Looking for a new home.

It's OK little Penny your safe now 

Penny was found living stray in and around the Pennyburn council dump area of Derry/Londonderry.

She had been reported as a feral but when our experienced volunteer cat trapper humanely trapped her she, realised she was tame. It is clear that the newly named Penny was a pet at some point but has been living her distance from humans for some time.

When she arrived at the centre she was terribly unsure of everyone and everything, but over time she has realised she can trust her daily carers and even embraces the odd belly rub. 

Penny is aged approx. 1 year old and gets on with other cats.

Now in our main cattery area Penny is understandably shy of strangers to begin but we hope that some caring person will offer Penny a chance to show her beautiful sweet nature. 

Penny gets on with other cats, she seeks an experienced cat owner and a quieter home with children aged 12+ years old.

To offer Penny her forever home please visit the centre during opening hours 12-4pm Tuesday – Sunday or for enquires ring 028 812882 during opening hours.

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.
