Sarge

Sarge

American Staffy - male - 3 years and 9 months

Sarge is a loyal gentle sole with a cheeky streak who would really benefit from an owner who has a lot of time to spend with him. Other than when he is eating( he is highly food motivated).

He LOVES being with people and has very little concept of personal space until he falls asleep.

Sarge would best suit a family with older children who love outdoors and long walks. He LOVVVVVVVVVVVES to swim and is a real water baby. With some training and a good home with the correct settings for him then he will make a wonderful best mate to someone.

Needs to be adopted to a home without Cats and without other dogs would be ideal or with a smaller dog than him.

Stevie

Stevie

Staffy X - female - 8 months and 2 weeks

UPDATE:

Stevie has a Patella Luxation on her right hind leg and will require corrective surgery when she is about 10 months old, after she has grown a bit. Stevie will remain in DCH foster care until after her surgery.

Any donation towards the cost of this surgery, which will be approximately $1,000, would be very much appreciated.
______________________________

Stevie was surrendered to Hawkesbury Companion Animal Shelter, and although her history is unknown, she was initially too scared to be handled or touched and cowered in fear from people.

However, after only a few days in foster care, this lovely girl is just a happy, playful puppy who needs some love, patience and training!

Stevie is being crate trained and is doing really well! The crate is used for car travel but more importantly, it gives her a safe place to go when she is unsure or needs some security, and it is also where she sleeps at night. Stevie will go into her crate at bedtime and sleep by herself on her nice soft bed, without barking or complaining.

Stevie will be a medium sized dog and will suit a person/family that has prior experience with dogs and, most importantly, has the time to continue with her training and socialisation. She is a clever puppy and responds very well to positive reinforcement, and is very affectionate once she knows and trusts you. I think Stevie would excel if given proper obedience training.

Stevie would be best to go to a quieter home without children and will need a secure yard.

Stevie is a bit cheeky and food reactive with other dogs at meal time however, and eats in her crate now as she loves to sample what the resident dogs are eating rather than her own bowl.

Although Stevie has met our resident cats, she wants to play with them like dogs, and they are not impressed! It would be best if she went to a cat-free home.

As she has already had a rough start to her life, please carefully consider if you would be suitable to adopt Stevie as she now needs love, stability and a permanent Forever Home.

Remember that Stevie is still a pup who will be naughty, chew something she shouldn't or occasionally bark - how she behaves as an adult dog will depend on how she is trained now.

Stevie will remain in DCH foster care until after her corrective surgery. She will hopefully be ready for adoption around April 2021.

*Adoption in NSW Only

Stevie has been in foster care since 25 October 2020, for 3 months

Munchkin

Munchkin

Domestic Short Hair - male - 3 months

I am small but mighty. I am cute but super cool too. I am brave and fearless.
I AM THE MUNCHKIN!

OK, seriously, I may be the smallest of the bunch but I can do anything they can do and more. I even eat from a bowl and the rest of them don't. I have a dark grey/black tabby coat and huge beautiful blue eyes. I love to play chasings, hide and seek, ball, stalking that funny blue furry 'snake', climbing, pouncing, running, wrestling with my siblings, except Sprocket, he's a scaredy cat! Ha ha!

After a big play I love to curl up with my sibling's but Foster Mummy's lap is even better and then I purr and purr and purr and purr. I'm living in with my brother and sisters but I'm looking for a furever home with a fun-loving family who are home lots to play and wrestle and cuddle with me. I think a home with other cats would be cool and maybe even a dog..... cos I'm not scared of anything..... I think! But, I am definitely an indoor only boy.

Munchkin has been microchipped and vaccinated. Desexing is included in the adoption fee.

If you are interested in learning more about this little boy, or wish to visit him at his foster home in Winmalee, please email his foster carer.

Munchkin has been in foster care since 02 November 2020, for 2 months

Sprocket

Sprocket

Domestic Short Hair - male - 3 months

Hi, I'm Sprocket. I'm sweet and cuddly and soft and cute as anything with fantastic tabby markings. I love to cuddle up with my brother and sisters but the best of all is Foster Mummy's lap! I love to play tickle tummy with her and then curl up, purring, and fall asleep.

I enjoy playing with my bro and sisters but sometimes they get really full on and I get a little hesitant to join in. My big sister is so cool she can even take on a dog but I think I'd be terrified. I love chasing the bell ball and playing with the furry blue 'snake' by myself. I'm getting really good at playing hide and seek (cos I'm super smart) and my running and pouncing are the cutest in the family, at least that's what I think.

I'm living in the Blue Mountains with my brother and sisters but really would like to have a 'furever' home. A loving family who are home lots to play and tickle my tummy would be fantastic. I think I could get on really well with another cat but no dogs please, they are just too bouncy for me. I am an indoor only kitty.

Sprocket has been microchipped and vaccinated. Desexing is included in the adoption fee.

If you are interested in learning more about this special boy, or wish to visit him at his foster home in Winmalee, please email his foster carer.

Marilyn Monroe is a beautiful, smoochy female that came into the pound with 6 healthy babies. She has hauntingly pretty face with beautiful eyes and unusual tortoisehell face plus tabby striped body. She was a little underweight when she came into care so she is now getting supplement feeds while she's feeding her babies. She has a quiet meow and greets you when you come into her room.
She is litter trained, indoor cat now who, to her credit has already taught her babies how to use the litter pan by 4 weeks of age.

Annie

Annie

Domestic Short Hair - female - 3 months and 3 weeks

NOW ON HOLD FOR ADOPTION

Annie and her siblings, Angus, Addie and Asha were found living under a shed in St Helens Park and had not had human contact when they came into DCH foster care. They still run and hide when startled or meeting new people, so they will need an adopter who will be patient.

Annie is the smallest of the litter and she is still quite shy but now she comes for a cuddle and pat as soon as I sit on the lounge. Annie is a beautiful little kitty who will really thrive and become more confident with some individual love and attention.

Annie is being desexed on the 8th January, so she will be ready to go to her new home from the 15th January 2021. Annie must be kept as an Indoor Only cat in her new home (this means that she does not go outside).

The $225 adoption fee includes microchipping, worming, first vaccination and desexing. These kittens are also litter-trained and socialised with other foster kittens.

Annie is now on hold pending Adoption.

Asha is a beautiful medium haired little lady who has just gained her confidence with people and is quite affectionate. She still runs away initially until she knows you but Asha has just discovered that she rather likes pats and cuddles! Asha can be quite active and playful but does really enjoy snoozing on a sunny windowsill.
