Sage

Sage

Domestic Short Hair - female - 4 months and 2 weeks

Sage was found with an injured leg (her back left leg) and upon examination, the leg was said that it needed to be amputated. It had been fractured already and then had re-fractured. The decision to amputate the leg was the right choice. She gets around better and better each day, and without any major issues. She’s not required to take any other medicines than any other kitten would.

She loves to sleep on your lap and begins to purr the second she gets a pat. She use to be very cautious of her environment and the people in it but now will run up to you the second she’s about to be feed. She lives in the same house as two dogs but is kept in a separate room.

The area around her back left leg was shaved due to the amputation but is quickly growing back.

DCH is grateful to Kellyville Ridge Veterinary Hospital for doing the surgery at a discounted rate to give Sage a chance at a good life.
We are very thankful to the following people who have all helped and donated $582 for Sage's surgery. She cannot say Thank you herself but we say a big Thank you on her behalf.
Nadine, Leesa, Nick, Lauren, Debbie, Laura, Nabila, Gabby, Em, Jan, Steven, Anne-Marie and Georgia

Sage has been in foster care since 22 July 2019, for 2 months

Betty

Betty

British Bulldog - female

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.

Oscar, Millie, Toby

Oscar, Millie, Toby

Staffy x Kelpie - female

These 4 puppies were abandoned with their litter mates early and although lucky enough to come into rescue from the pound they have sadly come down with Parvo and are currently fighting for life at the vets. Luckily little Millie and Tina, the sisters, don't seem as badly affected as their brothers who at this stage are on a drip at the vets and we just have our fingers crossed they are strong enough to make it through.

We are looking at vet bills in excess of $5,000 for these pups, If you can assist by sponsoring these puppies please see how below.

Update 30/4/18: Sadly Toby and Milly didn't make it, thankfully Oscar is recovering well and is home from hospital. He will be ready for adoption in a few weeks when he has fully recovered.

Storm

Storm

British Bulldog - female

This young girl has come into care needed some extensive vet work. She has luxating patella's and eye issues which will both need corrective surgery. This is estimated to cost $2,000 and we are seeking donations to help sponsor her surgery.

She will obviously not be ready for adoption until after these have been done and she has fully recovered but luckily for her we do have a list of eager families waiting to meet her afterwards, so at this stage no adoption enquiries please.

Storm was adopted on 26 April 2018 after 1 month in foster care

Thor

Thor

Kelpie x - male

Thor hasn't had the best start to life, he was hit by a car and taken to he vets where he was found to have extensive nerve damage to the front leg. All the nerves were dead and he ended up with a leg that was unusable and was causing him grief.

Sadly Thor has had his leg amputated and is now on the hunt for a loving forever home that can see past his looks and love him for the fantastic personality that he has.

Thor gets along with dogs well and enjoys playing just like all puppies. He has a kind and happy personality and would suit most homes.

If you can offer Thor a loving Forever Home please email us a bit about yourself and your home.

*Update: Thor has had his surgery and it's been successful. Costs are $886, if you can help sponsor these additional fees for Thors vet expenses please see below on how you can donate*

Thor was adopted on 09 February 2017 after 2 weeks in foster care
