Rescue Stories

Most of our pets have come from seriously disadvantaged backgrounds and have frequently undergone rehabilitation and re-socialising activities at the 4Paws Animal Shelter.

A sincere “thank you” to everyone who has made a contribution to the well-being and rescue of these animals! You have certainly made a difference in this world! 


Hi, I’m Lando!  When I was rescued and taken to 4Paws Shelter, nobody expected me to survive.  I was so tiny and sick, but thanks to the loving care I received at the Shelter, I’m now a fat, happy kitten.

Hi I’m Mona,

I’m one of the puppies who was recently cared for by the 4Paws Animal Shelter.  In fact, I was featured on the front page along with all my siblings.  We were all rescued as tiny babies and fostered so well by the Shelter that we’ve all grown into beautiful, strong puppies.  I’ve just been adopted by a wonderful family and here’s a pic of me with my new bestie, going to my new home for the first time.  I’m sure I will have a terrific life ahead of me, all because I had such a great start at 4Paws.  Thanks to everyone who has made donations to the Shelter, allowing them to take such fantastic care of all of us!

Well now isn’t this the life! I have been adopted by an awesome family and I’m now living in the lap of luxury! Thanks to everyone at 4Paws who cared for me and my pals. Life just couldn’t get better!

It’s frequently difficult to rehome dogs of a certain age, as was the case with our beautiful girl Crystal. It takes a very special family to welcome an older dog into their home and we are deeply grateful to the awesome family who adopted our girl.

This is Jade – a blast from the past (adopted last year)- she came to the shelter about 4 years ago and we thought she would never find a home as she was so nervous – but there is a special home for all our furry friends.

Hi everyone!  I used to be Lassie (cos I’m a bit of a collie) but I’m now known as Nyx.  I love my new name, love my new family, love my new car and especially love my new collar and leash.  That means lots of walks.  Yay!  Thanks to the team at 4Paws Animal Shelter who were so devoted to my care and thanks to the public for helping to keep us well-fed and warm.

Hi I’m Baloo.  My new family is so awesome they even bought me a new scratching pole.  Here I am attempting to do my daily exercise before I take a nap in the sunshine.

Hi I’m Max,  Here I am at the Shelter but I’ve just been adopted by a wonderful family and can’t wait to start exploring.  Thanks to everyone who contributed to the awesome care I received at 4Paws.  I’m such a lucky guy.

Bella making up for lost time! I know my new owners love me so much already, but are so many blankets and toys necessary!  Thank you 4Paws, for taking such great care of me and finding me such a wonderful new home.

Prince and Jamie

Hi, we are Prince and Jamie.  We were siblings at the Shelter and now we’ve been lucky enough to be adopted together.  How cool is that!  Thanks to our new parents and a huge thank you for everyone who has donated to the Shelter and provided so well for us.

Hi I’m Julie,

Someone really kind has adopted me and here I am in my new garden.  I haven’t found my way around yet but I’m going to have such fun exploring.

Thanks to everyone who contributed their time and donations to keep 4Paws Animal Shelter thriving.  We wouldn’t be adopted into such wonderful homes with your support!

Batman left today to start his new life in a beautiful home with 2 very spoilt dogs and 3 very spoilt cats, and some very accommodating adults to play with and look after him.

Lion has luckily gone to a new home which he shares with another rescued pet.  Janice was so committed to having him, she paid for his eye operation.  He is now happily at home being entertained by his new friend and mother.
