Mo

Mo

Himalayian - male

At 10 years young, Mo was abandoned and left to die by his previous owner, severely neglected and starved. He came into care a walking skeleton with a terrible flea infestation. His beautiful coat and skin had patches missing and he was filthy and crusted with dirt. His teeth were in a terrible condition and 4 had to be removed. He is currently under veterinary treatment and on a specialised diet to ensure he has a happy and long life.

Mo's additional vet costs have so far been quoted at around $944. Thanks to Ann, Joanne, Jo, Eleanor, Anne, Lainie, Peter and Tonya for their generous donations. Mo's additional vet fees have now been fully sponsored

Mo was adopted on 05 August 2012 after 5 months in foster care

Akora

Aussie Bulldog - female

Akora was adopted on 05 August 2012 after 2 weeks in foster care

MO

MO

Himalayian - male

Mo is the sweetest, most beautiful and affectionate senior citizen you will ever meet. He loves to be brushed and stroked and will sit there for hours while you pamper him. He adores attention and TLC and will lie on his back purring his heart out for a brush and a tummy rub. Mo is still very playful and don't be fooled by his age, he runs, jumps and plays like a kitten at times! At 10 years young, Mo was abandoned and left to die by his previous owner, severely neglected and starving. Mo lives with his foster carer, 2 children, a gentle cat friendly dog and 2 adult cats who are also Himalayans.

He is not fazed by any other animals as long as they are not aggressive and he will fit in to a home with existing pets and/or children. Mo is quite afraid of my 4 year old son though and would best be adopted by a family or individual with older children. Mo will only be adopted to the very best of homes and preferably to an individual who has knowledge of the Himalyan breed and care. He will need a family with time to pamper him and give him lots of love and he will reward you with his sweet and affectionate purrsonality. Unlike most Himalayans, Mo is not double coated so his beautiful fur is quite easy to maintain. His care will involve brushing at least once a day which he absolutely adores and he will need to be an inside cat only as he is quite afraid of the outside world.

Mo is litter trained, desexed, wormed, flea treated, microchipped and vaccinated and he is available for adoption now. Mo needs to stay on a high quality diet as he has had food allergies in the past but healthwise, Mo has had a full veterinary check and he is very healthy with no issues. Enquiries regarding Mo are more than welcome and

Hankie

Hankie

DMH - male

Hankie was found all on his own by the Ranger for Hawkesbury and put with a litter of kittens that were lucky enough to be rescued by our carer. He was a tiny little thing and at one stage we thought he wasn?t going to make it but he has beaten the odds and is a very happy, healthy little kitten.

Hankie has a special spot in his carers heart as he is a most loving, affectionate, confident, curious, playful, adorable little kitten and they have been through a lot together. He uses his front paws a lot usually to help clean out the kitty litter or pat me softly on the face when cuddling him.

Hankie is living with 2 older cats and maltese dog and gets on well with all of them. He really is a most beautiful little man and if you would like to meet him he is living at Banksia.

Hankie was adopted on 04 August 2012 after 3 days in foster care

Pumpkin

Pumpkin

Exotic Shorthair - female

Sadly pumpkin came into care with a number of health issues, including a gastro bug and cat flu. She has now developed Pnuemonia and the vets have advised that she has some severe immune system problems. This explains why she wasn't responding to treatment as the other cats who came into care at the same time as her have. Sadly this may mean that Pumpkin isn't rehomeable but she is being is being cared for in a loving foster home while her condition is monitored daily.

Pumpkin's additional vet costs have so far come to $780. *Thanks to J.Mitchell, A.Benson, J.Newby, Eleanor, N.Honeyman, S.Buttress and Tarah for their donations towards Pumpkins care*

Update 10/10/12: Great news for Pumpkin, after a final series of blood tests and treatment she has been given the all clear, this means she can be rehomed and should go on to lead a normal, healthy life from here on in.

Pumpkin was adopted on 01 August 2012 after 4 days in foster care

Pumpkin

Pumpkin

Exotic Shorthair - female

Pumpkin is a female Exotic Shorthair cat. She is four years old and has an absolutely divine temperament. Her purr motor is always switched on! Pumpkin has a gentle, sweet personality which echoes the traits of her ancestors, the Longhaired Persian. She loves attention and rolling on her back for belly rubs! Headbutts are her signature move and as she has previously lived with other cats and dogs, she can adapt to different home situations. Pumpkins coat only requires a weekly brush to keep it in good shape. As with other flat faced breeds, her eyes are prone to tear overflow and staining so she would need these regularly wiped clean. She is very accepting of having this done to her and as she has also been used to taking regular baths, one can simply pop her in the tub for a scrub and she makes no protest! Pumpkin isnt a fussy eater and has been enjoying beef mince and both wet and dry cat food whilst in my care. She is missing a front tooth so can have some difficulty in chewing larger dry food bits but if served smaller dry kibble, she manages well. Simply put, Pumpkin is a sweet loving girl who greatly deserves your attention! Her adoption price of $200 includes her desexing, vaccination and microchip. She is also up to date with her flea and worm treatments.

Tabitha

Tabitha

Exotic Shorthair - female

Tabitha and Dolly are two Exotic Shorthair Cats. Commonly known as the 'lazy mans Persian' they have the endearing, affectionate nature of the Persian with a bit of cheekiness thrown in. Exotics do still shed a fair bit and they are used to be groomed and bathed. Both girls love other cats and are used to dogs. These girls are used to an indoor life so do not have the street smarts of outdoor cats. They would do best in an indoor home or with restricted access to outdoors. They could be adopted together or seperated but would appreciate a home with another cat or plenty of company as they are used to this. They love to curl up on your lap and are not fussy eaters.

Tabitha was adopted on 31 July 2012 after 6 days in foster care

Charon

Charon

DMH - female

Charon is a friendly girl who has been a great mum to her four kittens. Now that her kittens have all been rehomed she would like to find a loving home of her own too. Charon likes being patted and will sleep on the end of your bed. She L-O-V-E-S her food and you'll suddenly become her best friend is a barbequed chicken is brought into the house! Charon prefers to live indoors even though she has access to the outside at her current carer's house. She has big beautiful yellow eyes that look like the moon

so much so she is named after the the planet Pluto's moon. Charon gets along with other cats and is 100% litter trained and ready for her new home now.

Charon was adopted on 31 July 2012 after 8 months in foster care

Riley

Riley

Collie Rough - male

Riley was advertised on Gumtree for $999.99 by his family. There were no takers and the family were on the way to the pound with only 4 days before they moved overseas and they still had not made any arrangements for Riley when they heard about DCH's Collie Rough carer. Riley was so dirty and matted but after a bath and 4 hours of grooming he is back on the road to looking like the stunning boy he should. This poor boy has been debarked and I have no idea why as he is not an excessive barker at all, in fact he hardly ever barks unless the other Collies are playing and chasing balls, which is what they do when having fun they bark, otherwise he is happy to curl up in a dog bed and have a nice nap when all is quiet. He travels well in the car, is now housetrained and is just such a beautiful soft natured boy. Riley needs a family that will make him very much a part of their family as he has been neglected far too long.

He is located at Rydal (just past Lithgow) and a property inspection is required before he can be rehomed.

Riley was adopted on 28 July 2012 after 2 months in foster care

Troy

Troy

Rotti x - male

Troy is a happy go lucky boy who loves everybody he meets. Troy walks on a lead well and is very loving. He is healthy, desexed and up to date with needles. Troy is house trained and loves to guard the house. Troy has never shown any aggression towards children but is not around them a lot. As he is a large dog he loves to be exercised. He is still quite young he can be a bit excitable and would need a little more training.
