As the Office for National Statistics unveils 2017’s most popular baby names, the RSPCA reveals pets with the same names looking for new homes.
Topping the list of the most popular baby names for 2017 were Oliver and Olivia and budding pet owners can take home an Oliver or Olivia of their own.
The RPSCA have highlighted some rescue pets named Oliver and Olivia in need of a loving forever home.
Oliver is a 7-year-old white and black cat who was taken into RSPCA Patcham animal centre in Brighton from a multi-cat household. He was covered in fleas and a little nervous at first. He can be a bit jumpy around lots of noise, so will best suit a calmer home. He loves attention and being stroked, so in time would like a nice comfy lap to lay on.
One -year old black and white cat, Oliva was taken to RSPCA Central West and North East London branch because her past owner could no longer look after her. She was very unsettled and scared little girl when she first went into care and found the cattery environment very overwhelming. She is currently being fostered to allow her to adjust back into a home and start to feel safe again. Olivia is playful and very good at exploring.
Ollie – a middleweight cob pony – is based at RSPCA Essex and is a lovely well-handled pony who is good to catch, groom and have his feet picked out. Ollie is currently in foster care and has excelled with the one-to-one attention and is such a different pony compared to when he went into RSPCA care.
Five-year old Chihuahua, Ollie is based at RSPCA Patcham animal centre in Brighton and went into RSPCA care on September 4 due to his owner going into hospital. He came from a multi-dog household and has live with various siblings and will need overall training. He is not keen on other dogs so would benefit from further socialising.
