18-month-old Dominic got into a fight with a larger cat that resulted in a fang being drilled into his leg. After the operation that removed the tooth, the “loving and clean” cat has recovered well. The Destitute Animal Shelter says Dominic must be the only pet in the house, will likely want to get out on time, and should be able to get along with older children.


Bruce, a 16 month old Staffordshire Bull Terrier mix needs a new home.

He finds being in the kennel stressful but can be “attentive and loving” when he is comfortable. He must be in an adult-only household with no other pets.

A victim of poor breeding who has been diagnosed with bilateral hip dysplasia in both hips, among other health issues, Bruce’s adopter must deal with these issues.

Gino is “very sweet and loves his cuddles”


As an 11-year-old mongrel, Gino enjoys playing and going for walks.

The Destitute Animal Shelter says, “Even though people have let him down, he still thinks we’re awesome, he’s very affectionate and loves our cuddles.”

The shelter says Gino should go to a home with no other pets and children should be over the age of 12.

The shelter describes Sam as an “amazing dog” who is “fun and makes you laugh.”

Sam was tried in a home with another dog he knew from walkers but it didn’t work so he must be the only pet in a home.

He is obsessed with teddy bears and enjoys tearing them up and gets along well with children aged 6+.

Sam needs to be kept on a leash when walking and needs someone at home most of the time.

The Bolton News: Del Boy, "as strong as he looks" is very happy and playful.Del Boy, “strong as he looks”, is very cheerful and playful.


Del Boy is a 6 year old cross bull dog who is as strong as he looks but is described as a wonderful dog who is very happy and playful.

He loves walking around with his fake stick as he loves to show off. He loves to roam free in a safe area instead of going for a walk.

However, he is very strong, so the shelter recommends that anyone adopting him be experienced with large dogs.
