What We Do

We love animals

We are a home based, non-profit voluntary organisation supporting adoption, rehabilitating, finding good homes, fostering, caring for the neglected, offering sanctuary and long term care to a variety of animals including:-

  • CHIPMUNKS
  • CHINCHILLAS
  • DEGUS
  • GERBILS
  • GUINEA PIGS
  • HAMSTERS
  • MICE
  • RABBITS
  • SHEEP
  • GOATS
  • ..... Even FISH!!!

All pets that come into our care are checked and monitored before being put up for adoption. Rabbits are neutered and vaccinated and will only be rehomed to live in pairs. It is our mission to find each animal the right loving home and companionship of their own kind (with the exception of solitary species such as Syrian hamsters).

Apart from the animals we have available for adoption, we also have a number that cannot be re-homed due to ongoing health problems or "old age". We do not give up on animals just because they have problems - we provide them with the sanctuary and long term care they need.

As well as concentrating on the little ones, we've given sanctuary to resident sheep Clara and Stomp, Larry and Oscar, who featured on Channel 4's Pet Rescue programme back in 2002, and a characterful Pygmy Goat called Baaaz who was rescued after being found wandering down the A127 and never claimed.

We've also fostered/adopted a number of Boxer dogs, as this is a breed close to our hearts, and have helped re-habilitate birds and wildlife. Animals have been referred to us by The Blue Cross, RSPCA, and Wood Green Animal Shelters.

In 2007 we became a Re-homing Centre Partner under the SUPPORT ADOPTION FOR PETS programme and were nominated Harlow Pets at Home's local Charity of the Year in 2019 and 2020. We are extremely grateful for their continued support.

PLEASE HELP US TO RAISE MUCH NEEDED FUNDS FOR THE ANIMALS IN OUR CARE.

We rely solely on donations and fund raising, as well as volunteer fosterers who look after animals in their own homes until the right loving FOREVER HOME can be found.
