Mavis

Mavis

Domestic Short Hair - female - 1 year and 6 months

Mavis has been surrendered into care to find her a new home.
She has had a litter of kittens prior to coming into care and we have rehomed her kittens and its now Mavis' turn for a forever home.

Mavis is estimated as approximately a year and a half old by the vets by its just an estimate.

She had been living tough on the streets before she found help from a property owner. Mavis is a friendly cat and purrs quickly. She enjoys a good pat and likes company. She will take pats when upside down and will knead with her claws.

She is very strong, lean and is used to being an independent. We would recommend that she is kept inside as an indoors cat going forward. She is probably best as a single cat in the home and in a home where she is allowed to explore and climb.

She was desexed on the 28/5 and has received 1 X F3 vaccination and is due for a 2nd at the end of the month.

She has had flea and worm treatments and is microchipped.

For more information please contact us.

Mavis has been in foster care since 17 May 2020, for 1 month

Bobbie

Bobbie

Domestic Short Hair - female - 2 years and 7 months

Bobbie's owner moved away and left her behind. She has had 2 litters of kittens according to the neighbours. She has now been desexed on 28/5 and is looking for a new family.

She has been living rough on the streets for at least a year and has been used to visiting neighbours for food. She is a lovely cat and has a wonderful purr but you have to earn her trust first. She is a little shy and timid and takes a little while to come out of her shell. We strongly recommend her as an indoors only cat to keep her safe and protected and loved.

She does shed some fur and will need at least a weekly brush.

She has received her 1st vaccination and will receive a 2nd towards the end of the month. She is available now to a home where she will receive love and attention and have the patience to allow her to adjust and settle into a new life.

The vets have estimated she is around 2.5 years old but is just an estimate.

She is located at the PETstock adoption enclosure at Marden Park and can be visited and viewed during PETstock trading hours.

Bobbie has been in foster care since 17 May 2020, for 1 month

Vader

Vader

Domestic Short Hair - male - 2 months and 3 weeks

Vader

Indoor Only Cat

Available From 18 July 2020

Vader and his 5 siblings (Violet, Vincent, Vonnie, Valla, and Vindi), were found living under a house with their mumcat when they were about 4 weeks old. The litter of 6 kittens were brought in to foster care and Mumcat was desexed.

Vader can be quite a talkative little kitten and has a very loud meow for his size! Although initially a little shy, it doesn't take too long for his curiosity to win. Vader will adapt fine into most homes, and as long as he feels safe and loved, his confidence will also grow.

The $200 adoption fee includes microchipping, worming, first vaccination and desexing. These 6 kittens are also litter-trained and socialised with other kittens and cat-friendly dogs.

Vader will be desexed 14 July, and will be ready to go to his new home from 18 July 2020.

Please use the "Send enquiry email" link below, if you have any questions or if you are interested in adopting.

As we currently receive lots of enquiries for each kitten, please include relevant details about yourself and your home/other pets. 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

Vader has been in foster care since 24 May 2020, for 1 month

Vindi

Vindi

Domestic Short Hair - female - 2 months and 3 weeks

Vindi

Indoor Only Cat

Available From 18 July 2020

Vindi and her 5 siblings (Vader, Vincent, Vonnie, Valla, and Violet), were found living under a house with their mumcat when they were about 4 weeks old. The litter of 6 kittens were brought in to foster care and Mumcat was desexed.

Vindi is a sweet, playful kitten with a gentle nature, and she is the smallest in the litter but she has a big purr! Although Vindi is initially shy with strangers, it doesn't take her too long to come out for her favourite back scratch or belly rub. Given a bit of time to adjust, Vindi will be a lovely little companion.

The $200 adoption fee includes microchipping, worming, first vaccination and desexing. These 6 kittens are also litter-trained and socialised with other kittens and cat-friendly dogs but are not used to children.

Vindi will be desexed on 14th July, and will be ready to go to her new home from about 18th July 2020.

Violet

Violet

Domestic Short Hair - female - 2 months and 3 weeks

Violet

Indoor Only Cat

Available From 18 July 2020

Violet and her 5 siblings (Vader, Vincent, Vonnie, Valla, and Vindi), were found living under a house with their mumcat when they were about 4 weeks old. The litter of 6 kittens were brought in to foster care and Mumcat was desexed.

Violet is the very shy kitten of the litter and although she can be quite affectionate, (especially when she's sleepy or hungry!), it will take time and patience. Ideally, Violet should go to a quieter home with adults and no children. It has taken a month, and she will now happily sit on my lap for a pat or brush, so your patience will be rewarded!

The $200 adoption fee includes microchipping, worming, first vaccination and desexing. These 6 kittens are also litter-trained and socialised with other kittens and cat-friendly dogs.

Violet will be desexed on 14th July, and will be ready to go to her new home from about 18th July 2020.

Vincent

Vincent

Domestic Medium Hair - male - 2 months and 3 weeks

Vincent

Indoor Only Cat

Available From 17 July 2020

Vincent and his 5 siblings (Violet, Vader, Vonnie, Valla, and Vindi), were found living under a house with their mumcat when they were about 4 weeks old. The litter of 6 kittens were brought in to foster care and Mumcat was desexed.

Vincent is a fluffy little guy with beautiful golden eyes! Although he can be very excitable and playful, Vincent becomes quite cuddly when he is sleepy and he is also beginning to love being brushed. Once familiar in his surroundings, Vincent becomes quite confident and he should adjust well into most homes.

The $200 adoption fee includes microchipping, worming, first vaccination and desexing. These 6 kittens are also litter-trained and socialised with other kittens and cat-friendly dogs.

Vincent will be desexed 14 July, and will be ready to go to his new home from about 17th July 2020.

Roxy

Roxy

Australian Silky Terrier - female - 10 years

Roxy was rescued under Duty of Care whilst the Pound tried to find her owners. As no one came forward, Roxy was transferred to DCH care. Roxy initially presented with a flea/skin infection which has come along way, and has exposed nerve roots in some teeth, 5 which will have to be removed. Roxy is a quiet girl and is okay with and without company, prefers to sleep on the end of a bed or curled up on a comfy circular bed.
Roxy is not a playful girl but does set a good pace when walking on a lead, preferring a collar to a harness. Roxy is non-reactive to other dogs and walks well.
Very occasionally, as with most small dogs, her trachea 'sticks', causing a strange choking sound, however it fixes itself after a few seconds.
Roxy has had a successful meet and greet and is likely to get adopted after her stitches are removed after surgery. If, however, the trial period is unsuccessful, the 'On Hold' stamp will be removed and Roxy will be looking for another furever home.

Roxy has been in foster care since 16 June 2020, for 3 weeks
