A Home for Rex

Posted December 2019

Do you have the special, loving home that Rex so desperately needs?

Rex (5)Rex is a lovely boy who has sadly been waiting far too long for his forever home. Rex has been resident at two other animal centres who were couldn't find his perfect match. It's coming up on a year since Rex arrived at the York Animal Home and we're desperate to find his forever home.

Rex is a lovely, friendly and lively lad who is here looking for a second chance of a forever home. Rex is a very active boy who enjoys long, exciting and interesting walks,

He will need an equally active family to open up their heart to this fabulous chap.

He would benefit from some further training which he would thoroughly enjoy as he loves learning new things and will accept any challenges life throws at him.

Rex does suffer with a few allergies but please do not let this put you off, he is fed on a fish based grain free diet which he has flourished on. He will be best suited as the only pet in the home and could live with teenage children and over.

We'd love to be able to find him his perfect home this Christmas so if you think that could be you please get in touch.
