Goldie

Goldie

Cattle Dog - female - 6 years and 1 month

This beautiful 6 year old girl came into the vets with pyometra and her owners decided against treatment and opted for euthanasia. DCH was contacted by the vets and asked if we could help this gorgeous girl.
After her life saving surgery this girl will be coming into DCH care.

We are expecting costs to be around $800 and we have had some amazing donations towards this beautiful girls surgery but we are still needing around $250.

Lou Lou AKA Lulu

Lou Lou AKA Lulu

Ragdoll - female - 10 years and 7 months

Lulu AKA Lou Lou has been surrendered into DCH care to help rehome her into a loving home with lots of attention.

She is a beautiful cat who needs love, attention, and a suitable home.
She is used to being an indoors/outdoors cat in her past however she would be safest kept indoors.

She has had a previous injury which involved a skull fracture where she became blind in 1 eye. She requires ongoing lubricating eye drops twice a day in both eyes.

She is Microchipped and has previously been desexed. Her microchip has been updated to confirm she is desexed but we don't have a desexing certificate for her. She will be flea treated and wormed and will have received a vaccination valid to Sept 2023.

Scully

Scully

Domestic Short Hair - male

(Warning Contains graphic photos)

Scully was found at the end of a driveway just standing there with significant injuries to his head and under her arms. His skull had been exposed from the injury and it was very confronting and dramatic. It was initially touch and go for Scully however he is a fighter and has survived with his skull exposed as his skin slowly heals back.

Scully has needed ongoing medical care for the treatment of his head including multiple vet treatments, creams, cleanings.

We are asking for any help to sponsor the costs for Scully's ongoing medical needs. Its expected his head won't be fully recovered to at least September which will be 5 months in care receiving ongoing treatments.

Muffin

Muffin

Domestic Long Hair - male - 9 months

Sponsorship required: Muffin has a Grade 4/5 heart murmur and needs an ultrasound to determine what is causing it which will cost $1000.

Muffin has been diagnosed with a heart murmur which means he will require quarterly check ups at the vet and may have to be on regular medication when he is older. He is a sweet, beautuful boy who is deserving of his own special family. Muffin plays and runs just like any other kitten. He loves to be cuddled and kissed and has the most gorgeous long blue/grey coat. He would really thrive in a family of his own.

Muffin has received his 1st and 2nd kitten vaccinations. He is microchipped and up to date with his flea and worm treatment. Muffin is eating Royal Canin Mother and Babycat dry food and uses crystal cat litter.

Please ring or text his carer if you are interested in adopting Muffin, and are able to provide for any special needs he may require in the future.

Muffin has been in foster care since 11 February 2022, for 7 months

Reginald (Regi)

Reginald (Regi)

Domestic - male

Little Reginald has come into care after being handed in by a good Samaritan to an emergency vet over the holiday period. He has spent 2 days at an emergency vet and has been handed over into foster care for some rest and recovery and on-going medical treatments.

Reginald has a spinal injury from an unknown cause and struggles to wee and poop on his own. He requires assistance to poop and wee from his carers and is on 3 sets of medications prescribed by the vets 4/1/22.

The hope is that with ongoing medication and TLC that the bruising and swelling will reduce and that he hopefully regains bladder and bowel movements as well as the use of tail however the tail may need to be amputated as its already lost a lot of tone and currently has no feeling in it.

Betty

Betty

British Bulldog - female

*Thanks so much to the dozens of donors who generously gave to help cover Betty's vet fees. Her costs have now been fully covered*

All the Animals that come to DCH are in need of care but some much more than others. This gorgeous girl is Betty and she came into our care from the local council shelter.

We are unsure how Betty came to have these wounds but the vets have suggested a dog attack. Betty has required surgery, blood tests, 2 X Rays and a one night stay with fluids.

Betty's vet treatment has come to $1200 so far and we are seeking donations from our supporters to help us with this cost.

If you would like to donate please see the links below.

Our primary focus is to get Betty the medical treatment she needs and to ensure she is returned to full health.

Lucky Betty found a caring home!

Melanie

Melanie

Maltese - female

Hi, I'm Melanie. Do you like my photo? I've just been washed. Everyone describes me as a delightful humorous friendly type of gal. I was found out partying and couldn't find my way home so I was grounded at the local Pound for 2 weeks until my current Rescue Group rescued me. I did have a microchip but the details were out of date.

However, I am looking forward to the next adventure in my life. I guess I should settle down now that I'm middle-aged, however, I'm still agile, walk well on the lead, toilet-trained, like to play fetch, don't mind a bath and flirt with resident dogs. I love meeting new people and dogs.

My Vet visit revealed that my teeth are only okay but will need addressing. I do have some lumps and bumps which come with
my past life as a breeding mum. Surgery is complete, now waiting for several results to come back.

I am best suited to a family with lots of visitors people who would like to throw my toys and balls and let me retrieve them for you. I am a little picky with food, however my favourite at he moment is roast chicken with steamed vegetables, raw steak and raw chicken necks. I do have some bones protruding so I will have to stay in care until my curves have better coverage.

Due to medical issues, Melanie is no longer available for adoption. Thank you all for your interest.

Melanie was adopted on 21 May 2021 after 3 weeks in foster care

Callie

Callie

Domestic Short Hair - female

Callie required extensive dental work and we're seeking sponsorship to help cover these extra costs. Her dental work has come to $536

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 was adopted on 06 February 2021 after 4.9 years in foster care

Mocha

Mocha

Ragdoll - female

GREAT NEWS!: Mocha has changed dramatically since her dental treatment - she must have been suffering severe pain.

She's now decided to try to snuggle in the childrens' beds, and has become really calm and loving. Just as you'd expect of a ragdoll kitty!
She's absolutely ready to be spoilt in a family who'll love and cherish her. ....

This beautiful ragdoll, Mocha, was rescued from the Pound and taken into DCH care last month. Nothing was known about her background, but she was quite underweight and rather timid. Her carer saw that her mouth was clearly bothering her, so took Mocha to the vet who immediately undertook extensive dental work to make her comfortable and able to eat properly. No wonder she was so skinny, poor girl.

Anyway, Mocha is happily eating now, and enjoying the large and nutritious helpings she is being offered!

She is gradually coming out of her shell, but her current environment is quite active with young children and other cats, as well as dogs and bunnies, so she tends to maintain a good distance. On the other hand, when alone with her carer, Mocha really enjoys being petted and loved, and is a gentle soul. Because of this, we believe she will thrive in a quiet home, where she can happily be the centre of attention. To keep her safe, Mocha must be an indoor-only kitty.

Mocha is vet checked, microchipped and desexed; her vaccinations are up to date.

If you believe you can provide the furever home that Mocha so deserves, please email her carer. Mocha is currently located in Ermington.

MOCHA'S DENTAL BILL IS ESTIMATED TO BE $700 A big Thankyou to M.Holt for sponsoring Mocha's dental fees. These are now fully paidDCH would appreciate any amount you may be able to help us pay to this very large veterinary bill.
Our ability to raise essential funds to cover vet expenses has been substantially reduced this year due to the cancellation of fundraising events - which are a critical source of our income.

Mocha was adopted on 08 January 2021 after 2 months in foster care
