If you’re looking for a fluffy friend to join your family, a kitten can be a lovely addition to your home. Being clean, easy to train and independent, they can complement even the busiest lifestyle as long as they get the attention, the food and the love they crave.
Where to buy kittens
There are various places around Bournemouth where you may be able to adopt your perfect pedigree or charming moggy. These outlets include charity pet shops run by animal rescue charities, where you can usually find a wide range of rescue kittens for sale; and normal pet shops which are often independently owned family businesses that sometimes sell rescue kittens too.
Animal Rescue Charities
If you want to rescue a cat or kitten, why not pop on down to Cats Protection to meet some of its resident felines looking for an adoptive home? There are plenty of pets of all ages in their care looking for a forever home and they also have a direct homing noticeboard where people can privately list animals for rehoming.
Waggy Tails Rescue
More widely known for dogs and puppies, Waggy Tails Rescue also matches rescue cats and kittens with new families so keep in touch with them in case they have your perfect cat in their care.
Margaret Green Animal Rescue
Established in 1965, this charity takes in pets who have become homeless for a variety of reasons – perhaps through neglect, through their owner’s poor health, a house move or they’ve become stray. Margaret Green Animal Rescue cares for 1200 animas every year in three centres covering Dorset (Church Knowle on the Isle of Purbeck and Lincoln Farm between Blandford and Bere Regis) plus a third venue in Devon.
Pound Kitten Rescue
You’ve heard of Pound Puppy Animal Rescue, right? Well Pound Kitten works to rehome kittens across Dorset who are for whatever reason homeless. Many of the cats are in foster homes across Bournemouth, Poole and Christchurch while a new home is found but many of the kittens are in the pound and waiting to win over your heart.
Other Pet Shops
It may not be a common thing, but some of the local pet shops have kittens for sale from time to time – whether sourced from a known breeder or rescued.
