Staffy x - male - 1 year and 1 month


Lincoln is a sweet boy who has come very far since he has been in foster care.

He was found as a stray and was in very poor condition. Since being in care he has really grown in personality. He is a fantastic dog to have her own home he is house trained and crate trained, loves to play with squeaky toys and loves to play with dogs
He absolutely adores people and he’s extremely gentle around children.
He is currently doing rehab hydrotherapy one session a week, and it has helped strengthen his muscles so that he can increase his exercise.
If you can offer Lincoln the special home he needs please contact us to meet him..

Sponsorship Required
Due to his poor start to life and being so underweight Lincoln has had to have more vet attention than most to rule out any underlying conditions. He also required some baby teeth to be extracted. His vet fees have come to $1,007 and we are seeking sponsorship to cover some of these additional expenses.

Lincoln has been in foster care since 09 March 2024, for 4 months



Domestic Short Hair - female - 2 years and 5 months

Poppy was found by a good Samaritan and handed into a vet clinic before finding her way into care with DCH.

She is a gentle, sweet girl and gets along well with the other resident kitties.

She loves a belly rub and does a cute forward roll at her carer's feet when she wants attention.

She's not too keen on being picked up but is happy to settle down on her carer's lap for a cuddle and to snuggle up to her carer at bedtime.

She also enjoys watching fish videos on YouTube.

She is still hesitant when meeting people for the first time but that doesn't tend to last very long and just means that a little patience will be needed when she moves to her new home.

Poppy has had to deal with a number of allergy issues but these have now settled down although her allergies do mean that she has to be fed particular foods.

Poppy would suit a quieter home where she can gets lots of attention when she needs it.

Poppy is vet checked, microchipped, vaccinated and desexed and is looking for an indoors only home to keep her safe and secure.

Poppy has suffered from gum disease and wasn't eating due to mouth pain. She has had to have surgery to remove her teeth and fix the issue. Her vet fees have come to over $3,000. If you can assist by sponsoring some of these additional costs please click on the links below

Shih Tzu x maltese x - female

This beautiful little girl was a naughty puppy and ate something she shouldn't have. A day after coming into care with her siblings it became apparent something wasn't right with her and a vet check and xrays revealed a foreign, suspected wooden, object stuck in her intestines.

She is going in for surgery to remove the object and hopefully there is no major internal damage. Lilly will hopefully be back with her foster carers after a few days at the vets.

Lilly's vet fees will be between $1,500-2,000. If you can assist with sponsoring any of her surgery fees that would be very appreciated.

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.



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!



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



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
