Romney House is a sanctuary for what might be termed the 'harder to home' cats or, in some cases, the 'impossible to home' cats.

Many of their permanent residents are available to sponsor - see their webpage, linked below, for details.

Based in Godalming, Surrey, covering Guildford, Godalming and all surrouding villages.
Helping homeless, unwanted, abandoned, sick and injured cats. The sanctuary arranges for any necessary veterinary treatment, and cares for them until new loving homes can be found. Some cats are cared for permanently, when there is no hope of rehoming. Feral cats are frequently taken in and where possible youngsters are tamed for rehoming. Adult ferals are usually trapped, neutered and returned, as they are more likely to survive better in the wild than caged, and are often not suitable for homing. This well kept sanctuary has been running for many years and the number of animals in their care is growing constantly, making any charitable donations received more vital than ever.
Handy-persons Needed: The Sanctuary would love to hear from any handymen or women willing to volunteer their help for some urgent maintenance work. Repairs are needed on the cat runs and chalets, to make sure the cats are warm and secure. Please call them if you can offer any help at all, or can donate materials etc.
