Maverick and Goose looking for somewhere to land

Goose and Maverick are a stunning budgie duo who are on the lookout for their permanent home together.

They are currently being cared for by the Scottish SPCA’s Angus animal rescue and rehoming Centre.

Unfortunately Goose doesn't have flight feathers so he is unable to fly. Other than this he is a perfectly healthy wingman to Maverick.

These two can be very inquisitive and interested in what is going on around them.

They seem to be a little hand-shy at the moment so they would benefit from a patient owner who will continue working on their confidence.

The Scottish SPCA is looking for an experienced owner who can offer the duo a large cage with plenty of perches and climbing equipment so Goose is able to move around the cage with ease.

If you can give Goose and Maverick their new home, please apply via the Scottish SCPA website:

Dmitri is a lovely Guinea pig now ready to find a new home to call his own. He is currently being cared for by the Angus animal rescue and rehoming centre.

Dmitri has not had much socialisation in the past therefore any potential new owner will need to continue his handling.

He could be bonded with another Guinea pig as they are social animals.

He will need a large, secure enclosure with plenty of space for him to run and play.

He will also require plenty of toys and enrichment to keep him happy and healthy.

Dmitri has been used to living indoors therefore would be best suited to a new home where he can be kept inside at least until the warmer months then he can slowly be introduced outside.

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

The charity is also seeking to rehome 78 ferrets that it currently has in care, with four at the Angus centre alone. The charity can be contacted on 03000 999 999 and all the ferrets can be viewed and applied for at
