ADOPT AN ANIMAL
Adopt an Animal
The end goal of our work in rescuing and treating street animals is the day when they will finally be able to return to their communities and continue life free from disease and discomfort. For many, this is the life that they know, and captivity is intolerable for them.
However, some of the dogs and cats we rescue will never be able to fend for themselves on the streets again. This may be due to their disabilities – for example if they lost a leg, while others receive treatment at KAT Centre for so long that they become dependent on people and forget the survival skills that they once knew.
These animals remain with us until they are able to be adopted.
“Adoptions are crucial to our work as they enable us to continue taking in new rescues.”
Save an animal’s life and have a new best friend – for free!
Adopting an animal is one of the most rewarding things that you can do. The feeling of doing a good deed and the love that you will receive from your new friend can really change your life. You will have a new and loyal member of your family that will be with you through the good times and the bad.
Some of the benefits of adoption are:
We spay, neuter and vaccinate the animals that come into our care. This saves you a lot of money because you don’t have to pay for the procedures yourself and it ensures the pet you are taking home is healthy. Furthermore, all dogs and cats adopted from KAT Centre are entitled to free basic health checks up to one year after the date of adoption.
Change a life
By adopting from us, you will be providing an animal with the second chance they deserve. Many have been rescued from horrific circumstances such as cruelty, neglect and abandonment. By re-homing a pet you can give an animal that has lived a hard life on the streets a loving, stable home.
It is said that animals know when they have been rescued, so the bond between you and your re-homed pet will be especially strong. A pet is a companion that will never judge you, will love you regardless of whatever happens and will always be there. As well as making you feel great, their unconditional love raises your self-esteem because of the affection they show you.
Fight puppy farms
Puppy farming is the immoral practice of breeding puppies for the sole purpose of maximizing profit, without any regard to the dog’s health or well-being. Dogs at puppy farms are forced to breed many times and they are often kept in terrible conditions without basic necessities. People who run these places do not care about producing healthy dogs, and they often have diseases and disabilities. The dogs usually don’t receive any veterinary care. Adopting from us helps to stop animals from being subjected to this horrific treatment because rather than funding these businesses you will be re-homing a pet from somewhere reputable that supports animal welfare.
The following dogs all live with us long term because they cannot safely be released (for their own protection) and have not been fortunate enough to be adopted into a loving home.
We care for them while waiting for the day that someone will come and give them a new life away from the hustle and bustle of KAT Centre. Some of them are disabled and others have suffered hard lives on the streets and need plenty of care and affection.
All of the dogs listed below are gentle and have not been known to be aggressive towards humans at any time. They all have their own story and their own personalities and are waiting here for you to come and meet them.
As an organisation dedicated to animal welfare we want to ensure that before adopting, you are sure that you can care for your new pet.
Dogs and cats can live for up to 15 years of age and it is very important to think carefully before making a commitment.
We ask interested persons to fill in an ownership contract and to confirm that you are ready, willing and able to provide for all of their needs, in sickness and in health.
Please feel free to contact us for more information.
