Midnight is a little black rabbit who is just under a year old. He is looking for an experienced home as he has not had a good time so far and needs to be handled very patiently.

Midnight has never set foot on a blade of grass so his new home must be able to provide a safe and secure area where he can run about, graze and just do bunny things.

Shandy and Sherry

In need of a special home are two female tabbies, Shandy is only about 12 months old and is possibly the mother of Sherry who is about 6 months old.

They were living rough together so are very nervous of people, especially Sherry, Shandy is a little more confident.

They were not in good condition, poor Shandy had a very bad eye infection which was too far gone to be treated and she had to have her eye removed, because of this she will need to go to an area practically free from traffic and to be kept indoors at critical times, eg overnight, as she will be at a disadvantage.

Both girls will need a long time indoors to start with to make sure they are happy and settled, they will need a very quiet home, no other pets or children, so they can concentrate on getting to know you with no distractions.

Shandy and Sherry will need people who are kind and patient and totally committed to giving them a happy life.


Benson is a handsome grey and white neutered boy who is about four and a half years old. He has had a tough life so does have some trust issues, he can be a friendly boy who loves to be fussed but if he gets worried he can try to scratch you so he needs to be the only pet and he is also not suitable to be homed with children.

Benson needs a quiet home where he can get the time he needs to settle and become secure in his environment, this may take a while so it is important he is treated with patience, understanding and kindness. There is also always the chance Benson may have this quirk for life, where neglect/abuse has occurred it's hard to be certain on anything, and if that is the case then it is also important that he is accepted for what he is and loved just the same.

Bonnie and Benny

Bonnie and Benny are brother and sister and are about 4 years old, they would obviously love to stay together. They are a loving and affectionate pair who would benefit from being the only pets. Bonnie and Benny need to live in a quiet area away from busy roads, they are not used to young children.


Midnight is 12 months old and is looking for a quiet loving home with no children.

This poor little boy has been subject to constant abuse for a long time, he is friendly but has not been left unscathed, he becomes very distressed if he is picked up, he can be smoothed and fussed over but cuddles will have to wait until he trusts you.


Thelma is about 18 months old and was abandoned when her owners moved. Once you get to know Thelma she is friendly but her past has made her very shy and she will take a take a little time to become the loving little girl her foster mum knows.

Thelma will need a quiet home where she can get used to her new situation slowly and eventually blossom and start enjoying her new life.
