First up on our list is 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.

Next up is Poppy, a ten-year-old Staffordshire Bull Terrier. A sweet and super affectionate little lady who loves being in the company of people.

She is still an active girl who loves going out on walks and exploring new sights and smells that the world has to offer.

Poppy loves being in the company of and playing with other dogs, so can be rehomed with a calm, small dog depending on them meeting at the centre and can live with older children, but no cats unfortunately.

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.
