Help us help animals in need.

Many of the animals in our care have either been abandoned, rescued or rehomed – often through no fault of their own. There are more than triple the number of animals needing rescuing, fostering, and rehoming, and being kitten season, this includes vulnerable young mother cats and their kittens.  But, once they arrive at OAAT they will be warm, cared for, and get bundles of love from their foster families while they wait for their forever homes.

Precious was found abandoned in a factory estate. She was microchipped – which is normally great. It means it’s possible to reunite a pet with their family. But when her family were contacted by the vets and rangers they either hung up the phone or said they would call back (but never did). It makes no sense – because she’s a sweet girl. She’s been in foster care for a few weeks now and is super smoochy.  Being 8 years old, she’s way past the curious kitten phase and is happy to laze in the sun or nap on the couch.  She would make the perfect pet for a family or single person looking for a companion who is just happy to just chill alongside them.

One at a Time (OAAT) rescues, rehabilitates and re-homes hundreds of animals every year.  As part of this process, all animals spend time in foster care where their carer gets to know the animal’s temperament, personality, and energy levels. If you feel a bit listed might be a good fit for your lifestyle, family, future plans and finances, please apply below.  Every application will be considered, and those most suitable will be contacted for a short phone chat, followed by a meet and greet, and then a home check.  We want to be sure it’s not just a match – but the perfect match!
