Numerous pets from around Essex are looking for their forever homes - could you help them out?

Whether you want to adopt a dog, cat, rabbit, guinea pig or hamster, someone always wants to find a new owner.

There are several RSPCA branches in the county, along with the affiliated 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 websites for details.

You can also donate to the charities and help them carry on their rescue work at the same websites.

Jack is described as a dog who has "sudden bursts of energy" but is also one who loves to curl up and snooze.

He is very sociable with humans and other dogs but would prefer to be the only pet in a home.

Jack travels very well in a car but can be overwhelmed at first in new settings so he is looking for owners who will take things slowly and be patient with him.

Having a secure garden to run around would also be ideal for him, with high fences being essential.
