Jack and Jake

Jack and Jake

DSH - male - 2 years and 3 months

Twins Jack and Jake are very easy-going, relaxed cats that would easily fit into most homes.

Both love to play, and they are great with big and small dogs, their cat-mates and the rabbit they currently live with in foster care. In fact they are currently inducting two new foster kittens into the correct way to become cat purrfection. They do enjoy their supervised outdoor time as well as chilling with their humans.

Jack and Jake have been with their foster carer since they were bottle fed after being abandoned around 2 weeks old. As a result, they are very fond of each other, and would definitely prefer a furever home together.

As kittens, both had issues with their eyes, mainly due to ingrowing lashes. They do both need a family who can commit to cleaning their eyes and adding moisturising eyedrops twice a day to keep them comfortable. They are both totally relaxed and used to this routine.

It is still possible that Jack may need further vetinerary treatment, but we are hoping Jake may be fine given the daily attention. Clearly this extra care does require a special and loving person. If you think this may be you, please contact Jake and Jack’s carer, Jasmin - on 0424 738 236 - to arrange a meet and greet at their foster home.

They have already been de-sexed, microchipped, and their vaccinations are up to date. The adoption price for these two lovely boys has been reduced, due to their medical issues, to only $50 for the pair.

***many thanks go to David and Michael who have helped contribute to Jacks additional vet fees, we have still spent an additional $900 on vet fees and sponsorship help would be very appreciated.***

Jack and Jake has been in foster care since 15 January 2017, for 2.2 years



Mastiff X - female - 3 years and 2 months

Cassi is not only a beautiful looking girl but very well mannered and gentle in nature. She has a loving playful side to her that just makes her adorable to whoever she meets. Very well socialised (in care with two other dog see photo) and loves the company of all, rides well in the car, walks nicely on a lead and is great with children.

Cassi is a medium/large sized dog. Exercising her with walks and leash free runs is part of her weekly routine. She is very obedient for the limited training she has had and will undoubtedly improve with your help and loving care.

Cassi has been sleeping inside at night with no issues (toilet trained) once snuggled up in her spot she doesn't move, that could also be on you if invited .

We are looking for an active, fun filled family or person’s environment for Cassi where she is accepted and loved for sweet personality and loving nature. There is one thing we must tell you about Cassi, she can jump fences with the ease of an Olympian. So your fencing will have to be colour bond at minimum as when you go out she will try to find a way to join you. Best to still have the high fencing. Cassi loves the company of other dogs but doesn't like sharing her food during feeding time, so if you have another dog best to feed them separately.

Cassi was reluctantly returned to DCH due to her new owner needing to move overseas. During the 4 months with her new owner Cassi was put through a vigorous training program helping her to improve in her obedience.

Cassi is vaccinated, de sexed and micro chipped and ready to go to a loving home. Adoption based on special conditions.

Cassi has been in foster care since 09 September 2017, for 1.5 years



DSH - female - 1 year and 5 months

Pixie was fostered together with her teenage mum and 3 siblings, all of whom have found homes.

Pixie has a unique personality; she enjoys exploring, as well as standing at your feet meowing at you and sitting next to you on the lounge. She’s used to being handled by young children, although she does take a little time to adjust initially.

She can be a little skittish if there is too much loud noise and sudden movement so older/no children would be best.

When happy, Pixie can get ecstatic - not only purring loudly, but sticking her rear in the air, and rolling over to expose her belly to you …. And is known to drool with bliss!

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

She’s currently homed with two other cats.

If you’d like to arrange to meet Pixie at her Campbelltown foster home, please contact her carer, Imaan.

Pixie has been in foster care since 13 November 2017, for 1.3 years



Quarter Horse Mare - female - 7 years and 2 months

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 1.2 years



dsh - female - 1 year

Penny's personality is the most gentle I've ever come across in a kitty. Even though she has been with us for only a short time, she purrs very fast and very loudly when picked up. She is generally shy with new people though, so her furever family may have to give her a couple of weeks to settle, to allow her to gain the confidence that she's safe and loved. Penny does love playing with toys, and happily eats whatever cat food is on offer.

Although she doesn’t realise it herself, Penny walks with a very unusual gait. (See Video). After a thorough vet check-up, including x-rays, the vet has ruled out any problems with her bones and joints. Instead the vet thinks it may be neurological, and in any event, thankfully, it causes no pain and Penny is perfectly happy the way she is!

Penny does have strength in those back legs, as she loves to stand up on them so she can see what might be of interest up the bench - taking her full body weight. Fortunately, she hasn’t learnt yet to jump up on the furniture, but ,when she decides to chase her feline foster friends, Penny just launches herself straight at them from her sleeping position.

Penny has enjoyed being an indoor kitty to date, and because she doesn’t realise her legs won’t run fast enough to get away from dangerous situations, her new furever home must also be indoors. She does love her cat buddies, and is also living harmoniously with her carer’s large cat friendly dogs, so a family (be it large, a couple or a single person) with existing potential playmates may well find her a wonderful companion. Because Penny is very gentle, however, any animal friends should not play rough.

Penny is microchipped, and her vaccinations are up to date. Her adoption fee includes de-sexing.

If you would like to meet this special kitty at her foster home in Glenhaven , please call her carer Jeni to arrange a time.

Penny has been in foster care since 20 July 2018, for 8 months



Domestic Short Hair - female - 2 years and 9 months

Penny is a Dilute grey Tortishell.

She was abandoned and left in a cage on a business property in a rural area with her babies. She would have died if the workers on the property did not find her. She has been in care since her babies were tiny and she is now ready to find a new home.

She comes desexed, vaccinated, wormed.

Located near Windsor

Penny has been in foster care since 29 August 2018, for 6 months



Domestic Medium Hair - female - 1 year and 11 months

Jill came into foster care in Sept 2018 as a young, pregnant cat from the pound. She raised some beautiful kittens (Cloud, Tabitha & Whiskey) who are now available for adoption, and it's time this young lady found her own loving home as well!

She has a beautiful, silky, soft coat (like her daughter, Cloud) which will require regular grooming to keep it free from matting and knots. While Jill has been in foster care around other cats and dogs, she would likely prefer a quieter home with a devoted human or two, who will be patient and gentle with her while she settles in and gets used to you.

Jill comes with a kitten-care package, fully vaccinated, desexed, microchipped and up to date with flea and worming treatment. As with all animals adopted from DCH Animal Adoptions, she comes with a 2 week trial to give her time to adapt to her new home, which may be extended by arrangement to ensure the best home is found for her.

As of 17/2/19, Jill has just arrived at her new foster carer's home in Randwick and is being exposed to new noises, smells, and other animals as part of her desensitisation - things that she missed out on in her mysterious earlier life. Once settled she would absolutely love some cuddles from her potential new family. To arrange a visit, please contact us.

Jill has been in foster care since 12 September 2018, for 6 months



Domestic Short Hair - Medium H - female - 2 years and 9 months

Amelia came from a Sydney pound as a scared girl. She arrived shortly after having kittens but her kittens were not brought in with her.

She is a lovely girl who will purr and want pats but only in small amounts. She can be a little too playful for her own good and can get a little rough with her feline and canine foster family.

She is not good around dogs or other animals so is best in a quite home without other animals where she can rule the house. She would love access to an outside cat enclosure.

She has a lovely possum type fluffy tail.

Amelia had cat flu when she arrived in our care, but it has has been fully treated with medication.
She has been desexed, and has received 2 vaccinations. She is microchipped and wormed

Amelia has been in foster care since 12 September 2018, for 6 months



Domestic ShortHair - female - 1 year

Ella came to us from a Sydney pound as a scared girl. She is currently in foster care and gaining confidence. She loves a few pats in short bursts but she will swipe you away once she has had enough. She will need a little time and attention on your social behaviours but should make for a great companion.

She has been desexed, and received 2 vaccinations.
She is microchipped, wormed and flea treated,

Located at Acacia Gardens

Ella has been in foster care since 12 September 2018, for 6 months



Mixed breed - mare - 12 years and 11 months

Tiny is a red roan, approx 13.3 hh.
She has been through a lot: starvation, abuse and neglect. Happily, she has blossomed in DCH's care, and will continue to gain trust in people in the right home.

Tiny has loads of personality! She is very smart and will learn quickly from a patient, kind and understanding handler. She can be a bit feisty in the paddock and is dominant with other horses and around food.

Tiny is very inquisitive, and is now good to catch, groom and worm. Hoof trimming is still a bit difficult. Tiny suffers from QLD itch and would benefit from living in an itch free area (not coastal).

Tiny has been in care for over a year. She requires an experienced home to further her education.




Tiny has been in foster care since 07 October 2018, for 5 months
