Georgina

domestic - female - 6 months and 2 weeks

Georgina is an active and happy girl. She is super clever and figured out how to use cat door second day when she was brought in our care and she was only 10 weeks old. Georgina likes to sit on a lap and have a cuddle.

Megan

Megan

Dmh - female - 1 year and 2 months

Megan is a wonderfully affectionate cat, who will seek you out for 'feeding time' and coil herself around you, purring and mewing until her meal is presented to her.
Even when food is not involved, she loves to 'elegantly' flop in front of you (no matter where you are), to expose her belly and have it rubbed.
Not only has she been a fantastic mum to her two little boys, she lives happily with a 12 month old Labradane and would adapt to a new dog quite quickly.
Megan is happy to be picked up, have her nails trimmed and is well behaved around small children, making her wonderful addition to any family looking to adopt.

Megan will be available on the 18 April, after desexing.

Megan has been in foster care since 07 February 2021, for 2 months

Olive

Olive

Chihuahua - female - 9 years and 4 months

Olive is a beautiful little chihuahua that we estimate to be between 10-12 years old. Olive didn’t have the best start to her foster life, as she was riddled with lumps and bumps all over but she’s feeling a lot better (and a lot lighter) now they've been removed.

Despite Olive's rough start with us, she still proved she has a lot of love to give and would make a great companion for the right person.

Whilst Olive has had many medical issues resolved she still has an ongoing treatment plan involving twice daily eye cleans and drops and fortnightly medicated baths as well as a joint supplement to help with her back legs.

While Olive has been in foster care, some behavioural difficulties have been identified. She has a very high level of resource guarding, is reactive on leash, is very wary around new people and is especially sensitive to touch around her rear end.

Due to Olive's behavioural requirements, she is not suited to a home with children under 10 years old and is best suited in a home as the primary pet with no other cats or dogs.

Ideally we would like to see Olive in a home with previous Chihuahua experience that would be able to devote all the attention to her and is slow paced so she can enjoy her retirement.

Olive is toilet trained, very food motivated and enjoys short strolls where she can roll in the grass and get some sun.

If this feisty gal sounds like the perfect companion for you we would love to hear from you!

Olive has been in foster care since 06 December 2020, for 4 months

Daphne

Daphne

Mini Fox Terrier - female - 15 years and 3 months

Hi I'm Daphne. You could consider me a pensioner. My approximate age is 15 as assessed by the Pound who described me as a sweet girl. My foster carer totally agrees. I have difficulty seeing and hearing, however I'm getting by, discovering all the nooks and crannies of my foster house and back yard. I get on with the resident and visiting dogs and just potter around all day. I do have a bit of stiffness in the hips however, I walk well on the lead and sleep soundly throughout the night. I eat real food and I have many of my own teeth. I would prefer a level house and garden as I cannot see the steps properly, however once I get used to one or two I may be okay. I am visiting my handsome Vet this Wednesday who will give me an update on my current health. My foster father, also a pensioner and mother are falling in love with me however, I would love to share my personality with someone who will understand my issues so that my foster parents can rescue another furbaby in need. Some incontinence issues which are reducing daily. Can be treated with medication if necessary.

Daphne has been in foster care since 26 March 2021, for 3 weeks

Mila

Mila

Dsh - female - 1 year and 4 months

Surrendered to DCH by owners who could no longer look after her, Mila was initially a little shy but an affectionate girl when she gets to know you. She is happy to spend her days by herself asleep but will settle on her carer's knee for a chin rub after dinner and will stay close at night for a cuddle. She adores being brushed and will chase after the brush if it's taken away. She's also very vocal when it comes to meal times and will let you know when she's hungry.

Mila’s comfort in her new foster home has been somewhat constrained by a young kitten in our care: it seems the kitten's constant need to run about and play is a bit too much for Mila sometimes when all she wants to do is laze around. This probably means her new home may best be one either without other young kitties or with kitties who are not as energetic as her current companion.

Before she came into our care, Mila was described as overall a beautiful cat. Friendly, so cuddly, loves pats and cuddles, would just come and lay next to you whenever she sees you're around, loves toys and running after things. She's very smart and knows her food schedule really well.

Mila is microchipped, desexed and has had the first of her vaccinations. She is an indoor only cat.

Please email us if you'd like to learn more about this black beauty, or arrange a meet and greet at her temporary home in Potts Point.

Mila has been in foster care since 25 January 2021, for 2 months

Suri

Suri

Domestic Short Hair - female - 1 year

Suri is a such a little cat who gave birth to her first litter of kittens when she was just a kitten herself. She has since been in care with an active foster family, comprising mum and dad, two kids, cats (both resident and foster), canines and bunnies – and this busy environment really hasn’t suited her rather quiet temperament. With lots of one on one time with her carer now her kittens have moved on, she is learning to relax and enjoy affection, and to be held…..

But, Suri is longing for her own furever home – quiet, indoor, maybe the only pet. She would sooo love that environment, and we are sure she would gain confidence and thrive in it.

Are you that quiet, patient person or family? Please contact her carer to arrange a meet and greet at her temporary home in Ermington.

Suri is microchipped, vaccinated and desexed, and is up to date with her flea and worm treatments, so she is ready to go.

Suri has been in foster care since 30 November 2020, for 4 months

Franny

Franny

DSH - female - 5 months

Franny came into DCH care a couple of weeks before Christmas with her 4 siblings, Crispen, Maggie, Peaches and Dotty, when they were only 12 days old.

Franny’s beautiful sweet nature has slowly developed over the past few weeks and she enjoys a snuggle early morning before the day starts.

Franny has been raised with other kittens, cats, dogs and bunnies and is quite comfortable living among them all.

Franny is a little smaller than her siblings so she has take a little longer to get ready for her new home but that time has now arrived and Franny will be available to adopt from Saturday (13th Feb), and is ready to meet her forever family.

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.

Remi

Remi

DSH - male - 3 months and 3 weeks

Remi and his brothers, Rusti and Rudi, are Christmas Eve babies, who came into DCH care at 8 weeks old, and while they had interacted with humans their socialisation was limited and they very scared and hissy their first week in care. After their first week, the boys have really come out of their shells and will seek human attention especially for pats and food, and before you even pat them their little engines are revving and their purrs get quite loud. The ginger-nut boys are very active kittens, and their morning and evening zoomies can get quite energetic.

While the ginger-nut boys have come along way with their socialisation, they are looking for a new family that will understand they may hide the first few days and will need time to settle at their own pace into their new homes and families. Being lovers of food they are very food motivated which goes a long way to gaining their trust. As the boys have not been raised with children, families with children will need to take into consideration that this home environment may take the boys a little longer to become at ease and comfortable.

If you are after company but want a kitten happy to do his own and doesn’t demand attention, thing Remi is the kitten for you. Rusti is a handsome little ginger and is the more independent kitten of the group often happy with his own company and watching the going-ons around the house, and while Remi is learning he has a voice, he doesn’t like being picked up and cuddled, but he is very affectionate and sleeps on his foster carers bed of an evening. Remi will take the longer of the gingernut boys to be comfortable with his new forever home but once he gets there he is lovely, unassuming kitten.

Since coming into care Remi has been raised with other kittens, cats, dogs and bunnies and while he was nervous around the dogs the first couple of weeks, he is a lot more comfortable now and will do the ninja jump at them if they enter a room and he is in a playful mood.

Remi is ready for his forever home now and he has been desexed, microchipped and he is up to date with his vaccinations and parasite protection.

As we currently 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 18yrs old and an Australian citizen or Permanent Resident to adopt an animal from DCH.
