Fox terrier - male - 10 years and 1 month

Update: 20/12. Adoption pending.

I have come in from the pound around 3 weeks ago. I am extremely timid and scared and am only just getting used to my new surroundings.

I am going to need a very special owner to love and care for me, someone who will spend the time continuing the work my foster carer is doing to help me face my fears. Noises really scare me and as of now I only feel safe hiding near a corner. Unfortunately I am unable to tell anyone why I am so scared like this. They are assuming I may have come from a not so friendly home and environment towards me.

I really love to interact with the resident doggy and I get on well with the 2 resident cats so I would love a home with another friendly dog. He has helped me gain some confidence.

I am currently taking anxiety meds to Help me overcome my fears. I
Have started to enjoy running around the backyard supervised.

I am unable to tell anyone my age so the vets have estimated I am anywhere from age 8 upwards. I have a mild heart murmur which doesn’t affect me and I don’t require meds for at this point in time. I have had tests done and my other organs are all healthy.

I will need a desex and my teeth cleaned prior to Being rehomed. I am going to stay with my foster carer until January so she can continue helping me face my fears however will be looking for a home after this to continue it.

Please contact my foster carer Jeanette with expressions of interest and provide some details around the type of home you can offer me.
Email contact only please as I am working and cannot answer the mobile.

Domestic Short Hair - female - 3 months and 4 weeks

Luna was found by herself in the engine bay of a car. She came into care quite scared and timid. She has now warmed up to her foster carers and enjoys sleeping in their laps or curling up beside them. She is very energetic and playful, but can still get jumpy around strangers.

Luna will need to go to a home that will be patient with her while she comes out of her shell. We feel she would benefit going to a home with another cat and no young children. Luna doesn't like to be picked up, but once she is comfortable she will come to you for love herself.

Well socialised in a family environment with older children and two resident cats.

Luna needs to go to an indoor only home. She is fully litter trained and comes microchipped, desexed, up to date on vaccinations, flea and worm treated. Luna will be available for adoption after the 2nd of January.

Please provide us with as much information about your family and home when enquiring.

Located in Plumpton, NSW

Luna has been in foster care since 12 December 2020, for 1 month



Flemish Giant - female - 7 months

Luna is a lovely giant breed bunny who is used to living indoors and is litter trained. She is easy to handle and very cuddly.

She is used to being an only bunny but should get along with another large breed if given time to settle with them. She would be fine as an only bunny if she has lots of human interaction.

Luna comes vaccinated and desexed.

Luna has been in foster care since 19 December 2020, for 1 month

He is kitty litter trained, has had all his vaccinations and vet check and is ready to go to a good home.

Tigger has been in foster care since 21 December 2020, for 4 weeks



Domrestic Short Hair - female - 8 months

Meet Greyhawk. Named for the cute grey stripe (mohawk) on the top of her head.

Greyhawk is a colony rescue cat. She was collected at 6 weeks of age, but was tiny, starving and very sick. She had major trauma to her left eye, which the vet thought would leave her blind. Being the fighter she is, Greyhawk has recovered and has almost full visibility (85%) in her left eye and perfect vision in her right. She is currently on treatment for ringworm and is due to be desexed at the end of January 2021. She will be available for adoption after the vet gives her the 'all-clear' for ringworm. Apporox: early Feb 2021.

Greyhawk is a cute white coloured, and feisty, adventurous kitten, who just loves to play with her human companion. She will chase just about anything.

She freely gives love with purrs, headbutts and leg rubs, but doesn't love to be picked up, except on her own terms. She does enjoy a shoulder ride however. She often runs up the body of her foster parents to take a ride on their shoulders and for a better view of the world. She has also been trained to walk on a lead. So gets very excited when the lead comes out.

Greyhawk is best suited to a completely indoor environment due to her white fur (kept away from too much sun), and would love a fur companion (cat or dog) to play with, but probably not suitable for a family with small children as her feistiness could be a bit too much.

Greyhawk is perfectly litter trained, and eats just about anything. She is currently on a kitten diet, and gets morsels of fresh meat, livers and tiny pieces of chicken neck, which are great for her teeth.

If you are interested in meeting Greyhawk, please get in touch.

Greyhawk has been in foster care since 04 January 2021, for 2 weeks

Crispen has been raised with other kittens, cats, dogs and bunnies and is quite comfortable living among them all.

Crispen will be ready for his forever home around the 22nd January, once hehas been desexed, and he will be microchipped and up to date with his vaccinations and parasite protection before being rehomed.
