She loves human contact so would suit a family who has time to give her lots of attention.

Zippa 9yo Female Rhodesian Ridgeback and her son Cody 7yo x bred. Both super friendly, quiet, happy dogs! Good with kids and people, ok with other dogs, healthy and vaccinated. Medium sized dogs, not as large as other RRs. In urgent need of a new happy home together!

Bill

Bill

DSH - male

In late November Bill was rushed to the emergency vets with what we now know was a severe urinary infection. It appears Bill was bitten by an insect which was causing him pain in the lower back and he was avoiding urinating because of this. He became quite ill but thankfully has now made a full recovery.

Bill's additional vet costs have so far come to $430.

Thank you to Ellen, Katie, Meredith, Alison, Nicole, Ellene and Peter for their generous donations towards Bills care. Bills vet fees have now been fully covered.

Bill was adopted on 24 November 2012 after 8 months in foster care

Bill and Ben

Bill and Ben

DSH

Bill and Ben were found on a farm where they faced a sad life with very little food and no care, when they came into care they were very frightened but as much as they hissed and growled they have never tried to bite or scratch, they are now friendly little boys after they get to know you and love to be stroked and cuddled and are ready with a very grateful purr.

Bill and Ben are becoming so cute, no growling and hissing any more, and Bill the larger who was more scared rubs around my legs and flops down for belly rubs. I'd have to say they're the gentlest cats with absolutely no claws or mouthing us, even in play. They both purr when picked up and mostly come when called, love their food probably too much, they got weighed today and are 2.9 and 3.3 kilos, so i do think i need to cut down on the dry food a bit! it's been really rewarding having them go from hiding and hissing, to now being like any other cat, I do think billy might not be suitable for small children as he still is a little wary of things and so non aggressive that they might be a little overwhelming for him. Bill has the tiny squeak and Ben the big miaow!

Bill

Bill

DSH - male

Bill was found on a farm with his brother Ben where they faced a sad life with what little food they could find for themselves and no human to care for them. When they first came into care they were very frightened but as much as they hissed they never tried to bite or scratch. Bill is now such a friendly boy and loves to be stroked and cuddled and is always ready with a very grateful purr. He is so cute, and rubs around my legs and flops down for belly rubs. I'd have to say that he is one of the gentlest cats with absolutely no clawing or mouthing us, even in play. He purrs when picked up and mostly comes when called, and really loves his food. It's been really rewarding seeing him go from hiding and hissing, to now being like any other cat although I think maybe Billy might notbe suitable for very young children as he still is a tad wary of things and being so non aggressive, tiny little kids might be a little overwhelming for him but he would be fine with older children. Bill has the tiniest little squeak which makes him so adorable.

Sam

Sam

Thoroughbred - gelding

Sam is an older boy who's happy being a paddock ornament but still enjoys being saddled up for a plod around the paddock. He is a lovely gentle horse and not much phases him. As an ex-riding school horse he would be suitable for an inexperienced rider or someone who needs to gain back their confidence. Sam will stand patiently for a grooming session, is easy to rug, catch, and is great with the farrier and dentist. He's up to date with vaccinations, worming and dental.

Desiree

Desiree

DSH - female

Desiree grew up a shop cat and was sent to the pound when the new shop owners didn't want her any more. She was a very well loved fixture at the local shops and people rallied around to find somewhere for her to go so she wouldn't be put down.

Despite having no fixed abode she's very used to being handled and comes when called. Desi likes to be patted but it makes her a little nervous when she is picked up. She has never bitten or scratched anyone and is very friendly to people she knows she can trust. Desi loves both being an inside and outside cat, however, she will always need access to the outdoors as she has grown up 'spraying' and, unfortunately, this bad habit cannot be broken. She is okay with other cats but would prefer to be the only feline member in the household. Desiree has been in care for 3 years and is desperate to find her forever home.

If you can offer a home to a outdoorsy type of girl please contact us.

Desiree was adopted on 13 November 2012 after 3.1 years in foster care
