ANIMAL carers at Felixstowe's Blue Cross centre are hoping to play Cupid today and find two dogs a lovely new home.

Ten-year-old Beannie and her six-year-old daughter Timmone came to the Blue Cross centre together - and would love to stay together.

They are Standard Schnauzer dogs and staff say while it would be great to find someone willing to take the pair, they could be re-homed separately.

Both are extremely affectionate who love nothing more than to play and learn and will make lively additions to a household.

Andrew Gillon, manager at the centre in Walton High Street, said: “We love to matchmake on behalf of the animals at the centre and there's nothing better than helping them to find their perfect human partner.

“We hope our Valentine appeal will tug a few heartstrings and encourage new owners to come forward for these lovely dogs.”

The centre is open Monday and Tuesday from 11am to 4pm, Wednesdays 11am to 1pm, and Thursday to Saturday 11am to 4pm.

It has kennels for 24 cats and 12 dogs and is currently looking for new premises to expand.

Last year it was the most successful Blue Cross in the country, re-homing 401 animals - 133 dogs and 268 cats.

It is looking for between three acres and eight acres in the Felixstowe area and would love to be able to take in horses as well as expand its animal welfare clinic to help those people who cannot afford so easily to look after animals and often do not have a car to travel out of town.

Anyone with land they feel could be suitable should call Mr Gillon on 01394 283254.
