A playful puppy and a pair of long-haired bunnies are among the animals hoping to be rehomed at a rescue center in Norfolk.
East Coast Pet Rescue is a small, self-funded rescue group that aims to rescue and rehabilitate animals in need.
A spokesperson for East Coast Pet Rescue said: “The animals in our care are cared for in a family environment until they find their forever home.
“We have a lot of animals on our waiting list, so we hope to find families for the animals that are now ready to be housed.”
Here are some of the pets currently looking for homes.
1. Jalapeno, male dog
“Jalapeno, or Pino for short, is 18 months old and requires an experienced owner who can continue training.
“He would suit someone who doesn’t have other animals, however, he could possibly live with another sociable dog.
“Pino will need plenty of exercise and someone who is home most of the day.
“He is not suitable to be relocated with children under the age of five.”
2. Strawberry and mint, female bunnies
“Strawberry and Mint are a pair of rabbits who need a home together.
“They are used to living outdoors and as always they will need accommodation with plenty of space.”
3. Marigold and Honeysuckle, cats
“Marigold, who is two, and Honeysuckle, who is one, are new arrivals and just got spayed this week.
“They are nervous and shy cats and will therefore need calm, patient homes and plenty of time to develop their confidence.”
4. Handsome, male dog
“Beau is three years old and will need an experienced owner who can continue his training.
“In his foster home, he lives with other dogs who put him in his place to be a little excitable, which he graciously accepted.
“Beau needs a lot of exercise as he is a very playful boy and for this reason he is not suitable to be relocated with young children.”
5. Muffin and Crumpet, female rabbits
“Muffin and Crumpet are another related pair of bunny rabbits.
“They are both very sweet and friendly and will make great pets.
“They are currently used to living outdoors but were previously house rabbits.”
6. Bing and Crosby, long-haired rabbits
“Bing and Crosby are related brothers who are looking for an interior home.
“They have long hair so will require regular grooming to keep their coats matt.
“As with all rabbits, they will need plenty of space, and when the weather warms up they can be introduced to an outdoor area.”
7. Vixen and Comet, cats
“This mother-son duo is looking for a kind and patient owner.
“They are both very shy and can take months to become confident in their new home.
“The pair would suit a quiet, indoors-only home where they will be the only pets”
8. Blossom, long-haired cat
“Blossom is a three-year-old long-haired cat looking for an indoor home.
“She is happy to be in the company of people but is not a lap-cat and only likes occasional stories on her terms.
“Her fur is very long and mats easily in areas she won’t let you brush, so she requires professional grooming about 3 times a year.”
9. Bluebell and Tulip, female guinea pigs
“This pair of bonded guinea pigs are about two years old.
“They are currently living apart and could be linked to another female if anyone had one.”
All cats, dogs and rabbits at the center are neutered and microchipped before being rehomed and all adoptions are subject to a successful home visit and adoption fee.
