Oscar, Millie, Toby

Oscar, Millie, Toby

Staffy x Kelpie - female

These 4 puppies were abandoned with their litter mates early and although lucky enough to come into rescue from the pound they have sadly come down with Parvo and are currently fighting for life at the vets. Luckily little Millie and Tina, the sisters, don't seem as badly affected as their brothers who at this stage are on a drip at the vets and we just have our fingers crossed they are strong enough to make it through.

We are looking at vet bills in excess of $5,000 for these pups, If you can assist by sponsoring these puppies please see how below.

Update 30/4/18: Sadly Toby and Milly didn't make it, thankfully Oscar is recovering well and is home from hospital. He will be ready for adoption in a few weeks when he has fully recovered.



Poodle - female - 10 years and 3 months

Sponsorship Needed

Cap is a sweet and gentle mini poodle who loves cuddles and pats, looking for her new forever home. She is good around people and other dogs (never fights, barks or growls except if she is on her own territory if she hears the neighbor's dog barking).

She has come into rescue after being found on the streets in December. Due to some ongoing health issues, the pound she was in was not able to keep her for long and so reached out to our foster carers.
She underwent and successfully responded to the following procedures while in foster care:

Teeth scale and clean
-Two rotten teeth extractions which prevented her from eating properly which is now all better
-Removal of lumps which were tested and were pronounced benign and the stitches are fully healed).
She was on steroid medication for her skin up until the surgery but not any more.

Ongoing medication (roughly $70/month):

-Eyes: Medicated eye ointment for her dry eyes.

-Heart: 2x daily heart med liquid taken on an empty stomach one hour before breakfast and one hour before dinner. She takes this very easily.

Her medical procedure fees were in excess of $1700. If you can help sponsor some of these costs please see how below. *Update 20/4/18: thanks to Jayne, Fiona, Suzanne, Rosita, Robert, Katie and Emily for their donations which have covered $1300 of Cap's vet fees so far*

Cappuccino has been in foster care since 01 January 2018, for 4 months



British Bulldog - female

This young girl has come into care needed some extensive vet work. She has luxating patella's and eye issues which will both need corrective surgery. This is estimated to cost $2,000 and we are seeking donations to help sponsor her surgery.

She will obviously not be ready for adoption until after these have been done and she has fully recovered but luckily for her we do have a list of eager families waiting to meet her afterwards, so at this stage no adoption enquiries please.

Storm was adopted on 26 April 2018 after 1 month in foster care



Domestic Short Hair - male - 7 months and 2 weeks

Lary is a Georges kitten. He had a very hard battle at the beginning of his life as he was very sick with cat flu. However he is a strong fighter and has recovered and is now doing fantastically well.

He has lot of energy and enjoy company. He likes to follow you around and has a habit of climbing up your legs from time to time. He has had close human company since he was two weeks old and has grown to be a wonderful little kitten.

He is now on the hunt for a new home before the holiday period.

He is currently in the Quakers Hill area. Please contact us for further information or to arrange to see him.

Medical Conditions
Larry has had chronic cat flu symptoms. He tends to sneeze a lot and in times of stess his cat flu symptoms return. He has been xrays and had nasal cultures and he will probably have life-long nasal congestion. He is currently on a 6-8 weeks course of Doxy tablets.
He has tested negative to the herpes virus as part of his testing on the cat flu symptoms but could be a carrier.

Sponsorship needed for his on-going medical treatment.

Lary has been in foster care since 30 October 2017, for 6 months



general domestic - female - 7 months

Caspa is lucky to be alive. Dumped with her brother (Toohy see profile) at a Bankstown building site, both kittens were found in a dire state of care. Looking at them both now it is hard to believe that they were ever anything but happy siblings who were loved and cared for. We cannot stress how fortunate we feel to have found them.
We would prefer that the two be adopted out together as a pair therefore reducing their pricing.
Both are bubbly active little critters, very friendly to all and love being in each others company. Constantly at play and not at all bothered by the carers two big dogs, that peer through the windows and licking them through their sleep inside crates at night and now a days roaming free with the dogs. Very good at using their litter trays and are exploring there surroundings fearlessly, lets just say having lots of fun and adventure. They are vaccinated, micro chipped and wormed. Both will be due for their 2nd vaccination early in the new year with the 3rd vaccination due approximately 5 weeks after the 2nd. Caspa will need to be de-sexed once she has reach the age of approx 16-18 weeks, she is approximately 12 weeks old. De sexing costs are covered by DCH and are inclusive in the adoption fee. A broad list of vets with whom DCH are affiliated with provide the service. The list will be forwarded to your email address for your convenience. Caspa was found with an infection in her right eye which now has almost healed completely. Sadly it is unlikely she will have full vision of the eye and applying the ointment daily 3 times is still needed at this time. We are confident in her full recovery and know she has a bright and healthy, fun filled future ahead of her, with her brother Toohy. We are looking for the right loving family or caring individual to take these two amazing siblings home.

If you are interested in adopting Caspa along with Toohy, please contact Rod on
Caspa is in care at Revesby NSW

Poor Caspa's damaged eye has failed to heal after months of trying. She can't see from the eye and we have now reached the final option of having the eye removed. Caspa's surgery will cost $550. If you can assist with sponsorship of some of these costs that would be appreciated

Caspa has been in foster care since 21 November 2017, for 6 months

Jack and Jake

Jack and Jake

DSH - male - 1 year and 6 months

These twins are both very easy-going, relaxed kittens that would easily fit into most homes. They love to play and get on well with the other cats, dogs (both large and small) and bunny in foster care. They have had all their vaccinations and are desexed & ready to go to their forever homes.

Why were they rescued: They were dumped/Abandoned outside on a hot summer day when only 2-3 weeks old. They were very lucky to be found and handed in to a vet clinic. The vets called DCH and they were bottle fed and raised.

Medical Notes: Little Jack has had several operations on his left eyelid to stop his lashes rubbing on his eye as they developed in the wrong direction. Jack requires his eyes cleaned once a day with a damp & warm cloth. Jake's eyes have improved as he's grown and his final surgery seems to have been successful with no ongoing problems expected.

Name: Jack and Jake
DOB: 22-Nov-2016
Type: Domestic Short Hair
Adoption Fee: $300
Includes: Desexing, Vaccination, Worming prevention, Microchip.

Petrescue ID#515347

***many thanks go to David and Michael who have helped contribute to Jacks additional vet fees, we have still spent an additional $900 on vet fees and sponsorship help would be very appreciated.***

Jack and Jake has been in foster care since 15 January 2017, for 1.3 years



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 years and 4 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 2.5 years
