RSPCA Column: Could you give a home to Luna, Molly, Gok or Freddie?
By Paul Gibson
First of all, we would like to thank everyone who came and supported our recent Christmas fair; to all visitors to the fair, stand holders, companies who donated raffle prizes and volunteers who helped organize the day and the raffle.
Without everyone coming together, we wouldn’t be able to organize events like this and raise crucial funds for the Animal Center. Once again, thank you all and we hope to see you all at our next events in 2022.
Meanwhile, here at the Animal Center, we have seen many animals that have been taken in over the past few weeks. However, a few have been neglected and are still in search of their forever homes.
First, we have the beautiful Luna who is a two year old German Shepherd. We need experienced owners for her who have already had a shepherd or the like.
Luna’s new owners will need to be patient and willing to devote time and work to Luna, so that she can grow into a confident and well-rounded girl. Luna enjoys walking around, although we find that she can pull quite hard on the leash. She needs more training.
Luna can be nervous when meeting new people and exploring new environments. New owners will need to take it slow and avoid putting her in situations that she may not be able to cope with, such as walking her in high traffic areas with lots of other dogs running off leash. Luna must be the only pet in an adult-only household.
Second, in the cattery we have the beautiful Molly, who has been with us for 150 days and continues. Molly searches for her forever home as a domestic cat. We are looking for owners who understand the different enrichment and feeding needs of a domestic cat. Molly also needs an adults-only home with no other pets. Molly is a long haired cat and will need regular grooming to keep her coat in peak condition.
We also have the handsome Gok, who is a five year old boy looking for a home for himself. We have found Gok to be a very friendly and confident boy who appreciates a lot of affection and will be happy to sit down when he receives scratches on his head.
Gok is an independent boy who likes to hang out in his group. Gok will work best in a home with older children (12+) without other pets.
Finally, we also have Freddie, a three year old boy. Freddie is a carrier of the feline immunodeficiency virus (FIV) and for this reason he must be a house cat, which means he cannot go outside, because if he did, he would risk infecting other cats.
We discovered that Freddie was a nervous boy, who needed a quiet home without other animals.
To help Freddie settle into his new home, his new owners will need to provide him with safe spaces, where he can rest and spend time alone whenever he wants. Once Freddie gets to know you, he’ll pick up some treats from you. We find it a good way to build a relationship with him. Recently we found Freddie stepping out of his pod to greet those he knows.
If you think you can provide a warm and loving home for Freddie, Gok, Molly or Luna, please see our website for a Perfect Match application form. The fastest way to send us your application is by email.
Once we have received your application, we will contact you.
