Phoenix Association foster, sterilize and find homes for many animals, throughout the Dordogne and beyond, every year. Here is just a selection of recent stories of fortunate 'Phoenix' animals who have now found their 'forever homes'.
This majestic gentleman is very much like the cat in the famous book: A Street Cat Called Bob. Like his namesake, he didn't have a good start in life but has now fallen on his feet and was adopted in October 2023.
Bob was one of several kittens born to an abandoned mum. All were rescued and fostered by Phoenix Association - France's volunteers and since adopted.
Bob's now a very much loved member of the family alongside many other previously rescued Phoenix animals within the household. He is always full of beans and very entertaining - a real character!
CJ Ramone doesn't quite live up to his rockstar name, with his clumpsy paws, slobbery kisses and stinky farts!
He was rescued with his 7 brothers and sisters (nicknamed - the Pirate Crew!). All found homes in October 2023. And CJ is now even learning Dutch with his new family!
Very much part of his new family, CJ is learning fast at puppy obedience classes (although he can be a little naughty at home; liking to think that all things are toys despite a wide selection of his own). But then, he's still a young chap despite being a big boy!
This troublesome fella was found in a hedge far from any buildings at around 5 weeks.
With a very dominant, squeaky meow and, a personality to match, he was named after an equally irritating British comedian (Keith Lemon)!
Adopted in November 2023, Keith is no wallflower and has shaken up what was otherwise a calm home to two mature felines. But the ladies have learned to put up with his crazy antics and he give such love and entertainment to his human family that they can't imagine life without him.
Simon & Sophia
Simon and Sophia were rescued together after living in a barn. First thought to be brother and sister, they were later identified as being 2 months apart and yet they are inseparable!
Extremely affectionate and cuddly, they have now found the most perfect home with a recently widowed lady, who has also adopted a third kitten from Phoenix (Mango) so she's now got her hands full!
A calm pair, they were carefully matched to their adopter in November 2023, as per our rehoming process, and are now very settled with their new brother.
Jewel was found living in a barn with four of her kittens in August 2023. A quiet, yet confident lady, this friendly beauty could have lived as a house cat but being highly independent we managed to find the most ideal situation - living in a chateau's barn with prize-winning, rare donkeys!
The barn is a busy place with lots of people to pet Jewel. So she now gets all the attention she needs but can roam the land, which is what she loves best.
Jewel was rehomed in November 2023 along with three of her four kittens to other homes. Her fourth kitten, Opal, is still awaiting her forever home unfortunately.
