Popeye, Riddler and Darcy seek new homes.

Yours 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. The centre has a variety of animals looking for new homes. If you would like to offer one a home, contact the centre on 0300 123 8585 or call into the centre during opening hours (11am-3.15pm every day except Tuesday). The animals can also be viewed on www.rspca.org.uk/findapet or on facebook.

popeye was taken into the RSPCA was taken into the RSPCA animal hospital as an injured stray. When he arrived he was completely lame on his right hind leg which the vets think was due to a cat bite abscess.

This has now been treated and he is ready to find a new home.

Popeye has clearly been loved in the past as he already arrived with his eye removed, so we are not sure why this was done in the past.

For this reason Popeye will need to live on a quiet road as his vision is slightly reduced.

Popeye can be quite timid in new situations, but as soon as you spend time with him and reassure him he will soon start purring and nudging you for more fuss.

Popeye is a long-haired cat so will need regular grooming which he loves and this will also help with bonding, too.

He will play with encouragement but loses interest quickly as soon as you stop. Popeye will suit a quiet home. We feel he will be suited with children over ten years old who understand that he will be shy initially when he first comes home but when he settles in he will make a lovely family pet.

? DARCY the degu (a small caviomorph rodent that is endemic to central Chile), is looking to be rehomed with her daughters Mindy and Minky to someone who is willing to have a large cage with lots of things to chew, and run through, climb and play with.

They are lively girls and are lots of fun to watch. Please can you offer them a loving new forever home? They will need regular handling to keep them well socialised.

? 'CHEEKY monkey' RIDDLER was signed over to RSPCA care after his owners found they couldn't cope with three dogs in the home.

He is only six months old and should be well on his way to maturing into a well behaved adult but, due to a lack of training during his crucial first few months, he is behind in his understanding of commands and what is expected of him.

All he needs is an experienced owner to help him start from scratch, and we are insisting his new family enrol in puppy training classes prior to taking him home. He has led a very sheltered life and needs to broaden his experiences in every aspect, so an active home where he will be out and about meeting new dogs and people will be perfect.

It also helps to tire pups out to stop them becoming bored and getting into mischief.

As mentioned earlier, he has lived with other dogs. When we've introduced him to new ones he can be shy at first, bark at them and hide behind your legs, but once he actually meets them he's good, but very playful.

If he were to live with another dog again it will need to be a tolerant one. For a little time and effort his new owners will be rewarded with a great addition to their home.
