Charity aims to pair loving pets with loving homes

Russell the lionhead crossbreed rabbit is looking for his new and permanent home.

Russell is a shy little guy who will need an experienced owner, or someone who has done their research into owning rabbits, to help him feel cosy and comfortable in his new home.

While he doesn’t mind a pet, he does prefer to keep all four paws on the ground.

Once he gets to know you, Russell is inquisitive and adventurous, and loves nothing more than playing and binkying around his enclosure.

He is used to living indoors, and would need an indoor enclosure initially, although he could possibly be moved outdoors in the summer months.

He is neutered and would potentially be able to live with a bunny friend pending a successful introduction.

During the bonding process, both rabbits would need their own living space to help ensure things go as smoothly as possible.

Russell has a long coat and would need regular pamper and grooming sessions from his new owner to keep him looking sharp and handsome.

If you can give Russell his new home, please apply via the Scottish SCPA website at

Walter the albino ferret is looking for his new home. He is currently being cared for by the Scottish SPCA Angus, Fife and Tayside Animal Rescue and Rehoming Centre.

Walter is a sweet ferret who enjoys playtime with his favourite humans – but also loves an afternoon snooze too.

He likes the odd trip outside where he can enjoy new sights, smells and sounds.

Walter is currently on a special diet to help him lose a bit of weight, and his new owner will have to commit to helping wee Walter continue to be a happy and healthy ferret.

If you can give Walter his new home, please apply via the Scottish SCPA website:

If you wish to report an injured or distressed animal, call the charity’s helpline on 03000 999 999, rather than local rescue centres, which is currently open from 7.30am to 9pm.
