Anim-Mates is a voluntary animal rescue and care group based in northwest Kent and southeast London that rescues, cares for, and re-homes unwanted cats, dogs, rabbits and guinea pigs.

All the animals are in the homes of foster carers who treat them as their own pets until they can be re-homed.

Over 100 animals that are unsuitable for rehoming are in the care of Anim-Mates for the rest of their lives.

All the rescued animals are neutered to ensure that they can no longer breed and so help to reduce the large number of unwanted animals

Rescued animals are often in a bad condition and Anim-Mates takes on the responsibility of trying to restore all animals to optimum health.

Anim-Mates, which is run entirely by volunteers, has a no-kill policy.
