Animal Antics: Cats and dogs looking for love and a home
PUBLISHED: 12:00 14 February 2015
These cats and dogs are looking for love this Valentine’s Day. Can you help find them a new home?
Poor Ben, aged one, had been found in the road after being hit by a car.
He was brought into the Celia Hammond Animal Trust who treated him for a fractured leg.
He is now fully recovered and ready to find a new home.
Ben is a friendly cat who is doing very well at the trust and would fit in well with all different types of families.
Beau, 15 months old, was brought to the RSPCA by the dog warden in December.
Her owner was traced but didn’t want her anymore and said she had been rehomed two weeks previously. They had no contact details for the new owner.
She was neglected but nursed back to full health and soon learns to trust new people with gentle encouragement. She enjoys going for walks and is quick to learn, with a little basic training already in place,
Beau is looking for a home without any cats, though she would be able to live with other dogs and sensible older children.
Not a lot is known about Lucky’s background.
She was left at Celia Hammond by a man who came to the reception desk and said he was going to leave her while he parked his car, but he never returned.
There was a note in her basket to say her owner had died and nobody wanted her.
Lucky does appear to have been a much loved cat, enjoying lots of cuddles. She prefers to be inside, suggesting she was a house cat, and is rather overweight.
Lucky would enjoy a home environment similar to what she had experienced before, with an owner who has a lap she can sit on and provide her with plenty of affection.
Max was neglected, suffering from a flea allergy and living in unsuitable conditions with another dog when RSPCA inspectors found him.
He’s a friendly nine-year-old dog who is gentle when accepting a treat and loves a kiss and a cuddle.
He likes to play in short bursts and enjoys having a sniff and potter about the exercise yard at the kennels.
Max is looking for a home without any cats or small furry animals, but would be able to live with other dogs or older children.
He would like a garden but would fit in with families, retired older people or couples.
Little Antonia was handed into the Celia Hammond Animal Trust as her owner didn’t want her.
At nine months old, she is still a kitten but has been neutered, vaccinated and microchipped and is ready to move in with a family that want her and will love her.
Mya had been living in unsuitable conditions with another dog when she came into the RSPCA’s care.
She was extremely nervous on arrival but is slowly coming out of her shell, allowing staff to stroke and pet her.
Mya will need a home with a secure garden with a minimum of six feet of fencing, as well as a family who are patient, caring and able to give her plenty of exercise and stimulation.
She wouldn’t be able to live with a cat or small animals, but could join a family who already have a dog. The RSPCA would consider a home with sensible older children, but she may not be suitable for a first-time dog owner.
