Here is a selection of animals from the RSPCA branches in Essex and the affiliated Danaher Animal House who are looking for a forever home.

There are some animals from the Essex South, Southend & District branch, the South West branch and the Danaher Animal Home

If you think you would be able to rehome one of them go to either the Essex South, Southend & District branch, the South West branch, or the Danaher Animal Home website for details.

You can also donate to the charities to help it carry on its rescue work at the same websites.


Braintree and Witham Times: Charlie (RSPCA)Charlie (RSPCA)

Gender - Male

Age - Three years old

Breed - Newfoundland

Colour - Black

Charlie is described as a friendly and sometimes overexcitable dog who has not had much experience of the world outside the small garden he lived in before coming into the RSPCA's care.

Ideally new adopters would have some experience of owning large breed dogs before. Charlie will need all his basic training starting from scratch. He loves treats so with positive reinforcement he should be a quick learner. 

He is used to sharing his space with other dogs, so could potentially share with another dog pending a dog meet.
