Hi my name is Petal and I am a five and a half year old Labrador X. I am a placid affectionate, girl who needs regular gentle exercise rather than long walks due to having some joint pain but it does not stop me enjoying my walks at all. I could live another dog if we were the right match and older children who were able to be aware of my aches. I know lots of basic training and am generally a very well behaved girl.
Hello, I’m Magic a six and half year old collie X. I am happy, active girl, full of character who loves to walk and play. Although I’m not a pure collie I have a lot of collie traits and it would be great if my new owner had either lived with one before or researched the kind of things us collies like and our personalities. I could possibly live with older children who are used to dogs and possibly with another dog if we got along but no cats please.
Hi, my name is Stanley and I am 11 years old. I was rehomed by Raystede last year but sadly returned due to a change in my owners circumstances. I am the real gentleman of cats and have so much love to offer. I adore sitting on laps and having lots of fuss and cuddles. I am ideally looking for an adult home without other pets and I would like a garden please. I may require occasional steriod injections due to skin irritation and I am fed z/d biscuit to also help my skin. I am a firm favourite with all my staff and volunteers here at Raystede and you would also fall in love with me should you wish to come and meet me. I may be in my senior years but I am very young at heart with so much to offer. I would be a fantastic companion for someone who lives alone or works from home. I will need regular grooming due to my long fur. If you think I could be the cat for you, please do come and meet me, I would love to see you. Love Stanley x
Hi, I’m Bailey, a friendly 5 year old male Husky X Lurcher. I enjoy lots of exercise, making new friends and playing with my doggie pals. I could live with older children but no cats please.
Hi, my name is Freddy and I am a semi longhaired male aged 7 years. I came to Raystede as my owner had to go into a care home so I am now looking for a new loving home. Ideally, I need an adult home (possibly with teenagers) but not young children as I am used to a quiet home. I would prefer to be the only pet but could possibly live with another cat. I do not like dogs. I am very friendly once I know you and I enjoy a fuss. I am not that keen on being brushed but it does have to be done to help keep me looking handsome. I do like to go outside so I do need a garden in my new home please. I have lots to give to the right home so I am hoping that I will find a home soon. Love Freddy x
Hello, my name is Bo and I am a 1 year old small male Husky X Collie. I need a really active home, I’d love to do cani-X or agility, anything to keep me busy!!! I like most other dogs but not cats and could live with older children. Please research my breed type, I am very husky in character and have specific needs relating to environment and lifestyle.
Hello, my name is Hank and I am a friendly 5 year old male medium sized mongrel. I need a very special home with extra support as I am blind. I can be worried by other dogs and would be better in a home where I am the only pet. I could live with calm older children. I love cuddles and really enjoy my walks. I respond well to vocal signals, listening out for warnings about objects I need to avoid. I need a calm environment and a nice garden to stroll around too please!
My name is Cocoobie and I have been at Raystede since the end of May. I am hoping to find a new home for me to share my boundless affection and cuddles with. I am 8 years young and have been neutered and vaccinated but I do need to have my coat regularly brushed to keep it looking pristine and to help maintain my handsome good looks! My favourite thing is being outdoors so I would love a garden that I can explore and call my own. I have been a little bit of a foodie so will am on a strict diet at the moment but I am sure once I have a garden to exercise in I will lose my tummy and wobbly bits!! My ideal family would have no other pets or children as I would like to have all the attention myself! If you would like to find out more about me, or would like to meet me, please contact Raystede on 0844 875 1252. Here is an excellent video of me so please do take a look. I LOOK GORGEOUS (if I do say so myself!). Love Cocoobie xx
