A number of pets in Dorset are looking for their forever homes, including at the Ashley Heath Animal Centre.

Located on the border with Hampshire, the centre offers care for its animals in rural surroundings.

A few animals from the centre are listed below but more can be found on the centre's website.

To help the Ashley Heath Animal Centre carry on their work you can donate to their website here.

Gender - Male

Age - Five years old

Breed - Lurcher crossbreed

Colour - White/Tan

Scooby came into the care of the RSPCA after his welfare needs were not being met, so he is now looking for a new home.

As he may have not spent a lot of time in a conventional home he will need patient adopters who are happy to show him the ropes and help him with housetraining.

Scooby would need a home with a secure garden, free from cats and other small animals as typical to the breed he does have a prey drive.

He is described as "a friendly chap" though and gets on well with most dogs at the centre.

Gender - Male

Age - Six years old

Breed - Domestic Shorthair crossbreed

Colour - White and Black

Loki came into the care of the RSPCA after he was found living in cramped conditions with too many cats.

Ashley Heath reckons he may get used to living with a friendly cat given the time and space to settle, but no dogs.

It has been noticed that Loki gets very worried when hearing dogs at the centre, so preferably would go to a home with no neighbouring dogs.

Additionally, he is not to be rehomed within five miles of Keinton Mandeville (TA11).

Gender - Male

Age - Three to six months old

Breed - Domestic Shorthair crossbreed

Colour - Black

Little Pee-Wee Sherman was found on his own by the RSPCA, too young to be away from his mum.

He has since been cared for in a foster home and is ready to find a permanent new family.

Pee-Wee is described as being "playful" and "full of energy" as he loves to charge around.

He will require somebody around for most of the day for company and to help with socialising as he grows.

As he is a kitten the RSPCA thinks he could get used to another cat or dog given the time and space to settle.

Clover and Orchid are looking for a home together after being found in a multi-rabbit household.

The "inquisitive pair" are described as enjoying exploring and foraging, and are quite confident around people.

Due to being a lionhead, Clover will need regular brushing to ensure he does not get tangled or matted.
