The 16 adorable dogs, cats and rabbits up for adoption at RSPCA Leeds and Wakefield
The charity homes the animals, some of which arrived as they could no longer be cared for by their previous owner, at a centre in East Ardsley. Regardless of how they end up there, the animals are cared for until a new home can be found. The RSPCA also offers advice to people who already own pets but may be struggling to cope with the cost of food or healthcare.
Here are all the cats, dogs and rabbits currently being cared for at the centre that have not yet been matched up with the right owners. More information can be found on the RSPCA Leeds and Wakefield website.
Police are investigating after a dog was mauled to death by another canine pet in north London. The animal died after another dog raced across the road to launch an unprovoked attack, police said.

A dog walker is being hunted by police after he tried to steal a canine and then attacked its owner before fleeing empty-handed in a van. The 66-year-old woman was targeted by a man in a wooded area near Benbecula Park in East Kilbride, South Lanarkshire. The victim was assaulted as she held on to her dog.
I’ve wanted a dog for ages but I can’t persuade my wife that it’s a good idea. She’s just worried that it will be more work for her – another thing to think about when she is already super busy. Our two young children are desperate for a puppy too and I’ve promised I will deal with all the dog stuff. How can I persuade her?
