HEARTRescued Animals Awaiting Homes Now

Call Gill on 0117 9535663 or email if you can offer homes for these animals

HEART was formed in 1996 and is based in the Bristol area.

Our aim is to find secure new homes for animals that have been abandoned or whose owners can no longer care for them. We help dogs, cats, rabbits, horses, goats and many other animals throughout the South West and South Wales. Find out more about HEART.

This is just a selection of the animals that are currently awaiting new homes and the situation is changing day by day. If you do not see the companion for you please contact us as we may have just what you’re looking for waiting to come in.

Indoor cats

Heart has a few indoor cats looking for caring and secure homes. They range from 6-8 years and have never been outside. The cats have been in a very quiet environment so would be happier if their new home was also quiet so no children or other pets. Indoor cats are a big responsibility because you have to always be aware of doors and windows and make sure they are shut or that the cats do not have access to them. If you have had or are thinking of having indoor cat or cats please get in touch.


Thelma is somewhere around 12 months old, she came in after being abandoned and was very scared. Thelma is very sweet and affectionate with her foster mum but is still shy around strangers. She is looking for a quiet, adult only, home where she can be given the time to settle and get to know her new surroundings and new people in her life, this could take a few weeks or even a couple of months but after this she will be such a loving girl.


Luna is 12 years old and was cruelly abandoned in her older years and left to fend for herself, poor thing was desperately trying to get into anyone's house to get out of the cold. She is a very sweet and pretty girl who is looking for a quiet home. Luna would make an ideal companion for an older person.


Buster is a very handsome 6 year old neutered boy, he is looking for a quiet home away from busy roads. Buster has an old injury to the base of his tail, it was at some time dislocated, it is too old for anything to be done and it does not seem to bother him but we would like to home him with adults only so he does not get pulled about by young children. He is a very friendly boy.


Fifi is about 8 years old and has spent a long time being a stray, befriended by ladies in a care home they sadly decided that it would be best if Fifi found her own home where she could be inside, warm and cosy.

Fifi is very sweet and would make a lovely companion for an older person.


Tanya is approx. 7/8 year old rotti mix, she is super friendly and having had a chequered life she is looking for a permanent, caring home where she can find the love she is so desperate for.

Tanya is a loving girl with a zest for life, she loves walks and food and cuddles. Her new home must have a secure garden and lots of time to make up for her years of being lonely. She would need to be the only pet and, as she is an older girl, no children.


Tara is a very affectionate 16 year old whose owner sadly had to go into care and Tara had to be left behind. She is looking for a quiet home, no other pets or children, where she can enjoy her twilight years, Tara is a healthy oap but if anything occurs we are happy to help with vet's care.


Joey is a handsome black and white 18 month old boy who has never had a caring home, he would love to find one now that is in a quiet area and as he can be a little shy it would be best if there were no children or other pets. Once settled in to his cosy new life he will be a good natured and affectionate boy.

Sadie & Ronnie

This lovely pair of older dogs have been in kennels for a year after sadly losing their owner. They have come up to Bristol to try and find their happy ever after. Sadie will be 10 years old in December and is the little staffie mix, Ronnie is 8 years old and is, of course, the slightly bigger cross breed.

Sadie & Ronnie have been together for years and are devoted to each other, we would like them to stay together if possible. Both are very loving and affectionate, good with other dogs, they have never lived with cats or children. Sadie and Ronnie are desperate to find themselves a new home with a secure garden where they will get the love and company they are missing so much.

Recently Rehomed


Holly is somewhere in the 4/5 year age range, she was left behind when her owners moved, left to fend for herself. She is understandably a little shy but when she gets to know you she is very affectionate, all her new home needs to do is give her time to settle and put her past behind her. Her new life must be spent in a quiet area and she would benefit from being the only pet with adults only.


Jack is about 18 months old, he is super affectionate but will be a little shy to start with. His new home must be in a quiet area away from busy roads he would also prefer no children.


Bear is approx 8 years old and a very sad Shar Pei X. We think he must have had a very hard life so far so it is about time he had some home comforts with people who love him. He is a gentle boy with a very affectionate nature, unfortunately there are signs he has known some ill treatment so we are determined that this boy will never suffer again and will find a home where he can put his past behind him.

Bear's new home must have a secure garden, no other pets and lots of company.
