Lonely Lurcher Set To Face Second Christmas In A Row Without A Home
Rex, a four-year-old lurcher, is described as a 'fabulous chap' who is 'desperate' to find a new home.
An RSPCA spokesperson said: "Rex is facing his second Christmas in kennels.
"This lovely, friendly lad has been with the RSPCA for a staggering 532 days and is desperate to find the paw-fect home this Christmas.
"He's a lively pooch who enjoys long walks and would love to find an active family to take him on.
"He'd benefit from some further training and he loves learning new things. This sensitive lad has a few allergies and has a special diet.
"He'd like to be the only pet but could live with a family with older children."
Rex isn't the only lurcher in need of a home this Christmas, though.
Two-year-old Cecil was found as a stray and is apparently finding life in the kennels difficult.
An RSPCA spokesperson said: "He's a wonderful dog, funny and sweet. He's loyal and happy, gentle and quirky.
"He loves a fuss and is incredibly bright, learning new tricks really quickly. Cecil needs experienced owners and would like an adult-only home."
Cecil lives in the Eau Brink Rehoming Centre, West Norfolk, and you can find out more about adopting him by clicking here or calling 01553 618889.
If you should so happen to have the land to look after a horse, then you could be just the person Hope is looking for. She has spent the majority of her life in the care of the RSPCA, having been rescued as a foal in 2014.
The thoroughbred was only hours from death at the time and was too weak to stand - 2,119 days on, and she is still looking for a home.
A spokesperson said: "She may be able to be ridden in the future or could be a companion horse.
"She's incredibly friendly, loves attention, enjoys being groomed and would be great for in-hand work."
If you think you might be able to give Hope hope, click here or call RSPCA Southridge Animal Centre, in Hertfordshire, on 0300 123 0704.
There are, of course, many more animals in shelters across the land in need of a new home. If you are unable to adopt an animal, then you can still help the charity by donating here.
