Rehomed and Stories

The dogs, cats and horses featured below were fostered through DCH Animal Adoptions and have now found permanent loving new homes.

Gromit

Gromit

Domestic Medium Hair - male

Gromit and his brother Gryff were rescued from inside a suburban roof at Minto and came into DCH care at only 3 weeks old. They were initially very shy and scared and have taken weeks to become accustomed to being handled. Now they love the attention!

THESE BROTHERS ARE BONDED ARE MUST BE ADOPTED TOGETHER. They don't stray far from each other and cry out if one gets "lost" in another part of the house.

Gromit is the more adventurous of the two brothers and is usually the first to explore new areas and toys. Although he still bolts when startled, curiosity wins over and he is quick to pop his head back out.

Gryff & Gromit are very shy and ADOPTERS MUST BE PREPARED to win their trust over a few weeks (it won't happen instantly). It has taken me nearly a month but it was well worth the wait to see how affectionate and loving they have become - like my little shadows!

A quieter home with one or two adults (no children), would be perfect for these kittens to thrive. They are both getting used to friendly dogs and are coping well.

The $225 adoption fee includes microchipping, worming/flea-treatment, first vaccination (of 3), and desexing (booked in for 17/09/21). Gromit is also litter-trained and eating both wet and dry Royal Canin Kitten food, with lots of fresh, clean water.

Please use the "Send enquiry email" link below, if you have any questions or if you are interested in adopting Gromit & Gryff. If you are renting, please ensure that you have approval for a cat BEFORE you lodge interest.

You must be over 18 years old to adopt an animal.

Gromit was adopted on 19 September 2021 after 2 months in foster care

Eva Love

We adopted Eva 2.5 years ago. We’re not sure how old she was at the time, probably about 12 months. She was staying at a foster home and the second I picked her up she just relaxed into my arms. We weren’t planning to adopt a pet, but she made the decision for us! She has been such a wonderful addition to our home. She is so incredibly affectionate, so loving, and an absolute sweetheart. She follows us from room to room like a puppy and watches TV with us on the couch at night. We can’t believe we waited so long to get a pet and we can’t imagine our lives without her.
