The RSPCA is appealing for homes for these gorgeous Georges

With the national day for England on the horizon we are hoping the great British public can help give the animals in our care a loving home.

Two year old Georgie was originally called George until it was discovered that she is actually a female.  Georgie was rescued by our inspectors when she was found trapped behind the wall of a 16th century pub – called the George and Dragon.  She was not microchipped so her owners could not be traced and she is now at our Leybourne centre looking for a new home.

This George is a Pointer cross who enjoys his daily long walks and training sessions. He is friendly and needs an owner who can give him all the training he deserves. He is at our South Godstone Centre. Do you think you could give him a loving home?

Our lovely rabbit George was found as a stray but has settled in well into his foster home. One-year-old Dwarf Lop George is hoping to find his forever home soon, he is in our Leeds Wakefield District Branch.

This George is a handsome three-year-old cob who will be around 12.2-13hh when fully grown. Sadly George was found emaciated along with a number of other horses. He is good to handle and loves a fuss and a groom. He is vaccinated, microchipped and passported, but is just waiting for his new home.

Eight year old Staffordshire Bull Terrier George came in after his elderly owner died. He was a much loved dog, so is very friendly and loves human company. He loves his walks but is just as happy at home snuggling up with you. He is fine left on his own for a few hours. George was at at our Macclesfield, South East Cheshire and Buxton branch but is currently in a foster home.

And where would our George’s be without the famous legend of the dragon?

This Bearded Dragon was brought in to our RSPCA Brighton Animal Centre after he was abandoned.

Fed on a diet of locusts and vegetables he is now ready for rehoming, along with five other bearded dragons also in RSPCA care.

Manager of the reptile unit at RSPCA Brighton Keith Simpson-Wells said: “People do not realise the commitment involved in keeping reptiles before they take something like that on.

“We encourage people to rehome a rescued reptile rather than buying one. That way we can give them the right advice, make sure the vivarium they keep it in is the right size and that they have other equipment, such as heat lamps and the correct lighting, as well.”
