Animals looking for a home

If you are interested in giving any of our rescued animals a home, you can contact us by e-mail to or phone us on 02894432229. (Please leave a message on our answer machine and we will get back to you, usually in the evening). You need to make arrangements to view them as not all animals are on site, but may be at different locations. All our animals are free to a good home. We cover the cost of their neutering & preventative treatments.


We are based in Northern Ireland and only rehome our animals here as we carry out home checks & provide ongoing support as required. If you have homed a dog directly from 7th Heaven or via our Matchmaking Service and it still has training needs, we are offering to pay for free training sessions


This friendly speyed female black and white cat is about 9 years old. She came in when her owner became ill. She is a lovely, clean cat who loves attention 


Do you remember Whisper who came in at the end of May with a suspected broken paw and a problem with her eye. Well here she is now, all full of live and look for a new home. We can't thank Firmount vets enough for the special care they gave her. After lots of investigation to see why she was still in pain, they found a huge abscess under her leg. They sort it all and she is as good as new. Her eye is discoloured but we are assured that she is OK now.Whisper loves her food and attention in equal measures. If you think you can offer her a safe forever home please email us to

Millie & Mitzy

These 2 older female cats had had a bad start in life. They had been found dumped in a skip when they were kittens. They found a home together and lived quietly for many years until their owner's circumstances changed and they ended up living in the garage. Now in with us they are still a bit spooked out with the change and have spent the last week either together in a pyramid bed or snuggled wrapped up in a blanket.

Lucy & Charlie

Charlie is an 8 month old male labradoodle. Lucy is a 9 month old Cavachon. They are both house trained. Both have great temperaments.


Loki is a 3 ½ year old neutered mongrel (Spaniel / Poodle / Labrador Cross). He can be a very boisterous dog and requires a lot of attention and activity. He would not be suitable where there are young children

Pablo is a 2 year old neutered Olde English Bulldog. He is house trained, is well behaved in the house and is happy to chill in his bed and sleep. He is very timid and nervous around strangers so would need time to bond with his new owner before he is rehoused. He needs somebody strong and experienced, who is willing to work with him. Pablo has been around other dogs but due to him being very reactive to noises/strangers he is best on his own with no other pets. He hasn’t been around children.


Sam is approx an 8 month old neutered Lurcher cross. He had previously not been trained or socialised and has fear aggression. His current owner has taken him to classes but it is a work in progress and although he loves their kids, they are a stressor. They are struggling to give him the consistency he requires in his training. He needs a loving, quiet home, with no kids and an experienced owner who can offer the consistency in his training. He is such a lovely, clever boy, keen to please

Things to think about when looking for a cat or kitten:


  • Do you have the patience to cope with any problem that may arise during the settling in period?

  • Are you prepared to possibly have your furniture scratched, as some cats will do this?

  • Are you prepared to spend time with your cat / kitten as they enjoy human interaction? 

  • If you live in rented accomodation, does your landlord permit animals?

  • Initially, have you somewhere secure in your home to keep them, especially kittens, as they can be hyperactive and can cause unitentional damage to ornaments etc?

  • Can you afford vet bills if they become unwell?

  • Cats, particularly young kittens can scratch you when playing which can be painful. Are you prepared for this?

  • Are you going to keep them indoors, or let them outside?  If letting them outside, there are many risks that could affect your cat eg traffic, other animals that are territorial, other animals that may be carriers of infectious diseases and grassy areas which may have been treated with pesticides

Things you should consider before rehoming a dog:


  • Are you fit enough and have enough spare time to walk the dog regularly?

  • Will there be someone there for a lot of the day? Dogs like company and can suffer from separation anxiety.

  • Dogs like to be part of the family, so are you prepared to keep it with with you for a lot of the time?

  • When you do let your dog out, do you have a secure or fenced area where it is safe for them and from where they cannot escape?

  • Do you have understanding neighbours in case they bark?

  • Do you have the patience and time to cope with any problem that may arise during the settling in period?

  • Do you have a 15 - 20 year committment as this be the lifespan of some dogs.

  • Are you able to afford vets bills if they become unwell?

  • If you live in rented accomodation, does your landlord permit animals?
