Three-legged ferret seeks new home

Lawrie the ferret

We are looking for a loving home for a three-legged ferret named Lawrie to give him a great start to the new year.

One-year-old ferret Lawrie has been in the care of the charity’s Glasgow Animal Rescue and Rehoming Centre for 40 days.

Rachel Mansfield, assistant centre manager, said: “This loveable chap arrived with us after being found wandering around in a field by himself. 

“Unfortunately, he had sustained some injuries which has resulted in Lawrie having to have a forelimb amputation.

“This doesn't hold him back however, as he has been nothing but friendly, loving and very inquisitive with the staff who have been looking after him.

“Because Lawrie is adjusting to his new life with three legs, we are looking for a home for him where his housing can be on one level to prevent him from struggling up and down.

“Lawrie doesn't let anything get him down and loves to spend his time by playing with his toys then settling by wrapping up in a cosy blanket for a nap.”
