Can you help Jack the Jack Russell Terrier find a loving new home?

Jack the dog, Tara the cat, and ferrets Doris and Dotty are this week’s pets looking for new homes in our regular RSPCA Southridge appeal.

Sweet Jack is a male Jack Russell Terrier who is nine years young!

A spokeswoman for the RSPCA centre in Packhorse Lane said: “Sadly Jack finds himself at Southridge due to his elderly owner becoming too ill to look after him anymore.

“Despite being a slightly older gentleman, Jack is still active and really enjoys his walks.”

The Southridge spokeswoman added: “He is a friendly character who loves attention and would love to cuddle with his special person.

“We are looking for a quiet, older active home for Jack where he will be the only pet.”

• Beautiful Tara is a female six-year-old domestic shorthair crossbreed.

“Tara is looking for a new home as her owner was no longer able to keep her,” said the RSPCA spokeswoman.


“Tara is finding life difficult at Southridge as she is suffering from anxiety, but she is making improvements.

“She really needs to find a special, loving adult home where she will be the only pet.”

The Southridge spokeswoman added: “She really loved her previous owner and we need to find a special person who will be patient and allow Tara to be her true loving self once again.”

Doris and Dotty are two nine-month-old female ferrets.

They are a sweet pair and enjoy playing together and exploring all their toys.

Ferrets are social and intelligent animals, and need a spacious environment with lots of enrichment.

• If you are interested in rehoming any of the animals featured this week, the RSPCA centre in Ridge, Potters Bar, is open from 11am to 4.15pm Monday, Tuesday, Thursday, Friday and Saturday.

Southridge is also open on Sundays from 1pm to 4.15pm.
