I’m Dash, a handsome, super fast 2 year old male Collie cross. I was rescued from and unpleasant home by Animal Wardens and am now looking for experienced, committed people to help me learn and have lots of fun. I have lots of energy and could run and play fetch all day. I need training around other dogs and am not suited to live with other animals. I need an adult only home with the time and patience to help me flourish.
Jet & Tiger Lily
Hi, my name is Jet and I am male, my friend is Tiger Lily and she is female. We are both 11 years old and we are looking for a home together. I am a confident, inquistive and affectionate boy. I love to explore and enjoy a fuss and sitting on your lap. Tiger Lily is very affectionate once she knows you, she can be nervous of loud noises. She loves to play and would happily sit on your lap all day given the chance. We are looking for an adult only home and would suit a retired couple or single person. We cannot live with other cats and we do not like dogs. Sorry, no young children please, we may be ok with quiet teenagers. We have lots of love to give to the right home, can you offer us a loving, forever home please? Love Jet & Tiger Lily x
Beryl & Agnes
Meet Beryl and Agnes, two female chinchillas. They are mother and daughter, Beryl is 3 1/2 years old and Agnes is 2 years old. They are very friendly and can often be found peering out of the cage having a nosy at what everyone is up to. They are looking for a loving home together.
Wizard and Willow
Hello my name is Wizard and I am looking for a new home with my daughter Willow. I am a six year old Tonkinese neutered boy and Willow is a 2 year old Tonkinese spayed female. We are a very closely bonded pair and like to go everywhere together. You will usually find us both squeezed into the same bed.Since we have been at Raystede we have settled in very well. Willow in particular is very playful and is growing in confidence. She can be very affectionate and has been known to climb up on your shoulders. She also likes to give people a little wash every now and again and is often grooming me too! I am a friendly boy and do like a bit of fuss little and often. I can also be quite playful but again little and often. We both like to go outside so would need a nice garden. We are very friendly at times when it is quiet and particularly like to join you on the bed for cuddles. If you have experience of our breed then that would be great. We really do need someone who can devote plenty of time to us. We have had three homes, two of them in quick succession, so are really keen to find our forever home. We may be ok with older children but will need to be the only cats in the home. We have never met dogs. Do you have the purrfect forever home for us? Love Wizard and Willow xx
Percy & Gracie
Hello my name is Percy and I am looking for a new home with my friend Gracie. We are both 2 years old but not from the same litter. I can be a little shy to start with but am a very sweet friendly lapcat who loves fuss and attention. Gracie can be a little more nervous and needs to bond with her new owner as she can be quite wary of people, given time and love I am sure she will become very friendly too. We would like a quieter adult home without dogs. We have lived with two other cats so may possibly live with new feline friends although Gracie might not be quite so keen. We would love to have a nice garden please which Gracie especially would need a slow introduction to. Because of my lovely white colour I would need sun block on my ears on sunny days to avoid any sun damage. Do you have the purrfect home for us? Love Percy and Gracie xx
Kate & Leo
Meet Kate & Leo, two 4 and a half year old English Spots. These two rabbits haven't had the best life so far, and have a few behavioural issues. Staff and volunteers have worked with them to get them used to people and they are becoming very friendly little bunnies. They will need a home where their new owners are willing to be patient and take time getting to know them. They are looking for their forever home togther.
Eddie & Trixie
Meet Eddie and Trixie, two lionhead crosses. Eddie is a 3 and a half year old, neutered male and Trixie is a 6 year old spayed female. They are sweet-natured bunnies who can often be found grazing in their garden. They are best friends so need to be homed together. Due to their breeds the need regular grooming to keep their fur in tip top condition.
Hello my names Vinnie and I''m a 6 year old staffie cross. I am looking for a quiet home where it''s not too busy and where I will be given time to settle. I find built up places and crowds of people too stressful so this will require patient training and will not be a quick fix. I require an understanding owner who will give me time to adjust to new situations and changes. When I first came to raystede I was very nervous of men but I have grown fond of the kennel guys that look after me so with time I do come round. I like some dogs and could live with older confident teenagers in the home. I have not been cat tested yet but staff can do this if you are suitable for me. Will you give me a chance to show you how lovely I am?
Hi my name is Lobuz. I am a 5 year old neutered male. I am a very confident and affectionate boy. I am also extremely smart and intelligent. I love a fuss and can be very loving and will sit on your lap. I really love human company and would benefit from a home where I am not left alone for long periods. I also love my food so you may need to watch that I don''t put on too much weight. I am a very active boy and would be best suited to a home as the only cat. A home that is not in a highly populated cat area would be best as I have been known to have the odd scrap with other cats. I have lived with a dog before but would need to meet any future canine friends to see how I react. I am brilliant with children. I love to play and enjoy being brushed. A garden is essential. I am looking for an experienced cat owner ideally as I have developed a spray behaviour issue which I need to un-learn which may take time. I am a lovely boy with a big personality. Can you offer me my purrfect forever home? Love Lobuz xx
Hi, my name is Tilly and I am 6 years old. I came to Raystede due to the ill health of my owner. I can be a bit shy to begin with but once I know you, I can be very friendly and love a fuss. I am looking for a quiet home (sorry, no children or other pets) and would suit a single person or a couple. I love to sit in boxes and can be very playful.I have settled into the cattery here and now feel much more confident although I am still not keen on being picked up. I don''t mind being brushed which will need to be done regularly due to my long fur. I would like a garden but I am unlikely to venture very far. I am a sweet girl, I just need to find that special person to love me. Could it be you? Love Tilly x
My name is Scamp and I am a fun loving 5 year old male Jack Russell cross. I enjoy my walks plus plenty of play and cuddles once tired out.

Basil, Herbie & Sweetie
Meet Basil, Herbie and Sweetie, a trio of neutered male chinchillas. Basil and Herbie are just over 2 years old and Sweetie is 7 and a half years old.

Hello my name is Jasper and I am nearly 9 years old.I am a little nervous with new people but once I know you I am a lovely cuddly lap cat. I do like to hunt and have been known to chase the odd squirrel so would need a nice garden. I have lived with a female cat who liked to groom me so may live with a friendly feline but would prefer not to live with dogs. I am also not happy living with young children so would like a child free home. I may take a while to settle in as I can be nervous to start. Do you have the purrfect home for me? Love Jasper xx
Hello my name is Button. I am an 11 year old female. I take a little while to get to know people but once I do I am very friendly and affectionate and I love a cuddle. I am looking for a home where I am the only cat, ideally not in a highly cat populated area. I do enjoy going outside at times especially when the weather is nice. I need an understanding owner who is happy to have a litter tray in the home at all times. I would prefer not to live with young children but may be ok with quiet older children. I have not lived with dogs though it is possible I might live with the right dog. Do you have the purrfect home for me? Love Button xx
My name is Hatchi and I am an 11 months old male LARGE mongrel (35kg) – possibly a Malamute cross? I’m a friendly pup needing an experienced, adult only home able to commit to my on-going training. I am really clever and starting to learn but I am strong and like to clown around! I need training around other dogs and am not suited to live with cats. New owners will need to have experience of large breeds and be able to provide the right environment and active lifestyle for me. I do also love my cuddles and will form a close bond to people who understand me.
Toby & Lucy
Meet Toby & Lucy, two 11 month old rabbits. Toby is a neutered male, English Spot and Lucy is a spayed female, tri-coloured standard X. They are confident bunnies and love exploring outside.
