The RSPCA has launched its annual Adoptober campaign encouraging prospective pet owners to consider giving a rescued animal a new home as new figures raise concerns that more animals are being relinquished to charities at a time when rehoming has slowed.

Clover

Lurcher Clover has been waiting at Bristol Animal Rescue Centre for her forever home for almost 18 months. She’s an active and clever girl who loves spending time with people and playing with bouncy balls. She’s got a high chase instinct so will need to be kept on the lead when out walking but loves to run free in a secure garden or paddock. This loving and affectionate girl is looking for her perfect match and would ideally like an adult-only home without other pets.

RSPCA staff seek homes for lovable lurchers

Block Fen Animal Centre is trying to find the paw-fect matches for five lurchers who have been waiting a total of 28 months!

Five ‘lovable’ lurchers who are desperate to be loved are seeking fun-filled active homes to call their home.

Three-year-old Tiger-Lily was rescued by the RSPCA in May after being abandoned along with two friends. It’s believed they had all been used for hare coursing. Her two friends were soon rehomed but shy Tiger-Lily is still waiting for her forever home.

Tiger Lily

Tiger-Lily loves people and really enjoys spending time with her human friends and having a fuss. She walks nicely on the lead and is very well-mannered around people and other dogs. Running is her favourite thing so we’d love her to go to a home with another playful dog and a large, secure garden where she can run and run and run! This kind-hearted girl would like an experienced home without children or small furry pets as she does like to chase. And she’d benefit from training and teaching, slowly, that it’s not scary to be home alone.

Tati

Tati is one and has never lived in a home before. She’s a sweet girl who craves love and attention but takes her time to bond and get to know people. She’d like patient owners who can help her settle and gain confidence. She’d like to live with someone who is around for much of the day and can slowly teach her how to be home alone. She’s very clever and already knows lots of commands but would like to learn more to keep her busy!

Suzie

And one-year-old Suzie is shy at first but soon shows her cheeky side once she’s around people she trusts. She can be scared of sudden sounds or movements and it’s taken her time to be confident out on walks so she needs understanding owners who can help continue her training. She really comes out of her shell with a friend so would love to live with another dog who she can run and play with.

Mila

Three-year-old Mila is a sweet girl who has never lived in a home before and will need help to adjust and adapt to a new way of living. She has always been around other dogs so would like a canine chum to play with and learn from. She’s very playful and cheeky but is nervous around new people. She’d like an experienced owner who can help build her confidence and a large, secure enclosed garden.

Tags:

Esme

One-year-old Esme has never experienced a normal family home so will need time to settle in and learn how it all works. She is always on the go and loves fuss and attention but can be shy at first so needs time to get to know new people. She gets on well with other dogs so would like a doggy friend in her new home. She’d be best with owners who are experienced with nervous dogs and in a home without other pets and with older children.
