household where she can relax and trust her surroundings, she would also prefer to be a housecat as she loves her home comforts!

Pearl is just waiting to be seen by our vet, but then should be ready to go to her forever home!
