PLEASE NOTE  --  Owing to the second wave of the coronavirus, the sanctuary will be closing and operating as we did during the first wave.  So, that means, all the cats we have at the sanctuary have been taken by our helpers/volunteers into their own homes until we are able to open again when we come out of lockdown.

We look forward to welcoming you back to these pages in the not too distant future when we hope to be able to offer sanctuary to the cats once again.

Stay safe and well everyone.

Most of our cats will have been vaccinated.

Kittens  have to be  8 weeks before we can start their vaccinations,  in which case the new owners are  expected to have this done


We have approximately 20 volunteers who work in teams of 4, one day a week.  Because of illness and holidays we often need to recruit additional volunteers.  We find active retired ladies fit into our team best, but we are willing to consider volunteers from all ages and genders.



Viewing at the sanctuary is strictly by APPOINTMENT ONLY and our opening/viewing days are Tuesday,  Thursday, Saturday and Sunday between 11am and 1pm only.


Please ring us on 01298 816200 to make an appointment.  Sadly, if you come to the sanctuary without an appointment we will not be able to assist you and will have to turn you away.  We are sure that you will understand; we are a purely voluntary workforce and our priority is the wellbeing and health of the cats in our care.

DIRECTIONS to  --  Hallsteads Farm, 121 Hallsteads, 

                                                     Dove Holes, SK17 8BU

Hallsteads is the main road through Dove Holes and Hallsteads Farm is located at the end of the private road between 119 & 123 Hallsteads (on the left-hand side of the A6 when driving north).  Please drive to the end of the cul-de-sac and carefully come down the drive immediately in front of you to the left of the bungalow where there is room to park at the rear of the property.  We request that you don’t park on the private road please as our neighbours will come out to complain to you and then to us.

Because we are a very busy sanctuary and all our available appointments tend to be filled very quickly, please make every effort to arrive on time so that we don’t have a build up of vehicles waiting.  If you expect to be delayed or are held up in traffic please contact us on 01298 816200 so that we can try to accommodate any changes necessary.
