RSPCA Find Me A Home: Jake and Barney


RSPCA Southridge officials are appealing for potential owners to come forward after two cats were cruelly dumped.


Jake and Barney are an attractive pair of six-month-old boys, who are looking for a loving home together after they were abandoned outside an office with little regard for their welfare.

A spokeswoman for RSPCA Southridge, Potters Bar, said: “Understandably, they are a little shy and will need time to settle and build trust in a calm environment.

“Jake is black and is the more timid of the two and Barney is the tabby and white one.

“Despite everything they have been through, Jake and Barney are still typical youngsters who enjoy playing, have lots of fun together and really do deserve a fresh start.”

A homeless dog and a ferret are also looking for new owners at the South Mimms animal centre.

Nore is a charming and adorable eight-year-old Staffordshire Bull Terrier crossbreed who only has one eye.

He was transferred to Southridge from another branch and, since arriving at the Packhorse Lane centre, has the won the hearts of many of the staff and volunteers.

A spokeswoman for the centre said: “Nore is a pleasure to take out for walks and to spend time with as he is gentle and affectionate.

“He has already spent more than enough time in kennels and so it would it really would be lovely if he found his forever home soon. He would like to be the only pet.”

Connor is a one-year-old cheeky, albino ferret who is looking for a new home.

He would like a large enclosure with lots tunnels of and toys to investigate and a cosy bed to snuggle up in. As he is slightly overweight, he is currently on a diet.

He is suitable to live with other ferrets, although he may prefer a female companion.
