These adorable animals are looking for homes to call their own in the new year.
All of them are currently residing in Mrs Murray’s Cat and Dog Home in Seaton, which sees more than 1,500 unwanted or abandoned pets pass through its doors every year.
The charity has stopped rehoming during the festive period but will reopen in January.
Mrs Murray’s was founded in 1889 by Mrs Susan Murray as a place of refuge and shelter for stray and abandoned dogs and cats in the city of Aberdeen.
Apart from boarding income, the cost of animal care at Mrs Murray’s is largely met through donations, legacies and other public support.
