Pepper

Pepper

DSH - male

Pepper came into foster care from a western Sydney Animal Shelter around 2.5 weeks of age. He has been hand raised and bottle fed and has had LOTS of human attention and handling over the last few months.

Pepper is very friendly and will rub into the side of your legs for pats and can be very affectionate. He has a great big purr and loves a cuddle and a pat. He can be a little scared of new things and new noises so will take a couple of weeks to settle into a new home.

He is eating a diet of Royal Canin Second stage kitten dry food as well as Royal Canin Kitten Instinctive gravy wet food.

He has have been desexed, microchipped, wormed and flea treated. He is fully vaccinated and due again in 2022.

Maurice

Maurice

Dsh - male

Maurice is a gorgeous outgoing little man. He loves people and just wants to play and get lots of affection. He has an unusual coat where he is black but you can see his tabby pattern through his fur. This colour is called a black smoke. He is very cuddly and loves his cat scratcher and ball toy. He would make a perfect pair with his brother Marcel. Marcel has the same colouring at Maurice, they are so cute together and just want cuddles all the time. They are gorgeous boys together.

Marcel

Marcel

DSH - male

Marcel is a very little dude with lots of spunk. He loves pats and is very affectionate. He desperately wants a family and always climbs up on his enclosure to get close as possible to you. He has a very cute tiny meow and a very confident boy. Marcel has a slightly bigger brother called Maurice. Both Marcel and Maurice have the same black fur with tabby markings you can see through it. It is an unusual colour called a black smoke. The boys would be great pair to adopt together.

Zac

Zac

DSH - male

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 was adopted on 14 March 2021 after 10 months in foster care

Zeppelin

Zeppelin

Domestic Medium Hair - male

Zeppelin was surrendered to Hawkesbury Animal Shelter with his sister, Ziggy, before both came into DCH foster care. These kittens have been bottle-fed and are very sociable with people.

Zeppelin is a confident, affectionate and very playful kitten who has lots of energy and curiosity! This little guy is a great little companion who comes running when you click your fingers and loves to be picked up so much, he jumps up on legs and begs! Zeppelin has one of the most lovable personalities that I have come across in fostering.

As he is so people-focused, Zepp would benefit from a home where he gets loads of attention, and he would also be fine with another cat for company. Balls with bells and toy mice are his favourites at the moment, and he proudly carries them through the house!

The $225 adoption fee includes microchipping, worming, first vaccination and desexing. Zeppelin is also litter-trained and socialised with other kittens and cat-friendly dogs.

Please use the "Send enquiry email" link below, if you have any questions or if you are interested in adopting.

As we currently receive lots of enquiries for each kitten, please include relevant details about yourself and your home/other pets to be considered. If you are renting, please ensure that you have approval for a cat BEFORE you lodge interest.

You must be over 18yrs old and an Australian citizen or Permanent Resident to adopt an animal from DCH.

Zeppelin was adopted on 12 March 2021 after 4 months in foster care

Milo and Ollie

Milo and Ollie

Rag Doll (pure bred) - male

These two beautiful blue bicoloured brothers have lived happily together with their family – which includes two older children – since they were kittens. Unfortunately, they are now in need of another family who will love and care for them just as we have. They must be rehomed together.

Both Milo and Ollie are very affectionate and loving once they are comfortable and trusting with you. Definitely a part of the family, they love to share the bed with you and roam around freely – and will object if locked up in a room away from you. That said, they are of course indoor-only cats, as they would not survive outside.

They will be more suited to a quiet home with no young children, or other pets. They will continue to thrive given the love and attention rag dolls need and deserve; a new owner who has experience with this special breed would be wonderful.

The brothers are healthy, and are microchipped, desexed and up to date with their vaccinations. If you wish to learn more about Milo and Ollie, please email their owner providing a little detail about your family and any previous experience with cats.

Hank

Hank

Jack Russell Terrier Cross - male

7/3 - Hank has been adopted and is commencing a two week trial adoption period.

Hank was born in an animal shelter facility and came into foster care with DCH on the day he was born. He was born a little earlier than expected and was quite small to begin with but has grown to be a wonderful, affectionate and playful puppy.

Hank's mother is microchipped as a Jack Russell X Pomeranian and his dad is unknown so we have listed Hank as a Jack Russell Terrier cross.

He has been raised in care as an indoors and outdoors dog but always sleeps inside. He is used to using a synthetic grass pee mat for a toilet when indoors.

Hank has received his 1st and 2nd vaccinations and will required 1 more vaccination post adoption to be fully vaccinated.

Hank has been desexed, wormed, microchipped and flea treated.

Hank has a very sweet nature and goes not mind being picked up or cuddled and lots a good pat. Like any puppy he can be a ball full of energy and will chew on anything and everything that he can.

Once Hank has received his last vaccination, we would recommend that he attends puppy school.

Located in Acacia Gardens

Hank was adopted on 08 March 2021 after 3 months in foster care

Sophie

Sophie

dmh - female

Sophie is such a beautiful, affectionate and loving girl. She is very soft with a gorgeous medium length coat. She absolutely loves to be around people and have a play or just sit and relax. She goes crazy with her plastic ball toy and like to chase things and flick them up in the air. Sophie is very chatty and makes cute trill noises all the time, and will stretch up onto your knee for pats. She is just a delight and is ready for her new home. Sophie would prefer to be the only cat in her new home, if there are other cats she will take time to adjust. She is out going and confident and is the perfect companion and wonderful company.

Sophie was adopted on 28 February 2021 after 1 month in foster care
