Animal Sanctuary

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.

AmazonSmile is a website operated by Amazon with the same products, prices, and shopping features as

The difference is that when you shop on AmazonSmile, the AmazonSmile Foundation will donate 0.5% of the purchase price of eligible products to the charitable organization of your choice.

It's easy. Go to sign in and nominate
Anim-Mates as your charity.

Outreach programme

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.  

PETS AT HOME has a free VIP club card for their customers. You can pick one up at any Pets at Home store or online From here.

Every time your club card is swiped at the till Anim-Mates can benefit - as long as you nominate us as your chosen charity.

Rescued kittens and cats are lovingly cared for in foster homes

Our latest Newsletter

Petite Onyx is in our care after straying. He is about 2 years old and is super friendly.  

Merlin is very much a people cat but not keen on young children or dogs. He also hasn’t got on with other cats very well after his partner cat died 5 years ago.

Sadly, his owners are now moving away and their son has recently been found to be allergic to cats. They feel a new home would be beneficial for Merlin so he can hopefully come off his medication fairly rapidly.

Merlin will need a loving, calm and stable home without other pets or young children. It would be ideal if his new owners were able to spend a lot of time with him.

Merlin who has just tuned 10 years of age, has had regular checks at the vets and is in good health.

He is neutered, microchipped and up to date with vaccinations, flea and worm treatments.
