A LIVELY lurcher and cuddly cat are among the animals at a Dorset rescue centre who are now looking for their forever homes.

Margaret Green Animal Rescue, which has two rescue shelters in the county, has revealed the details of the latest animals in its care.

Ozzy, Tom, and India are three felines in need of new families.

Seven-year-old Ozzy is described as a “very affectionate, laid back boy” by the rescue centre staff.

He is looking for a forever home with his best friend Ollie.

He has had a few medical problems, but the staff will talk any prospective owner through these.

Ozzy and Ollie would need to be the only pets in a quiet home.

Tom is six years old and is also said to be a “very sweet, affectionate boy” who also likes spending time outdoors too.

He should be fine to live with older children and possibly a quiet cat or friendly dog.

India, who is around eight years old, is also in need of a forever home as, up until recently, she was a stray.

Staff say she is “very timid”, but “loves a fuss once she gets to know you”.

She is looking for a home with no other pets or young children.

Three dogs in need of re-homing are Taffie, Violet, and Dash.

Taffie, 12, is a Staffordshire Bull Terrier who “loves a good run but also loves cuddles”, according to Margaret Green Animal Rescue.

She could live with a male dog and possibly cats and children over 10 years old.

She is also deaf but “doesn’t let this stop her”.

Violet, a “very sweet” three-year-old female Lurcher is looking for a home with children over the age of eight and, preferably, without cats or small furry animals.

She loves to play with her four-legged friends so she could live with another dog.

Finally, Dash, who is just one year old, lives up to his name and loves to run around. He is therefore looking for an active family with children over the age of five.

He can live with another dog but not with cats.
