Cisco

Cisco

tabby - male

Hi, I'm Cisco. I'm about 4 months old. I'm an outgoing boy and I currently live with 2 huge dogs and a smaller puppy. We all get along great. It's nice to be loved. I'm your typical playful ball of fluff and I'm eager to meet my furever mum or dad. Will that be you? If you'd like to meet me, please contact my carer Rod whose details appear below. Thanks, looking forward to meeting you!

Cisco was adopted on 19 October 2018 after 2 months in foster care

Sadie

Sadie

Kelpie cross - female

My name is Sadie and I am all about humans, humans, humans. I cannot get enough of the love, and will live everyday making you guys satisfied with hugs. I was rescued from a regional pound on August 18th, and have since shown this loving side of myself. I would really suit a home where I am an only dog, as I can get a bit jealous if other dogs get the love and in cases have shown to be a bit reactive.

However, at my current home I love cuddles with cats (see photo) and am sharing sleeping quarters with 2 older dogs. I think slow introductions would be perfect and then hopefully we can share the love around! As I said though, I am a people pleaser and am very obedient and toilet trained. I'm good on the lead but again can be strong if other dogs are present.

It looks like my carers think I spent a lot of time in kennels as a breeder, as I have had a few litters and am a bit shy. I think that is why I can't get enough of the human attention now. I am desexed, vaccinated and heartworm tested, and am free to go to my new home.

Please contact Rod, my current carer, on 0418 239763 to organise to say hello to me. I can't wait. Love, Sadie.

Maggie

Maggie

Border Collie x - female

Woof Woof, Hi, I'm Maggie, your next favourite canine. I came into foster care after a temporary medical condition reduced my chances of getting adopted. I will be all better by mid November.

In the meantime, if you'd like to meet me and are happy to wait until I get desexed in about 3 weeks, I'd love to meet you.

I am a large Border Collie x. I was described by the pound as timid with humans and friendly with dogs.

Well, after eventually getting into my foster carer's car, I settled down and by the time we were half way home, I licked her on the nose and was laying across the back seat with my paws on her lap. (She wasn't driving!) After arriving at her place, I checked out the garden and then met her dog. I was so happy to see her that I got overexcited and knocked her 7kg, 15 year old body over. She went inside and I sat outside waiting to play with her again. My foster carer sat outside with me most of the day and now knows I love belly rubs and I like to put my paws on her lap.

I am fully grown and weigh approximately 28 kgs. I can sit, stay and am very obedient.

I would love you to register your interest with my foster carer. Many thanks for your interest, talk to you soon.. Maggie xx

Please note, it appears Maggie prefers female to male company and will need a special sensible adopter to help her through her behavioural issues.

Maggie was adopted on 17 October 2018 after 1 weeks in foster care

Sampson

Sampson

Bull Arab x Dalmation - male

Sampson is one of 6 x Bull Arab x Dalmation puppies that have been surrendered into care from Rural NSW. He is a lovely, dark brindle boy, looking for a Forever home where he can be active, safe and loved.

Sampson will need to be taken on daily walks as he has great stamina and needs plenty of exercise so he doesn't get bored. As Sampson will be a big adult boy, he will also need his training continued, so that he grows into a responsible, obedient member of your family. He has already started lead training!

Sampson will be 1st vaccinated, microchipped, wormed and desexed, as part of the adoption fee.

If you are looking for a big, friendly puppy who gets on well with other dogs, and would like to meet Sampson, or his litter mate, Delilah, please contact Nikki.

Felix

Felix

DSH - male

Sadly Felix is looking for a new home after his owner passed away. He is being looked after by family but he is not coping with living with small children.

Despite his age Felix has no health issues and is still quite active. He has a lovely nature and enjoys being brushed and sharing your bed. He still plays with toys and enjoys getting lots of human attention.

He has always been indoor only and has never lived with another cat. He has lived with a bigger, docile, dog before quite successfully.

Felix is desexed, vaccinated and microchipped and comes with his scratching post, beds and some food. If you can offer Felix a loving home please contact us.

Kinsey

Kinsey

Dsh - male

Kinsey and Jelly Bean (see her website profile) are lovely, friendly cats who are looking for a new home either together or individually.
At 10 years old they now find they need a new home because the advent of a toddler and an impending baby means their working parents are unable to provide sufficient loving care and attention. While it may be nice for the pair to continue living together happily, they are unrelated and have quite different personalities.

Kinsey is a gray/blue and white big boy with super soft fur. He is still fairly active and adventurous, but he particularly loves to curl up in bed with his human at night. On cold nights, Kinsey even likes to sleep under the covers given the chance! Despite his seniority, Kinsey can be adventurous; he is an indoor cat, and any outings must be supervised.

Kinsey currently lives with a dog, with which he gets along very well. He has also lived happily with a number of foster cats coming and going in previous years. He should adapt well to a loving family with other critters, and will probably be perfectly happy to have older children to play with.

Both Kinsey and Jelly Bean are microchipped, desexed, and up to date on their vaccinations and vet visits. They have had no major health issues.

Kinsey’s adoption fee is $50; if you would like to provide a home for both kitties, there is a discount price of $85 for the pair.

Please contact Mel, on 0404741169, to arrange a visit at their current home in Penrith.

Rooster

Rooster

Cattle x - male

Hi, I'm Rooster. I'm a loveable and affectionate Cattle x and arrived from a Country pound on 18th August, 2018. I was a very shy and timid boy when I arrived there and after a month, was wagging my tail and greeting the staff at the shelter. I went a bit backward when I arrived at Sutherland, wanting to sleep amongst the hedges and hardly coming out, however 6 days on I have come out of my shell again and am romping around the back yard and now spend most of my time on the alfresco, either on the banana lounge or in one of my 2 beds.

I am sharing my carer with two other dogs, a 12 year old cattle x corgi and a 15 year old fox terrier x chihuahua who walk under me if I stand still long enough. Being older, they don't play as much as I would like, however I am an independent guy and enjoy company, or my own.

My foster carer bought me a teddy bear which is my favourite toy. I also love her hand-towel and a Kong which is full of treats. I enjoy a varied diet and have the most beautiful teeth.

Due to my timidness, I haven't been heartworm tested, vaccinated or desexed yet. My foster carer must earn my trust in order to take me to the vet, which is slowly happening. As I said, I've come a long way so far. So if you would like to meet me, I'd be thrilled to meet you and hopefully find my furever home.

Rooster will thrive in a special understanding household who will give him the initial space he needs to open up.

Rooster was adopted on 03 October 2018 after 1 month in foster care
