"He would suit someone who doesn't have any other animals, however, he could possibly live with another sociable dog.
"Pino will need a lot of exercise and someone who is home the majority of the day.
"He isn't suitable to be rehomed with children under five-years-old."
2. Strawberry and Mint, female rabbits
"Strawberry and Mint are a pair of female rabbits in need of a home together.
"They have been used to living outside and as always, will require housing with plenty of space."
3. Marigold and Honeysuckle, female cats
"Marigold, who is two, and Honeysuckle, who is one, are new arrivals and have just been spayed this week.
"They are nervous shy cats and so will require quiet, patient homes and plenty of time to build their confidence."
4. Beau, male dog
"Beau is three-years-old and will require an experienced owner who can continue with his training.
"In his foster home he is living with other dogs who have put him in his place for being a little excitable, which he accepted gracefully.
"Beau needs lots of exercise as he is a very playful boy and for this reason he is not suitable to be rehomed with young children."
5. Muffin and Crumpet, female rabbits
"Muffin and Crumpet are another pair of bonded female rabbits.
"They are both very sweet and friendly and will make lovely pets.
"They are currently used to living outside but were previously house rabbits."
6. Bing and Crosby, long-haired rabbits
"Bing and Crosby are bonded brothers who are looking for an indoor home.
"They are long haired so will require some regular grooming to keep their coat matt free.
"As with all rabbits they will need plenty of space, and when the weather becomes warmer they could be introduced to an outside space."
7. Vixen and Comet, cats
"This mum and son duo are looking for a kind and patient owner.
"They are both very shy and may take months to become confident in their new home.
"The pair would suit a quiet, indoor only home where they will be the only pets"
8. Blossom, long-haired cat
"Blossom is a three-year-old, long-haired cat looking for an indoor home.
"She is happy to be in the company of people but isn't a lap-cat and only like an occasional fuss on her terms.
"Her fur is very long and matts easily in areas that she doesn't let you brush, so requires a professional groom around 3 times a year."
9. Bluebell and Tulip, female guinea pigs
"This pair of bonded guinea pigs are approximately two-years-old.
"They are currently living outside and could be bonded with another female if someone had a lone one."
All of cats, dogs and rabbits at the centre are neutered and microchipped before rehoming and all adoptions are subject to a successful home visit and an adoption fee.
