Rachael

Rachael

Domestic Medium Hair - female

Rachael is a very beautiful natured 8 week old kitten.

She is very friendly and has a great little purr. She loves nothing more than to snuggle into your neck and have head rubs and she purrs her little head off. She is very affectionate and has very soft fur.

She would be suited to a quite couple or family who can provide her lots of love and attention.

She does not like loud noises and runs away from our dog.

She was rescued on the 6/6/2014.

She will be available after approx 20/6.

Rachael was adopted on 27 June 2014 after 3 weeks in foster care

Maddy

Maddy

Miniature Poodle - female

Maddy can into DCH care after her elderly owner realised that Maddy who is a young and very active pup was just way too much for her to cope with. Maddy is a full of life little pup who loves to run and play and would suit a very active family who have loads of time and energy to give her the life she so needs and deserves.

Maddy is a loving, playful and very excitable little pup and she would be better matched with a experienced family who will give her the on-going training she needs to allow her to mature into a sensible adult. She is house trained and must go to a home that will allow her in to be inside with them as part of the family.

Maddy gets along well with other dogs and is learning to respect cats. She would be better off in a no cat home as she chases cats, not to hurt them but they run and she chases.

Maddy was adopted on 23 June 2014 after 1 week in foster care

Mitchi

Mitchi

Domestic Short Hair - male

Mitchi was rescued from death-row with his step brother. They were both taken into my care and I must say these kitties are true fighters.

There wasn't much hope for Mitchi as he was very sick but little did we know just how much he was fighting, with Vet treatments and the love and care given, he was able to fight it and he is as healthy as any cat I have come across.

Mitchi was found on the streets and taken to the pound at around 4months old, he was an extremely frightened Kitty who was very shy, Judging by the way he was I believe he may have been abused, and he didnt really like affection. But the time I have had him in my care, he has slowly come out of his shell and is such a beautiful and extremely playful kitty, who is gradually becoming more affectionate.

Mitchi is very handsome with beautiful markings, he has become more and more friendlier, not just with me but those living in my household, though in company of many guests he is a tad frightened at big noises which can be understandable.
He loves to play and has become adventurous and curious at exploring other parts of our home, he is a happy Kitty who now enjoys cuddles.

Mitchi is very well toilet trained.

He needs a loving forever home.

Mitchi was adopted on 21 June 2014 after 2 months in foster care

Aero

Aero

DSH - male

Aero was named after a character in a Nintendo game - "Aero the Acrobat" as he used to do amazing acrobatic tricks when he was little. He is now a big boy with a dark brown ginger coat. He does still think that he can run and bounce around everywhere though & still behaves like a small kitten.

He was found in the fork of a tree in an industrial site as a small kitten. Aero absolutely loves our 2 large dogs & will spend ages chewing on the fur between their toes & rubbing them all over for as long as they will put up with it. He is a relaxed boy who gets along with cats & kittens of all ages. He would not be suitable if you have a dog who might snap at a cat as he has no fear whatsoever of dogs. He is located in the Hills District of Sydney.

Aero was adopted on 21 June 2014 after 4 months in foster care

Pam is friendly and playful and she also loves a cuddle. She is a perfect little kitty who also eats well and has grown fast. She is also litter trained and would suit a household with other cats

Tate

Tate

Collie Rough - male

The first thing that struck me about these dogs is how affectionate to humans they are. Up to now they may have been very badly neglected all of their lives but this has not affected their relationships with humans in any way, actually they absorb every bit of love and kindness that is shown to them and give it back twofold.

They both crave and need human contact. On his 1st day in foster care, Tate tried to crawl into my lap and under my arm. I think if he could have crawled under my skin he would have - he just wanted to get as close as possible simply from being shown attention. Tate really want to please you, he comes when called, and sits when told. He so wants attention and if another dog is receiving a pat he needs to be in on the action.

Gailee takes her cue from Tate, she is always up for pats and scratches but is a tiny bit more independent than Tate. She is very curious and always looking into and smelling everything, but when she does stop, she has this way of just sitting there and looking at you with trust and waiting for you to call her. Being so thin for so long Gailee is very food focused, but her intensity of searching for any morsel of food is slowly diminishing as she comes to depend on her now very regular meals.

Both dogs love being brushed, which I attribute to the fact that they are getting some of the attention they crave. Gailee actually goes into a state of relaxed bliss during grooming time.

Both dogs are ok with cats - but Gailee does get a little too excited (she does not attack the cats in our household but simply wants to get too close and lick their faces which the cats object to.

Both dogs are also very other dog friendly. Tate and Gailee are really great friends and they are willing to be friends with everyone else.

As I type this description, both dogs are lying faithfully by my feet in the office. They would make a wonderful, warming addition to any household.

They need gentle but firm boundaries in a calm household where they will get lots of love and the attention they so crave.

They both came in with major flea dermatitis but Gailee had been neglected so badly that she has lumps down her back and worm her front teeth down from gnawing into her back all of her life. As soon as she came into care she went straight to a vet where she given a injection of cortisone to try to alleviate the red inflamed skin and open sores along with flea and dermatitis control. Her skin is clearing up but the fur may not grow back properly along her back.

Gailee was adopted on 15 June 2014 after 1 month in foster care

Smeagol

Smeagol

DSH - male

Smeagol came into care after not being adopted from the local pound. He is such a friendly and loving kitten who is purring before you even pick him up, he is good with other cats and isnt worried about my dogs.

Smeagol is very bouncy and playful so will need to be rehomed to a house or larger villa etc. He is not suited to apartment / unit life.

He is waiting for his forever family to find him now :)

Smeagol was adopted on 12 June 2014 after 1 month in foster care

Mittens

Mittens

dmh - male

Mittens is sweet little boy. Can be a little shy at first but once he gets to know you he will be quite affectionate. Mittens is fine with other cats and doesn't seem to mind the dog either. Mittens comes desexed, vac, and mirochipped.
As Mittens has medium length fur he will require some grooming. Quite the handsome boy to have in any household.

Mittens was adopted on 11 June 2014 after 2 weeks in foster care
