Plymouth's most unwanted pets - sitting in a city sanctuary
DESPITE their friendly faces, inquisitive expressions and appealing looks, these are the most unwanted animals being cared for by a city animal charity.
Woodside Animal Welfare Trust, based in Elfordleigh, is seeking new homes for these furry creatures.
The first is Suki who arrived at the sanctuary nine months ago. Despite only being three to four years old, she has had little interest. Originally a stray, Suki needs a cat free home with older or no children. She is affectionate when confidence gained, but also independent.
Jack and Tabby are best of friends and brothers who need a home together. They have been resident at Woodside since last summer. Aged 13, they are friendly, like other cats, but nervy around children so ideally need a child-free home.

Charlie the cat has been described as sweet natured female who is child friendly. Aged three, she is always passed by for a reason unknown to staff.
At just over a year, dog Sky is best described by Woodside as a loveable girl with springs on her feet. She needs someone who will work on training with her.
Sadly Tamar, a two-year-old lurcher, was found as a stray and never claimed. Staff have found him to be good on the lead, although he needs to be muzzled when on a walk as like most lurchers he does not like cats.
At 10 years of age Ruby, a doberman who is still playful and enjoys running off the lead, continues to get passed by. Her owner passed away and a home with older or no children would be best.
Beautiful but stroppy, rabbit Thumper has been a resident at Woodside for the past year. Although neutered she prefers her own company. She would suit a rabbit lover who would spend time with her, but would not make a good children's pet.
Bob is a very handsome boy who has been overlooked for over six months. He is a friendly rabbit who would be suitable with children. He has been neutered and could be introduced to a female rabbit.
Guinea-pigs Alfie and Brandon were born at the sanctuary on October 1 and have had very little interest. Looking for a home together both are neutered. They need a large space to run around in and would be suitable for a home with children.
Theo the ferret joined the sanctuary on November 11 and despite being one of the friendliest ferrets ever, he is still looking for a home. An adult male who is neutered he is used to both other neutered males and females.
