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, someone always wants 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.

Jock is a Jack Russell Terrier who is described as having enough "energy to power a small village" and is always up for a walk or playing with toys.

He is quite flexible in what sort of home he could go to as an adult-only one or one with older children would work for him.

Jock is also described as being "well-mannered" on a lead and "polite to his fellow canine walkers".

Danaher Animal Home adds: "Now, who wouldn't want a four-legged mate who’s as friendly and outgoing as Jock? This lad’s all about companionship and won’t be fond of spending long stretches alone, so he’s perfect for someone with time to spare."

"She’s the perfect companion for someone who appreciates the subtle nuances of a cat's love and understands the delicate dance of earning a skittish cat’s trust."
