1. Oak the bunny
Oak is a Giant Flemish Rabbit (nope, we didn't know there was such a thing either, but we're so happy we do now) and he's waiting patiently to hopefully be awarded a deadly second home.
He's super friendly, would make an excellent pet for children and is fully water trained. He also loves his food, especially fresh grass, leaves, carrot and apples. A rabbit after our own hearts!

2. Bella the Labrador
Bella, meaning beauty, is the perfect name for this blonde bombshell, who is desperately searching for the perfect home.
She loves any kind of attention and affection she receives, and is suitable for any home that can give her loads of love and tonnes of walks. She is very good with children, other animals and being on a lead.

3. Percy the Collie/Spaniel cross
A beautiful dog with super glossy coat, Percy is a young collie/spaniel cross, between one and two years old. He gets on great with children and other dogs, although can be anxious when on his own – so would best suit a house already equipped with a pup.
Percy has been neutered, microchipped and vaccinated – more information here.
4. Daphne the Bearded Collie
Daphne is a gorgeous pooch, who is super sweet and affectionate - making a wonderful family pet. She is totally comfortable around other dogs, adores human interaction and is loads of fun all round.
Looking forward to a life of luxury and affection, Daphne is a house dog, but loves walkies.

5. Dorothy and George the kittens
Dorothy and George are lovely grey tabby cats, looking for a loving home. Both are litter-trained, social with other cats and can be re-homed with existing family cats for companionship, or each other.
6. Molly the kitten
Molly is a beautiful little kitten that is so ready to start a new life. Ideally, Molly would be re-homed her mum, to a quiet patient home as both are a little weary of humans.
Both are vaccinated and treated for parasites, litter trained and comfortable with other cats. For more information on these beauty queens, click here.
7. Chilli the Pomeranian
Chilli is a peppy little pup, looking for her own second chance. A diamond in the rough, Chilli is very affectionate but a little unsure of strangers, due to her tough start in life. A loving home and a little time to settle will find her growing into the most fantastic of family pets.
Totally at ease with other dogs and a big fan of walkies, Chilli would be perfect for any family. For more information, click here.
8. Ella and Halle the Labradors
Ella and Halle are two best friends searching for their perfect home. This gorgeous duo are super sweet and affectionate, who adore interacting with both humans and other dogs.
They come as a pair and must be re-homed together, as they've grown up together and dog love is real love.
They are great on-lead, fab off-lead, super clean and, with a little encouragement in their new home, will be fully house trained in no time. They are vaccinated, neutered and microchipped and will soon be ready for adoption. For more information, click here.
9. Mischka the Husky
Mischka, the beautiful husky pooch, was handed into the good people of the Kildare West-Wicklow SPCA along with her male companion, Kenzi, as their owner was no longer able to look after them.
A female husky of about five years old, Mischka is very friendly and easy to handle. Mischka and Kenzi have been together for some time, so it would be great if they could be re-homed together, but this is not essential. For more information, click here.
10. Stella the pony
Stella is a very fine heavy cob who is broken and riding. At approximately 14.2hh, she is your one-way ticket to feeling like you've been cast in A Streetcar Named Desire, and living out your childhood dreams, all in one.
She is currently in work and, although on the green side, is coming along nicely. She is gentle and easy to handle. For more information, click here.
11. Penny the cat
Penny is fully vaccinated and spayed. And even though she sometimes comes across as slightly nervous, a few minutes of petting her and she's all yours.
She's two years old, a Domestic Long Haired Cat, and has the eyes of a movie star. Also, have we mentioned THAT TAIL?
