This St George’s Day we ask – can you resist these gorgeous Georges in need of a new home?

As today is national day for England we are hoping the Great British public can help give the animals in our care a loving home.

Trapped behind a wall

Two-year-old Georgie was originally called George until it was discovered that she is actually a female.  Georgie was rescued by our inspectors when she was found trapped behind the wall of a 16th century pub – called the George and Dragon.  She was not microchipped so her owners could not be traced and she is now at our Leybourne Animal Centre looking for a new home.

Enjoys his daily walks

Found as a stray

Loves a fuss and a groom

He is good to handle and loves a fuss and a groom. He is vaccinated, microchipped and passported, but is just waiting for his new home.

Friendly and loves human company

He loves his walks but is just as happy at home snuggling up with you. He is fine left on his own for a few hours. George was at at our Macclesfield, South East Cheshire and Buxton Branch but is currently in a foster home.

An abandoned dragon

And where would our George’s be without the famous legend of the dragon?

Fed on a diet of locusts and vegetables he is now ready for rehoming, along with five other bearded dragons also in our care.

Manager of the reptile unit at RSPCA Brighton Keith Simpson-Wells said:

“People do not realise the commitment involved in keeping reptiles before they take something like that on.

 

“We encourage people to rehome a rescued reptile rather than buying one. That way we can give them the right advice, make sure the vivarium they keep it in is the right size and that they have other equipment, such as heat lamps and the correct lighting, as well.”
