The RSPCA are appealing for animal lovers to come forward and adopt some of the cute creatures they are looking to rehome.
Alexander is an adult, male rabbit who was found stray, living under a car. He is a loving, friendly, sociable boy so will need a home that can continue socialising and handling him.
Alexander is currently looking for a home as an exquisite house rabbit or next to other rabbits as he has found it very difficult to find the right bunny friend. Alexander loves to tuck into his fruit and veg.
Perhaps you could offer a home to seven-month-old Chase, a Staffordshire bull terrier, who was returned through fault of his own. He is an energetic lad who has bundles of energy, he loves going out on walks and playing with his toys.
He has had little training in the past but needs a home with owners who could take this up again. Chase can be rehomed with older children and a suitably matched doggy friend, depending on introductions but not small children. He can also be rehomed with a bold cat that is used to dogs, but some training will be required.
Meet Kong, an affectionate adult, male cat who was found as a nervous stray. Time has passed and his confidence has grown enormously, he is now a super affectionate lap cat with an endless amount of love to give.
He has become very good at using his meow to get peoples’ attention for cuddles and kisses.
Peaches, who has recently given birth to four kittens,needs a home where she can be top cat, with owners who will make a big fuss of her.
She was found as a stray and after a little while at the RSPCA centre she gave birth to four kittens, and was such a good mother that she also adopted another kitten.
This is labrador Amy, who is four and a half years old, and was handed over to the RSPCA as her owners could no longer keep her. She is a sweet girl once she gets to know you but can be very nervous at first, so will need an understanding, experienced home that can provide her with what she needs.
She loves going out on walks and chasing a ball is her favourite thing. Amy socialises well with other dogs and can be rehomed with a suitably matched doggy friend depending on introductions but unfortunately cannot be rehomed with a cat. Due to her nervous nature Amy will need to be rehomed to an adult only home.
Buzz is another Staffordshire bull terrier, he is five and is a sweet, sensitive Staffy who is looking for a forever home.
Spending time with the people he knows is something that Buzz enjoys along with his walks and playing fetch with tennis balls.
Looking for a smaller pet which will demand less of your time? How about Sugar? This female guinea pig was found as a stray. Sugar can be shy to begin with though soon becomes confident when food is offered.
Sugar is currently looking for a friendly guinea pig friend that she can snuggle up to in her forever home.
The RSPCA assures families that all cats, dogs, ferrets and rabbits that are offered for adopted have been vaccinated, microchipped and neutered.
An adoption fee of £150 for dogs, £60 for cats and £25 for rabbits and ferrets is charged to help them cover the cost of getting the animals ready for their new homes.
Earlier this week ther RSPCA revealed they have been inundated with black cats ahead of Halloween, see more here
