Lola came into our lives some 7 years ago as a mature 6 year old lady. She was loving and loyal. Sadly she suddenly passed away 4 years later but, there is still a picture of her on our fridge and she is still remembered as one of our family. She gave us so much love in the 4 short years that we had her. Thanks DCH for sending her to us.




I found Isabella and some of her brothers and sisters at my unit block last year. Unfortunately not all survived but Roslyn from DCH nursed Isabella and her sister back to health. I visited often and fell in love with her and decided to adopt her. It was the best decision ever as Isabella has the most wonderful personality, is so affectionate and is my constant companion. Unfortunately, I have spoilt her so much she has turned into a bit of a princess but I couldn't do without her now.

From rescuing a ragdoll kitten I was hooked.. After another adoption for a another rag doll fell thru, I had all but given up..

Finding the listing for my two stunning boys, they needed a new place to call home.

I felt for their owners. But I knew they where the ones. Since they have come to live on our farm. They have both become the most loving an sweet smoochie boys, I can not thank DCH enough nor Ben :-).



We got Major in November 2005. He had been dumped at three weeks of age along with his 7 siblings. When we saw Major we were instantly won over by his beautiful nature. This year Major is turning 10 and i couldn't imagine my life without him. He has been a friend / playmate to my two children and my companion. He is always at my feet and we always say he is my shadow.

I wanted to adopt.

I looked on your website and saw a cute Orange kitten. He is now called Edward. Your foster carer Sarah invited me over to meet him and I spent a delightful hour with Sarah and 3 lively kittens.

At night Edward sleeps on my bed as Sarah predicted he would. He stands on me at night and purrs very loudly,waking me up to pat him. He often lays across my body so I can stroke his back and belly. It is a great Life..but I am the lucky one. I truly won the cat lottery when Edward came into our lives.

Your foster carers are amazing. I am so thrilled I met Sarah and Edward came into our lives. I cannot imagine life without him.

Kind Regards,
Sharon from Corrimal.

Hi Judie,

We adopted brother and sister Oscar and Lexie in 2005. They are both alive and well and still almost as energetic as they were back then, being cross Border Collie Labs, they've always enjoyed the outdoor activities.




Hi, I adopted Mocca (now Mocco) October 2007.

I just wanted to say, what a gorgeous dog he turned out to be. Has always been a bit if a handful, maybe the mix of his breed (Jack Russell x ridgeback). But we love him dearly & is an adored member of the family.

Well fine for doing such amazing work!!!

Pic: Mocco with his best friend Lucky (another rescue who was badly a used), see what a beautiful boy he turned out!!!

Hi Megan

We adopted Leo the Pomeranian (renamed Orlando Leonardo) in 2009! BTW, he's doing great.

We were told he was 1 hour away from being put down. Now he leads a pretty good life with us...

Here are two recent shots.....
