Lincs Ark is a small charity operating in the South Lincolnshire area to rescue and rehome cats, kittens and other small animals. We are entirely self-funded, raising money via appeals, fundraising events, etc. Everyone involved with the group is an unpaid volunteer, with a love of animals, and each year over 170 cats, kittens and other small animals are helped. All funding goes directly to the care of the animals; we do not pay for any administrative overheads, our time and effort is given freely.
Prior to adoption we visit you in your home for an informal chat and to answer any questions you may have.
We endeavour to carry out a post adoption visit to ensure all is well and your new pet has settled into it’s new home.
- Rehoming of kittens under 6 months of age to families with young children are assessed on an individual basis.
- No Lincs Ark animals are to be used for breeding.
- If for any reason you find you cannot keep your adopted pet please contact us first and not try to rehome the pet yourself.
- We do not sell our animals, but we do ask for a minimum donation which helps us continue our rescue work.
- We do not rehome our animals as surprise presents.
- Due to the highly increased risk of health problems in cats and other animals exposed to secondhand smoke, we will not rehome any of our animals to a home where the residents smoke indoors.

Fundraising & Volunteering
LINCS ARK NEEDS YOU!
We URGENTLY need more like-minded animal lovers to join the friendly team at Lincs Ark. Even if you can spare just a few hours please contact us. We particularly need help with the following:
Foster Carers are valued members of the team, who look after animals until they are adopted. To become a foster carer, you will need previous experience of handling and taking care of animals. The majority of the animals we foster are cats and kittens, but we also need foster homes for small animals such as rabbits and guinea pigs.
Full support is given, food and litter supplied and vets costs covered.
If you live in the mid/south Lincolnshire area and would like more information about fostering for Lincs Ark please get in touch.
The more foster carers we have - the more animals we can help!
Do have a look at our 'Is Fostering For Me' page on our dropdown menu from How to help. This will explain all about fostering for Lincs Ark
Anyone wanting to adopt an animal from us needs to be home-checked. As a Home Visitor you would visit potential new owners at their homes and assess their suitability according to the animal’s needs.
Once the animal has been rehomed Home Visitors endeavour to return to carry out a post adoption visit to ensure all is well and your new pet has settled into it’s new home.
Would suit someone who has experience with cats, and training will be given. Own transport is essential.
We always need more people to join our friendly team!
