Bella and Jersey

Bella and Jersey

Smooth and Rough Collies - female - 12 years and 2 months

These two girls were originally adopted through DCH in 2006 and with great sadness, the owner is now surrendering the pair back to us due to health complications. Bella and Jersey 13yo bonded pair, rough and smooth collies
Bella and Jersey grew up together and share a very deep and special connection. They are very supportive of one another and a loving pair. They have different personalities that compliment each other. Both dogs are rather oblivious to other dogs, their socialising days are behind them. A "hello" sniff will suffice. They like bothering the cats, although, they'll never catch them! These two are very easy to look after as long as you give them love, attention and daily walks. They are smart and wise and a simple request will have them go to bed, finish their food or respect the house rules. They are house trained and will hold it until they are outside.
They have adapted really well and fast to their foster carer's home and never have been moody, upset nor unpleasant.

Jersey (the ginger one) is the most active of the 2. She loves going for walks (with or without Bella) and is particularly caring. She will come check on all family members to make sure they are ok and obviously, get cuddles. She is not a big eater but enjoys treats and sits on command. Very good on the lead and gentle. She will bury her head in your elbow and make funny happiness noises when joyful! The vet was impressed with her health and general state: she does not look her age! She might have issues seeing well in the dark and is cautious of dark places such as building entrances or underground passages - but who isn't!!!

Bella (the grey/white one) is in charge and her hip arthritis will not stop her chasing the cats! Although she has to take it easy and slow (very slow!), she loves going for short walks and rolling herself in the grass! She enjoys a good meal... and needs to pay attention to her waistline! Bella's condition does not affect her personality. She is a loving dog, enjoying retirement and giving all the love she has.

Bella and Jersey only want a little haven to enjoy their retirement together and be part of the family. Their adoption fee together is $250. If you'd like to meet these lovely old girls, please contact Jo on 0401 900 696‬.

Bella and Jersey has been in foster care since 23 January 2019, for 1 month



DMH - male - 3 months and 1 weeks

Felix was abandoned and found at barely two weeks, all alone.

He was unwell with cat flu and was slotted to be put to sleep if no rescue was available to care for him and bottlefeed him to health.

5 weeks on, he’s almost adoption ready- toilet trained, eating solids, running jumping and almost completely recovered from the cat flu.

He’s been raised in a family with rowdy kids and two other cats and gets on well with everyone.

He’s full of beans and loves to run around and play.

He’d benefit from a family where he’ll have lots of company to play with and to help him mature into a cat.

If you think you’d be a good fit with Felix, please get in touch via email with some information about your family including any current or prior pets.

Felix has been in foster care since 27 January 2019, for 1 month



Domestic Short Hair - male - 2 months and 3 weeks

Cricket was found on the street on a hot Sydney day when he was just a teeny little lad. Lost and alone, this little ginger fluff ball meowed his little lungs out until he was found by a member of the public and handed into the local vets.

Taken into foster care, this little baby had to learn how to eat solids all on his own, without his mum and littermates helping him out. After a few weeks in care, Cricket has flourished with lots of love and care under vet supervision.

Cricket is proving to be an affectionate, energetic, and snuggly lad.

He will be available for adoption once he is over 1kg in weight and old enough to leave his foster brothers and sisters, approx early March.
He will be microchipped, and have had his 1st vaccination. His desexing is also covered by her adoption fee.

Currently fostered in Randwick, NSW.

Cricket has been in foster care since 11 February 2019, for 1 month

DSH - male - 2 months and 1 weeks

Lovely little Tigger has the best markings, stripes all down his body and his little tummy actually has a mix of spots and stripes! He is an energetic young boy who loves a play but has already found his love for pats and rubs, and meows if he isn't getting enough attention. Tigger is currently 7 weeks old, and has been wormed, vaccinated and flea treated, with all that is left to do before he can be adopted is get his microchip and age/grow a little! Tigger currently weighs around 850g, once he reaches 900g and 8 weeks of age he will be so ready for his new home, but beforehand he would love to meet you!
Please contact Gemma to come and meet this little guy on 0435 939858.

Tigger has been in foster care since 28 February 2019, for 3 weeks



DSH - female - 2 months

Ruby is the prettiest girl. She LOVES to play, and has now realised we are the best place to find the best play time! When she gets tired she starts to be around you even more, and comes right up around you legs and will chase your hands so you keep stroking her. She gets along well with her foster brother, Tigger, but also isn't afraid to tell him if she wants her food all to herself, or if its her toy at that point! But it seems to be situational, because they play and sleep together for the rest of the day. Ruby is still a young girl at only around 6 weeks old, and she still has her veterinary work to be done before she can be adopted, but in that time she would love to meet people who are potentially going to be her forever family! If that could be you, please call Gemma on 0435 939858.

Ruby has been in foster care since 28 February 2019, for 3 weeks



Domestic Short Hair - female - 2 months and 2 weeks

All kittens will be ready to be adopted once they reach 1kg approx mid March. They will be microchipped, and have had their 1st vaccination. Desexing is also covered by the adoption fee.

If you would like to arrange a meet and greet please contact the respective foster carer.

Khan is a beautiful young man, who has recently been rescued from a regional pound. He is 10 months old, and is still growing into his big paws.
