Happy Endings



Here are stories about some of our animals that have found new loving homes after a bad start in life or have lost their previous homes due to unforeseen circumstances.


If you have adopted one of our animals, whether it’s a dog, cat, rabbit, guinea pig, rat, mouse, gerbil or hamster, please do share their happy ending stories with us.


Send a photo with the story of where your animal came from (if known) and about it’s new life and we will add it to the list below.

PS Whilst we love stories about our cats and dogs, come on you small animal keepers, we want to hear from you too!!!!
