Domestic Short Hair - male - 3 months and 2 weeks

Potter is a friendly and playful kitten with a beautiful nature.

He is a curious boy who loves to explore his surroundings.

While he can be a little timid at first, once he gets to know you he is a little rocket pocket that loves head rubs and kisses.

Potter would make a great addition to any family he finds.

Located in Marsden Park

Potter has been in foster care since 06 October 2020, for 2 weeks



shd - male - 3 years and 1 month

Dawson is a lovely smoochie muscular boy. He's very verbal (chirps to you to ask for pats), loves to be brushed and enjoys sitting on the lounge with you in front of the tv. He's also expert at head butting you to encourage you to stroke him.

Dawson is very placid, and can be shy with new people to start off with, but he warmed to his new family quite quickly. This, despite coming into our care as a stray having been patted and fed by a soft hearted animal lover, so we suspect he has lived within a loving family in his earlier life.

He gets along fine with our resident cats but is still rather timid with our small dogs.

We believe Dawson would fit in happily with a quiet family who wants a real people pussycat, perhaps with another feline friend available... It may take a little time for him to settle in, but will be well worth your patience.

Dawson is vet checked, desexed and his vaccinations are up to date. He has also tested negative for Feline Aids. So, he's now raring to find his furever family to love and spoil him in return for his smooches.

If you would like to learn more about Dawson, or visit him at his Hoxton Park foster home, please contact his carer, Karen.

  • When he came into our care, poor Dawson visited the vet several times to resolve a case of conjunctivities, and to treat swollen foot pads which have now cleared up. Any contribution towards his vet expenses would be gratefully received.

    Domestic - female - 1 year and 2 months

    Winter is a beautiful and very friendly cat who is looking for a loving forever home! She is approx 1 years old and was originally found as a street kitten.

    She is an exceptionally engaging and loving cat - very dog like but without all the maintenance! She likes to know what you are up to and sleep the day away next to you on the sofa (or by the chair if you work from home). She is truly the most affectionate cat I have come across - she LOVES to lick you and runs over to the door to greet you when you get home.

    She is not a noisy cat, and has a very sweet little "chirp" and a gorgeous sqeaky purr (which activates as soon as you pat her).

    She eats almost everything (not fussy on types of cat food) and is quite adventurous with human food (loves blueberries - chasing them and eating them!).

    She is very clean and tidy in her litter box, and is not a scratcher. So far she has not jumped on counters, and she does not disturb things or knock things over - very respectful little thing :-)

    Before coming into foster with me, she was rescued up by a kind lady who had three greyhounds - she was fine with this so could definitely live with the right dogs and likely other cats too.

    She enjoys meeting new people and loves to chill with you when you're home (she would like lots of chin scratches if you have time). When you're out, you can find her snoozing the day away in her favourite spots (currently under the desk or spread out on the sofa!).

    And she really is BEAUTIFUL (and knows it!) - she'd love to meet you soon!

    Winter has been in foster care since 20 October 2020, for 1 day



    Persian x Ragdoll - male - 3 years and 6 months

    I am looking for my new forever home.

    I have always been an indoor cat so am looking for a new indoor home.

    I am not a lap cat but I love to be in the same room as you. I love staring out the window, napping at the foot of the bed or on my scratching post.

    I enjoy getting brushed. I love dine treats.

    I would suit an adult only household.

    I will need my updated vaccinations done then I will be ready to be rehomed. I am also desexed and chipped.

    Labrador X Mastiff - male - 9 years

    Stitch is a beautiful 9 year old Labrador X Mastiff. He is an absolute gentleman and is so gentle.

    Through no fault of his own, he is looking for a new home with a new family to take him through his senior years. He would be suited to many families, is very gentle so could be suitable for young children, and is great with other dogs. In fact, Stitch has grown up with another dog so only homes with other dogs will be considered to help keep the transition smooth for him. This would likely help with his current separation anxiety, Stitch did not have this at his old home so it is likely that the big changes have led to it - once he gains back his routine and a doggy friend, we hope this will reduce back down again.

    A large backyard would be ideal for Stitch - his favourite game is fetch. He will use anything available to play fetch with, and will not stop unless they are taken away! As a result, plenty of room to keep running and fit would be great for him, and someone who makes sure he doesn't overdo it as well as he gets too hot and doesn't stop! Stitch LOVES water, and so it would be wonderful if his family would be able to take him regularly to beaches and water so that he can keep cool whilst still playing fetch!

    Stitch is great on the lead - he starts off a little bit strong just as he is excited, but soon calms down and walks really well.

    In his old home, Stitch was outside during the day and inside at night. A place where he is able to choose between whether he goes outside or inside is essential. He certainly loves a good lounge snuggle, so that would also be lovely for him!

    Stitch is desexed, microchipped and will be up to date on vaccinations, worming and flea treatment when he is adopted. Please contact his foster carer, Gemma, on 0435939858 to find out more about Stitch and meet him.

    Stitch has been in foster care since 03 October 2020, for 3 weeks



    DSH - male - 10 months and 1 week

    Seb, a beautiful ginger boy, with striking flash-like eyebrows, is a sibling of Oscar and Sammy whom we recently rehomed; our success encouraged us to bring him into our care to secure his furever home too.

    A typical kitten, Seb loves his sleep, his favourite spot during the day is on his cushion in front of the window, dozing in the sun or watching the world go by.

    When he’s not having a nap he’s very playful and loves to race around the house chasing his toys. We think Seb would benefit from being in a home with another playful kitty friend.

    Seb can still be quite cautious when people are walking around but is getting better with that.

    Like many cats he is still not comfortable with being picked up and cuddled but he’s very friendly and enjoys company. He loves a head scratch and a stroke and will cuddle up to his carer in bed, just to be close. He also makes the cutest little squeak when he wants to be noticed so at times there’s lots of squeaking to be heard.

    Every evening at playtime with his carer he enjoys chasing and leaping around for his bouncy sponge balls and table tennis balls and he has lots of fun chasing anything that has a bell.

    He also enjoys his treats and it’s become a bedtime routine after playtime for Seb to jump onto the bed waiting for his carer to bring the treats which he is happy to take from his carers hand.

    We believe it is likely that Seb will take some time to settle into the routine of his new furever home - so may well suit experienced cat people, with lots of time and patience as well as lots of love to share. Their reward will be great.

    Seb is an indoor-only kitty.

    Seb has been microchipped, vaccinated and desexed, so is ready for his new home. He is located in Colyton.

    If you are interested in learning more about or providing a home to this gorgeous boy, please contact his carer, Julie.

    Seb has been in foster care since 26 June 2020, for 3 months



    DSH - male - 1 year and 7 months

    This stunning boy, Zac, has grown up alongside other kittens since he came into our care. Well loved, they had their very own kitty pad to keep them safe from resident foster dogs, but perhaps missed out on the hustle and bustle of home life. The last of the three kittens, Zac has now moved to a different foster home to further develop his social skills and come out of his shell.

    Zac is naturally a quiet, sweet and rather shy boy, who is nonetheless up for lots of pats and attention; it is likely he’ll become a real lap cat once he has his own humans with whom to form a permanent bond. He's still kittenish and playful, and has instigated and enjoys nose-touching interaction with the resident giant breed dogs…..and is always keen to explore new places and sounds, especially those out of bounds. He becomes vocal only around feeding time as Zac LOVES his food; this fondness for food has proved very useful to help him learn to trust and to settle, but he is still spooked by new sounds or any events out of routine.

    Early days yet, Zac is still a ‘work in progress’, but knowing his two previous kitty pad-mates have moved happily into fabulous furever families, we are sure Zac will also love and flourish with the right family. We believe it could take 3-4 months for him to settle in, given the chance to understand and integrate with household routine. Assigning his own small area like a bathroom or shower recess, or even a large dog crate, at the outset for example, will allow him to be gently introduced to all the exciting (but spooky) new sights and sounds awaiting him. A house where he is an indoor-only kitty will also ensure he has room to explore without adventuring into the unknown beyond. We believe he is likely to thrive best in a relatively quiet environment.

    Zac is vet checked, microchipped, fully vaccinated, desexed and comes with an extended trial period so he has time to truly settle in with his new family

    Should you be interested in learning more about this unique, lovely, young man, or arranging to meet him at his foster home in Riverstone, please contact his carer, Megan.

    Zac has been in foster care since 25 April 2020, for 5 months



    Domestic Short Hair - female - 8 years and 5 months

    Tinkerbell was surrendered by her owners as they have moved into a small apartment that would not allow pets.

    Tinkerbell is 8 years old and unfortunately we don't know much about her previous history.

    She was surrendered at a vet clinic and has spent 2 weeks there and is now in care with us at DCH.

    She has mild arthritis and is overweight but her blood work is all within normal limits. Her teeth are in good condition.

    She is currently on a diet of Royal Canin Satiety kibble.

    She shows affection and will rub around your feet and seek out attention but can also be a little grumpy at the same time. She has had a lot of change over the last few weeks so we think she will just take a few weeks to settle into a new environment and to learn to trust new people.

    She is a lovely girl and deserves a beautiful new stable home. We think she will do best as an only cat in the home. She does need some space from time and time and affection is best when its on her terms.

    If you think you can offer Tinkerbell a new home then please contact us.

    Located in Potts Point

    Tinkerbell has been in foster care since 01 August 2020, for 2 months



    American Staffy - male - 3 years and 6 months

    Sarge is a loyal gentle sole with a cheeky streak who would really benefit from an owner who has a lot of time to spend with him. Other than when he is eating( he is highly food motivated).

    He LOVES being with people and has very little concept of personal space until he falls asleep.

    Sarge would best suit a family with older children who love outdoors and long walks. He LOVVVVVVVVVVVES to swim and is a real water baby. With some training and a good home with the correct settings for him then he will make a wonderful best mate to someone.

    Needs to be adopted to a home without Cats and without other dogs would be ideal or with a smaller dog than him.
