Stella just loves exploring new places

First on our list this week is Stella, a nine-year-old cross. A loving, affectionate and playful girl who loves nothing more than a good run around.

Stella is a clever girl and knows a number of tricks already like sit, paw, leave and also responds to a dog whistle for her recall when out in the park.

Stella would be best suited to a home with older children, and could possibly live with a calm male dog, or a cat used to living with dogs.

How about going for something a bit different and adopting Marlow the chinchilla?

He has been very well handled and is a friendly boy who loves a stroke. He is also very active, inquisitive and enjoys exploring his surroundings.

A home that can continue his socialising would be best and would love to go to a home with another chinchilla if possible.

How about giving the ravenous Rosie, the Maine Coon a nice new home?

Rosie is looking for a patient home where she can have time to settle in at her own pace and adjust in her own time.

It would be best for Rosie to be the only pet and not around children as she only wants attention on her own terms when she feels comfortable enough.

She is starting to get used to it but needs more time to make her more comfortable.

Next on our list is Lipsy, the one-year-old Staffordshire Bull Terrier, a nervous girl when she first meets new people but her personality soon shines through.

She is very active because of her age and loves going out on walks, chasing toys and a good game of football.

Lipsy can live with a suitably matched dog depending on them meeting at the centre, and can also live with teenage children but cannot be rehomed with a cat.

Last, but certainly not least, how about Panda the ferret?

She is a sweet-natured girl who can be a little bit timid but is gradually growing in confidence.

Panda ideally needs to be re-homed with a calm and patient owner who is looking to give her the home and time she deserves.

The RSPCA assures families that all cats, dogs, ferrets and rabbits that are offered for adoption have been vaccinated, microchipped and neutered.

An adoption fee of £150 for dogs, £60 for cats and £25 for rabbits and ferrets, is charged to help cover the cost of getting the animals ready for their new homes.

If you can help, call the RSPCA Suffolk East and Ipswich Branch on 0300 999 7321 9am until 4.30pm or contact them via email.
