This German Shepherd dog is looking for a new home '“Â along with her Chihuahua best pal
An animal charity which has re-homed over 100 animals in less than six months is preparing to officially openÂ itsÂ new Sheffield-basedÂ unit.
Blue CrossÂ officially will openÂ their newest animal re-homing unit officially open on Monday, December 3.
The charity has found loving new homes for 48 dogs, 51 cats and threeÂ rabbits since first opening its Sheffield re-homing and advice unit on Old Station Drive, Ecclesall, in June.
Kerriann Wiles, Rehoming Manager at Blue Cross Sheffield, said: 'Since opening we have helped many pets in need find loving new homes and also helped local pet owners seeking much-needed advice.
'It will beÂ great to be officially celebrateÂ our arrivalÂ in the city of Sheffield and we're looking forward to being able to help many more homeless pets in the future.'
During the event, which is open to invited guests, people will have the chanceÂ to meet dogs who needed a new home.Â
Among the dogs who will be thereÂ looking for a new family to take them in areÂ unusual pair Cassie and Pixie, whoÂ are inseparable despite their different ages and sizes.Â Pixie is a 13 year-old Chihuahua and best pal Cassie is a nine-year-old German Shepherd.
The animal re-homing unit, which also offers pet advice and free microchipping, aims to help around 700 pets in need every year and already has a team of over 50 local volunteers.
Dogs who come in to their careÂ spend the day in the unit'sÂ comfortable rooms, where they get one-on-one attention from the staff and volunteers, and they then spend the night in local boarding kennels.
As well as workingÂ with other local rescues to take in homeless pound dogs, the unit also re-homes pets directly from their previous home to their new one.
Vsitors are welcome to visit the unit any day of the week between 11am and 4pm,apart from Wednesday when it is closed,Â to find out about pets needing homes and for any pet advice.
