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.

Ronnie came into the care of the centre after being rescued from less-than-ideal circumstances.

As a result, he may show some initial timidness in a new home but that will soon change.

Danaher Animal Home adds: "Ronnie's vitality knows no bounds, making him the perfect companion for an energetic family.

"Remember, though, that his quickness of paw means a secure garden would suit him best for those off-lead escapades, and a (long) lead would be better for out and about."
