This year, we’ve teamed up with the charity to help find them some loving homes.

If you’ve picked up the mag this week, you’ll have seen some of the pets in desperate need of a home. But don't worry if you've not got it yet, because we've got some more furry friends, right here, who need your help.

And remember, if you think you can help, we’ve put all the numbers at the bottom of the page.
