The Supervet is come to Newcastle this week and he's on a mission to find loving homes for as many pets as possible in just one week.

He's in the North East as part of a new TV series that will be broadcast live from Newcastle Dog and Cat Shelter.

This will take place from Monday 7 th to Friday 11 th August 2017 and they are looking for people who can provide loving, ‘forever’ homes for the abandoned dogs, cats and rabbits of Newcastle upon Tyne to come forward.

‘Supervet’ Professor Noel Fitzpatrick and TV presenter Steve Jones will be on hand to assist in the rehoming the animals.

The aim of the programme is to dismantle the stigma associated with rescue animals and encourage people to adopt an animal in need of a loving home, rather than to shop for pets.

Potential pet adopters wishing to take part, should arrange a time to visit the Newcastle Dog and Cat Shelter to view the pets during the week, and if a good match is found, start the adoption process.

They can email or can call 0191 266 1167 to book a time slot.

“This is a fantastic opportunity for our gorgeous animals to find loving homes. Rescue pets make the best pets, with individual characters and a lot of love to give

– Leyla Rutter, Chief Executive at Newcastle Dog and Cat Shelter
