NEW homes are desperately needed for some long-stay animals currently in the care of the RSPCA Peterborough and District Branch.
December was a really good re-homing month for the branch, but there are still an unlucky few animals that are urgently seeking a new family.
Milo, a black, grey and white cat, has been in the centre since July and is one of the animals that is in most desperate need for a new home.
He came in to the RSPCA in very poor condition but thankfully he has put on weight after receiving good care in a private boarding facility and staff are hoping he will be adopted as soon as possible.
Staff say Milo is a cat with a fantastic personality who will make a very rewarding pet, and is just longing for a loving family to take him home.
RSPCA Peterborough and District Branch manager Paul Markley said: “It is really sad for Milo to still be waiting for a home after all this time. He really is a very friendly cat; he is only three years old and still has a lot of love to give to any new family that wants him.
“If there are people in the area that are thinking about getting a new pet I would strongly recommend that they come and see us first and see the animals that we are looking after.
“It is very rewarding to give a desperate animal a fresh start and a new home, and the animals in our care are just looking for somebody to love and care for them.
“If anyone out there thinks they can give Milo or any of our other animals a home then they are more than welcome to get in contact and have a look.”
Other long-stay animals in need of a home include Pixie, who is a very affectionate and quite vocal cat. She is a domestic short-hair crossbreed who is about 11 years old; she has been in the centre for about three months.
Also in need of a new home are guinea pigs Billy and Benny. At first it was clear they had not handled much, but since coming into the care of the branch they have blossomed in the care of fosterers.
And finally Ken the ferret is also looking for a new home. He came into RSPCA care in November.
