CATS, dogs and rabbits in Dorset are all in need of forever homes.

Margaret Green Animal Rescue, which has two shelters in the county, has given details of some of the animals who need re-homing.

April the cat is five-years-old and is described by staff at the Church Knowle centre as a “very sweet and affectionate girl” – but the five-year-old feline “knows her own mind” and will tell you if she has had enough attention.

She is looking for an adult-only home where she is the only pet.

Puss is one of the centre’s older residents at 10-years-old. He is also described as “very sweet” and is looking for a forever home as his previous owner was no longer able to care for him.

He would need to be in a home with no other pets and no young children.

Rabbits Wyatt and Willow are brothers and around one-year-old. They are looking for a new home with someone who doesn’t mind giving them some medication now and again as they have pasteurella (the snuffles) and can have bouts of sneezing when stressed.

Frankie is an “adorable” seven-year-old Yorkshire Terrier who is looking for a quiet, adult-only home where he would be the only pet.

He would also be best suited to a home where he would not be left by himself for long periods.

Frankie enjoys going out for walks as he is a “very active little chap”, staff at the Lincoln Farm centre say.

Jack Russell Ollie is six-years-old and is described as a “lovely, active little character who enjoys nothing more than a long walk and play in the great outdoors”.

Staff say he loves running around with his furry four-legged friends but would prefer to be the only pet in the home.

Maisy, who is also a terrier, is 13-years-old and is looking for a comfy sofa to sleep on in a quiet home with no children under the age of 16-years-old.

Although she gets on well with his canine pals at Lincoln Farm, she would prefer to be the only pet in his new home.
