My furever owner tells me that he was very very lucky when he found me on the DCH website.
It took me about a month of hiding behind the water system in the pantry before i could ge the courage to come outside. Since then i have spent every possible minute i can close by my human. I sleep curled up next to his chest and neck to keep him warm every night and like to headbutt his nose to remind him i am there. For fun i like to dribble as soon as my purr kicks in just to see how much i can grosse him out.
I love my furry brothers and sisters but i am way to human like to be their real brother.
The first picture is the one that i found on DCH site and i instantly knew he was to be my cat.
He is my best friend and i was super lucky to get such an amazing little furbuddy. He is a very large cat (not fat he gets sensitive about that!) runs across the wooden floors like a herd of small elephants, isnt the most agile of cats tho he thinks he is and is the most caring pet i have ever had. I thank DCH every day for giving me my best friend and urge others to find a best friend here as well

Paps (incare as Oscar)

Paps (incare as Oscar)

As promised I'm writing to you with an update! We did change oscars name to Paps because when he walks on the carpet at home his little feet go pap pap pap pap and it's very cute.

He's settled in so well at our home and quickly became good friends with Zagato. They spend time napping together and then spend all night running around playing.

Thankyou for choosing us to be Paps' owners he's really the best ever.

Cartnip 2 AKA Lenny

Cartnip 2 AKA Lenny

Hi everyone, I am Catnip 2 AKA Lenny. My new family called me Catnip 2 after their first cat. I now live in Hornsby and am an inside cat. I have lots of room to roam around the unit and on the balcony. I love my new family and they love me. We all get lots of pats in the morning and evening. My family is very happy with me and the help they got from DCH Animal Adoptions. If you are looking for someone to adopt they are only too happy to help you.

Pebbles

Pebbles

We adopted Pebbles, now known as Martha, from DCH Wollongong approx 6 years ago. Since adopting her, Martha got SARD (Sudden Acquired Retinal Degeneration), and went blind virtually overnight. However, after teaching her some new ways of doing things, she is just as happy and healthy as ever and still loves her walks. We think she is so brave, and she brings us so much love and joy. Adopting Pebbles/Martha was the best thing we did.

Mia

Mia

When we moved 6 years ago we had our old cat Pixie. After 1 year she passed away and I was so sad without her that I started looking online at the beautiful cats on your website. Until then I had always had orange cats but fell in love with the colours of "Apricot" as she was named then. I really never liked her name. After getting her home she went up into the roof of our granny flat and didn't come down for days. It was then I named her Mia (Missing in action). Now she is always on my lap or helping when I am at the sewing machine. She had a very sad life until she came to us but now is very loved. Thank you DCH.

Scout came into my home after one of my 3 older cats died. He has due to old age with my other 2 lovely cats become my only cat. He rules the roost and I don't know what I'd do without him.

Stanley

Stanley

My daughter wanted a kitten when she was 13 years old and it couldn't be just any cat - we hunted around for the one special kitty.

We came across Lyndall, a foster mum through DCH who told us that this kitten Charlie had been dumped in a park inside a plastic bag and was 5 weeks old when he was found.

It was instant love. We adopted him and renamed him Stanley.

He is gentle, affectionate, and a big baby. He needs to eat special kibble as he has crystals in his pee pee but other than that, he is a healthy, robust boy who is loved by all.

I always wanted to adopt a dog from a rescue centre. I found the perfect dog from DCH and couldn't be happier. Its such a rewarding feeling taking in a homeless dog.
The whole adoption process with DCH was so smooth and easy. The volunteers do such amazing selfless work for the animals.
I feel incredibly lucky to have found such a beautiful and loving dog in my life.
Its well worth the time and effort in finding the right dog to suit your lifestyle and saving an animal that needs a second chance.

Casper

Casper

We initially foster Casper from him being 5 months old. He was being bullied by the cats in his foster home at the time & we could see why... He was the softest timid little thing! But once he got to know us he really came out of his shell & made a habit of having a 5am party, running around our bedroom and jumping on us until we woke up! When somebody got in contact about adopting him we realised just how much we'd fallen in love with the little guy & simply could not let him go so we adopted him! :)
Unofficially we celebrate his birthday on Halloween with him being a ghost cat & all ! :) He's now 2 years old, very independent but the most loveable loyal boy ever. He's definitely our 'baby'.
The process of adoption with DCH was easy but thorough. They really care about the animals in their care & want the best for each & everyone of them. Thank you DCH for giving us our forever fur baby! Brooke & Joey xxx
