Kelpie cross - male

Hi my name is Beau. My mother was found wandering the streets before she was rescued. After my mother was rescued and placed into care, I was born along with 1 brother and 3 sisters and I’m now looking for my forever home. I’m very energetic but very friendly and lovable. I get on with everyone but as my mother was a kelpie, after I grow up I will need lots and lots of exercise. If you would like to meet me, could you please contact my carer because I would love to meet you. I’m available for adoption after 22/11/20 🐾💕

Beau was adopted on 14 November 2020 after 4 days in foster care



Domestic Short Hair - female

Two cute, playful, beautiful bundles of joy are looking for furever homes, together or separately.
Poppy and her brother Max were rescued from the Pound, and found themselves in a foster home full of activity and lots of attention. They have thrived in the care of a family including four young children, three resident cats, two dogs and two bunnies – plus mum and dad to manage them all! So both kittens should fit in happily with an active family, possibly with some furry friends to play with. They will bring much affection and joy. To keep them safe, their home has to be indoor only.

A charming little girl, Poppy is very affectionate and loves to be petted and handled. She is also happy to let all the kids pick her up for a cuddle. While she can still be a bit wary of new people she soon comes out of her shell. She’s interested in her surroundings, enjoying exploring things at her own pace; and is happy alongside the other animals in the menagerie.

Poppy is vaccinated, microchipped and vet checked. Desexing is included in her adoption fee.

If you are interested in learning more about Poppy, or visiting her in her foster home in Ermington, please contact his carer, Kristine.

Xena (now Amber)

Xena (now Amber)

DSH - female

Indoor Only Cat

Xena had a pretty tough start as a kitten but thanks to a very caring vet, she is now thriving and ready to find her Forever Family.

Xena was found in a gutter after presumably, she had been hit by a car. She was taken to Rossmore Veterinary Hospital and, instead of being put down, this affectionate little kitten was given surgery on a broken pelvis and saved! Although she has healed well, Xena does have a “frozen” left hind leg which will be a permanent condition.

Being the little warrior that she is, Xena has now adjusted to her situation, and instead of dragging her leg, she swings it in front and uses it for balance. At this stage there is no need for her leg to be amputated but this may be a future consideration.

Xena is very people-focused and extremely affectionate and will meow or use her paw to tap you if you stop paying her attention! She loves to follow us around the house and has no shyness at all when meeting new people.

Although she initially hissed at the foster kittens on first meeting, it only took days before she was snuggled up with them and happily playing.

The $200 adoption fee includes microchipping, worming, first vaccination and desexing. Xena is also litter-trained and socialised with cat-friendly dogs.

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

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

Xena (now Amber) was adopted on 13 November 2020 after 2 months in foster care

Domestic Short Hair - male

Hi, I am Toulouse and I was taken into care with my brother, Thomas. He has now found his furever home; while I have some smaller fluffballs to play with I rather miss him, so I'm hoping a loving family all my own will take me home with them soon.

Toulouse is a slender, sleek and muscular boy, with sharp intelligent eyes. He has a fantastic purr. He quickly learnt that a pat and cuddle are wonderful. Toulouse loves to find a quiet warm spot for a cat nap with the other kitties in his foster household.

Toulouse loved playing with his brother - chasing, wrestling, rumbling, balls with bells, mice, toes and fluffy toys. He also enjoys exploring - climbing, sneaking, hiding, climbing legs, and wriggling behind furniture, windows and beds. And is quite the technology fan - walking on screens and keyboards and being mesmerised by the screen.

Toulouse would thrive within a peaceful family with other cats, which has the patience and love to help him settle in. We think he will turn into a homely snugglebug, and good play, mate for other family felines. He is an indoor only kitty.

Toulouse has been microchipped and vaccinated, and is desexed so he is raring to go on his new adventure with you.

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

Toulouse was adopted on 09 November 2020 after 4 weeks in foster care



Mini Foxie - female

Tulip's mumma named Nova came into DCH care to have her puppies in the safe environment of DCH foster care. She had her babies in a nice warm lounge room on a cold stormy night when she was able to enjoy a nice soft bed with the heater running to keep her babies warm.
She raised 5 beautiful Foxie Mini puppies.

Tulip is the 5th and last puppy born and got the nickname Tona due to her grey colouring compare to her brother and sisters who are black and white.

Tulip was the runt of the litter so was the last to venture out from their “nest” but is making up for it with her bravery and small little Yelp ans strong personality.

Tulip has received all 3 puppy vaccinations and has been desexed, microchipped and treated with flea and worm prevention.

She is ready for adoption into a home where she can have access to indoors as well as outdoors and receive lots of cuddles and attention for the rest of her life.

Tulip will need obedience training and we would recommend attending a puppy school which she can now do as she had had all her vaccinations. She will need additional toilet training but is used to toileting on a synthetic grass matt and or puppy pads when inside.

Note: *Tulip is on hold for an adoption*

Tulip was adopted on 09 November 2020 after 2 weeks in foster care



Domestic Short Hair - male

Hi, I am Thomas and I’m in foster care with my brother, Toulouse who has his own profile on the website. We are both looking for a furever home – together would be nice, but not essential – we really just want a loving family, perhaps with some furry friends for us!

Thomas is a lovely fluffy boy, broad faced with a stocky build; his real stand out feature is his beautiful big eyes. He has a soft playful side and a loud contented purrrrrrrr. Thomas is happy to have a cuddle and sleep near people, but prefers to find a quiet corner or cuddle up with Toulouse.

Both brothers love their people, and
• Playing together - chasing, wrestling, rumbling, balls with bells, mice, toes and fluffy toys.
• Exploring - climbing, sneaking, hiding, climbing legs, and wriggling behind furniture, windows and beds.
• Technology - walking on screens and keyboards, sitting in front of screens, and Thomas even likes playing chase the mouse on the iPad!!!!! A perfect work from home companion….?

If the brothers go to separate homes, Thomas would love a family with children and other animals and lots of cuddles and play. He will provide his new family with lots of affection and fun times. He is an indoor only kitty.

Thomas has been microchipped and vaccinated. His adoption fee includes de-sexing.

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

Thomas was adopted on 07 November 2020 after 4 weeks in foster care



Domestic Medium Hair - female

Vivy was abandoned as a very sick, very fluffy, little kitten. With treatment and love, she took a full month to regain health, strength and develop into an active and social kitty. She loves to be pet and really enjoys wand toys, zooming and exploring. She has large feet that are nice to hold when she is resting but this is accompanied by bites as she settles down for a nap. She will also bite toes and lick noses!

Vivy was adopted on 06 November 2020 after 1 month in foster care
