Claire, Ali and the team were just fantastic. It was clear to us from the outset that they all have a real, genuine passion for animal care, which made us so sure we had made the right decision to come to Poppy's. We were looking for two kittens and travelled over to Ali's to meet two little sisters, who we instantly fell in love with. Ali kept us updated with photos, videos and text messages as they grew and gave advice on food, beds etc. Poppy & Willow have settled in so well and we would highly recommend Poppy's Place for anyone looking to adopt a new pet. The work they do is just amazing and we are so happy to be a part of it!

Having adopted animals (both cats and dogs) for most of my life, including from institutions such as Battersea and Wood Green Animal Shelter and they were good, but Poppy's Place go the extra mile. We were given all the information we needed for a successful adoption and were matched with the purrfect cat who is now very much a part of the family even after only a few days. 5 stars all round for Poppy's Place.

They were truly fantastic, very professional, helpful and genuinely caring if the animals. Beautiful facilities, very well kept. The home visit was completed thoroughly and by a very well informed team member. They matched us up with a beautiful kitten who had fitted in very well with our family and we love very much. Thank you Poppy's place.

Poppy's place were wonderful to deal with from the very first point of contact. Friendly, Informative and handle the cats so well. We were very impressed with the facilities for the cats. We chose to rehome Joseph - now named Cole and he has been a lovely addition to our family. When we collected Cole we were given all his information and lovely little kitten bag which included a blanket, toy and treats. Fab service and would recommend all to go here if looking to rehome a cat. Kerry and Dave x

I cannot recommend Poppys enough. The staff are friendly, knowledgeable, caring and very efficient. The whole adoption process is well done. Our new cat was looked after very well before we adopted her and you can tell everyone at poppys has the animals welfare and care as a priority. We were talked through everything from food, toys, vaccinations and microchips. I would highly recommend poppys to anyone wishing to adopt a cat, Thanks to them our family is now complete.

Poppy's Place is a very friendly and loving rescue centre. They were very accommodating to both our requirements, and to every single one of the animal's requirements. They ensured our adopted cat was well suited to us and our personal situation, as well as ensuring that we met our new cat's needs. They also made sure he had a clean bill of health before we collected him. Jack has a lovely playful and loving temperament and is also well house trained, which reflects the perfect care that he received whilst staying at Poppy's Place. Couldn't ask for a more perfect little addition to our family. Let's hope there's room for a second next year, and if so, will certainly be returning to Poppy's place! ;)

Hi my partner and I were very lucky to have been chosen to be new parents to BamBam a very very adorable kitten. We met with the owners and had a very in depth house checking. Then we met the most loveable kitten ever. Bam has fitted into our family as if he has always been here. I can not say enough about Poppys, they have been there from the very beginning of BamBams life and will continue to be a part of his life. While we were waiting for Bam to be old enough to come to us we were given updates and photos. If there is anything we need help with in the future with Bam I know that all at Poppys will be there to help and advise us. We feel very lucky to have Bam in our lives and to all at Poppys we both thank you so very much xxx

From start to finish Poppys Place proved themselves to be thoroughly professional, incredibly caring of their charges and of the prospective and new owners. The environment was brilliant for the cats who looked so well cared for and happy. Their pre assessment and post adoption care has been brilliant. Their parting gift to Leo was well thought out, practical and showed that they are always prepared to go the extra mile for the animals and the owners. I thoroughly recommend them. My kitten was full of life and energy, glossy and fully toilet trained. He's been confident and settled in really well. I was thoroughly prepared for what to expect - the up side and the challenges of having a kitten. I know I can go to them for advice or reassurance at any time.

We saw a beautiful litter of kittens on the poppys place facebook page, I contacted Claire at the rescue and was sent an application pack. Claire contacted me to arrange a home visit and told me about the kittens and cats currently at poppys. The home visit was really relaxed and we arranged a visit to the rescue to meet the kittens. During the home visit Claire told us that she thought there was a kitten currently in their care that would suit our family. We met Matilda on bank holiday monday and totally fell in love with her, she was happy, well fed and had clearly been well loved while in their care. We arranged to pick her up after her injections, when i arrived Simon talked me through the after care we would receive and gave Matilda a little care package to take (including a hand knitted blanket!! and some treats). Our family are totally in love with Matilda and Poppys place have been fantastic, I have rescued before however this experience was fantastic, Claire and Simon guide you through adopting the right cat in the right way without being overbearing. I would recommend Poppys place to everyone, they have helped us make our family completex

On arrival, we were welcomed and asked if we would like to meet all the animals in their care, and could see how happy they were. They all had all the comforts they needed, toys, food, water and warm, dry and clean pens with separate sleeping areas away from litter trays, everything had been well thought out. The office area was available to use to meet our cat in person, play and see her walking around and gauge her nature and confidence. When we picked our cat up, not only did we get our little pet but a goody bag with food, treats, and toys, and more. A very professional rescue centre where the needs of the animals are put first and foremost. As each cat is handled every day, this brings out their loving nature and where human contact is key, in readiness for rehoming.

We adopted a little kitten who has been with us for a few months now. Poppy's Place offered a fantastic service; all little cats and kitties are kept in lovely conditions with the best care they could receive... they now have their own special cat run, with lots of toys and things to keep them busy! Poppy's Place Animal Rescue pride themselves of making sure all their animals are given lots of love and this shows in the way they are cared for and how they are helped to socialise and come out of themselves if they are either particularly nervous or have been treated poorly in the past. All kitties are vaccinated, wormed and are micro chipped prior to finding their new forever homes. Poppy's Place Animal Rescue is run by a very dedicated couple and is supported by volunteers who offer valuable support and donations to the charity.
