The Peterborough Telegraph is running regular spotlights on animals that need new homes to support the work of animal charities in the Peterborough area.
There are many that do such a great job of rescuing and rehoming animals, such as the Peterborough and District Branch of the RSPCA and Wood Green The Animals Charity. Both have continued to operate throughout lockdown and within a small radius are still permitted to rehome these animals.
Below are a selection of those farmyard animals that have been rescued and are in need of their forever home.
To find more details on each horse and to search for more rescue animals, visit www.rspca.org.uk/findapet/rehomeapet/process or to enquire about the chickens visit woodgreen.org.uk/find-a-pet/find-an-outdoor-pet.
5. Ffion - Welsh Pony (5 years)
Ffion is good to catch, groom and lead she is a sensitive pont that requires a quiet approch. Ffion is good for the vet and farrier but will look to her handler to give her the confidence she needs. She is currently living out with 6 other mares and gets on well with tehm all. She has learnt to wear a rug and is happy to stand in a stable if required.
6. Helen - Middleweight cob (10 years)
Helen has been given the award of the pony with the most unsuitable name! She thinks she should have been called Beauty , Misty or Queenie - Helen, She says is not a name for a horse! She arrived at Southridge in December with her field companion Dolly. She is a middleweight cob and is 9 years old . When Helen was rescued by the RSPCA, She was in foal. Her foal is now fully weaned and Helen is looking for her forever home. She has a beautiful temperament although. She is nervous until she gets to know you. Helen only has one eye and you need to approach her slowly and make her aware of your presence when you approach her but she is a real trooper and copes with it really well.
7. Gregory Peck - Amber Star Hybrid (2 years)
Gregory Peck came to Woodgreen as a single cockerel and has since been matched with a lovely flock of hens. He is a wonderful young male at only 10 months old and would love nothing more than a new home in a nice rural area where noise isn't an issue.
8. Liberaci - Leghorn (10 months)
Similar to all animals finding themselves at Wood Green, I am looking for my loving forever home.
