Stanley

Stanley

My daughter wanted a kitten when she was 13 years old and it couldn't be just any cat - we hunted around for the one special kitty.

We came across Lyndall, a foster mum through DCH who told us that this kitten Charlie had been dumped in a park inside a plastic bag and was 5 weeks old when he was found.

It was instant love. We adopted him and renamed him Stanley.

He is gentle, affectionate, and a big baby. He needs to eat special kibble as he has crystals in his pee pee but other than that, he is a healthy, robust boy who is loved by all.

Tchao

Tchao

I always wanted to adopt a dog from a rescue centre. I found the perfect dog from DCH and couldn't be happier. Its such a rewarding feeling taking in a homeless dog.
The whole adoption process with DCH was so smooth and easy. The volunteers do such amazing selfless work for the animals.
I feel incredibly lucky to have found such a beautiful and loving dog in my life.
Its well worth the time and effort in finding the right dog to suit your lifestyle and saving an animal that needs a second chance.

Casper

Casper

We initially foster Casper from him being 5 months old. He was being bullied by the cats in his foster home at the time & we could see why... He was the softest timid little thing! But once he got to know us he really came out of his shell & made a habit of having a 5am party, running around our bedroom and jumping on us until we woke up! When somebody got in contact about adopting him we realised just how much we'd fallen in love with the little guy & simply could not let him go so we adopted him! :)
Unofficially we celebrate his birthday on Halloween with him being a ghost cat & all ! :) He's now 2 years old, very independent but the most loveable loyal boy ever. He's definitely our 'baby'.
The process of adoption with DCH was easy but thorough. They really care about the animals in their care & want the best for each & everyone of them. Thank you DCH for giving us our forever fur baby! Brooke & Joey xxx

Muffin

Muffin

I adopted Muffin 3 years ago, as a kitten. She seemed so fearless when I brought her home, I called her Tiger. My other cat Geoffrey was in cat heaven with this new toy! Tiger has always been sweet and gentle, and puts up with Geoffrey very well. Tiger comes to me for affection when I seem to need her most, and I think she's happy here.

Sammy Crockford

Sammy Crockford

I found Sammy through DCH, he is my perfect match. DCH care as much as you do, that you and your pet are perfect together, Sammy's foster family (the Davies) worked with me to make sure that we would both be happy. There isn't enough space to say how much Sammy means to me. I can say that the love and work of the Davies and DCH put in made it possible and Sammy and I will both be forever thankful.

Wild Thing

Wild Thing

We fell in love with Wid Thing as soon as we saw his little lopsided, scared face on DCH's website. He wasn't friendly and hated to be touched or picked up, but we knew we had to have him. Through perseverance and unconditional love (and an abundance of food)3 years on WT has come around to be a HUGE (literally-8.5kg) personality, playful and (sometimes) loving boy, with the most glorious tail you've ever seen :). Once every few days WT comes in to the bedroom in the morning and climbs up on my chest, purrs as loud as can be and places his paws on my face. It only lasts 5 mins but it is all the reward I need for the difficult times when he didn't want to be touched. It hasn't been easy but I think WT was meant for us. Along with my husband, he is the love of my life!

Tinkerbell

Tinkerbell

This is Tinkerbell we adopted and has proven to be quite a character. As you can see she has come along way and loves being bathed and having her hair done and getting dressed up.
She just loves humans and always comes running to you.
We are very grateful to be able to give her a loving home and she has now become a very special part of our mixed family.
Thankyou to DCH you do a wonderful job.

Larry ( formerly Chucky when i picked him up)

Larry ( formerly Chucky when i picked him up)

I came to the place where Larry ( than named Chucky) was staying. hadnt sat down for more than a minute and he came right up and sat on my lap. How could i say no after that. He was all shaved and a little malnourished still, as he had arrived in quite a state to DCH carers. But in no time at all and as you can see from the pictures he was returned to the giant fluff ball status that he deserved. I cannot recommend enough to folks looking for a pet to try DCH. Larry is the best! Long Live Larry! thank you DCH

Tangelo (Bella)
