Hey there, I'm the beautiful Rita! I'm on the hunt for my forever home where I can continue to bask in the comfort of love and care.

I'm a laid-back lady who enjoys lounging around and taking in the serenity of my surroundings. I'm still in the process of learning to trust humans, but my wonderful foster pawrents have helped my confidence to blossom, and I'm getting more and more adventurous each day!

I've shown that I reallllyyy like cat nip toys, especially the ones with feathers on them! I'm not quite sure about being touched yet, but my foster carer has allowed me to feel so much safer, and I'm sure I will grow to love the pats and scratches soon.

My ideal home will be a quiet one, that will have a designated space to let me initially settle in before exploring the entirety of the home. While in the shelter, I met Twix, and we've become the best of friends! We really help each other to feel safe and at home, so for that reason we would like to go to a home together.

If you're ready to open your heart and home, offering me patience and gentle kindness, you'll find yourself with a devoted companion who will undoubtedly bring joy and warmth to your life!

Pop in an application today, I can't wait to meet you!

Love, Rita xx

I am a bonded pair!

To pick me up you’re going have to pick up my buddy too.

The Adoption Process

Cats - If you wish to adopt a cat you are welcome to visit our Wingfield location between 10am and 3pm, Tuesday to Sunday, or our Edinburgh North location between 10am and 3pm, Thursday to Sunday.

Dogs - If you wish to adopt a dog, you are welcome to visit our Wingfield location between 10am and 3pm, Tuesday to Sunday. Dog adoptions from Edinburgh North are by application only. Please fill out the application form on the dog's profile and wait for our staff to contact you.

Please note we no longer do walk throughs of cats or dogs in order to provide a calmer environment for them.

Once you have met an animal you would like to adopt, you can take them home the same day as all AWL animals are desexed, microchipped, and health checked ready for their new home (yes, even the kittens and puppies!)
