Can you help these Suffolk Blue Cross cats and dogs find a home?
PUBLISHED: 10:00 11 June 2017
Could you open your home to one of these cats and dogs looking for new homes at the Blue Cross centre in Wherstead?
First on our list is Roxy, a fun and affectionate girl that has a real zest for life. She loves to run and play with her toys and leap around.
Roxy is still young so she will need a home that can continue her training and help her learn about the world.
She will need to be the only dog in the home. She can’t live with cats, but can live with older children.
Next up are felines Indie, a short-haired female, and Foster, a long-haired male, who are looking for a home together.
Both love going outside and soaking up the sun and their new home will need to be happy to provide Foster with regular grooming sessions.
They could live with children of any age but would need to go to a home without any other cats or dogs.
Meet the beautiful Sarah, a former racing greyhound that has raced around the track in Yarmouth, but now looking for a nice home to retire in.
A very friendly girl, she has quickly discovered her new favourite game to play is fetch, but is then quite happy to collapse in a comfy corner and snooze. Sarah could live with a family with children following a successful meeting at the centre but can’t be re-homed with any other cats or dogs.
Baku is a cat that loves the outside, especially in nice weather, who is looking for a new home in a quiet area.
She enjoys the company of others and relaxing on the sofa as well as playing with toys but she can be a little unsure about new things.
Baku can live with school age children following introductions but currently has no experience living with other cats or dogs. However, there is potential to live with a calm dog.
Meet Arbo, the seven-year-old Lurcher. This happy chap loves to get out on long walks.
Arbo has lived with other children before so could live with school age children after meeting at the centre.
He also could live with other social dogs depending on a meeting at the centre but can’t live with cats as he likes to chase them around.
Last but not least is the handsome Tooks. He is a big chap with lots of energy to play and also loves a good fuss with people from time to time. He is part Bengal and does have some of their traits; he likes to explore and can be quite independent but he can also be sociable with people, too.
Tooks would need to be in a home with older children, as well as being in a home without another cat or dog, and is looking to live in an area with a low cat population.
The process to adopt any of these pets is simple and begins with applicants completing a ‘Homefinder’ form.
This can either be completed online or in-house at the Blue Cross centre on Bourne Hill, Wherstead.
The re-homing fees for dogs aged over 16 weeks is £160 and the fee for cats is £65.
Where possible all pets are neutered, micro-chipped and will have had at least their first vaccination before going to new homes.
New owners have the benefit of four weeks of free pet insurance, as well as free behaviour support for the lifetime of their pet.
