 Below are a list of the many of our animals we  have as permanent

members of the Wonky Pets Rescue Centre based at Swadlincote

Our Forever Animals

This album below is dedicated to those animals who have found a lifetime of sanctuary with the rescue. This could be for a variety of reasons, some have medical issues, others some behavioural problems brought on from past trauma and abuse, some are extremely elderly and just need a safe place to spend their retirement years.

Mickey is going to be staying with us as a permanent foster dog supported by the rescue. He has some fairly advanced dementia and to save upsetting him by another move he is safe and loved in his foster home. 
Mickey was saved from being PTS by his owners after he became an inconvenience to them because he is elderly, deaf and a little bit wobbly on his feet. This lovely old man has come into a fantastic foster home of ours who specialises in providing excellent care for these little oldies, he will get everything he needs now to make sure he is kept comfortable and happy.

So naughty Henry cocker has become a permanent resident here, he has been here since Feb 21 after arriving with a pretty impressive bite history and threats of being put to sleep by not only one but 3 different people. He has never bitten here but an attempt to rehome him didnt go well and we feel its in everyones interest including Henry's for him to stay where he feels safe.

Dave is an 8yr old Russian Black Terrior who came in as a stray would you believe, we think he was dumped  by his owners as he has a few health issues that need ongoing support so he is remaining with us in a very experienced permanent foster home with us paying his medical bills.

Elvis was rehomed by us 5yrs ago when he was just a piglet, sadly his owner is moving and cant take Elvis with her so he is coming back to join our resident animals to live here at the rescue.

Welcome back Elvis, I’m sure you will soon settle in with the gang.

Ted (grey) and Mabel (brown) are our resident donkeys, Ted is around 15yrs old and Mabel is around 18yrs. They arrived several years ago and Mabel in particular was in a terrible state, underweight and with lots of hair loss. She was so shy and fearful especially of men and we fear she had been very harshly treated by a male in the past. 5yrs on and she is so much more confident but she still has to be sedated to have her hooves trimmed by the farrier, even though the farrier is a lady! They love treats of carrots and apples and get through lots of barley straw and hay as well as Donkey chaff in the winter months. You can buy them some feed on our amazon wishlist or if you would like to sponsor them by setting up a regular payment you can do so via paypal to wonkypetsrescue@hotmail.co.uk or via standing order to Wonky Pets Rescue Sort Code 206151 A/c 73300501  

Loui had been allowed to get away with some guarding behaviour as a pup and lacked having real boundaries and instead of tackling his issues when he first showed some concerns at 7 moths, his behaviour was allowed to escalate and he was mishandled in his original home. He is now safely with us as a Forever animal.

Lucie is a 2yr old pure tabby girl who is spayed, microchipped, flea and worm treated and has had her first vaccination.  Lucie was straying and took up residence with a lady along with 3 other cats after she started putting food out for them, it was far from an ideal situation though with the cats living outside so we were asked if we could help by providing a rescue space to bring them in from the cold.  Lucie is a sweet little cat who is finding coming into rescue a bit scary and stressful but given time and some patience she will blossom into a lovely little girl, there is no malice in her she is just shy.  Lucie would be best being homed with another feline we feel as she gets on well with other cats, she is wary of dogs and would be best in a home with older children over 6yrs as little ones might be a bit too much for her. She will need a home away from any busy roads where she can go outside once settled. Lucie is being fostered nr Swadlincote, Derbys but can be rehomed further afield to the right home subject to homecheck and donation. 
If you can offer this pretty youngster the forever home she needs please email us telling us all about your home offer and contact details to wonkypetsrescue@gmail.com 

 

Pricilla is one of our resident pigs, she arrived with us at Christmas 2020 as an emaciated mite ridden 10 month old, rescued by some friends of ours from living in a garden. Sadly her little sibling had already passed away before the rescuers got to them but Pricilla has blossomed into a beautiful healthy happy fat little piggy Safe forever here
