Tic & Tac
Hi, we are brothers called Tic & Tac and we are 2 years old. We are Russian white cats. We came to Raystede due to our owners ill health and was no longer able to look after us. We are looking for a home together. I am quite a nervous boy and will take a little time to get to know, my brother Tac is much more confident and enjoys fuss and attention. Once bonded with an owner, we are both very loving. We would probably be best in an adult only home without other pets and no children. We do enjoy going outside so we would need a garden please. Can you offer us a loving, forever home please? Love Tic & Tac x
I’m Mr Kip, a wonderful chunky male staffie 1 year of age. I love making friends with everyone, I like other dogs and am awaiting a cat test. I could live Confident older children. I’m handsome and lovable and will make you smile.
Hello my name is Ernie and I am an 8 year old large cross breed. I’m looking for a new home where I can have lots of affection and fuss. I like other dogs and could possibly live with one if we were a good match, any resident children need to be older and used to living with a dog. I’m learning to walk nicely in a halti but will want to have a good run around in a secure area. I am currently in a foster home taking a break from kennels, if you would like to me meet I would be happy to come along to see you. Here is what my foster carers have to say..... "Since he has been with us he has been a perfect gentleman, he does as he is told such as sit, stay, leave, off and calm? He walks very well on the lead. He is very sociable but gentle at the same time when he meets other dogs in the park, even when he see’s a cat, rabbit or squirrel he responds to Ernie leave and will walk on. We have not yet walked him off the lead because he is not ours. He loves his food and at present we feed him separately from our dog as she will try and dive in and eat the lot, he does not really understand biscuits or chews but is slowly getting used to them. We hope this information helps to give someone that may be interested in adopting him some idea into the soft nature that Ernie has."
Hello my name is Frank and I am a 12 year old gentle lurcher. I am a very loving and affectionate dog. I like other dogs and could live with older calm children, who would know how to treat me with kindness and respect. I would like a home that would give me steady shorter regular exercise rather than longer walks. I would like a quieter and loving home please.
Long Stay Cats
We are still desperately seeking homes for three of our long stay cats. Can you help and offer any of them a forever, loving home? Penny, a 4 year old female has been waiting for a new home since the end of January! Penny was quite aggressive when she came to us but her temperament has vastly improved but she does take time to bond with new people so she will need patience and understanding. Once she trusts you, she will sit happily on your lap and loves a fuss. Penny ideally needs an adult only home though she could potentially live with teenage children. No other pets as she does not like cats or dogs. She does need a garden. Penny will need a settling in period and be allowed to hide if she wishes and come to you when she is ready. A lovely cat underneath all that fear that she can sometimes show. Molly, a 9 year old female who has been here since April. A very gentle soul but very nervous and will take time to settle but she is not aggressive and never bites or scratches. She is just a timid girl who has had a bad past. She does like a fuss once she knows you and her favourite times of day are meal times! She would benefit from a garden but she is unlikely to venture very far. She does need to be the only pet in an adult only home. Molly just needs some TLC and patience. A very sweet girl. Tabitha, 15 year old female who just wants a quiet life and somewhere nice to curl up and sleep. She has been waiting for a new home since April. Tabitha is a very healthy girl for her age. She does enjoy a fuss but does sometimes give you a swipe with her paw if she has had enough. But generally, Tabitha is a sweet girl who deserves a loving home in her twilight years. She only has a stump for a tail so she is quite distinctive and very pretty. She would make a nice companion for a retired person(s) or someone who works from home. Teenage children would possibly be ok but a quiet adult home with no other pets would suit her best. A garden would be great as she does still like to go outside but she is unlikely to venture far so the garden does not need to be huge. If you think you can offer any of these cats a new home, please speak to the cattery team or if you would like any further information about them. Please also see their main website feature for photos and information. Thank you.
I’m Toby, a cheeky 2 year old male Terrier mix. I’ll need an experienced, terrier loving home please! I love to play and go for adventures but do need general training. I am not so keen on other dogs or cats and need an adult only home.
I’m Zena, a nervous 5 year old female Husky. I’m looking for a gentle, patient home that will be able to provide me with a secure environment. Potential owners should research my breed type, I’ll need an active home and like to be involved and kept busy! I need some training around other dogs and could live with calm older children but no cats please!!
Hi, my name is Penny and I am 4 years old. I have been at Raystede a little while awaiting a new home and I wanted to update you on my progress. When I arrived, I was very unpredictable, likely down to the frustration on having been an indoor cat and I was signed over because of my behaviour. I have come on a long way since I arrived and I have become extremely fond of the cattery team leader. I love to sit on her lap and I love her to stroke me and I even purr now whilst kissing her hands. Unfortunately, she has two cats and cannot have me as I really do not like other cats. Ideally, I need a home with an experienced cat owner as it may take me a little time to bond with a new person so I need someone who understands me and knows when to leave me alone. Once I feel safe and secure, I am very loving. I love to go outside in the run I have here, so I do need a garden please. I would not suit a home with children unless perhaps they were older and very sensible. I don't think I would like to share my home with a dog. Although I may take time to adjust to a new home, I have huge potential to be a very loving girl as it has been proven since my stay here. Please come and meet me and give me a chance. Love Penny x
My name is Red and I am an active, attentive and inquisitive 2 year old male Husky. I was rescued from appalling conditions at a puppy farm, confined and unused to human contact. I have been undergoing extensive rehabilitation and though still nervous I am ready to start the process of finding a family to call my own. I will need experienced, patient and very committed people to continue to show me the kindness I need and support my development. I would benefit from living with other dogs but not cats and children would be considered if older. I will have specific needs from a home environment and the ability of the family to continue my rehabilitation. Please research my breed type’s character too.
Hi, my name is Molly and I am 9 years old. I came to Raystede as I was very unhappy living with children. I originally came from the RSPCA and I have had a very troubled background. Raystede did find me a home but I have been returned as they felt that I was very unhappy and not settling in very well. I am looking for a quiet adult only home and I will need lots patience and understanding to help me settle due to my past. I can overgroom when I am stressed so I need lots of love and TLC to help me settle in my new home. I do need to be the only pet please. I have always been an indoor cat but ideally it would be nice if I could have access to a small garden if possible. When I am feeling happier and settled, I do like to sit on your lap for a fuss. Can you offer me a loving, forever home please? Love Molly x
I’m Milton, a bouncy 18 months old male Labrador X (big). I’ve got boundless energy but am really clever and love to learn too. I need an active home, lots of running and play please! I’m very friendly but boisterous and need guidance to learn to behave sometimes! I’m looking for an adult only, experienced home where I will be the only pet.
