Looking for a new home.

Special Appeal for Lily who has been in our care since 20/03/2015.

She was previously cared for by her elderly feeder that had to leave her behind when she went into a nursing home.
When Lily came into our care she struggled terribly with the busy multi cat environment and as the days turned into months and then years we decided to give Lily her freedom as one of our reception cats. So every year Lily gets her freedom to reception in the spring and every winter she comes back into the cattery in the hope of finding her fur-ever home.

Lily is a sweet gentle natured cat and although terribly shy she will welcome a gentle pet and some attention. 
She seeks a quiet home with an experienced patient owner willing to offer her a chance to shine.
If interested in offering Lily her forever home please visit the centre during opening hours 12-4pm Tues - Sun.

Adoption Procedure - Cats

If you wish to adopt a cat from the Rainbow Rehoming Centre come on down to the centre and have a chat with our staff.  We want to make sure that we get the right cat for you …

Our cat adoption fee is £35 and this covers the following:-

  • Worming and de-fleaing
  • Neutering

Before you adopt a cat you must agree and sign the Terms and Conditions (this is a legal document).

When you take your new pet home you will be given an Adoption Pack.  This pack includes advice on looking after your new pet; we also have a Pet Advice Section on our website.

If you have any questions regarding the welfare of your pet please contact the Rainbow Centre and we will be glad to help.

You will need a cat carrier so your cat can be brought home safely, please bring a cat carrier with you to the centre or you can rent a cat carrier from us for £15. 

All cats over 6 months old have been neutered before leaving the Rainbow Rescue & Rehoming Centre.

Please Note:

When the Rainbow Rehoming Centre takes in an animal, whether it is a cat, dog, kitten or puppy it is with the intention of finding this animal its forever home. Our commitment to this animal is not temporary though, as even after adoption a Rainbow animal remains a 'Rainbow animal' for life. So if at any time after adoption, whether it is one week, one year or ten years and you find that you cannot take care of your Rainbow pet you must contact us at the centre and your pet will be returned into our care. Under no circumstances should a Rainbow animal be passed on.

If you have any questions regarding the welfare of your pet please contact the Rainbow Centre and we will be glad to help.
