At Woodlands Animal Sanctuary we successfully rehome over 200 cats a year!
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.
Rehoming Animals since 2005
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:
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.
At Woodlands we admit cats every week who are in need of a new home. We understand that choosing a cat to rehome can be hard, so if you cannot see a cat that you would like to meet, then why not join our waiting list using the form on the right. We will send you monthly updates on our new arrivals and more information on rehoming a cat.
