Re-homing Animals Over The Christmas Period

The RSPCA has issued the following policy with reference to re-homing animals over the Christmas period.

As we rely on a network of volunteers to conduct our home visits, we often find that the speed with which we can get the home visits done slows down, as the demands of Christmas affect our volunteers too. Because of this, it may take a little longer for your adoption to be processed and we appreciate your patience.

Christmas is a busy and hectic time for most households. Unusual noise and activities, extra demands upon the new owners` time and the difficulties an animal may face when settling into a new home. Experience tells us it could end in tears, so we may not release new adoptions to homes before Christmas if it is best for all concerned.

However, we do understand that for some people the festive period is a calm, quiet time and every adoption is dealt with on an individual basis.

We urge everyone thinking of adopting a pet at Christmas to consider the long term commitment required to properly care for an animal. People should take into account whether they have the time and money to care for an animal 365 days of the year for the next 10 -20 years. Factors to consider include daily grooming, feeding, exercise and ongoing costs such as vet bills and registration fees.

If you are confident that a pet is the right addition to your home the RSPCA recommends visiting a rescue centre with all the family so they can pick out the pet which will be best suited to their particular life style. Pets are a lifelong commitment. Consider carefully before adopting a pet to ensure that this pet will be loved for life.

Female 8 years old. Domestic short haired TorbieCallie is a gentle sweet natured girl and enjoys nothing more than a fuss, she can however be nervous of new surroundings, although she settled very quickly at the cattery.Callie is looking for a quiet older family to look after her. She will need time to settle in a new home and show how beautiful she can be.
Mini - Black and white DSH female, 2 years old.Nala - Tabby DSH female, 5 months oldMini and Nala are a gorgeous mother and daughter pair, who are very bonded, often found cosied up together in their bed, blissful in each other's company. They are therefore looking for a home together. They are affectionate and sociable, and enjoy human company as well as each other's. They are lively and playful and are entertaining companions and a joy to have around. Nala has unusual markings and is often admired by people coming into the cattery, and her mum Mini is very smart too, with her striking contrasting black and white markings. Nala had a fall in her previous home, but doesn't let her experience hold her back. Ideally, they need someone who can be home for a good proportion of the day, with a secure garden to keep Nala safe. They would like an older family with no other pets.We would love to see them off to their new home, as they have been with us a little while now, and really deserve to find their loving forever home.
Tortie DSH female, 10 years old.Pepsi is a gentle girl who really enjoys your company. She is not fond of other cats so suited to an only cat household. She however loves attention from people. She can be initially shy at first but once she has settled shows her true self which is a sweet and happy cat.
