First up on our list this week is Samson, a homely boy who loves spending his days sleeping around the house and lying in the sunshine.

Samson loves to have a bit of fuss and attention but is also quite an independent cat and is happy to go about his day doing his own thing.

He is currently looking for a new home through the Home Direct scheme, meaning he is currently staying with his current owners whilst the Blue Cross are finding him a new home.

Next up is Johnny, a four-year-old greyhound, a laid back guy who is really sweet natured and gentle.

He loves quietly watching the world go by so if you have a spot by the window, Johnny will surely claim it, he may have the physique for speed but he isn’t too energetic and doesn’t require as much exercise as you may think.

He enjoys his walks with other dogs so may be able to live with another calm dog with a similar temperament in his new home.

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.
