Several 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 - Two years old

Breed - Crossbreed/unknown

Colour - Brown

Miles came into the care of the RSPCA after being removed from a large multi-dog household.

It is unlikely he has had much experience of a life outside the one home and garden.

He is looking to find a new home with adopters who are patient and understanding as he needs to adjust to being in a regular home environment.

The RSPCA adds: "Due to the unknown contact with children in their previous home, we are looking for a home where any children are dog confident older teens."

Finn came into the care of the RSPCA from the same multi-dog household that Nero was in.

As a result, he will need patient and understanding adopters so he can get used to a regular home environment.

At first, Finn was quite nervous about meeting new people and walking on leads but has gained confidence over time.

Quincy came into the care of the RSPCA after a member of the public sadly found him abandoned in a carrier.

He was very wary at first and whilst he has improved a bit he still prefers being stroked on his terms.

Quincy could live in a home with children aged 14 years or older as well as with a friendly cat or dog given enough time and space.

Gender - Male

Age - 13 years old

Breed - Domestic Shorthair crossbreed

Colour - Black and White

Skittles is described as an "affectionate older cat" who is looking to find his forever home.

He initially came into Ashley Heath due to a welfare concern and arrived with a fractured pelvis and other health issues.

The RSPCA adds: "Skittles is not currently on any medication however, as with any older cat, potential adopters must be aware that he is at the later stages of his life and may need further support in the future."

He could possibly live with a dog or cat that's used to other cats, given time and space to get to know each other.

Bluey

Bluey is described as being "sociable" with other dogs and when meeting new people.

He knows some basic commands and although generally walks reasonably well on the lead, he can be strong at times.

The RSPCA adds: "Bluey is looking for a home where he will have access to a garden to enjoy laying in the sunshine.

"After his assessment here we feel he may be ok to live with dog-confident children 16 years+ but cannot live with cats."

Trevor is described as a "sweet" rabbit who is "hoping to find his new forever home with a female rabbit for company".

He has been shown to appreciate his freedom in running around the garden and house, so would not suit living in a hutch all the time.

Trevor has previously lived as an indoor rabbit.
