WADARS Animal Rescue

Rehoming Charity

We were approached by WADARS as they were looking to expand their rescue facilities at their Headquarters in Worthing, West Sussex. They had big ambitions to expand the site and enlisted us to advise, design and construct their new rescue cattery.

About this Project

This is a very exciting time for Wadars as we continue to develop our Animal Rescue Centre in Ferring. We have now completed the construction of a purpose-built cattery for the rehoming of cats and kittens, and also developed a small wildlife unit.

We have rehomed cats, dogs, kittens and puppies in the community for the last 50 years, but previously all of our animals have either been cared for in commercial catteries and kennels or with our volunteer fosterers until suitable forever homes could be found. The new cattery means that cats and kittens looking for new forever homes are now cared for by our specially trained Wadars Animal Welfare Team.

At any one time, up to 34 cats can be receiving care in our specialist purpose-built facility, which includes an animal intake and assessment room and a food preparation area as well as a separate isolation unit.

Purpose Built Cattery

Inside WADARS cat unitEach cattery pen consists of a large bedroom area leading to an enclosed run. With each pen individually heated, the bedroom can be closed off from the run during periods of cold weather. Several pens have lift-out sections which enable us to accommodate larger groups of cats if they have come from the same home or utilise it as a maternity unit for a new mum.

Having the new cattery will mean that we can take-in and rehome a far greater number of cats than we have previously been able to, and for the more nervous individuals, a team of volunteer cat socialisers come in and spend time with them in the comfort and safety of their pen.

We found the team at Pedigree Pens extremely easy to work with. They listened to what we wanted and helped us to develop a purpose-built unit to suit those needs. The cattery is a really nice environment for cats and staff alike, and very easy to keep clean. I would highly recommend Pedigree Pens catteries to other animal rescues, boarding establishments, and pet owners.
