The following foster animals are needing sponsorship for their vet costs. Due to injury or illness their vet fees have been extensive and we are seeking donations to help us cover these costs.
All donations to DCH Animal Adoptions over $2 are fully tax deductible.
Domestic Short Hair - female - 1 year and 11 months
Mischief has been in foster care since October 2016, after she was rescued by a good Samaritan after being left for dead with her 7 kittens, unfortunately only 5 kittens survived but they have all now found homes. Mischief could have a little mix of oriental in her as she is a long slender cat and likes to talk.
It's now Mischief's turn to find her forever home
Mischief was named by her rescuer.
Mischief is a friendly cat and likes attention, being still young herself Mischief loves playing with kitten toys and is often running through her foster carers house playing with toy mice, balls and cat puzzles. Mischief loves interacting with people, and many nights will bring her toy mouse or bird to to her carer - while 'talking' about how clever she is.
Mischief lives with both adult cats and kittens, and warms to them quite quickly. While Mischief lives with 2 puppies they are a little boisterous for her, and while she has settled and has learnt to deal with their antics they can sometimes be a little too much for her.
Mischief would suit a home with either another cat friend or she would be just as happy (if not more so) in a single cat household.
While Mischief does have short supervised adventures outside, she is easily startled and becomes frightened in the outside world and unable to find her back inside, so we would like her to go into an indoor only home.
Located in Bligh Park NSW

Kelpie x - male
Thor hasn't had the best start to life, he was hit by a car and taken to he vets where he was found to have extensive nerve damage to the front leg. All the nerves were dead and he ended up with a leg that was unusable and was causing him grief.
Sadly Thor has had his leg amputated and is now on the hunt for a loving forever home that can see past his looks and love him for the fantastic personality that he has.
Thor gets along with dogs well and enjoys playing just like all puppies. He has a kind and happy personality and would suit most homes.
If you can offer Thor a loving Forever Home please email us a bit about yourself and your home.
*Update: Thor has had his surgery and it's been successful. Costs are $886, if you can help sponsor these additional fees for Thors vet expenses please see below on how you can donate*
Thor was adopted on 09 February 2017 after 2 weeks in foster care
DSH - male - 4 months and 1 week
Sponsorship Required:14/2/17: Little Jack has had an operation on his left eyelid to stop his lashes, which have grown downward, rubbing on his eye. Both the kittens sadly suffer with this and will more than likely require further surgery at time of desexing, which will be in early March. For now, we will monitor how Jack's eyelid is healing. Please help with sponsorship for these boys so that they may continue being carefree mini-tigers.
These two siblings are lovely, friendly, playful little kittens who should fit easily into most households. The boys get along well with dogs (see picture), other cats and the house bunny in foster care.
They were dumped outside on a hot day when only 2-3 weeks old. They were very lucky to be found and handed in to a vet clinic. The Twins have thrived in foster care and are now ready to leave and find a loving family of their own to grow up with.
Ideally they may go to a home together but they can be separated. Please contact us today.
Jack and Jake has been in foster care since 15 January 2017, for 2 months
DSH - male - 4 years and 3 months
Pic's is a lovely large tabby boy. He loves human companionship, sleeps at the foot of his foster carer bed every night and will snuggle next to you on the lounge.
Piccolo doesn't mind other cats so could go to a multi cat household or be adopted with any of his current feline siblings. He still enjoys playing and will have his crazy cat moment every few days. He also enjoys to chase shoes laces around if engaged in games.
Piccy has a few outstanding health condition (luxating patella's and a heart murmur) this can discuss with his foster carer on enquiry. However this is not affecting him at this stage.
He is only needy when it comes to food as he thinks he is always hungry. He will come across a little shy at first however is not a shy cat.
Piccolo is looking forward to meeting you and available to come on a trial, with the agreement he is welcome back to his current carer is things do not work out.
When you come to meet him, he probably won’t be super welcoming, although it will not take me long to transition to a new house and human friends.
**Piccolo has had a few medical issues while in care including a blocked urinary tract. His vet fees have come to just over $1,000. If you can assist with a donation to help us cover these additional costs please see below for details.**
Piccolo has been in foster care since 07 March 2013, for 4 years
DSH - male - 3 years and 2 months
Jayde is a lovely boy who can be quite shy when he doesn't know someone.
He gets on really well with all cats & kittens and loves to rub up against our large dogs and is very friendly with them.
He probably would not be suitable with a dog that wasn't cat friendly as he wouldn't run away if they tried to hurt him.
Jayde has a white horseshoe marking across his rump & this may have given him some good luck when he was recently bitten
by a paralysis tick, but with veterinary care he has thankfully made a complete recovery.
Jayde's vet expenses have come to $437. If you can help sponsor him please see details below.
**DCH would like to say Thank you to Natalia, Davy, Carolyn, Lisette and Hui for their generous donations towards Jayde's vet fees. His additional costs have now been fully covered.**
Jayde has been in foster care since 24 October 2015, for 1.4 years
