Gypsy

Gypsy

Shih-Tzu - female - 10 years and 6 months

Sweet Gypsy is an unclaimed stray and was rescued from the Pound by DCH. Gypsy is a tiny 2kg package, cute as a button and a very easy going lady who loves just doing her own thing. Currently on a foster to adopt basis.

Gypsy has been in foster care since 17 June 2012, for 10 years

Tiny

Tiny

Mixed breed - mare - 16 years and 3 months

Tiny is a red roan, approx 13.3 hh.
She has been through a lot: starvation, abuse and neglect. Happily, she has blossomed in DCH's care, and will continue to gain trust in people in the right home.

Tiny has loads of personality! She is very smart and will learn quickly from a patient, kind and understanding handler. She can be a bit feisty in the paddock and is dominant with other horses and around food.

Tiny would suit an experienced home with someone who has time to do groundwork with her, she loves attention and being mentally challenged. 

Tiny has been in care for over a year. She requires an experienced home to further her education.

 

 

 

Tiny has been in foster care since 07 October 2018, for 3.7 years

Suri

Suri

Domestic Short Hair - female - 2 years and 2 months

Dear Suri was found after she gave birth to a litter of kittens when she was just a shy kitten herself. She nurtured them well, and they’ve all got furever homes. But - just as she was starting to learn to relax and accept affection herself - she developed ringworm and had to be isolated for several weeks from all but her carer.

Following her recovery and release from isolation, she now chooses to spend her time in our (large, escape-proof) garden, even at night, and – in the main – doesn’t want to be touched except by her carer, and even that with some reluctance.

She is never mean or scratchy; she is just extremely timid. She does enjoy spending time with one of her carer’s kittens.

Suri is still in need of her own furever home. She is low maintenance, but clearly needs to be safely outdoors within a cat proof enclosure, and with a family who understands she will never be a lap cat…. Are you that patient cat lover?

Please contact Suri's carer to arrange to visit her at her temporary home in Ermington.

Suri is microchipped, vaccinated and desexed, and is up to date with her flea and worm treatments, so she is ready to go.

Suri has been in foster care since 30 November 2020, for 1.6 years

Jessica

Jessica

DSH - female - 2 years and 4 months

TEENIE TINY JESSICA:

Jessica has experienced continual problems with her breathing following a bout of cat flu - as a result, she has been a regular visitor to her vet, and had to undergo antibiotic treatment and a couple of operations in order to try to resolve the issues. Unfortunately, her treatment is, and will be, ongoing until she is all better. The vet feels she's as good as she's going to get in her current environment (with lots of other cats about) and thinks she may well improve in a new home with less cats - possibly a cat that is allergic to other cats?? Anyway, for now she does have noisy breathing and it may or may not improve but we'd love her to find a home with a caring person willing to give her that chance.

Little Jessica wandered into our lives and we have been blessed with having her share her time with us. There was no sign of her Mum or siblings when she came up to us. She was starving. She enjoys dry food the most, but to give her a rounded diet, we get her to eat wet food as well. She's a big eater for such a little cat and doesn't seem very particular about what brand of food she eats. Currently she's on kitten food and she should be kept on this diet until she reaches an adult age. She'll probably remain looking like a young cat because of her little size.

Jessica has the most pretty sweet face. It's so petite.

Jessica has long little legs, and is a very small cat. She has grown since she's been with us, but I don't think that she will ever reach the size of an average cat.

She loves playing with other cats in our household, and because she is so tiny she's able to win most games of hide and seek because she knows she can slip into areas that others have no chance of ever fitting into. She's definitely got that game down to a fine art.

Although not currently a lap cat, it's probably only because she always seems to be on the move. She purrs and purrs when patted or picked up.

She is used to large dogs around her and isn't fazed at all by their presence.

Toys like a stick with a ribbon tied on the end is the sort of toy she loves the best. Plus she's highly excited with trying to catch a lazer light that is moved across the floor.

Jessica comes with her own designer cat carrier. I don't think I'll ever have the privilege of fostering such a tiny cat again so we've decided we should send the little girl off to her new home with her own classy cat carrier.

Jessica is microchipped, desexed and up to date with her vaccinations.

The vet fees associated with her treatment are large, and getting larger. Any contribution towards these would be very welcome.
Thank you*Thanks to Lorraine for fully sponsoring Jessica's vet fees to date. Her fees to date have now been covered.*

Jessica has been in foster care since 22 December 2020, for 1.5 years

Ellie was rescued from the pound when she was heavily pregnant. All of her puppies found fantastic new homes and now Ellie is looking for her new home as well. Due to her previous situation, she is scared of new people and new environments but once she has settled, she is extremely affectionate and loves to sit on your lap. Ellie is good with other dogs and loves to go for walks in quiet areas. Ellie requires a fully fenced backyard and is not suitable for a unit or apartment

Tabbygail

Tabbygail

DSH - female - 9 months

Tabbygail came into foster care at the tender age of 2.5 weeks, with her siblings Humphrey, QTPie and Truffles and was bottle fed the first few weeks in care.

Tabbygail is a truly funny, cheeky kitten - who can often be found chasing her tail in the bath tub; she also has the funniest growl when she gets fully into her play and she will run through her foster home growling at the world 😊 And Tabbygail is convinced the resident dogs are her play toys, even if the dogs aren’t to sure.

If her foster mum sits on the floor with criss-cross applesauce legs, Tabbygail will quickly assume her position curled up on her lap to be part of whatever is about to happen.

Tabbygail is an adventurous kitten, and often tries to sneak out the back yard when the door opens - so her foster mum has allowed her supervised play time to climb the tree and romp through the long grass.

Tabbygail has been raised with other foster kittens, as well as the resident cats, dogs and bunny and she happily co-habits with them all. While Tabbygail has access outside via a cat run in her foster home, she is looking for forever family that can offer her the protection of growing up inside (or safe outside access).

Tabbygail has been desexed, had all her kitten vaccinations and is litter trained and will be up to date with her parasite protection - Tabbygail is ready for adoption now.

As we receive a lot of enquiries for our kittens, please include relevant details about yourself and your home/other pets, to be considered.

If you are renting, please ensure that you have approval for a cat BEFORE you lodge interest.

You must be over 18yrs old and an Australian citizen or Permanent Resident to adopt an animal from DCH.

Tabbygail has been in foster care since 19 October 2021, for 8 months

Joey

Joey

DSH - male - 8 months and 3 weeks

Joey is ready for Adoption Now!

Joey and his 3 x siblings, came into DCH care on 21st October 2021, after being handed in to Campbelltown Pound as orphans when they were about 3 days old. Joey is the sole survivor of his litter, with all kittens having some form of physical deformity - most likely as their mum was sick when pregnant.

Joey was bottle-fed and has been handled and around people since he was born, so he does love people... once he is comfortable with you.

Joey is a lot like a cat-dog who follows you around, sits with you, headbutts for attention and sniffs everything (really loudly!). Joey has been vet checked and cleared of any major issue (FIP, FIV, FeLV) but his body does look a little different as he has a congenital defect, and is missing muscle/tendon behind his shoulder blades. This condition does not require any treatment or medication.

Although he is definitely not a graceful mover, and can be clumsy when jumping or getting down from heights, nothing seems to slow him down. He does get a little jealous of his foster siblings but has also tried to make friends with our 2 x older resident cats. Recently, Joey has also decided he likes cat-friendly dogs, too!

If you are interested, please come and meet Joey. He is initially a little shy but he will absolutely thrive with individual attention. Joey will be a perfect companion for someone out there.

Joey is litter-trained and is currently being socialised in my home. He is a little bit of a scaredy-cat! Joey is currently eating Royal Canin Kitten Dry & Advance Kitten Wet food, with lots of clean water always available.

The $225 adoption fee includes:

  • Microchipping,
  • Worming/flea-treatment,
  • Vaccination,
  • Desexing
  • So he lives his best and longest life, Joey must also be an INDOOR ONLY cat.

    Please use the "Send enquiry email" link below, if you have any questions or if you are interested in adopting Joey. PLEASE INCLUDE INFORMATION such as whether you own other pets, if you have a quieter or more chaotic household and any other relevant details.

    If you are renting, please ensure that you have approval for a cat BEFORE you lodge interest.

    You must be over 18 years old to adopt an animal, and, for a kitten, also be prepared to look after it for up to 20years! 😻

    Joey has been in foster care since 21 October 2021, for 8 months

    Momo

    Momo

    Domestic - female - 4 years and 8 months

    Momo is such a sweet kitty. She has a quirky personality and loves to follow you around to see what you are doing. She loves playing with bouncy toys and laser pointers and cardboard boxes!

    Sometimes she behaves like a dog and likes to roll around on the balcony or outside! She loves her supervised outside time and napping in the sun. If there is a sunny window no doubt Momo would be napping on it!

    She is very treat and food driven which is good for training. She loves to greet you when you come home with meows and rubs on your legs wanting pats. She also loves when you come home with groceries. She likes to see what goodies you got and if there are any for her!

    She eats whikas dry food in the mornings and wet food at night. Every now and then she will have chicken neck or some boiled chicken breast.

    If you're sitting in the loungeroom she'll sit with you, if you're going to bed she'll snuggle on the bed too. She loves a good cuddly soft blanket! She loves scratches especially behind the ears and under her chin. She'll always find a weird position to sleep in.

    Like with any new cat she will take a little bit of time to adjust. She is very keen to explore and play though. She doesn't like loud noises. Sometimes she will want to be left alone to do her own thing. She's not really a fan of fish. She prefers chicken or beef!

    She is litter box trained.
    She is currently desexed and fully vaccinated and will need her next vaccination in March 2022,

    Medical Notes:
    Momo has received an acne wash in the past for acne on her chin. No other known medical issues.

    She will be best suited to a home where she is the only cat in the home and where there are no young or noisy kids.

    This is an assisted rehoming / Private Listing.
