Could you offer a home to one of these cats and dogs at the Blue Cross centre in Wherstead?
First up is the young Tiger, a Lurcher who just before Christmas fractured his right back leg that is now on the mend.
Not quite able to do off lead exercise quite yet, Tiger fills his time with puzzles and training that can be done stationary as he needs lots of mental stimulation while he can’t run yet.
Tiger will need people around for most of the day as he is still young and will need plenty of mental stimulation to feel content, but once he has recovered will be as fun and lively as ever.
Next up is Gilbert, a cool character that loves nothing more than chilling out and relaxing but just wiggle a bit of string he will show you how playful he is.
Gilbert can live with older children who are able to understand that he needs time to relax and would need to meet at the centre first before taking Gilbert home.
Ideally a quiet and calm home would be perfect for Gilbert with a big garden for him to explore to call his own.

Meet Lizzy, the four-year-old Greyhound, who was once a career racing greyhound but has officially gone into retirement.
Since coming to the Blue Cross centre, Lizzy has become a lot more confident and relaxed meeting new people and is very relaxed with the staff at the centre.
Lizzy can’t wait to curl up in a cosy bed in a home she can call her own, could you give her the perfect retirement home?
Next up is the fluffy Kitka, have you got room in your home for one more?
She has found life in the cattery a little scary at first and has taken a bit of time to settle so would need patient new owners that can give her the time and space.
Kitka enjoys some gentle fuss from time to time and is looking forward to moving to a quiet and calm home.
Here is the energetic and bouncy lurcher Amos, currently looking for a new home through the Home Direct scheme, meaning he is currently with his owners until the Blue Cross finds him a new home.
Affectionate and lively, Amos loves nothing more than to cuddle up and get lots of fuss and attention, he will need an owner that is around a good part of the day to train him to learn how to be alone.
Amos currently lives with children and would be able to again but with children of school age due to his size and bouncy nature.
Last but not least is Tom, a handsome guy that is fairly independent but does enjoy a gentle fuss and playing with string or feathers.
He’s an independent guy as he was found hanging around as a stray he is used to being outside and has spent plenty of time out and doing his own thing.
If you have space in your home for a laid back feline then definitely get in touch with the Blue Cross Suffolk centre.
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 £170 and the fee for cats is £70.
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.
