September 12, 2016 – Meet Fudge (above) a very special little dog looking for a very special home. The five-year-old Jack Russell terrier is blind but loves walks – if you talk to him as you go – and has problems with his legs. He’s also petrified of ringing telephones. But this sweet boy he has a lot of love to give and he is just one of a number of pets with special needs the UK’s Royal Society for the Protection of Animals (RSPCA) is looking after as they wait for their forever homes.
Fudge is quite lively and needs a quiet home with a regular routine he can adjust to. If you can give Fudge a loving new home, please call Pauline at RSPCA Crewe, Nantwich & District branch on 07599 969 647.
Three-year-old Elijah (above) may only have three legs, but it doesn’t stop him from living life to the full. This lovely, friendly domestic shorthair cross enjoys attention and is definitely a lap cat!
He would like a home with owners who are around for some time during the day and could live with young children if they are supervised when handling him. He could also live with a dog but would prefer to be the only cat. If you could offer this puss a new home, please contact Newport Animal Centre on 0300 123 074.
Austin, Morgan and Robin are three kittens who were rescued by an RSPCA inspector and were taken in by the charity’s Canterbury and District branch.
They were very frightened when they arrived but after a few days settled in. Upon veterinary health checks, it was discovered that one of the kittens was missing its paw while another was missing most of one leg.
It is not clear how these injuries were caused as they had healed by the time they came into the RSPCA’s care. But these sweet cats, now 16-weeks-old, have not been affected by their disabilities and are now looking for homes. They are nervous so are looking for quieter, adult-only homes where they will be the only pets. Given lots of TLC and patience they are sure to come out of their shells. To offer Austin, Morgan or Robin a home, please call 01227 719113.
Crossbreed Angel has had a tough start to life. When she arrived at the RSPCA’s Newport Animal Centre she required urgent medical care due to an untreated exposed leg injury which led to the amputation of her leg.
The friendly and lively seven-year-old went on to find a loving new home on two occasions only to be returned when her adopters’ circumstances changed unexpectedly. She has been uprooted from family life and brought back to kennels and would very much like to find a forever home. She loves fuss and attention and enjoys playing fetch with a ball as well as running and playing.
Angel could live with a family with older, sensible children who have experience with dogs and could possibly live with another dog.
If you could offer this special girl her forever home, please call Newport Animal Centre on 0300 123 0744.
Abigail Moon, the RSPCA’s rehoming manager, said: “You can’t buy love – but you can rescue it!
“We would encourage anyone who is considering getting a pet to go to their local RSPCA rescue centre or to visit our website and see what amazing animals we have patiently waiting for a new home to call their own.
“It’s so rewarding to give an unwanted or previously mistreated animal a chance at a happy life.
“Our animals are loud, quiet, fluffy, big, small, or even three-legged. They come with a personality ready-made, a past that’s unique to them and a lot of love to give.
“Every animal which we re-home comes with a story. And although each individual may not be pawfect, they will be pawfect for you.”
