Adopting a pet is a big commitment, so it’s important to do your research before adopting a pet.

But for those who are ready and able to make a commitment to providing a home for a pet, a life of love awaits you in return.

Here are the wonderful dogs, cats and small animals who are currently in search of their forever home in the Duchy.


Zeke is a one year old guinea pig, looking for his forever home.

He is looking to find a home with female friends, but will have to wait until he is fully recovered from being sterilized first.

He is looking for a patient owner who is willing to build his confidence by being manipulated. With the right house and the right business to help him settle in, he will be back in no time.

Bailey sadly struggled to find his forever home after being taken in by the RSPCA as a locked puppy.

As a result, he finds it difficult to socialize early on and lacks the confidence to step out into the real world.

He would benefit from an adult-only home in a quiet rural area, with people who are experienced with collies and their breed characteristics, giving him the time and space to overcome some of his worries.

If you think you can afford Bailey the home he desperately needs, please contact the Cornwall branch to make an appointment. To find out more, click here.


At around 14 years old, this charming lady is in search of her eternal family where she can live out her beautiful days with her human companions.

Verity can be shy at first. So it would take a bit of time and patience for her to build her confidence before she became the sweet and friendly girl that she is.

This pretty girl is very shy and will go into hiding when faced with something that she is not sure about.

With the help of an experienced and patient owner, who could link her to another female or a sterilized male, she will become an excellent, albeit small, companion.

This shy beautiful girl will need owners who are experienced in taking care of the more nervous types.
