Noah's Ark Pet Rescue

Finding a furever family

The team at Noah's Ark have always been passionate about pets and have been rescuing pets individually for years; Bobby, Aslan, Seb, Willy, The General, Bonnie, Smokey, Noah and Gizmo, the list goes on. 

It quickly became apparent as we took over Noah's Pet Holiday Home that this was the perfect opportunity to adapt our kennels and cattery and incorporate a separate pet section where we could care for pets in need of help and needing to become part of a furever family.

Initially we gave ourselves two years to bring our dream to fruition, until we met Alice a 5 week old abandoned kitten full of cat flu. We rushed her to the vets who were hopeful they could save one of her eyes and build up her strength for her to be able to endure the operation she needed. Unfortunately she was just too weak and she suffered a seizure just before the operation. The generosity of our friends, family and customers to help cover her vet bills was overwhelming and spurred us into action. So here we are... the start of an amazing journey and all are welcome to join us for part or all of this exciting venture.


What we do

Below you can find information on the rescue pet care we provide and how you can get involved with rehoming one of our rescue pets of fundraising to support the rescue pets in our care.


Pets in need of help

Noah's Ark Pet Rescue is dedicated to caring for the lost, stray and abandoned dogs and cats of the Barnsley area. We have a non-destruction policy and are committed to reducing the unwanted cat and dog problem in this area by neutering every animal that we re-home.

Rehoming Policy

Before we re-home, your pet will be vaccinated and neutered. All applications are subject to a home visit. We want to ensure our pets have the best shot of finding their new home, so we won't have a massive checklist you need to full fill, we just need to see that you have oodles of love to give your chosen pet and can offer them somewhere safe and warm x


There are numerous ways you can support Noah's Ark Pet Rescue, you can pop into reception at Noah's Ark Pet Holiday Home to make a donation, ring us to make a card payment over the phone, organise a fundraising event OR......... why not join us on Sunday 29 March and take part in an exhilarating 15,000ft tandem skydive!!

Pets looking for their 'furever' family

eve 2.jpg


Here's our beautiful Eve. Eve came from a colony of feral cats the rescue is working hard to trap and neuter and rehome where possible.

Eve arrived at the rescue with pregnant mums, Joan and Marple. Fortunately we got Eve before she'd come into season.

Eve is currently in a foster home, where she has come on leaps and bounds from the frightened feral that arrived at the rescue.

Eve is a gentle soul, but is used to children and loves her kitty friends.


Pets looking for their 'furever' family



Meet super cheeky and mischievous Milo. Milo is one year old and totally super cute. He's very playful but is definitely a cuddle monster too!

Milo had to come to the rescue because his best friend was developing a severe allergic reaction to him. His family were devastated to part with him, but we're hoping he'll soon have his very own 'Furever Family' to take care of him.

Milo is great with other cats, especially our kittens, so we're confident he would happily share a home with another cat.


Noah's Kittens



This cheeky chap delights us everyday. Hermes adores playtime, he's very fast and agile. When he's not tearing around , he's more than happy getting lots of fuss and attention. He joined the rescue only 5 months old having been abandoned with his two brothers Aramis and Paco.

Now he's warm, content and up to lots of mischief with Paco,whilst waiting for their 'Furever Families' to find them.

Magic, Forest & Mamba

Meet Magic, one of Marple's little bundles of fur!! Magic, Forest and Mamba were only a day away from being born outdoors and at the mercy of predators and the elements. Mum Marple is part of a feral colony we are trying to trap and neuter and fortunately we were able to get beautiful Marple into the rescue where she could give birth to her cheeky trio in safety.

Handsome Magic has watched his brothers head off to their new homes and is patiently waiting for his very own Furever Family to come and find him.

Daisy had been wandering around for a couple of months and being fed by a lovely couple who thought she'd found her way back home after she stopped visiting their garden, until she popped out one day from under their shed with three little kittens in tow.

Mum and kittens are now tucked up safe in the rescue and will be ready for their new homes November, December.
