First on this week’s list is Freddie! An active, playful and confident boy. He loves a bit of fuss and attention as well as a cosy place to sleep throughout the day.

Freddie enjoys the company of people and does enjoy a good game to keep him entertained. Although he does enjoy having a bit of alone time too.

He would have to be the only cat in the house and cannot live with dogs. He can live with older children following a successful meet at the centre.

How about giving Andy a new home?

Meet Andy, the three-year-old ex-racing greyhound who is looking for a nice new home to enjoy out of the racing life.

He is still getting used to retirement so an owner that can teach him new life skills would be a good fit. He can also be rehomed with Rosie (lower on the list) or alone, but is used to living with other greyhounds.

Due to his career as a racing greyhound, he cannot live with cats but would benefit from living with another dog to help build his confidence out on walks.

He enjoys a good bit of fuss and would love a quiet home to chill out in with his new family.

Next up is Maximilion, a cat who is looking for company to relax with in a chilled out home.

He does have a little bit of an adventurous side, so access to outside space would be good in a nice and calm environment.

He can live with older children who can understand him, and also live with dogs in a new home but unfortunately can’t live with other cats.

This is Rosie, like Andy, she is also a three-year-old ex-racing greyhound. She is still adjusting to life outside of racing so will need an owner who can teach her new life skills.

She can be homed in a pair with Andy (higher on the list) or alone, however she is used to living with other greyhounds and would benefit from living with other dogs to help build confidence.

Due to her career in racing, she cannot live with cats as she likes to chase them too much.

Would you like to adopt Charlie?

Last but not least it’s Charlie, an affectionate lad who loves to cuddle up once he gets to know you.

He enjoys playing with toys as well as curling up on your lap for a bit of fuss and some affection. He has lived with children before so can live with school aged children but not in a home that is too noisy.

He hasn’t lived with dogs before but they don’t worry him.

The process to adopt any of these pets is simple and begins with applicants completing a ‘Homefinder’ form.

This can either be completed online or in-house at the Blue Cross centre on Bourne Hill, Wherstead.

The re-homing fees for dogs aged over 16 weeks is £160 and the fee for cats is £65.

Where possible all pets are neutered, micro-chipped and will have had at least their first vaccination before going to new homes.

New owners have the benefit of four weeks of free pet insurance, as well as free behaviour support for the lifetime of their pet.
