Travis the cat, Bruno the dog and Pomegranate the hamster are this week’s trio of homeless pets at RSPCA Southridge looking for new owners in the Welwyn Hatfield Times Potters Bar Edition’s Find Me A Home appeal.

• Bruno is a gorgeous three-year-old Staffordshire Bull Terrier who came to Southridge from another centre.

A spokeswoman for the RSPCA centre in Packhorse Lane, Ridge, said: “Bruno is a very active, boisterous dog who loves his walks and to play ball games.

“He also has a cuddly, soft side and loves spending time with the staff and volunteers at the centre.”


Bruno will need an active, adult-only, pet-free home with owners who will take him to training and socialisation classes.

“Bruno is a charming boy with a lot of love to give who really does deserve his forever home,” added the RSPCA spokeswoman.

• Travis is a beautiful four-year-old domestic shorthair cat who finds himself at Southridge as his owner became ill.

The Southridge spokeswoman said: “He is a sweet boy who can be a little nervous at first, but once out of his shell is an affectionate, playful chap.

“Travis has previously lived with another cat and a dog, although would prefer to be the only cat but could live with a dog.”

As he is a little shy, he can live with calm, older children of 15 plus and will require access to a secure garden for exploring.

• Pomegranate is a young female Russian hamster who was signed over to Southridge by her owner.

She is a lovely girl who could live with children of seven years plus.

Pomegranate will need a large cage or tank with plenty of toys for enrichment and regular handling and cleaning out.
