Appeal for homes for small and exotic animals in Angus

We are appealing to the public to find homes for the overlooked small and exotic animals in the care of our Angus, Fife and Tayside Animal Rescue and Rehoming Centre.

We have been caring for the animals for a combined total of over 700 days but unfortunately they have been overlooked.

Centre assistant manager, Dale Christie, said, “We are currently trying to find forever homes for 11 ferrets, six rabbits, two budgies, a cockatiel, a tortoise, a rat and two royal pythons.

“We would love to find homes for all of our small and exotic animals but especially our ferrets.

So far this year we have had more ferrets come in to our care across the Society than is usual.

“Our longest resident is Hamish, a cheeky ferret who has been with us for over 217 days!

“He loves to investigate and explore. Hamish would love a large, secure enclosure with plenty of space, toys, and enrichment to keep himself entertained. Any children in the home would need to be teenagers as he can nip when playing.

“Hamish would prefer to be the only ferret in his new home but if anyone is looking for a friend for their existing ferrets, we’d love to hear from you as we have so many in our care that we’re sure we could find the perfect match.

“We would love to see Hamish and all our other small and exotic animals find their new home.”
