The Scottish SPCA has launched an appeal to find forever homes for overlooked ferrets in its care.
The charity has been caring for the ferrets at its Lanarkshire Animal Rescue and Rehoming Centre for a combined total of more than 400 days.
The longest resident, Lily, has been at the centre since June 2021.
Gillian Boyle, centre manager, said: “We’d love to find a home for the ferrets in our care as they will make a brilliant addition to the right home.
“Poor Lily has been with us the longest out of all the ferrets, spending over 200 days at the centre so far.
“She is well-handled and could potentially live with other ferrets given the correct introduction.”
Darla, who would prefer to be the only ferret in her new home, was found as a stray and no one ever came forward to claim her.
Ms Boyle said: “Darla loves water and playing with her toys so would make a really fun companion for her new owner.
“She is still young so will need further handling to make sure she becomes a well-mannered member of the family.”
Sally and Suki are a bonded pair of female ferrets. They are looking for an experienced home as they can be a “bit nippy when being handled”.
Ms Boyle added: “Lastly, Crash and Tumble are our bonded male pair.
“They came into the centre as their owner sadly could no longer look after them.
“They’ve been well-handled and love to play in their ball pool before settling down for a snooze.
“We really hope we can find new homes for all these ferrets as they’ll make fantastic companions for any ferret enthusiast.”
