From Batman the chincilla to BT the cockatiel, animals of all shapes and sizes at the RSPCA centre in Martlesham are in need of new homes.
Although many families have visited the centre in Mill Lane over the Christmas and New Year period, there are still more than 50 cats and around 25 dogs which need rehoming, as well as rabbits, ferrets, guinea pigs and even birds.
The centre is unable to accept any more animals and the waiting list is growing.
Deputy manager Becky Fox said: “We have had quite a lot of visitors looking at the animals but our message to everyone is to come in and see what we have got.
“We match animals to people’s needs to ensure there is a good match. It gives them both the best chance to be together forever rather than the pet just being returned.

“The more animals that are reserved or go to a home, the more space that is created to help others in our care.”
Miss Fox said people in general are now better at understanding what is required to own a pet.

She said: “The people we deal with certainly understand pets are not just for Christmas. They are a bit more happier to wait until they get the pet home after Christmas.”
