PETS of all different shapes and sizes can be heart-warming additions to homes and become loving companions.

With Christmas just around the corner, the RSPCA WA has dozens of animals who are ready to be adopted into families.

Make your festive season even more joyous with one of our 12 strays of Christmas.

* These animals were up for adoption at the time of print.

1. Lily, 1-year-old, female

This sweet staffy is the perfect addition to a family home without kids and other animals around. She is active, clever and friendly but needs some training. Her hobbies include conquering puzzle toys.

2. Harry, 7-year-old, male

Harry is a big, mature and friendly German Shepherd who wants to live out his golden years as a new owner’s best friend. With his tendency to get super excited, he will be suited to an adult family home with no other animals.

3. Bingo, 10 months, male

Coming from Kalgoorlie, Bingo is looking for a forever home with patient owners who don’t have kids. While he had to get a leg removed after he got caught in a trampoline, he still happily bounces around.

4. Shimmer, 1-year-old, female

This young cat is best suited for loving family with older kids. She was found living in a complex by herself with her five kittens. While she is a little shy around new people, she will come out of her shell in time.

5. Ginger, 1-year-old, female

This sweetheart was involved in a nasty run-in with a car. With a lot of treatment and care, she is ready to blossom her way into a new home. Having lived with other cats, she may be able to be friends with another cat.

6. Charlie, five months, male

Charlie is a bubbly little boy who will slot into a caring family perfectly. Due to his sensitivity to weather, he needs to be kept cool in summer and warm in winter. With beautiful orange hair, he will need regular brushing.

7. Romeo, 1-year-old, male

Need a furry companion? Romeo is your man. He is a friendly bunny who prefers living in a cool and protected environment. He also loves eating tucker and green leafy vegetables.

8. Slim, 1-year-old, male

This fine guinea pig is looking for owners who will groom his gorgeous brown satin hair regularly and give him lots of love. He likes being in a secure hutch and being fed lots of tucker.

9. Caleb, 11 weeks, male

Caleb is a cuddly little Red Heeler cross Kelpie who was born in Esperance. He is one of 12 siblings who travelled more than 800km to find a perfect family. While he needs training, he will grow to be a friendly medium to large sized dog.

10. Colin, 11 weeks, male

Caleb’s brother Colin is an active puppy who is wanting some love and attention. While he needs some training, he is a confident puppy who can live with older kids and another dog. He loves toys, napping and eating food.

11. Phineas, 1-year-old, male

This energetic tan and white staffy is looking for a new family with some dog experience and potentially teenagers. He enjoys exercise and new adventures. Experiencing a tough life so far, he would love to life without fear.

12. Johnty, 1-year-old, male

Looking for a fun dog? Johnty might be your match. He likes to get to know new people, snuggling up to people and playing with toys. He also enjoys going to calm places to sniff flowers and stretch his legs.
