Mudgee and Saffy

Mudgee and Saffy

Mixed - mixed - 2 years and 6 months

FUREVER HOMES URGENTLY NEEDED

These two well-loved doggies have suddenly found themselves homeless due to their owner’s serious medical condition. They are currently in temporary care, and are hoping to find new furever homes as soon as possible.

Both dogs are great with other dogs and would happily fit in with families with resident dogs. They do not have to be re-homed together.

Mudgee is a very friendly ten year old desexed male labrador. He is lovable and loves people and other dogs. He would suit any family environment, but would be a great friend for an older retired couple.

Saffy is a female Kelpie cross, some two and a half year’s old. She is a friendly energetic girl who would suit a family with kids. She will be de-sexed prior to adoption.

Please contact Suzanne if you believe you could find space in your home and heart for one or both of these friendly dogs.

TC

TC

Domestic Short Hair - male - 10 years and 9 months

TC really has proved to be a Top Cat! He is a really happy boy, with an easygoing personality. During his time in our care, he has lived amiably alongside multiple foster cats and dogs, and has loved being with his carer’s children. In fact, sleeping on their bed, or on the adult’s bed, was his favourite.

Since TC is friendly with just about anyone, it is a puzzle why he is still looking for his furever home. But, he was surrendered to the pound by his owner at the age of 6 years, when we took him into our care. Unfortunately, many older foster cats are often overlooked in favour of little kittens, and TC has been one of them. He had no problem adjusting to his new foster home, and continues to be a really healthy boy, but just hasn’t had many enquiries.

Now 10 years old, TC is of course fully trained and socialised, and needs less attention than little kitties. He is adaptable and sociable, so after a settling in period, he will provide love and snuggles to a new family, whether it be with children and other animals (although he’s not keen on mature boy cats), or a single or couple who, perhaps, need to leave him alone for large parts of the day.

During his time in foster care, TC has been an indoor/outdoor cat; he has roamed happily during the day, but is always sure to get back in the evening to choose who he will snuggle in bed with this time. His outdoor time just needs to be in environment which is safe for cats to ensure he lives to a ripe old age.

Unfortunately for TC, his carer can no longer look after him so he has recently moved into temporary care in our cattery. Once more, he has proved adaptable, now living an indoor only life with no complaints. But he is really missing his snuggly family life and is lonely. We are sure he would like nothing more than to finally find a permanent family home.

TC is desexed, microchipped and his vaccinations are all up to date.

If you feel you would like to share your life with this adorable boy, please contact us to arrange a meet and greet in his current Windsor foster home.

TC has been in foster care since 11 April 2015, for 4.8 years

Jayde

Jayde

DSH - male - 6 years

Jayde is a lovely boy who gets on really well with all cats and kittens and also loves to rub up against our large dogs and is very friendly with them. He would love to join a furever family with other cats and dogs, as well as his own humans, although since he's so friendly, any dog must be cat-friendly as Jayde wouldn't know to run away!

Jayde has a lovely white horseshoe marking across his rump, which may have given him some good luck when he made a full recovery from a paralysis tick bite as a kitten.

Although Jayde loves his foster family, it is certainly high time he found his very own family to share his love and affection. If you would like to visit Jayde at his foster home in Glenhaven, please call his carer, Jeni.

Jayde is microchipped and de-sexed, and vet requirements are all up to date.

Jayde's vet expenses for treatment of his tick bite came to $437. If you can help sponsor him please see details below.

**DCH would like to say Thank you to Natalia, Davy, Carolyn, Lisette and Hui for their generous donations towards Jayde's vet fees. His additional costs have now been fully covered.**

Jayde has been in foster care since 24 October 2015, for 4.3 years

Callie

Callie

Domestic Short Hair - female - 4 years

Fuss-free independent gal.

If Destiny’s Child was writing a song about a cat, Independent Woman would be Callie’s anthem - she likes things on her own terms. Happy lying around doing her own thing, Callie is a fuss-free cat looking for a peaceful home to keep her safe and warm.

With a shy personality, Callie has been overlooked for some time - it’s hard for her to make a first impression when she’s hide-and-seek champion of the house!

That said, Callie adores other cats and would love a home with feline company. She might not be the snuggliest when it comes to humans, but Callie loves to cuddle up to her kitty friends and purr the night away on the couch.

With the nature of an older soul, Callie could be a great companion for an older person who is looking for some company and not necessarily a needy lap cat. Preferring to lie about in a sunny spot watching the world go by, Callie is fuss-free and low maintenance.

Ready to move in ASAP, we’d love to hear from you if Callie could call your place home.

Located in Quakers Hill NSW.

Callie has been in foster care since 19 February 2016, for 3.9 years

Izzie

Izzie

Domestic Short Hair - female - 4 years

Izzie is a beautiful but independent cat. She is mostly white with beautiful brown and orange markings with a tint of black around one of her eyes which makes her look like she is wearing eyeliner.

Izzie loves a good scratch on the back and sides and is especially affectionate of a night time when your in bed. However she is mostly a solitary cat and spends most of the day asleep on her own. She does not like visitors or strange noises and will run and hide. She is in foster care with kids however she would prefer a home without kids or another animals. She typically comes out into the living rooms and interacts more once the kids are in bed and the house is quiet. She is generally a quite cat who sleeps a lot but she loves pats at night to help keep her warm.

She needs to be indoors only where she is the only cat and has an owner who can provide lots of love. She would take several weeks to adjust to a new home so she would need someone with patience and understanding.

Located in Quakers Hill NSW.

Izzie has been in foster care since 19 February 2016, for 3.9 years

Minnie Mum

Minnie Mum

DMH - female - 5 years and 2 months

Hi! I am Minnie Mum. I’m rather beautiful, with my lovely black fur being accessorised by my grey pants.

I was rescued by two humans and now reside with one of them. I’m told I’m easy to live with, but I would like a furever home soon.

I live inside at night but roam the back garden during the day and am happy to hang out to play and chase mice. I also share my foster home with a dog.

I‘m happy to be patted, but – like many cats – I am not keen on being picked up. My foster mum says I have some trust issues, so my new family may need to be patient, and give me some time to settle in.

I am de-sexed, micro chipped, vaccinated and wormed, and, of course, I am litter trained.

Located in Glenorie

Lashes

Lashes

DSH - male - 4 years and 10 months

This is Lashes: his favourite pastime is food or sleeping. He loves to have long conversations with anyone who will listen.

He is not a fussy cat, and will eat anything that’s not bolted down! He loves to pinch the food off the dog who lives here - with whom he is best buddies. He loves kids, too, and particularly enjoys being patted by my grandchildren

Lashes would suit anyone who is willing to be patient and give him a go. He has beds, scratching poles and lots of places to sleep

Lashes is microchipped, de-sexed and vaccinations are up to date.

Clover

Clover

Arab - mare - 24 years and 7 months

Arab Mare 13.1hh, 21yrs

Clover is a sweet older girl who has served her past owners well and is in need of a good retirement home. She's quiet and is able to be brushed, have the farrier out, be lead and handled easily.

Not a lot is known about her past, however she's had a good education at some point as she lunges beautifully, and we've been told she was a clever all-rounder / western pony who excelled at sporting in her younger years.

She had been badly neglected before coming to us, so we have not test ridden her as we've been focusing on getting her back to good health and a better weight.

If you're interested in giving Clover a good home where she can be assured of a secure & happy future, please contact us for more information about her.

Camden

Camden

Domestic Short Hair - female - 4 years and 2 months

Camden has grown into a beautiful young adult with striking markings. Needing less attention now she is no longer a kitten, Camden may well fit in with a working person or couple, as easily as she could love an entire family.

Camden loves treats, and sleeping in her little pot with her baby beanie boo possum. She can be shy, but loves affection when she’s in the zone! She likes plenty of cuddles and loves to have a good belly rub, as well as playing, laying in the sun, and chasing things. Oh, and she has a great appetite.

Camden’s speciality is head butting and purring, and she really enjoys being with her human foster family. But, now she really would like to have her own family, so that in a short time this little girl can love you unconditionally.

Camden is already de-sexed, and is up to date on all her vet requirements.

If you’d like to arrange to meet Camden at her Narellan foster home, please contact her carer, Christine - on 0413 317 481.

Camden has been in foster care since 07 September 2016, for 3.3 years

Josie

Josie

Quarter Horse Mare - female - 8 years

Josie is a lovely young mare, with a quiet nature and an extreme love of food – she needs an experienced owner to keep her roaring appetite in check as she is a very, very good doer!

She has only recently begun her riding career so will need someone to take her further. She has the making of a great all-rounder with the build to make someone a really athletic mount after some further training.

Josie is great to catch, rug, worm, shoe, trim and get her teeth done. She does need some further reassurance that the horse float is not a scary monster that will eat her.

Her current foster parent has only had her for a few weeks but she has shown herself to be a good, solid girl with the potential to be a great riding partner to someone with the experience to further her lessons.

Josie has been in foster care since 17 January 2018, for 2 years
