Maltese x silky terrier - female

Hi my name is Mercedes and Im a 16 year old (yes I know Im older than the Queen) silky terrier X maltese

When I came into DCH care, I was in a bad way. I had a HUGE tumour hanging off my shoulder which weighed 800g and I was very matted. I was wandering the streets carrying this huge burden before I was rescued but after having a haircut and bath as well as having that huge thing taken off my shoulder, Im a new lady

I know some people will be thinking that Im too old to be adopted but let me tell you a thing or two. Im a little feisty old lady who loves going for walks ( I dare you to keep up) and I love my dinner

Ive been to the lovely doctor who has told me that although I have a few lumps and bumps, I do not need any medication to keep me fit and healthy. I walk with a bit of a limp but who doesn't at my age and it doesn't stop me from getting into mischief

I would prefer a home with no other dogs or kids as at my age you don't need any of those whipper snappers getting in your way and cats are definitely a no no

So if you like going for walks and if you have a sunny garden with a fenced yard then I am the dog for you. Don't let my age put you off, call my carer today because I would love to meet you xx

Mercedes was adopted on 18 May 2022 after 4 months in foster care

Domestic Medium Hair - female

Penny found herself at a Western Sydney pound while heavily pregnant. She gave birth to 5 kittens while at the pound. She has been a great mother and had tended diligently to her kittens.

We know this is at least her 2nd litter of kittens as she was handed into the pound with her previous litter.

She is a very friendly cat and has lots of love to give. She eats well and is trying to replenish the nutrients that her kittens are draining from her. She has lost quite a bit of weight while nursing her kittens but should regain that once the kittens are fully weaned.

She has received a vet check-up 10/2 & 22/3 and is doing well. She has been fully vaccinated.

Penny was desexed 22/3 and will be available shortly.

Domestic Medium Hair - female

Tzarina is a beautiful young lady with silky soft fur and a fluffy tail. Rescued from the pound heavily pregnant, she was eager to escape the cold, dangerous streets and find a warm, forever home. Her babies have just all found their forever homes so she is ready to go to hers.

As she’s super friendly and affectionate, Tzarina enjoys plenty of pats and scratches. She loves being around her humans but also doesn’t mind spending time on her own. That's when she’ll catch up on her beauty sleep or groom her glossy, medium-length coat in order to look her best.

Nothing much fazes her — not even big, noisy dogs, so Tzarina will be great in all households, even if they’re busy. She is ok with other cats, she is very confident and un-fazed around them - even when they are a bit testy with her. She’s untested with babies and toddlers but she’ll reward children who pet her velvety fur and offer her the treats she loves with a lovely purr.

Tzarina is microchipped, vaccinated and desexed, and is up to date with her flea and worm treatments. If you’re interested in welcoming this regal girl to the warmth of your home, please contact us.

Tzarina was adopted on 15 May 2022 after 2 weeks in foster care



American Staffordshire x - male

Basil has had a rough start in life. Rescued as a pup, he spent a lengthy period in a shelter before being scheduled to be euthanised at 1-year-old. DCH gave him a future by opting to foster him in the nick of time, and now Basil is looking for a family to give him a chance at a wonderful life.

Despite his tough start, Basil is an energetic and boisterous pup who thinks every day is Christmas and every person he meets is Santa Claus. He is always happy and wanting cuddles and caresses. He loves playing with dog toys and chase games, lives for walks and is learning how to meet people and other dogs with less over-enthusiasm. He is the best guard dog, often alerting you to strangers on your property with his barking, but he also knows when to be quiet and not wake up the neighbours.

Basil is an outside and inside dog. He loves to hang out with people but can also be by himself as long as there are dog toys for him to play with. He is respectful of furniture and shoes but cat toys don't last long when he is near.

Basil is looking for a family of one or more where they can continue his training to regulate his over-enthusiasm but also appreciate his loving and sweet nature. He loves wet and dry food, is toilet-trained, and knows commands such as 'Sit', 'Down', and 'No'. He learns quickly through positive reinforcement (i.e. giving him a treat when he has behaved appropriately or well).

If you feel that you could offer the love and guidance Basil needs and deserves, he would love to meet you.

Basil was adopted on 15 May 2022 after 2 weeks in foster care

Domestic Short Hair - male

*** Rain is available to meet at PetStock Marsden Park ***

Do you want a kitten who seeks the company of humans, and is just happy to be 'present'. Rain is the kitten you are seeking.

Rain is a gorgeous placid little kitten who loves to play, explore and snuggle. He is quite an independent kitten and enjoys playing by himself, but will happily join the gang of foster kittens for a game.

While his foster mum works from home, Rain is close by either asleep on her desk or the cat bed nearby, and when we wants some love he calls out to her in his little voice. At bedtime, Rain is close behind, and quickly finds his comfy spot near the pillow and snuggles in for the night.

Rain is currently being fostered in a home with lots of kittens, cats, 2 dogs and a bunny and after a couple of days he was happy to live alongside them all.

Rain is litter trained, microchipped, and has had his first kitten vaccination and is booked to be desexed Friday 8th April, at which time he will be avaialble to adopt.

If you’re interested in meeting Rain please email his carer and include information about your current household, other pets you own, pet care experience and other relevant details.

Rain is currently located in Bligh Park.

DSH - female

****Bette is available to meet at Petstock Marsden Park****

Bette came into care with her siblings Audrey and Bogart when they were about 2.5 weeks old, and from day 1 Bette was a fighter and the strongest kitten of the litter. While bigger than her sister Audrey, Bette is still on the small size for her age but this has not slowed her down from about 5 weeks when she gave up the bottle, and decided she was big enough to play with the big kittens – although she was half their size.

Bette has funny little facial markings, with an adorable black nose and one white ear and one black ear. Bette has been raised with other foster kittens, as well as the resident cats, dogs and bunny and she happily co-habits with them all.

While Bette has access outside via a cat run in her foster home, /she is looking for forever family that can offer her the protection of growing up inside (or safety outside access).

Bette is ready for meet and greets now, Bette has had all her kitten vaccination and is litter trained and will be up to date with her parasite protection.

As we receive a lot of enquiries for our kittens, 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 18 yrs old and an Australian citizen or Permanent Resident to adopt an animal from DCH.

Bette was adopted on 12 May 2022 after 4 months in foster care
