Numerous pets from around Essex are looking for their forever homes - could you help them out?

Whether you want to adopt a dog, cat, rabbit, guinea pig or hamster, there are usually some who want to find a new owner.

There are several RSPCA branches in the county, along with the affiliated Danaher Animal Home.

If you think you would be able to rehome one of them, go to either the Essex South, Southend & District branch, the South West branch, or the Danaher Animal Home websites for details.

You can also donate to the charities and help them carry on their rescue work at the same websites.

Katniss came into the care of Danaher Animal Home with her sister Rue and is now looking for a forever home of her own.

Ideally, she would go to a home that has had experience with the Malinois breed before.

She could live with children over the age of 12, but not with a cat as she is still learning boundaries.

Luna is described as a "proper people-cat" who loves a bit of affection and has a lot of charm.

She enjoys her peace and quiet but also has an adventurous streak, so access to a garden would be useful.

Danaher Animal Home adds: "Her trust is a priceless gift she’s ready to share – slowly at first, with a tender fuss as she gets to know you. Give her a bit of grace, and she’ll be your devoted pal in no time."

Blue is a dog who is said to have had a "wobbly start in life" but is also a "bundle of potential that's just itching to blossom" under the right guidance.

Ideally, Blue would go to an adult-only home or one with some "dog-savvy older children".

Danaher Animal Home adds: "He may need a bit of help on his house manners, but that's your chance to bond and earn a place in his big, loyal heart. Think of it as the ultimate 'teach a dog new tricks' experience."
