Domestic Short Hair - female - 4 months and 2 weeks

This kitten was born to Rivers who was living in a factory environment in Riverstone being cared for by the workers. After being born they were living outside in a cardboard box on a trailer and were surrendered into foster care to provide them a safer environment.

Rivers has raised her kittens in doors and they are now ready to find a new home. They are used to human contact and will make for great companions. They are wanting to live in a lovely home environment enjoying the comforts of life.

If you would like to meet this kitten or its siblings, please contact us.

Located in Acacia Gardens close to Parklea Markets

**Sponsorship Needed - January 2019. Minnie has injured her right back leg. She had x-rays which confirmed it was not broken and has needed 2 courses of medication to assist her. Her treatment has cost $249 to date and is expected to be over $300. Any help with her vet bills will be appreciated.**

Minnie has been in foster care since 19 October 2018, for 4 months

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 2.1 years

Abby (Einstein)

Abby (Einstein)

DSH - female - 4 months and 4 weeks

Very smart outgoing little girl, hence her nickname. She is certainly the most adventurous of the 4 siblings we rescued, leading her little brothers around.

Abby is very happy with her humans and her furry foster friends. She will be a delightful addition to her new family.

Abby is microchipped, vaccinated and up to date with all treatments. Her adoption fee includes de-sexing.

Please contact us to arrange to visit Abby at her foster home in Hoxton Park.

Update: Poor Abby has developed a large cyst that anti-biotics failed to clear up and she's had to have surgery to clean it out. These additional vet fees have come to $357. Thankfully she will make a full recovery with no ongoing issues expected.

Abby (Einstein) has been in foster care since 03 November 2018, for 3 months

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.



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



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
