November 2023 – Adoption Update

December Featured Post Image

Welcome to the latest update from Teckels Animal Sanctuary. In this brief overview, we’ll highlight our achievements and touching moments from November, showcasing the impact of our work on both our furry residents and the community. Stay tuned for inspiring adoption stories, our successful Christmas fair, and a heartfelt tribute to a cherished friend.

We’ve seen a massive rise in rehoming in November:

🐱 – Our feline companions have found joy, with 19 cats being welcomed into new homes, including many adorable kittens.

🐶 – We’ve also celebrated 8 dogs finding their forever families.


In our commitment to providing sanctuary to strays:

🚚  – We worked with the council and rescued 19 stray animals, a massive increase from October.

❤️  – Of these, we successfully reunited 16 with their grateful owners. An incredible achievement!

✔  – 2 found refuge with other rescue organisations, ensuring they continue to receive the care they need.

😻 – 1 remains under our care in the kennels, awaiting adoption after being neutered.

None of these achievements would have been possible without your unwavering generosity and support. 

Your donations have been the cornerstone of our mission, offering care, shelter, and new beginnings to animals in need.

As we reflect on the journey of November at Teckels, we want to emphasise that every contribution, no matter the size, has been instrumental in changing lives. Your kindness is the hope that fuels our efforts and the love that transforms destinies.

Here’s to a future filled with more stories of rescue and hope, and a heartfelt thank you for being an integral part of our Teckels family.

Faith’s Story

Faith, a tiny yet spirited pup born at our center, captured the hearts of our staff with her immense personality.

She was adopted by a wonderful local family, joining their other pets in exploring and learning about the world.

Her progress in training is remarkable, showing that size doesn’t define one’s spirit.

George’s New Chapter

George was one of the largest yet most friendly chaps in the cattery for rehoming.

George, a senior cat of 13 years, found a loving home where he’s now living a life of luxury and love. As you can see, he is very settled in his new home, enjoying all the comforts and being spoilt like all rescue cats deserve!

His story is a testament to the fact that there’s a perfect match for every animal, regardless of age.

Roly poly

Remembering Roly Poly

With heavy hearts, we share the passing of Roly Poly, a beloved and gentle giant who had been with us for nearly a year.

His gentle nature touched everyone at our centre.

He passed away peacefully at the vet’s, surrounded by love and kisses from our staff. Roly Poly will be deeply missed, and his memory will continue to inspire our work.

Christmas Fair Success

Our Christmas fair at the Churchdown Community Centre was a hit! Thanks to everyone who made it!

The spacious new venue offered ample room and better parking. A special visit from Father Christmas brought joy to children and dogs alike.

We raised over £3,000 and have already secured the venue for next year’s event.

Demand for Relinquishing Animals

Just like October, we’ve seen an increasing number of people seeking to relinquish animals in need. 

In November, we received over 100 calls and emails from individuals looking to rehome dogs and 90 for cats.

Teckels’ commitment to helping animals in need and finding them loving homes remains unwavering.


Help us Continue Our Mission

Thank you to everyone who donates to Teckels, your generosity is making a profound difference.

Your support is the driving force behind our mission to rescue, rehabilitate, and find loving homes for animals in need. Every contribution plays a vital role.

We invite you to become a donor today and continue making a difference.

Your support enables us to provide care, shelter, and hope to countless animals seeking a second chance at a better life. Together, we can create positive change and ensure a brighter future for these animals.

Join us in making a lasting impact today.
