Homeless pets release a Beach Boys tribute album

Homeless pets have released a Beach Boys tribute album made entirely of pet sounds.

The collection of songs have been recreated using the voices of animals in the care of pet charity Blue Cross to celebrate the Beach Boys album 'Pet Sounds'.

Laura Crofts, centre manager at Blue Cross rehoming centre in Burford 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 re-homed at our Blue Cross rescue centres."

The Beach Boys' album includes tracks such as 'Wouldn't It Be Mice (Nice)' and 'God (Dog) Only Knows' and is designed to give a voice to just some of the many homeless dogs, cats, horses, guinea pigs, mice and rabbits being cared for by the charity and who are seeking new homes.

The original album is being toured around the world by Beach Boys co-founder Brian Wilson and famously features sounds of Wilson's own dogs Banana the beagle and Louie the Weimaraner.
