All they want is a loving home; The Mail has linked up with the RSPCA to help to find homes for pets at the charity's Animal Centre at Newbrook Farm, Frankley Green, Birmingham...

HODOR came into the centre as a stray. He he was nearly bright orange as his coat was so dirty but the colour is gradually fading and where he has new fur regrowth in his previously bald areas it appears he is actually an albino ferret.

He has been with us for a while as he had a cold and had medication. He is now fighting fit and looking for a loving home. He is quite a character, very playful and bags of fun.

He can be a bit nippy will need an experienced owner, possibly with other ferrets, although if a potential adopter wishes to rehome him with their existing ferret a meet will have to take place at the centre first.

POOR Cagney was abandoned in a carrier but was luckily found by a member of the public. Unfortunately we were unable to trace the owner so Cagney is now looking for a new home.

Cagney is now looking for a fresh start and to put her horrible past behind her.

She is quite unsure in new situations, which is to be expected with all she has been through but with gentle start to trust you.

She is unsure when you first approach her and when you try to say hello she will bring her paw up to try and bat you away. We have found this little lady likes her treats so this is a good way to positively reinforce fuss.

She will need a quiet home and an owner who has had shy cats before. Once Cagney has settled in completely she will make a loyal companion and a real lap cat! She is quite chatty when you talk to her and she will respond with a little 'prup' back. We feel Cagney will be best suited to a home with older children able to understand her past life experiences and will give her the space she needs when she first comes home.

Cagney will play with some encouragement but gets bored quite easily. She tends to spend most of her time indoors so probably won't venture further than the garden until she finds her feet a little more.

her owner was imprisoned.

She was totally bewildered initially and we've given her extra time to settle in for her to gain our trust. It was clear she had to meet you twice before she gave you a wag of her tail. We have spent time introducing her to new situations in a positive way and she seems so much happier these days. For this reason we are insisting new owners visit her a few times prior to going home.

Once she feels comfortable with you she is a great little character. She loves playtime, especially tug-of-war, and will have a good game of rough and tumble play too.

She knows all of her basic commands and walks well on her harness. We've introduced her to other dogs and she is generally very calm and sociable. Sky needs an experienced owner who is looking for loyal and loving companion. She needs an adult household.
