Give a dog a home: Charlie the crossbreed has been at ‘full to brimming’ animal rescue centre for 540 days as RSPCA issues appeal to get him new owner
- Rush to adopt dog who has been in RSPCA rescue centre for 540 days
- Charlie, 9, in shelter at Brent Knoll RSPCA, near Burnham-on-Sea in Somerset
- Cost of living crisis means centres are ‘full to brimming’
An appeal to home a dog who has been at a rescue centre for 540 days has resulted in ‘a lot of applications’ from people hoping to adopt him, said the RSPCA.
Charlie, a nine-year-old crossbreed, is being looked after at Brent Knoll RSPCA, near Burnham-on-Sea in Somerset.
Andy Cook, a training and behavioural advisor, said he was brought in after a change in the family’s circumstances.
He said the cost of living crisis meant centres were ‘full to brimming with pets in need of adoption’.
Mr Cook said: ‘Charlie spends a lot of time with staff and joins us on break times… we all enjoy spending time with [him] but know in our hearts he really needs a proper home to call his own.’
Charlie, a nine-year-old crossbreed, has been in shelter since September 2021 at Brent Knoll RSPCA, near Burnham-on-Sea in Somerset
‘He is so loving and affectionate and a pleasure to be around’, according to BBC News.
Charlie has also been ‘negatively impacted’ by an unstable environment in his previous home, per the Weston Mercury.
He said Charlie would suit a person, a couple or a family who had older children as he can be a challenge around other dogs.
‘He just needs a loving home where he will get all the care and attention he deserves,’ he added.
RSPCA centres are ‘full to brimming with pets in need of adoption’ as a result of the cost of living crisis
‘By freeing up space we can help more animals in need, so we would ask anyone interested in adopting a pet to also view the RSPCA’s Find a Pet webpage’.
Charlie is said to be highly affectionate with people he’s familiar with and craves contact.
He is also described as playful – he enjoys squeaky toys, as well as running around and rolling around on the floor with his toys.
