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 later this year and take part in an exhilarating 15,000ft tandem skydive!!

Pets looking for their 'furever' family



Here's our beautiful Marilyn.
Marilyn arrived at Noah's Ark pregnant so will be with kittens any day now! 
She is a lovely, affectionate girl, who would love a lap to sit on when her mummy duties are over with.
Do you have a cosy furever home for Marilyn to relax in? Please get in touch if you do.



Meet Arthur!

Arthur arrived at the rescue rather worse for wear. After a lifetime on the streets, his injuries were quite substantial and his condition poor. Despite life's knocks, he's turned out to be a very friendly puss. Arthur is a great little cat, who thoroughly deserves a second chance!

Can you offer this amazing little man a home? 


Mum and Kittens

Meet this little beauty and her four kittens. 
Life hasn't been easy for them as we rescued them all from a skip!
But things are on the up for this lovely mother and her babies.
Mum will be ready in 12 weeks and kittens in 10 weeks.
More updates and photos to come.


Zion - Rehomed

Meet Zion. Age 10.

This lovely boy has spent the past few years on the streets.

Since coming into rescue he has been very timid, but is quickly becoming very loving and enjoys strokes and treats!

He would prefer to be the only cat and an indoor home only. 

Do you have a furever home waiting for Zion? If so, please get in touch.


Zimba - Reserved

Meet Zimba.

Zimba is 3 years old. He is a very soft and loving cat, who loves strokes and cuddles. 

Can you offer this affectionate cat a loving home?


Noah's Ark Kittens we have rehomed

Phoebe - Rehomed

This beautiful little girl is so lucky to be alive. She spent the first 4 months of her life in the outdoors. When we managed to catch her, she was afraid and wounded. Now her wound has healed and she's learning to trust our team. Instead of hissing she now purrs in delight when her ears are rubbed. It's amazing to see how she develops everyday and we can't wait for the day she voluntarily jumps on our knee. Despite her rocky start, Phoebe has turned into a lovely kitten and her 'Furever Family' have found her! 
Way to go Phoebe!

Pebbles  - Rehomed

Tiny Pebbles may be small but she has the spirit of a lion. Pebbles started her life under a shed with brothers Leaf and Digby and mum Daisy. They were discovered at 6 weeks and whilst mum Daisy was super relaxed, her three kittens kittens were initially very afraid and timid. With lots of time and patience Pebbles came around like her brothers. She is cute as buttons and loves to chase around, catnip toys and string a must for this gorgeous little girl.
