View Full Version : Please all read before looking at cats for adoption

All cats for re homing on this page are in rescue centres in the UK.
All people interested in adopting from one of these rescues will be required to pay a donation and sign a contract with the rescue.
These Cats are NOT free!!!!.
All Cats have usually been fully Vaccinated, Neutered, Micro Chipped, had health checks with the Vets and behaviour checks before they leave the rescue which all costs a lot of money.
Most rescues do not get any other funding other than donations given to them. They need this money to be able to carrying on saving other animals so please bare this in mind when giving donations.
All rescues have different set donations so please contact the rescue in question to find out how much the adoption fee will be. http://i659.photobucket.com/albums/uu316/AnimalLifelineUK/Smilies/Glitter/1890136mod2t38zy9.gif

We have had a lot of people not enquire about animals on our site needing homes because someone else has already posted up showing their interest :( . Please always post your interest or contact the rescue even if you see someone has already shown interest. When it comes to adopting a rescue animal it isn't always first come first served. It's important that the animal is matched up with the most suitable family/home to ensure the best chance of a successful placement. If you think that the animal would fit in well with your family/circumstances/lifestyle then please do apply. If you don't ask you'll never know! :)

Never think that just because one rescue has turned you down that all rescues will; they each have their own criteria to determine which home is most suitable for which animal. Animals come into rescue from a variety of backgrounds and with their own specific needs and just because you may not be best placed to help one animal doesn't mean that there isn't another out there waiting for a home just like yours! What may be the perfect home for one animal could be the opposite for another.

In summary, please don't be put off by others posting on threads before you and please don't be put off from rescuing an animal just because one rescue turns you down. There are so many animals in rescues all over the UK so please keep trying; there will be at least one out there suited to you and your household. :)
