To celebrate World Spay Day 2016 both of our London veterinary clinics are holding a FREE cat neutering day! 

85% of litters of kittens are the result of unplanned accidental matings -  female kittens can become pregnant at just 4 months old which is a surprise to many cat owners!

Protect your kitten from an unplanned litter by getting her spayed. She will be healthier and happier too.

We are neutering both female and male cats and kittens for free on the day so if you are on benefits or a low income please take advantage of this special offer.

To book an appointment please phone whichever of our clinics is closest to you.

So, if you live nearby and are interested in getting involved please do come along and say hello!

If you are unable to make it on Sunday but would still like to volunteer with us, please contact our Sanctuary team on 01424 882198 or by email This email address is being protected from spambots. You need JavaScript enabled to view it. - we would love to hear from you!

Thank you so much to everyone who supported our Greenacres Sanctuary Summer Open Day!

Thank you to everyone who supported the open day at our Greenacres rescue and rehoming centre on Sunday 16th August.
Although the weather was a little drizzly, a great day was had and most of the cats enjoyed meeting visitors, especially those arriving with Dreamies cat treats! Pictured is Claire, one of our normally more timid resident cats, however, she couldn't resist a peek at the prizes on offer in our Teddy Tombola!
The final fundraising total raised on the day was just over £2000 which is amazing. Thank you all!


Come and see our rescued cats and kittens at our Weekend Open Days!

What better way to spend a few hours than meeting some of our adorable rescued cats and kittens? Two of our centres are open to potential adopters every weekend – so if you are interested in welcoming a new pet (or two) into your home, please do come and see us!

Our friendly and knowledgeable staff and volunteers will be on hand to talk you through the adoption process, and introduce you to some of our lovely cats and kittens!

We have all sorts of cats needing homes – from pairs of kittens to elderly cats; cats needing homes with gardens and cats suitable for indoor-only homes; single cats, pairs or trios; and (not forgetting) feral and semi-feral cats who are seeking suitable outdoor homes.

With kitten season well and truly underway, we are also caring for lots of young mothers and their newborn litters, who have been rescued from gardens, under decking, in sheds, and even hiding under rubble. They are being given lots of attention by the staff and volunteers at our centres and foster homes to get them used to human contact, and many mothers and kittens are ready to be welcomed into their forever homes right now.

All of our cats are neutered, vaccinated and microchipped, and undergo a complete health check before being homed – so you can adopt from us with full peace of mind.

The hundreds of cats and kittens waiting for new homes at our rescue centres come from all walks of life, and are a real mix of ages, looks and personalities. The one thing that they have in common, however, is that they all really deserve the chance to live a happy life in a home of their own.

Our Open Days are held at:

Greenacres Rehoming Centre & Sanctuary (Stubb Lane, Brede, Near Hastings, TN31 6BT) - open Saturday and Sunday, from 1pm-4.30pm
Lewisham Rescue Centre (233-235 Lewisham Way, London, SE4 1UY) - open Saturday and Sunday, from 1pm-5pm

We can’t wait to see you there!

*Please note that our Canning Town homing centre is currently open by appointment only.*
