Cute pets at an animal rehoming centre in Sheffield are looking for a good home.

The Blue Cross Animal Rehoming and Advice Unit in Sheffield have several rodents and rabbits who have so far struggled to find a loving home to call their own.

John Cahill, centre manager at Blue Cross in Sheffield, said: “Dogs and cats may be considered a more popular choice when people are thinking of taking on a pet, but we think smaller pets are severely underestimated as fantastic little companions.

They have just as much character, playfulness and love as other pets and should not be cast aside as ‘pets for kids‘ when most small pets are not suitable for children.“

Yoda, a beautiful six-year-old female Chinchilla, is looking for a pal to live with – she can live with a neutered male or another female.

She can be shy at first, but shows enjoys being stroked and will eat treats from your hand.

Frankie is a three-year-old male dwarf lop rabbit who is looking for a home with his five-year-old female chum ‘Chunky’.

They love to play and race through their tunnels and sit in the sun munching on hay.

They want an outdoor home with plenty of space – a shed conversion is best and would need to be a minimum size of 1.8m x 60m x 60m alongside a run of (2.4m x 1.8m x 90cm).

Frankie and Chunky love the outdoors, but when the weather is cooler, Chunky prefers to get cosy indoors.
