Pet Sounds: Wouldn’t it be nice (to find a home)

Homeless Blue Cross pets have recorded their very own album of pet sounds in tribute to the 50th anniversary of seminal Beach Boys album, Pet Sounds.

Cats Autumn, Lizzie and Kenny, George the horse, rabbits Oscar and Rebel and a guinea pig litter named after the Beach Boys members Brian, Mike, Al and Bruce have all contributed their voices directly from our rehoming centres.

Laura Crofts, Centre Manager at our Burford rehoming centre in Oxfordshire, said: “With this year marking the 50th anniversary of the Beach Boys’ album we thought this was the perfect opportunity to give a voice to some of the amazing pets we have ready to be rehomed at our Blue Cross rescue centres.

“As the track Here Today, Rehomed Tomorrow suggests, Blue Cross work hard to find as many loving new homes for pets as possible. We match the needs of each pet with potential new owners to find the best new homes for them. We care for so many wonderful pets that really deserve a second chance to find a happy home. ”

The classic 60s album, currently being live toured around the world by Beach Boys co-founder Brian Wilson, famously features sounds of Wilson’s own dogs Banana the beagle and Louie the Weimaraner. As well as dogs, it is reported that Wilson also considered bringing a horse into the recording studio during the original recording but this wasn’t approved.
