Star - collie cross






Star is a 10-year-old black and white collie cross.   Lovely natured and well trained. She loves the countryside and walks and is well behaved on and off the lead. She is in good health. Sadly her owner's circumstances have changed and he cannot keep her.  We are trying to rehome her direct from him. She gets on with children and other dogs.   Has not lived with a cat but could possibly with careful introductions

Heidi







Sweet 16 week old Heidi was living rough and found with a poorly eye.   Healed up well just left with slightly cloudy eye.  She now needs a home with someone around a lot to give her company and/or another young cat to play with.

Benedict



This handsome lad is only about a year old and needs a new home because his owner sadly passed away.  He is a very friendly, nice natured boy.

He is having treatment for a sore eye and being neutered shortly.  Should be ready for a new home in a week or two.

Tilly - Puppy - Reserved

This sweet 14 week old Staffordshire Bull Terrier crossbreed urgently needs a foster home.   But could be fostered by someone interested in giving her a permanent home. 
She has fractured her leg.  This has been pinned but unfortunately the pin has moved. The fracture site is stable, so Tilly the puppy is on strict crate rest for a month - with no jumping and running allowed - before being taken back to the vet in a months time for a further xray to see  if the pin can be removed.  

As you can imagine crate resting a lively puppy is not the easiest thing!  But she has been very good, and adapted to her restricted lifestyle well.  

We are looking for a calm foster home for her 
- without any other dogs (she would not be able to mix with other dogs as she just wants to play with them. A very old calm dog  that didn't want to play might be ok), 
- within reach of the RSPCA clinic in case its needed and the vet school so she can be taken to her follow up appointment in a month, 
- with someone home for most of the day.  

As she needs to be crated except when let out on lead for toilet breaks, company, mental stimulation and safe enrichment in the form of food toys, training games that don't require a lot of movement will be very important.   You will be provided with crate and all the necessary equipment and food and any other necessary expenses are covered by the RSPCA.

Shadow - REHOMED






 Shadow is a shy but playful young cat, she was found as a stray with a broken pelvis and leg. She has had an operation to fix these problems and her only outward sign of this is a slight limp and a wobble when she jumps. These are likely to improve with time as the muscles and bone gain strength. There is a slightly higher than average chance of her developing arthritis as she becomes a senior cat but other than that there are no ongoing health concerns with her. At first, she was incredibly traumatised; she was fearful of everyone and everything but she has quickly adapted to a home life incredibly well and now begs for attention the moment you sit down. Shadow will likely be very shy when she goes to a new home and will need owners who will take the time to let her get to know them on her terms. She would prefer a home without kids or perhaps with older children who know that she needs space initially. We expect that when she comes out of her shell fully she will be a very cuddly and occasionally playful cat with a hint of mischief about her. Shadow currently lives with a small dog and although scared of the dog at first, now gets along well. She also lives with rodents and has shown little interest in them. Shadow has not lived with any other cats but we think she could live with other cats, given her behaviour around the dog. There would need to be slow introductions to any animal she is to live with because she is likely to be very cautious to begin with. Once Shadow gets to know you, you've got a friend for life! She loves to snuggle next to her fosterers whenever possible and will occasionally try to groom them! She can be a little too enthusiastic with her claws and teeth when playing but she has never used them when scared.
