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 these charities and help them carry on their rescue work at the same websites.

Nala is a dog who came into the care of the RSPCA after her loving family had to give her up due to a change in personal circumstances.

She can find certain situations quite overwhelming, and she can be a bit reserved when meeting new people.

However, it is hoped that with plenty of kindness and patience, Nala will soon get used to her new circumstances and be a great companion to another family.

She could live with another calm dog pending an introduction and any children in the home would need to be over the age of 12 years old.

Grace is described as having a friendly and affectionate nature who loves meeting new people during her walks.

She enjoys her independence around other dogs so she would do best in an adult-only home without any other pets.

Danaher Animal Home adds: "She's such a lovebug that she sometimes guards her human's attention, which means she'll do best with a single owner who has experience dealing with resource guarding. Grace is a smart cookie, and with consistent guidance, she can flourish."
