Vader

Vader

Pugalier - male

15/7/2020 - Update - Vader has received just under 100 applications for adoption. We are currently reviewing all the applications received to date and will be in contact with a few specific people to narrow down the search for his forever home. His profile has been placed on hold while we review applications.

Vader is a Pugalier who is ¾ Pug and ¼ Cavalier. He is a beautiful natured dog who is a very loyal companion. He loves attention and company and enjoys a good walk. Vader has been an indoors dog with access to the outdoors. He has grown up with a Labrador and recently while in foster has had a Beaglier for company. Vader is still young and loves to play and can be a very active in his play.

He gets along well with kids and other dogs. He is very curious and always entertaining.

He needs a home where he will get lots of love, attention and exercise. He needs an active home to give him the attention that he needs. He needs daily exercise and lots of social interaction.

During Covid, he has been isolated in a home and has not received the exercise or training that he needs. Vader is not fully toilet trained but he has been routine trained and will go outside first thing in the morning to do his business. He still has a few accidents but it’s a vast improvement on when he first arrived. Vader has a puppy pad inside at night just in case he cannot hold it.

Vader does have separation anxiety issues and struggles when left alone. The first week when he arrived into care was quite difficult and there were a few sleepless nights as he adjusted to a new home and new environment. He constantly wants to be with you for company and does not like being left in a room on his own. He is suitable for a home where someone is home more often then not and won’t be adopted out to a home where the owners are at work full time and he would be left alone.

Vader is very food driven and will eat anything put in front of him. He needs a slow me down bowl to slow his eating. He is best on a grain free diet as he was originally gassy etc until we moved him to a grain free diet.

Vader has learnt some basic commands like Sit, Toilet (which is a work in progress) and is starting to get Shake. He still needs further on-going training and socialisation. His personality is a little stubborn but with repetition he can be trained.

Vader has had his 3 vaccinations and has been recently desexed. He has received regular worming treatments and has been treated for fleas. He is in good health however there are some common breed aliments that you need to be aware of prior to adopting Vader. Please read the breed information at the bottom of the profile and make sure you have researched the breed to ensure you understand Vader’s breed.

Expressions of interest in adopting Vader are welcome. When expressing interest, please provide as much information about yourself, your home, your dog experience, your work routine/hours and any other pets that you have. We will select our top few expressions of interest and enter into conversations about Vader and will arrange for a meet and greet with a select few people to eventually find him a home that is suitable for his needs. His listing maybe placed on hold once we have received sufficient expressions of interest to allow our part-time volunteer to assess the applications. Meet and Greets will only be possible to the selected few and will take place outside of business hours or on the weekends.

Vader is located in the Quakers Hill Area.
Not available for interstate adoptions.
Meet and greets must be attended in person prior adoption. A home visit maybe required to ensure the home is suitable for Vader.
Covid-19 distancing rules are in place for meet and greets.

Ace

Domestic Long Hair - male

Ace is a fluffy little sweetheart. He loves pats and is very affectionate. He is very playful and loves to curl up on our laps once he has finished playing. He has the sweetest little meow.

Disney

Disney

DSH - female

Having spent the last 3 months in foster care, she has learnt that evenings are best spent snuggled on her foster humans lap, days are spent playing and snoozing with her kitty friend, and every morning when the bedroom door opens, is an opportunity to come up to her foster human for morning neck scratches and cuddles.

Disney is cautious but trusting and would suit a quiter home. She is loving and affectionate, and will regularly come to you for cuddles and pats when you're sitting quietly on the couch, or in bed. She would make a wonderful sleeping companion if you wanted a kitty to sleep on your bed, and would make friends with your existing cat/s.

Disney is looking for an indoor-only home with a caring, patient owner that is willing to give her the time she needs to settle into her new home.

Her adoption fee includes her desexing, 1st vaccination and microchipping, as well as her being current with flea and deworming schedules.

Disney lives with the carer's resident cat, and is located in Windsot, NSW.

Disney was adopted on 19 July 2020 after 7 months in foster care

Violet (now Coco)

Violet (now Coco)

Domestic Short Hair - female

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.

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

Trixie

Trixie

Kelpie X - Chipped as Austral - female

Trixie is an adorable 2.5 year old Kelpie cross.

She has been in foster care for 2 months, after her owner passed away.

Moving from a farm in the country has been quite a change for Trixie as she is now surrounded by a lot of new unfamiliar noises and has taken time to adjust to city life.

Trixie is quiet dog, who will happily lie all day in the sun, getting pats on the head.

She is starting to come out of her shell, and walks fine on a lead around the backyard, but not so much out the front as cars can cause a fright.

She has been desexed, microchipped, and vaccinated. She is due for her next vaccination in June 2021.

During the course of vet treatments we had X-rays's completed and found that Trixie had a broken leg in the past which was untreated and healed on its own. The vets have decided no surgery is needed at this time but this may impact her down the track.

Located in Kellyville NSW.

Stan

Stan

DSH - male

Stan (the man) is a friendly, affectionate and loving cat. He meows in the morning for the bedroom door to be opened so he can come up to you for a neck scratch, and follows your around the house. While he often snoozes on your lap, he isn't needy and often chooses to sit right near you, or on your feet. While his foster carer worked from home, he preferred to snooze in the cat bed on the desk.

Stan will suit a variety of family environments, as he has been exposed to several dogs and a variety of children. He has grown up in care with multiple different cats of varying ages, and will need to go to an indoor only home.

Stan was originally rescued from a Warehouse facility in Penrith when he was a tiny kitten of 200 grams and was bottle fed for several weeks. Stan was from a litter of 6 kittens.

He can be visited at the adoption enclosure at PETstock in Marsden Park.
