Numerous pets from around Essex are looking for their forever homes - could you help them out?

Whether you want to adopt a dog, cat, rabbit, guinea pig or hamster, someone always wants to find a new owner.

There are several RSPCA branches in the county, along with the affiliated Danaher Animal Home.

If you think you would be able to rehome one of them, go to either the Essex South, Southend & District branch, the South West branch, or the Danaher Animal Home websites for details.

You can also donate to the charities and help them carry on their rescue work at the same websites.

Jax came into the RSPCA after his family could no longer care for him after a change in their circumstances.

He is described as an "energetic, active and affectionate" dog who loves cuddles and being snuggled up on the sofa.

Jax is very partial to high-value treats and could benefit from some loose lead work to help him become calmer when greeting new dogs.

He would need to go to a home with no cats and with children over the age of 10.

Age - One year old

Breed - Bichon Frise

Colour - White

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

Flo came into the RSPCA after her current owners were no longer able to care for her.

She is described as rather "sensitive" and "shy" so she will need a calm home where she can settle in at her own pace.

Other dogs are a great source of comfort for Flo, so going to a home with one already part of the family would be a benefit.

Flo is also looking for a home with a garden as she needs some time to settle before going out on walks.

Noel was found injured as a stray and is a cat who has found life a bit overwhelming so far.

However, he has recently started to enjoy rubs and head scratches from people he knows, so is showing signs of progress.

Ideally, he would go to a home where he would be the only pet, where he has access to a garden and any children there would be "quiet and cat-savvy".
