Could We Bring Some Love To Your Life This Valentine's Day?

Feb 10, 2016

With Valentine’s Day fast approaching, we here at the centre, have lots of animals with plenty of love to give who sadly just haven’t found their forever homes yet! So we thought what better time of year would there be for you to fall in love with one of our longest stay animals!


This beautiful girl is Polly! Polly came to us when sadly her previous owner could no longer take care of her due to illness within the family. When she came to the shelter – Polly was petrified as she had never spent time in kennels before and had always had a family home to call her own. She would bark and hide away in her kennel, she didn’t want to eat or play with her toys but after some hard work and dedication from the staff – Polly began to come round and now you wouldn’t think she was the same dog! She does still feel wary of new people in front of her kennel so please if you are interested; ask to see her out in the yard as she is a completely different dog! Polly is loving and affectionate and incredibly loyal as once she trusts you she bonds for life! She is very intelligent and knows all of her basic commands however she will need some training on the lead as she gets so excited she doesn’t realise how much she is pulling! Polly also finds other dogs very exciting and this can become stressful for her as she wasn’t socialised as a puppy and so will need to be your only pet. She would be fine with children who were over the age of ten and used to living with bouncy dogs and will make an excellent playmate or running buddy! She loves to run and chase her ball. Polly adores people and so a home where she wouldn’t be left for long would be ideal. Please, if you feel you have the time and patience for a girl with plenty of potential – enquire today as you won’t be disappointed! 



This big fella is called Troy and he came to the centre after being collected by an RSPCA inspector. He had been a stray in one area for a long time and sadly he had developed a bad case of ear mites that had caused some pretty nasty sores! Troy was obviously scared and unsure when he arrived, he was in pain and wasn’t used to human attention and so it took some tender care and patience from the staff to earn his trust. He is still a little shy when he first meets you but a couple of tasty treats later and he will happily accept some fuss! Troy truly deserves to be shown what it is like to be a well-loved pet and would like a quiet home to call his own. We feel that he should be the only pet and that there should be no young children in the home as this way he can have all of your attention to himself! Can you make his dream a reality?



This is Mollie and she has been with us the longest out of these 3! She is a nice bunny who is okay with people and doesn’t mind being handled although she doesn’t settle for long and so will need a patient and understanding owner with no young children. Mollie isn’t looking for love this valentines as she unfortunately doesn’t get along with other rabbits so would need to be the only pet however we are sure a patient caring owner would do just fine! She is always making the staff smile with her funny antics and is sure to brighten your day! Mollie will make a lovely rabbit for the right home so please if you feel you could offer her a second chance – don’t delay – contact us for more details. 


If any of these animals sound like they could be the right fit for your family, share the love and contact us today- a loving furry friend is here waiting for you! Remember you can always visit our rehoming pages online to see all of the animals desperate for loving homes.
