    From the moment we received the phone call to say we had been successfully matched with the cat we had seen on the excellent website to the moment we took our lovely cat home the service we received couldn't have been more helpful, professional, informative, thorough or caring.
    The staff clearly know the animals well and we were given just the right amount of personally tailored information to make an informed choice about whether she was the right cat for us and to feel confident we could meet her needs and access future behaviour support of necessary.
    We have one very happy and much loved cat at home now - thank you Blue Cross Burford for facilitating this.

    I have been looking to rescue for a while now and the other centres I contacted just didnt seems to be interested in following up with me even though I am in an excellent position to provide a wonderful home. The Burford team were so responsive, engaging and super helpful in the meeting and adoption process. I can honestly provide no negative constructive feedback. The training session pre adoption was great and in observing their interactions with other guests they were wonderfully welcoming to everyone and completely professional.

    Absolutely fantastic rescue centre! The staff are friendly, helpful and really wanted to help us find the right animal for us. The first pony we looked at was very sweet and clearly very well looked after but a little too green for us, the second pony who we have now adopted is just what we wanted. Lauren emailed me promptly after I filled in an enquiry form on the website and sent me details of the two ponies she had picked out for me to look at, she answered my extensive questions professionally and fully. Hannah who met us at the gate, interviewed us, showed us the ponies and assessed our suitability for adopting a pony. She was professional, friendly and knowledgable, she explained how the horses were trained at the blue cross, what stage each of them were at and demonstrated handling and riding of them. She was also very patient and kind with my two children who joined us on the visit. Rachel helped us when we went to pick up our new pony and was also kind, patient and professional. She went through all the paperwork and advice with us in a very professional manner with most emphasis on caring for our new pony appropriately and ensuring that we were happy with the arrangements as well as the Blue Cross. Rachel also specially opened the 2nd hand tack shop for us so we were able to purchase some equipment for our new pony while we were there. Overall I would say the Blue Cross Burford are and absolutely 5 star rescue centre, the animals are well cared for, all the staff are friendly and dedicated to finding the right homes for the animals in their care.
