This gorgeous couple, Nacho and Apricot, are looking for a home together. They were found abandoned with a few other guinea pigs and these two have a particularly strong bond. Understandably, they were very frightened when they first arrived at our Hertfordshire rehoming centre.

We want to say a huge THANK YOU! You may remember during a severe storm back in November, our Torbay rehoming centre cattery was damaged when a tree fell on it, terrifying the poor cats (and us). Thankfully, our cats and team were all safe and sound, but our cat pens were crushed.

After 149 days of searching for the right home we finally waved her off with her new family and best doggy pal Misty over the weekend. Good...

The two-year-old cat was so poorly that he was rushed straight into emergency theatre where our vets discovered he had a badly blocked bladder. It was touch and go for many days for Puglington, but with round-the-clock care from our veterinary team – and...
