At the Anim-Mates private sanctuary in Ash, Kent, we care for 100+ animals who are all permanent residents. There are cats, dogs, rabbits, goats, sheep, poultry and ponies. Most are elderly, infirm or have special care needs. Like any charity, we can only carry on our much-needed work with public support, through donations and voluntary help.
Rescued animals, including cats, rabbits and guinea pigs, are cared for in the homes of fosterers, while we seek new owners for them. To help decrease the feral cat population in the Medway area, we trap the cats, have them neutered and then return them to their colony. Very young feral kittens are often domesticated by our fosterers and then found homes.
