Jess is a short-haired tortoiseshell cat.  She came to RATS because her elderly owner has moved into sheltered accommodation.

She needs a quiet home without young children and where there a no other pets.   She is quite nervous at the moment and will need time to settle into a new home.

She has been neutered and her vaccinations are up to date until April 2017.

If you could offer Jess a home where she can feel safe and settled, please contact Liz on 01767 681157.

Alternatively please e-mail Philippa at who will be pleased to forward your enquiry on to the team

The Adoption Process

We have a number of animals in our care. Most are homeless through no fault
of their own and are looking for new homes and owners who can give them the attention they deserve.

Please take a few moments to familiarise yourself with our adoption procedure:

  • Step 1: The animal is admitted into our care, and assessed by our team.
  • Step 2: The animal is examined by a vet, who treats any ailments or injuries. 
  • Step 3: The appropriate team leader will liaise with the potential adopter to assist with their choice of animal.
  • Step 4: The potential new owners meet the animal, and decide if they want to adopt. New owners may be asked to visit the animal several times before the adoption takes place.
  • Step 5: A pre-adoption home visit will then be made to new owners premises to meet the members of the household and to ensure that the environment is right.
    Step 6: If the visit goes well you will be asked to collect the animal and for an adoption donation ( amount on request ) and to sign an agreement to care for the pet with a commitment to return it to us if you can't continue to do so.
