These cute cats and adorable dogs are looking for love this Valentine’s Day. Could you find a place in your heart and your home for one of them and become the family they’re dreaming of?
Berry, 14, female: Berry was thought to be a stray when she was found, but was found to be microchipped when taken to the vets to be treated for fleas and worms. It’s thought that she was abandoned by her previous owners. She was in “extreme pain” and was critical after being diagnosed with enteritis. Luckily she pulled through after a course of antibiotics. She is now looking for a home without dogs and children under five.
Beau, 15 months, female: Beau 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.
Harriet, five, female: Harriet is semi-feral and was re-homed in 2010 after she was found in a garden in Hornchurch with her three adult kittens, all of which were feral. The family moved to a chicken rescue in Norfolk, which shut down in 2014 and didn’t notify Goldie’s Cat Rescue of the closure. Harriet was found a few weeks ago in someone’s garden trying to eat bird seed. She was covered in fleas, lice and had a belly full of worms. Harriet is seeking an owner with stables or a livery yard or someone who has a big piece of land, who could adopter her as a mouser. She is in great health, and is good with other cats. Harriet has been through a lot and deserves a loving home.
Suri, 13, female: Suri, who’s “desperate for human affection” is looking for a new home after her previous owner had a stroke and died in December. She is also starting to develop cataracts and will need an indoor-only home. She has hyperthyroidism, which is treated with a daily tablet, which costs just £1 a day.
Max, nine, male: 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 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 and would fit in with families, retired older people or couples.
Mya, nine, female: 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.
