Help Thor, Loki and Spice find love in a new home this Valentine's Day
Blue Cross centres in Torbay and Tiverton, Devon, are calling for pet lovers to give pets who’ve been there the longest or aren’t as confident a chanceby Lewis Clarke
This Valentine’s Day, Blue Cross rehoming centres up and down the country are hoping cupid’s arrow finds perfect homes for lonely pets.
Blue Cross centres in Torbay and Tiverton, Devon, are calling for pet lovers to give pets who’ve been there the longest or aren’t as confident a chance.
Charlotte Mullarkey, the animal welfare assistant in Tiverton, said: “They might be a bit shy or take a bit longer to show their affection, but giving a long-stay pet a happy home will be hugely rewarding.
“At Torbay, a cat called Spice longs for a loving home. Spice is a one-year-old long hair and has been at the centre for more than 145 days. She is a shy girl looking for a quiet home, with no other pets, in a semi-rural or rural area. Spice needs very patient owners for her to be able to build a bond with someone as she was previously a stray. Through all this, Spice is a very playful cat, so just needs owners who’re happy to give her a chance at love.
“At Tiverton, Thor and Loki are looking for a home together and have been waiting for more than 60 days. These degus are very active and curious and would love to have a home where they can play with lots of new toys and explore both in and outside their cage.
“Degus are very sociable pets and need to have the company of other degus and lots of stimulation to keep them happy. They love climbing and digging and sand bathing. Degus don’t like being lonely at any time, but especially on Valentine’s day and would love a new home to get settled into.”
