It costs over £700,000 a year to operate Mount Noddy Animal Centre. When you adopt a cat or dog, we ask you to pay a donation towards the cost of your pet’s care and veterinary treatment during their stay with us. Find out more

going that extra mile…
Whilst all our animals need tender loving care (TLC), some require that little bit of extra TLC and need adopters willing to go that extra mile when they open their homes and hearts.
opening your home and heart
We have an open intake policy which means we do not refuse an animal due to its age, medical needs or other circumstances. When we rescue a cat or dog, we often do not know their history and many, especially dogs, have complex needs including behavioural issues or health conditions. Sadly, many of them have not had a good start to life and have been neglected, cruelly treated or simply no longer wanted. Others may be older animals needing a loving home to peacefully spend their remaining years.
Whilst all our animals need tender loving care (TLC), some require that little bit of extra TLC and need adopters willing to go that extra mile when they open their homes and hearts. Our behaviourist and vet nurse will discuss animals with you that need that little bit of extra TLC so that you are fully aware of the commitment you are taking on when you adopt them. If you feel you can provide that support please tick the TLC box on the perfect match form for a cat or dog.
Frequently asked questions
We have an open intake policy and take on cats and dogs from various backgrounds, each with their own behavioural and medical history. Dependent on the nature of how they come into our care, sometimes we don’t receive any information about them at all. All our animals are assessed on arrival and have ongoing assessments throughout their stay to help us find them the best home, where they can feel safe and happy, with a family suited to their personality, history and requirements. The animal may have a history of being unable to cope living with children or known behavioural issues that make them unsuitable to be rehomed with them and limited background information means we cannot safely test this. These decisions are made with the animals welfare and the safety of adopters as a priority.
When you take your new pet home, that’s not the end of the journey for us. Along with four weeks’ free pet insurance from PetPlan (terms and conditions apply), our animal care team will be on hand to help you settle your new pet in. Occasionally, once rehomed things don’t work out or an adopter’s circumstances change, if this does happen, we guarantee to take our animals back.
