animal welfare

Working hands-on with pet owners to support and facilitate animal welfare to keep pets in homes where they are able to live a good quality of life.

promoting responsible animal ownership

Our outreach programme accepts referrals from our local RSPCA inspectorate team to collect, trap and transport animals in need within our branch geographical area. Our Animal Welfare Officer works hands-on with pet owners to support and facilitate practical ways for animal welfare to be improved, and to keep pets in homes where they are able to live a good quality of life.

Mount Noddy Animal Centre operates a ‘Working Cats Scheme’ as part of the Outreach Programme, trapping and neutering feral cats and where it is not in their best interests to be returned to the cat colony, they are rehomed as Working Cats on farms and stable yards where outdoor shelter and food is provided.  

Our Animal Welfare Officers work closely with external agencies such as other charities, Social Services, the Police, Animal Wardens and in the community to promote responsible animal ownership.

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.

We got our rescue cat, melon from here last year and she’s amazing. It’s an amazing charity and they should be proud with what they do and achieve.
