A DORSET animal rescue charity is hoping to find loving new homes for these cats and dogs.

Staff at Margaret Green Animal Rescue care for a range of pets.

This week, they are looking to re-home Missie, a 10-year-old cat who was very poorly with cat flu a while ago but is now fully recovered.

She is described as “very independent” and does not like a lot of fuss, but enjoys being around people.

Freddie, an 11-year-old feline, is a “very sweet and affectionate girl” – until she has to be taken to the vets.

She really enjoys a fuss and should be fine to live with a dog and older children.

Rolo, a five-year-old cat, is looking for a forever home with no other pets or small children. She is a “sweet girl” and would like a quiet home with someone to make a fuss of her most of the time as she enjoys being around people.

Three dogs looking for new homes are Kipper, Birdie, and Nicky.

One-year-old Jack Russell Kipper is “full of fun” and loves to play. He has a lot of energy so would like a fairly active home. He would be happy living with other dogs, children and possibly a cat.

Birdie, a 10-year-old female terrier, is described as a “sweet, affectionate girl” who is looking for a home where she’ll have cuddles and lots of leisurely strolls. She would prefer a quieter, adult-only home where she is the only pet and with a family who have terrier experience.

Four-year-old greyhound Nicky loves cuddles and enjoys running around with her fellow sighthounds. She would prefer to live with slightly older children and, as she is an ex-racer, not with cats or small furry animals.
