RSPCA Chronicle: Thank you for your support throughout the year


Ashley, Hilary and Luna are just a few of the animals looking for their forever homes

By Paul Gibson

The end of the year is in sight and we can’t believe we’re already well into 12 days of Christmas! We are very grateful to everyone who supported us throughout the year; for all donations for our animals and those who chose to adopt and gave a second chance at happiness to so many cats and dogs.

Fortunately, we were able to organize our Christmas and summer fairs this year, as well as two big raffles to raise essential funds for the Animal Center. We have continued to fight all Covid-19 restrictions and pursue adoptions for cats and dogs, while ensuring that all of our staff and volunteers are safe and able to continue their hard work in caring for animals.

We are ending the year with 11 cats and five dogs currently looking for their new homes, and we will have more available in the coming days.


First up, we have Jack, a nine year old Border Collie. He is a happy, lucky boy who needs an experienced adult-only home with no other pets. We have found that Jack enjoys going out for his daily walks and cuddling, he enjoys being around people and looking for a home to grow old in.


We also have Luna, a two year old German Shepherd. She is a lively girl who needs an active home, with experienced shepherd owners. She needs time, patience and training in her new home. Luna requires an adult-only pet-free home. Luna has been looking for her home for a little while now, we hope 2022 will be her lucky year!

On the cats we have a lovely pair called Ashley and Hilary who are shy 10 month old sisters looking for a calm patient owner and a home to call their own. They love food, so it is definitely a way to get into their hearts.

Ashley and Hilary

Ashley and Hilary are with a few months now but are still two very scared shy girls who unfortunately don’t like to be manipulated. They need homeowners who will be able to provide them with a safe space and have a hands-off approach that gives them time to adjust. These girls need a lot of TLC

We also have Arlo; he is a confident happy boy who loves everyone he meets. We have found Arlo to be a huge hit in the cattery enjoying hugs from all the staff and volunteers. As soon as we pop our heads to say hello, he purrs and eagerly comes over to you, ready for a bang.


We are looking for a house with owners who will be a lot for Arlo as he is a social boy who thirsts for company. Arlo could be housed with a cat friendly dog ​​and children six and up. Arlo has suffered from feline flu in the past, and anyone wishing to adopt Arlo is advised to research feline flu first.

Finally, we also have Pugsley who is a scared four year old boy who is known to hiss at people when opening the door of his capsule; because he is very afraid. We find that having food or treats helps.


Pugsley will let you stroke him for some tasty food in return, the food is definitely his heart’s path. We are looking for a quiet home with a patient and knowledgeable owner who is often home to spend time socializing. Children must be 14 years of age and over and no other pets.
