Here is a selection of animals from the Ashley Heath Animal Centre in Dorset who are looking for their forever home.

Located on the border with Hampshire, the centre offers care for its animals in rural surroundings.

A few animals from the centre are listed below but more can be found on the centre's website.

If you wanted to donate to the Ashley Heath Animal Centre to support their work you can do so at the website.


Dorset Echo: SmokeySmokey (Image: RSPCA)

Gender - Male

Age - 11 years old

Breed - Husky (Siberian)

Colour - White and Grey

If you want to adopt Smokey you can view their full profile here.

Smokey is described as a "polite and loveable chap" who enjoys walks in the forest and socialising with other dogs.

He loves to be outdoors, so he would like a home to have a private garden area for him to potter around in.

Smokey's fur coat will need regular grooming once a month and he will need company for most of the day when he's settling in.

Additionally, he is on pain relief and a supplement for his joints, which will need to be continued once he goes home and will not be covered by insurance.


Dorset Echo: DaisyDaisy (Image: RSPCA)

Gender - Female

Age - Nine years old 

Breed - Terrier

Colour - White/Tan

If you want to adopt Daisy you can view their full profile here.

Daisy is a dog who is looking for her forever home as she is struggling to adjust back to kennel life after coming back into care due to her owners circumstances.

She is described as a "perfect little companion" and loves nothing more than cuddles with her owners and snoozing in her bed.

Ashley Heath Animal Centre is looking to rehome Daisy as an only pet as although sociable when out on walks she can suffer from a jealous side and prefers to have her humans all to herself.


Dorset Echo: GomezGomez (Image: RSPCA)

Gender - Male

Age - Two years old

Breed - Domestic shorthair crossbreed

Colour - Black

If you want to adopt Gomez you can view their full profile here.

Gomez came into the Ashley Heath Animal Centre from a large multi-household of 88 cats, and he now wishes to find a loving new home.

He has not had a lot of human socialisation so is quite nervous of people and will need understanding owners to help him settle into a new home environment.

Once Gomez gets to know you, he enjoys a fuss and likes to play with toys.

Cyril and Elle

Dorset Echo: Cyril and ElleCyril and Elle (Image: RSPCA)

Gender - Male (Cyril) and female (Elle)

Age - Six to 12 months

Breed - Domestic

Colour - White

If you want to adopt Cyril and Elle you can view their full profile here.

Cyril and Elle came into the Ashley Heath Animal Centre after being found abandoned with other rabbits.

Now they are ready to find a new home together, which will need plenty of space so they can explore and grow into their full adult size.

When they first came into the centre they both were very nervous of people and being handled.

However, they have become a lot better since then and with time their confidence will likely improve further.
