Phoenix

Phoenix

short hair domestic - male

Slim brown/grey tabbie male with green eyes.
He used to live on the streets, was severely underweight and presented unwell originally. He's extremely affectionate and behaves more like a dog than a cat (very stoic, follows you around head butting you, chirping and talking to you).
He has been around a small terrier type dog and is very laid back and tolerant with him. Doesn't seem to have any fear of him. He's become an indoor cat, has used several type of kitty litters with no trouble. Seems to get along with other cats as well.

He has had quite a few vet visits in his bid to become well from a sinus infection and dental issues and is looking for sponsorship to help with his medical bills.

Charlie

Charlie

Cavalier King Charles Spaniel - female - 8 years and 11 months

Charlie has come into DCH care via a Western Sydney Animal Shelter.
She is 8 years old and is a Cavalier around 6.5 kg. We don't know much about her background other than she found herself at the pound.

Charlie came into care with a damaged eye. She was treated with Antibiotics for a week and had surgery on 6/12 to remove the eye.

She has been diagnosed with a Mild Heart Murmur which is common with the breed. No management is needed for it at this time. She has an Umbilical hernia which will be remove when she is desexed after recovering from the eye removal

Charlie does suffer from Anxiety and has issues with separation. She longs to be with you and having pats and licking you. She is very people focused and friendly and just wants to be loved and to be a spoilt companion dog.

When left alone she will bark and will carry on until she has company. She is currently on medication to help reduce the anxiety.

Charlie won't be ready for adoption until sometime in January.

**Sponsorship required. Due to her additional medical needs including Eye removal and Anxiety medications we are seeking additional sponsorship of Charlie to help cover her medical costs.**

Charlie has been in foster care since 26 November 2019, for 2 months

Betty

Betty

British Bulldog - female

All the Animals that come to DCH are in need of care but some much more than others. This gorgeous girl is Betty and she came into our care from the local council shelter.

We are unsure how Betty came to have these wounds but the vets have suggested a dog attack. Betty has required surgery, blood tests, 2 X Rays and a one night stay with fluids.

Betty's vet treatment has come to $1200 so far and we are seeking donations from our supporters to help us with this cost.

If you would like to donate please see the links below.

Our primary focus is to get Betty the medical treatment she needs and to ensure she is returned to full health.

Lucky Betty found a caring home!

Oscar, Millie, Toby

Oscar, Millie, Toby

Staffy x Kelpie - female

These 4 puppies were abandoned with their litter mates early and although lucky enough to come into rescue from the pound they have sadly come down with Parvo and are currently fighting for life at the vets. Luckily little Millie and Tina, the sisters, don't seem as badly affected as their brothers who at this stage are on a drip at the vets and we just have our fingers crossed they are strong enough to make it through.

We are looking at vet bills in excess of $5,000 for these pups, If you can assist by sponsoring these puppies please see how below.

Update 30/4/18: Sadly Toby and Milly didn't make it, thankfully Oscar is recovering well and is home from hospital. He will be ready for adoption in a few weeks when he has fully recovered.

Storm

Storm

British Bulldog - female

This young girl has come into care needed some extensive vet work. She has luxating patella's and eye issues which will both need corrective surgery. This is estimated to cost $2,000 and we are seeking donations to help sponsor her surgery.

She will obviously not be ready for adoption until after these have been done and she has fully recovered but luckily for her we do have a list of eager families waiting to meet her afterwards, so at this stage no adoption enquiries please.

Storm was adopted on 26 April 2018 after 1 month in foster care

Thor

Thor

Kelpie x - male

Thor hasn't had the best start to life, he was hit by a car and taken to he vets where he was found to have extensive nerve damage to the front leg. All the nerves were dead and he ended up with a leg that was unusable and was causing him grief.

Sadly Thor has had his leg amputated and is now on the hunt for a loving forever home that can see past his looks and love him for the fantastic personality that he has.

Thor gets along with dogs well and enjoys playing just like all puppies. He has a kind and happy personality and would suit most homes.

If you can offer Thor a loving Forever Home please email us a bit about yourself and your home.

*Update: Thor has had his surgery and it's been successful. Costs are $886, if you can help sponsor these additional fees for Thors vet expenses please see below on how you can donate*

Thor was adopted on 09 February 2017 after 2 weeks in foster care
