The Peterborough Telegraph is running regular spotlights on dogs that need new homes to support the work of animal charities in the Peterborough area.
The Peterborough and District Branch of the RSPCA do so much to rescue, nurture and subsequently rehome dogs in the area. They have continued to operate throughout lockdown and within a small radius are still permitted to rehome these animals.
Below are a selection of those that have been rescued and are in need of their forever home.
To find more details on each dog and to search for more rescue animals, visit www.rspca.org.uk/findapet/rehomeapet/process.
The RSPCA are funded entirely by public donations and receive no government money and therefore rely on the generosity of the public. Anyone wishing to support their work do so via www.rspca.org.uk/getinvolved/donate.
This sweet soul is Wiggy. We don't know a great deal about his background, but when he arrived it was clear that he had been through a lot. Despite all his problems though, his sweet and gentle nature shone through. Due to his medical needs he has been staying with a foster family. Wiggy is now on anti-inflammatory medication for his back legs, which has allowed him a whole new lease of life.
2. Bonnie and Rosie
Bonnie (white) and Rosie (tan and white) are currently in a foster home. They have been learning the ways of being in a home and their fosterer has been working super hard with them to help them feel comfortable. Bonnie and Rosie are not house trained at the moment, however it is going well. It is clear that there is nothing these two would rather do then spend their days together! They are not used to being left for long periods of time and so would love someone around a lot of the day!
Paris is such a lovely girl; Gentle giant really does fit her personality. When it comes to fuss, she knows what she wants, and she is not afraid to ask. She shared her previous home with another dog, so she might appreciate having another friendly dog in the home, but she is so human focused that it's not a 'must'.
Snowy is a 15 year old Terrier female, looking for an active retirement home. Finding yourself homeless can be very upsetting for any dog, let alone one of her ripe old age. But after a bit of a bumpy settling-in period, Snowy has settled into her new routine happily.
