Re-homing Animals Over The Christmas Period

The RSPCA has issued the following policy with reference to re-homing animals over the Christmas period.

As we rely on a network of volunteers to conduct our home visits, we often find that the speed with which we can get the home visits done slows down, as the demands of Christmas affect our volunteers too. Because of this, it may take a little longer for your adoption to be processed and we appreciate your patience.

Christmas is a busy and hectic time for most households. Unusual noise and activities, extra demands upon the new owners` time and the difficulties an animal may face when settling into a new home. Experience tells us it could end in tears, so we may not release new adoptions to homes before Christmas if it is best for all concerned.

However, we do understand that for some people the festive period is a calm, quiet time and every adoption is dealt with on an individual basis.

We urge everyone thinking of adopting a pet at Christmas to consider the long term commitment required to properly care for an animal. People should take into account whether they have the time and money to care for an animal 365 days of the year for the next 10 -20 years. Factors to consider include daily grooming, feeding, exercise and ongoing costs such as vet bills and registration fees.

If you are confident that a pet is the right addition to your home the RSPCA recommends visiting a rescue centre with all the family so they can pick out the pet which will be best suited to their particular life style. Pets are a lifelong commitment. Consider carefully before adopting a pet to ensure that this pet will be loved for life.

Black and white DSH female, 10 years old. Chiana is a sweet gentle lady who will happily curl up all day and not get herself noticed. She doesn't like the hustle and bustle of the cattery, so would love a quiet household to call home again. She has been well loved and cared for but due to circumstances her owner had to move to a nursing home. She is a sensitive little cat who takes a little time to trust but in the right home she will be a devoted companion.
Lilac Tortie DSH female, 5 years approx.Tallulah is a very sweet nature girl with a heart of gold. She is gentle and quiet and loves a fuss. She is however a little wary of new surroundings, but given time will settle with an older family and become a central part of the house. She finds herself with us as after being picked up as a stray, so she will appreciate the love and security a new home will bring.
Black DSH female, 7 1/2 years old.Sasha is a beauty with a sensitive nature. Although she finds new situations a bit daunting, she soon settles down to become a loving and affectionate little lady. She is looking for a fresh start with a nurturing owner or older family. In return, she will be a faithful friend and a joy to have in your home.
