We are scheduled to reopen the Rescue from Monday 8th June via appointment only
If you are interested in rehoming one of our cats / dogs please visit our website first where you will find all of our animals that are looking for a forever home.
Please give us a call first to discuss whether you are suitably matched and we can then arrange an appointment to meet your chosen rehomer.
What have we done to ensure we are meeting guidelines?
▪️ Arranged appointment only - meaning that you will not come into contact with anyone outside of your group & everything will be cleaned and disinfected thoroughly before your visit.
▪️ Only one member of staff or One household in the cattery at any one time.
▪️ Only one member of staff and one customer inside the office at any one time.
▪️Minimal contact with staff, we will have forms and information ready for you to fill out inside the cattery.
▪️Staff will be using correct PPE for your safety.
▪️Plenty of distancing signage & markers
▪️Hand sanitizers available both inside the cattery and outside of the office.
▪️ Handles / surfaces / card machine are disinfected after every use
We would like to thank everyone for their patience during this time but we cannot wait to return to our new 'normal' and get our rehomers successfully into their new homes!
The rescue is open to the public for viewing between 11.30am - 3.30pm daily. You do not need to make an appointment, just report to reception on arrival. The fee for adopting a cat is £50.00. They are all vaccinated, microchipped, de-flead, wormed and neutered (if old enough).
If you have seen a cat on our website / Instagram / Facebook page that you are interested in please give us a call on 0190545655 to discuss whether they are still available. Please be aware that we are unable to reserve any animal via phone or email. You will have to visit us and meet the animal before we can reserve the animal to you and start the adoption process.
Upon arrival please report to reception and a member of staff will be able to show you the cattery.
If you would like more information please visit our homing procedures page.
Below are the current cats available for rehoming:
Reggie - 10-12yrs, DSH
Reggie arrived at Danemere from the vets as a unchipped stray therefore we sadly have no previous history on him. Reggie is a super confident little fella, he's incredibly friendly and will meow to say hello - he's got the loudest greeting in the cattery! Reggie adores head and cheek rubs and will lay down and wriggle around if he is really enjoying it.
Reggie has been very overlooked in the cattery, but he has became one of our receptionists favourite cats. Reggie can be fiesty sometimes - if he doesn't like something that you are doing i.e stroking towards his lower back he will let you know but as long as you give head / cheek rubs he is content. Reggie is very sweet and will happily receive a fuss all day long if he could.
We are unsure as to what he is like with other cats. Reggie has such a sweet little face with a sweet personality to match. Reggie would most likely suit a home where there are no children or other animals. He would love a home where there are plenty of warm (bonus points for 'sun' spots - he loves sun bathing) places to snooze and relax for the rest of his days.
Monty - 7/8 yrs, DSH
Monty was brought to us because of a sudden change in behaviour around his brother.
Monty is a very affectionate, super friendly cat who loves being fussed. Monty does not mind being picked up for a cuddle. Monty is good with children and dogs and has lived with them previously.
Monty appeared to be in good health however, sadly when we took Monty for his routine vet visit we discovered that he has a heart murmur. He currently does not need medication but may need it in the future. We have a statement from our vets (MacArthur Barstow & Gibbs) below to give you more information.
''Monty is a lovely cat looking for a home but he has a heart murmur.
This means there is turbulent blood flow through his heart.
A heart scan has showed he has thickening of his Left Ventricle (the largest chamber in the heart), however the Atrium (smaller chamber) is currently normal.
Cats can have thickening of their Left Ventricle and show no symptoms for years, however it can not be predicted if, or when, the thickening may progress to cause heart disease.
Because Monty's atrium is a normal size and he is showing no symptoms, no treatment is currently needed.
However, it is advised that he has yearly heart scans to monitor the size of his Atrium. If it becomes enlarged Monty will then need life long medication.
Cats that develop heart disease have shorter lives.
It would be good for a new owner to monitor Monty's resting respiratory rate, (ie, when he is fast asleep), once a month. If the breathing rate is higher than 30 breaths a minute , this could be an early sign that Monty's heart is starting to struggle.''
Monty will need an attentive, understanding owner that is prepared to care for Monty's individual needs and will take it step by step knowing what the future will hold with annual heart scans and possible medication. If you think that you could look past Monty's condition and give him a well-deserved wonderful home or would like more information please give us a call on 01905 345655 to discuss further.
Midnight - 9 yrs, DSH
Midnight came to Danemere along with BlackJack as the previous owners child had developed allergies towards them. We do not have a lot of information on them however, during lock down we have spent lots of extra quality time getting to know Midnight's personality.
We do know that Midnight was able to go outside in her previous home via a cat flap but would much rather stay indoors. Although Midnight lived with Blackjack, they did not necessarily get on. They both prefer being in their own company.
When Midnight arrived she was very friendly but shy. As time has gone on she has lots of confidence, she loves to greet you every morning with a hello. When the staff are cleaning she carefully watches and waits patiently for her cuddle time. Midnight is very friendly and loves her head rubs, she does not mind being picked up and adores a good groom. She is a very lazy girl, she loves nothing more than spending her time or rather, life in bed - she sure lives the life of luxury! As you can see on one of the photographs in the slideshow, she struggles finding the will to get out of bed some days (we've all been there!) it's just too comfy!
Midnight would suit a home with calm children, she could be rehomed as a house cat but she is not a fan of dogs.
Crumble- 5 yrs, DSH
Crumble came to Danemere as her previous owner was struggling due to ill health. We were told from the previous owner that Crumble is a very attentive, loving little lady who adores a belly rub! Crumble enjoys the thrill of being on an adventure outside and will not come home until she is fulfilled - Feeling the wind blowing in her hair, she just loves exploring. Crumble likes to play with toys and of course – she loves her food, especially Dreamies.
However, Crumble can be very timid at first until she gets used to you; she hasn’t faced situations where she has had to meet many people before and came from a very quiet home.
We think that Crumble would suit a home without children and other pets, preferably a quiet home like she is used to. That way it will be easier for her to settle in, be happy and let her true personality shine through.
11/06 – Crumble has not been with us very long, just a few days, this is out of her comfort zone and so she is currently readjusting to all of the new sounds and smells of the cattery. We will update with more information as we get to know her and she becomes comfortable.
