Successfully rehomed by Animal Samaritans

 Angel, a 12 week old Shih tzu  came in to us a few days ago. As soon as we got her out of the car she was spotted one of our neighbours. She fell in love with her instantly and offered her a forever home. After the necessary home checks, we were more than happy to rehome her to to this wonderful lady.

Tango, a 11month old Crossbreed was staying with one of our amazing fosterers for a while. Tango was then offered a forever home with someone who had kindly taken another Animal Samaritan's dog, D.J. Tango now lives happily with DJ.

Beautiful Cassie has now found a loving new home.  

Bella and Lizzie have been with us for a while. They have shown little interest in anyone who wanted to adopt them, indeed they are quite wary of strangers. As they have made it quite clear that they want to stay with their foster family we have decided to leave them there. Despite still being a bit timid they are much loved and very contented cats.

 Eclipse  Successfully rehomed by Animal Samaritans

UPDATE FROM NEW OWNER
"I wanted to send this email to say a huge thank you for allowing me to re-home another of your beautiful cats - Eclipse (formerly Jessie).
He's had so much change to get used to in such a short space of time (a little over a week) but he's excelled at all the new changes he's faced. 

Despite never living in a home with a dog, yet alone 2, within a week, he's laid next to them when we've all had our nightly cuddles, he's even taken it upon himself to cuddle up to Jinx (formerly Smudge) our other rescued cat. Although at times she can be a grump :-(

He's taken to his new bed and collar well and enjoyed waking me up at all hours calling for a cuddle or performing aerobics on the windowsill which is all funny stuff!  Thank you once again for the dedication you show to rescue these poor cats who want nothing but a clean and safe home, sadly many of which have never experienced. Every time I have spoken to Bill and Sarah they've been nothing but helpful and polite.
I shall be sure to recommend you to my friends and family and will be a regular adoptee of cats in future from A.S." 
 
Jinxy
Successfully rehomed by Animal Samaritans

Young Jinxy had a few problems with children in her previous home but now she has found a home with a nice lady, where there are no children or other cats. Jinxy can now get peace and quiet whenever she wants it and plenty of TLC too  

When 9 month old Micky came to us he was timid and scared. He had been found as a stray and brought to us. A proper diet and lots of TLC soon sorted him out and he became a happy and playful little boy. Now Micky has gone to live with the family of Oscar, another of our rescue cats whose own success story can be found further down this page.

Dave
 Successfully rehomed by Animal Samaritans

A nice couple had lost one of their cats and the remaining one was rather distressed without a companion. They chose Dave to live with them and he has proven to be great success. He was an instant hit with the couple and the older cat is slowly getting used to him

Our Charlie was proving a bit particular when it came to choosing a new home. He is a big boy who likes lots of fuss and attention. He has now chosen to live with a lady who will make sure he gets plenty of both and Charlie now keeps a close eye on her just to make sure things are done to his satisfaction

Lola was a challenging little pup. Sadly, her previous owners had given us the wrong information about her,  which we only discovered when she was finally given to our fosterer for assesment. She was frightened of men, going out for walks and other dogs. She has a lot of issues and after careful assessment, we felt a little more work should be done with rehabilitation and to prepare her for her new home.
We are happy to say she has now gone to a very special new home, who are willing to spend the time with her and have the experience to be able to care for Lola.

It is often difficult to make guarantees with rescue animals and we are especially thankful when people like Lola's new owners come along to offer forever homes to these special and fragile little animals.

Kiki, our three legged tabby girl, has been adopted by Izabella and her family. She has won the hearts of everyone even the incumbent ginger tom. We wondered if Kiki would be able to manage the stairs but she does so extremely well. Our special thanks must go to Izabella, as not everyone is prepared to take on a disabled pet.

Kimmy came into our care when she was about 20 weeks old. Now she has found a forever home with a lovely family. She has children to play with and she gets lots of cuddles from everyone. Even the families existing cat has taken to her. 

Simba is a really lucky boy.  He came into our care as an unwanted pet and only two days later Emma contacted us looking for a young black tom. It was a real case of love at first sight for both of them. When Simba was taken to Emma's house he behaved as though he had lived there all his live. A really happy, and speedy, outcome.

We wish them well.

 Skittles
 Successfully rehomed by Animal Samaritans

Skittles was a bit timid when she came to us. Her previous owner had changed jobs and Skittles was on her own for far too long. A nice lot of TLC soon made her a happy cat again and now she has a forever home with a lovely family who will spoil her lots.

Youngster JoJo came to us at about 10 weeks old, before that she had not had any human contact. This made her very timid. She improved greatly during her time with us but still lacked confidence with people. But now she has a forever home with a couple who understand her problems and have the time and patience to gradually turn her into a loving and affectionate cat.
 JoJo


UPDATE ON JOJO -  sent from new owner...

"Thought you should see JoJo, now Eowyn, who has settled in since her adoption in September last year. Thank you for looking out for the animals that deserve so much more in life.

Little Eowyn has really come out of her shell. She still isn't fond of strangers but it doesn't take her long to come round. She loves her laser pen and her love affair with Garfield, our tom, is just adorable. She's found her home here and seems quite content. I have never had a cat that walks around with her tail held so high before."

Cassie came to us after giving birth to four kittens in a back garden. We collected them all only a couple of hours after the birth. It was quite worrying at first but Cassie was a good mum and the journey did not stress her too much. She made a tremendous job of rearing the kittens and, once they were old enough, they were soon re-homed. Cassie herself was given a bit of R&R and then she was neutered.

Being a very friendly and affectionate cat Cassie has now got a lovely new home with a family who love her to bits and are treating her royally.

Sooty

Sooty is only a young cat but something in her life had made her rather withdrawn and timid. Happily she has now been adopted by a lady who has the time and patience to work with her. We are confident that with time and lots of TLC Sooty will come out of her shell and be a marvellous happy little cat.

Here is a great picture of Greta's boy Jasper (now known as Wilf!) and his best buddy Eddie the Parson Russell. They now live with John and are having a fab time playing together. All of Greta kittens have been bought up with the Animal Samaritan volunteer's dogs so they are very used to them

Max
 
Animal Samaritan help in many ways..

We were contacted by Jonathan, Max’s owner just after they had been through one of the most traumatic events a dog owner can ever experience.

At the beginning of July, Jonathan had taken his three Yorkies for an early morning walk.  All three of them were well controlled on leads when out of know where came a large Bull Mastiff.  The Bull Mastiff took Max in his mouth and stated to maul him. The owner jumped on the dog and tried to help to prize poor little Max from his large jaws.  Eventually, they managed to release him, but Max was in a very bad way. He had been virtually ripped apart and Jonathan though he was dead. He then notices Max was still breathing and  with the help of a passer-by, Max was quickly taken to a local vets. The prognosis was not good. They gave him less than a 5% survival chance and suggested putting Max to sleep.  The owner refused and wanted to try and save Max. We were contacted by Jonathan as the vet bill was very high, but he was desperate to save his beloved little friend. Sadly,he was struggling to find all the funds so The Animal Samaritans stepped in and helped to pay part of the bill. After a long operation and intensive care, we are over the moon to tell you that Max survived.  Max has now made a very good recovery, his owner has him back home with his friends and he is enjoying walks again.

Roxie

Roxie was not a happy girl when she came to us. Her owners had two adult dogs, which wasn't too bad, but when they got two puppies as well this proved too much for our Roxie. She became quite upset so her owners decided to give her up for adoption. Luckily we had room and took her in. After she settled in we  soon realized what a bright and affectionate little cat she was.  Roxie has now been adopted by a nice lady who is happy to give Roxie all the TLC she wants.  

Lucky was rehomed with a wonderful couple. Jill and her husband have welcomed Lucky as a new family member. We are pleased to report he is enjoying his new surroundings and has settled well.

Successfully rehomed by Animal Samaritans

Six year old Oscar came to us after his elderly owner had to be rushed to hospital. The next door neighbors were looking after him but when it became clear that his owner would have to go into care they contacted us. We found Oscar to be quite a laid back sort of chap, very easygoing and very affectionate.  Oscar has now gone to live in an adult only home and he has settled in really well, once everyone realized who was in charge!

Smudge came into rescue because her owners had to move and could not take her with them. She soon settled in and we found her to be an affectionate and even tempered cat.

We were contacted by Donna, who wanted a cat who would get on with her two dogs. Smudge had once lived with a dog so we decided to give her a try. After the home check we took Smudge along to meet Donna and her two dogs. Donna took to Smudge straight away and we worked out a plan to introduce Smudge to the dogs gradually over a period. But Smudge and the dogs could not be bothered with all that and by the end of day two Smudge had settled into the middle of the dogs bed leaving them squashed up at either end!

Smudge has since been renamed Jinx and we have been told by Donna that She's settling in very well. Over the past few days she's started to come down stairs as she predominantly likes to sleep all day on my bed. She's shown no inclination to go outside which I actually quite like as it gets dark so early. She's adorable around the dogs and they enjoy her company - she even gets in their bed.

Mandy
 

Successfully rehomed by Animal Samaritans

Mandy came to us with a litter of four very young kittens. Given her age this was probably the last of four or five litters. Mandy and kittens needed about six weeks in our nursery unit and with care and a good diet they all thrived.

After the kittens were weaned Mandy was neutered and soon adopted by Michael from Dartford. She has settled in and has made a very loving and affectionate pet with many happy, and kitten free, years in front of her.

Kada was one of a pair of cats who came to us via social services. Her owner had been taken into care and the cats had to be found new homes. Kada was timid and subdued by the other cat who was very dominant. After the two were separated Kada gradually came out of her shell. She is a little bit shy of strangers but when she gets to know you she is quite affectionate. We found Kada a lovely home with a lady whose house backs onto fields and Kada now spends many happy hours chasing insects and playing in the grass. But she is always happy to come indoors for her tea and a nice cuddle before bedtime.

Animal Samaritan help in many ways.. 

Breeze and Hope were rescued from a concrete shed, starving and in a terrible condition. With the love and help of many volunteers they were transported to kennelling faciliites and then on to foster homes. They were retrained and rehabilitated, as they had no social skills and were extremely nervous. This extensive training and rehabilitation was paid for by the kind donations you make. 
We are happy to report that they are both in forever homes, enjoying life to the full...Just as these beautiful dogs deserve.
