Polly Pocket

Polly Pocket

Polly was one of my foster cats, I’ve had many, many foster cats over the last 12 years from being a carer for DCH, but this little cat won our hearts. The only one I’ve ever kept. It’s often the case that the kittens get adopted but the mumma cat is kinda rejected for being too old.

Not Polly!

She’s a spritely little thing, with a meow that matches her size..small! She’s a beautiful addition to the household and I thank the former carers for looking after her and her kittens before she came to me. We love her to bits.

Tricky now answers to Bailey

We lost our cocker in May to lymphoma.
Was not going to get another dog to hard to say goodbye. But our house was not a home without one so we decided to get a rescue.. Best thing. Tricky/ Bailey has settled in well it as if he knows he is home !!!
We love him to bits, hope all of your rescue dogs find good homes
Wish we had more room and could afford to adopt more dogs.
You guys do a wonderful job..
Thank you Angus and Toni

Casper

Casper

We adopted Casper in 2010 when he was 4. He is turning 13 next month. He has bought so much joy and happiness to our lives with his tail wagging and wiggley as he is a little more mature now he just loves to relax and chill. He is the most adorable little man and we love him and could not image a life without him. I want to say a big thank you to DCH Animal Adoptions for letting Casper join our family.

Maggie and Archie

Maggie and Archie

Maggie and Archie (formerly Poppitt and Biscuit) were adopted together 5 weeks ago by my husband and I and our housemates, but it feels like they've been here forever. They now spend their days snuggling together and with their humans, wrestling and stealing food from their dog sister. They are so spoilt and so loved.
Maggie's favourite spot is her dad's computer chair and the bath mat. Archie's favourite spot is wherever you are, or with Maggie. I write this as he's cuddled up beside me, occasionally meowing to remind me to pat him. Maggie is chasing a toy mouse around and demanding her dad throw it for her.
I have a chronic illness and can't leave the house much, so having them, their adopted doggy sister Mirri and my lorikeet Mingo helps me so much. They have all rescued me far more than I rescued them.

Jedda

Jedda

Jedda (originally named Jordan) was advertised in May 2007 as a jack russell cross but quickly grew into a cattle dog cross! She is an amazing doggo, much loved, and very easy to train (will do anything for treats). Thank you! I recommend DCH to many of my friends who are considering a pet.

Charlie

Charlie is so loved and so happy at her new home :)

So happy she went to lovely home where she will be for ever loved.
I keep getting messages and photos she is one very spoilt pup makes all this worth it :)

Roxy

Roxy

Roxy is a wonderful dog and loved by all the family. She lives in Lugarno and holidays every second weekend at the farm in Kangaroo Valley. She loves to run and swim in the creek when it gets too hot. She especially loves kids and will play ball for hours with the kids camping next door. She is known and loved by many.

Harriet

Harriet

Little Harriet came into our family on the 19th of December 2015, she is a beautifully sweet natured girl with an incredible energy streak. DCH animal adoptions gave the utmost respect and care to little Harriet before she came home and I am eternally grateful. Without her, we would be lost. Thank you little terror and thank you DCH!

Rosie & Cupcake

Rosie & Cupcake

We adopted sisters Annabelle & Dimity (previously Rosie & Cupcake) in December '16 as nine week old kittens. Tiny Dimity was one of Karen's (foster Mother) "miracle babies" as she was so underweight and refused to eat on her own. Things have certainly changed as Dimity is bigger than her sister and they seem to have an unbreakable bond. They've both grown into adorable affectionate cats who enjoy going for walks on their leads & Annabelle in particular loves to fetch her favourite toys. Dimity on the other hand is a real water baby and will grab any opportunity to play with water.

They've made a huge difference to our lives and adopting the two of them together was the best decision we've ever made.

Sasha (was rosie)

After losing our 14 year old puppy, Sasha was the perfect pup to join our family. She is a cuddly, active 9 year old dog now and a massive part of our family. Thank you for your wonderful program. Nothing makes you happier than an excited furball welcoming you home. Sasha surfs in the ocean every day and walks the kids to school. Everyone loves her and she is a lovely natured dog. Very well loved x
