A number of pets in Dorset are looking for their forever homes, including at the Ashley Heath Animal Centre.

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.

To help the Ashley Heath Animal Centre carry on their work you can donate to their website here.


Dorset Echo: RavenRaven (Image: RSPCA)

Gender - Female

Age - One year old

Breed - Terrier crossbreed

Colour - Tan/Grey

If you want to adopt Raven you can view her full profile here.

Raven was found living in unsuitable conditions with a large group of dogs, which means she has led an extremely sheltered existence.

She has not experienced a comfortable home environment before and has had limited socialisation with other dogs and people.

Raven will need help to continue to build her confidence in a home and will also need to be housetrained.

She might be able to live with sensible children over the age of 12 but this will depend on initial meetings here at the centre.


Dorset Echo: MicaMica (Image: RSPCA)

Gender - Male

Age - Eight years old

Breed - Domestic Shorthair crossbreed

Colour - Grey and White

If you want to adopt Mica you can view his full profile here.

Mica came into the care of the RSPCA after his previous owner sadly passed away, and he was then left in the property with a number of other cats.

He has taken time to settle at Ashley Heath and isn't the most confident but he enjoys a good bit of attention.

Mica is looking for a quiet home where he can be given the time and space to settle.

He could be rehomed with another cat but not a dog.

Angel and Yoda

Dorset Echo: Angel and YodaAngel and Yoda (Image: RSPCA)

Gender - Not stated on the profile

Age - Five years old (approx.)

Breed - Chihuahua crossbreed

Colour - White (Angel) and Brown (Yoda)

If you want to adopt Angel and Yoda you can view their full profile here.

Angela and Yoda came into the care of the RSPCA after being removed from unsuitable living conditions.

They are now looking to find a home together and will require owners experienced with Chihuahua breeds and their behaviours.

Someone will need to stay at home with them initially as they are likely to need some housetraining due to previously living in dirty conditions.

Both lack social skills with other dogs so can easily be scared or worried by them.


Dorset Echo: RingoRingo (Image: RSPCA)

Gender - Male

Age - One year old

Breed - Domestic

Colour - Grey and White

If you want to adopt Ringo you can view his full profile here.

Ringo came into the care of the RSPCA from a multi-animal household and would like to find a home where he can live with a female guinea pig.

He is very much a fan of his food, often letting you know if you're late with it.

Ringo has also been used to being handled by an older child and so may be suitable to live with calm children of older primary school age.

Ashley Heath adds: "Our minimum sizing requirement for a pair of guinea pigs is 4ft by 2ft (sleeping area) and an additional exercise area attached 6ft by 2ft."
