Melanie

Melanie

Maltese - female - 9 years

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 I did have a microchip but the details were out of date.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.

In the meantime, enjoy my pictures and if you're good at selling yourself, why not send an expression of interest to my Foster Carer by e-mail so she can ponder through and pick the perfect match for me.

Please note I am not available yet, pending Vet outcome. Bye for now. Melanie will be going straight to a 2 week trial after her stitches are removed towards the end of May.

Melanie has been in foster care since 02 May 2021, for 2 weeks

Dylan

Dylan

DSH (Siamese or Ragdoll Cross? - male - 1 month and 4 weeks

Dylan is now 8 weeks old but too young to be desexed yet. However, you can sign a Deferred Desexing Agreement (promising to have him desexed at a DCH vet at 12 weeks old), and take Dylan home now. DCH still cover the cost of desexing.

Dylan and his brother Dublin were rescued from Hawkesbury Pound, and have been in DCH Foster Care since 8th April 2021. (Sadly their tiny other brother passed away).

Dylan is a little stunner and has the colouring of either a Siamese or Ragdoll Cross (looking at his brother, Dublin, the cross is likely a Ginger! 🙀). Both Dylan and Dublin were also litter-trained very early. Dylan is a little shy but once picked up for a cuddle, he purrs quite happily.

Dylan is currently being socialised with the residential cats, puppies and dogs, as well as other foster kittens. Dylan will also be confident with people and household noises etc as he is allowed to roam and play throughout my home.

The $225 adoption fee includes microchipping, worming/flea-treatment, first vaccination (of 3) and desexing.

Please use the "Send enquiry email" link below, if you have any questions or if you are interested in meeting/adopting Dylan. If you are renting, please ensure that you have approval for a cat BEFORE you lodge interest.

You must be over 18 years old to adopt an animal.

Dublin and his brother Dylan were rescued from Hawkesbury Pound, and have been in DCH Foster Care since 8th April 2021. (Sadly their tiny other brother passed away).

Dublin is a very playful and cheeky little ginger who can be very excitable! He meows and purrs for attention and loves his food, both wet and dry, and drinks lots of fresh water. Both Dublin and Dylan were also litter-trained very early.

Blueberry

Blueberry

Domestic Short Hair - male - 5 months and 4 weeks

Blueberry came into care with his two brothers, Blackberry and Cookie.
They were only a few weeks old and were bottle-fed and raised inside with other cats and a dog.
Blueberry loves playing with other kittens, with toys and with humans. He enjoys being cuddled and picked up (he has very soft fur!) and is used to being handled by children.

Blueberry is desexed, vaccinated, microchipped, up to date with flea and worming, and ready to be adopted to an INDOOR ONLY home.

He is a good kitty and uses his litter tray and scratching post, and enjoys eating fresh pet meat, chicken wings and kibble.

As of Friday 14th May, Blueberry is located at the PETStock Macquarie Centre adoption enclosure, and is available for cuddles and meet-n-greets during their normal operating hours. He would love to meet your family!

Blueberry has been in foster care since 02 March 2021, for 2 months

Hendrix

Hendrix

Domestic Short Hair - male - 6 months and 2 weeks

Hendrix is a cuddly, smoochy boy! Put him on your lap while on the couch, and he'll roll over, show his belly, and rub all over you while purring loudly.

He arrived into care very scared, but quickly warmed up to the other kitties and the dog at his foster carer's house.
He has never hissed at anyone, and is a very quiet boy - we are yet to hear him 'meow!'

Hendrix would suit a calm, indoor household. He has only briefly met young children, and will likely be ok with them (he doesn't use his claws when playing which is great) however as he is still learning about the world around him, he might take some time to get used to their loud noises and fast movements.

Hendrix uses his litter tray, and eagerly eats beef pet mince, wet cat pouches and kibble. He is easy to get along with, and would love to meet you for a cuddle! He is currently located at the PETStock Macquarie Centre adoption enclosure, and is available for viewing and meet-n-greets, during their normal opening hours.

Hendrix has been in foster care since 13 May 2021, for 1 day

Poppy

Poppy

Domestic Cat - female - 2 months and 3 weeks

Hello! My name is Poppy. I am a beautiful, super sweet calico girl.

Do not let my sweet face fool you, I am the leader of my 3 siblings, super high on energy and love to run, jump, climb and play with ribbons, plastic bags, and shoe laces. Another thing I like to play is you trying to chase me, I will go towards you and when you try catching me I'll run as fast as I can, and will be waiting for you to come chase me.

I love cuddles and kisses and will purr in contentment, although if you try to pat me while I'm in my craziest moments I'll probably start biting your hand trying to play with you...But I also love to cuddle and will sleep in your chest when I want to nap, I am pretty sweet and lovely.

When my foster mum found me and my brothers, I was the sickest of the 3. Cat flu really hit me the hardest. I couldn't breathe properly I had to breathe with my mouth open and my chest made some weird sounds. One of my eyes was terribly infected, it had to be cleaned 3 times a day and put an ointment that stung so badly
and made me cry.

Mum thought I wasn't going to make it, or that I was going to lose my eye because it took many weeks to get better.

But look at me now, I am thriving and have the prettiest big eyes.

I would love to go to a family with more cats so I have someone to play with. I haven't been introduced to dogs whatever those are ... But if they're cat friendly, I'm pretty sure we'll get along well.

There are no kids where I live, but I don't think I'll have a problem with them, especially if they like to play with me and my ribbons and are respectful. As long as my new family gives me lots of love and play with me a lot so I don’t get bored I’ll be happy.

Penny

Penny

Kelpie x Dachshund - female - 6 years and 3 months

Penny came into care after her elderly owner had to move and could no longer care for her. She lived with Ricky (also available to adopt) on 5 acres. We think she and Ricky would be best rehomed together.

Penny’s a sweet, quiet girl who's happy to hang out with you inside, or catch some sun by herself in the yard. She knows basic commands like: 'come', ‘wait’, ‘on your bed’.

Penny can be shy meeting new people, but warms to you once she knows you. She's strong on lead walks and would benefit from further lead training.

OK around other dogs? Yes, controlled greetings have gone well

House trained? Yes

Exercise routine: 2 walks a day

Living arrangements: mostly inside, with regular access to outside. She's used to someone being home most of the day.

OK with kids? Would suggest older kids

OK with other animals? Sometimes reacts to cats on street walks but seems fine with birds that visit the yard.

Food Routine: A mix of dry food and tinned salmon for breakfast. Dry food and raw meat or wet food for dinner.

Penny has been in foster care since 25 April 2021, for 3 weeks

Ricky

Ricky

Cattle dog x - male - 6 years and 3 months

Ricky came into care after his elderly owner had to move and could no longer care for him. He lived with Penny (also available to adopt) on 5 acres. We think he and Penny would be best rehomed together.

He’s a sweet, super smart boy, learns fast and is eager to please. He knows basic commands like: ‘sit’, 'come', ‘wait’, ‘on your bed’. Ricky loves being with you, and will follow you round the house and sit at your feet when you're on the couch.

Ricky can be nervous meeting new people, but is very affectionate once he knows you. He's strong on lead walks and would benefit from lead training - and he loves playing fetch!

Terence

Terence

DSH - male - 6 months and 1 weeks

Terence (the boy in the left of the photo) and his siblings were recently surrendered after spending their whole lives on the streets. A kindly person had been caring for them and had obviously done a great job as within a few days of being in care Terry was coming up for pats and purring and showing his loving, calm, friendly nature.

We did worry Terence would be a bit shy but he's not really like that at all. He is the lovliest boy, who is a full time purr machine, rolls over for attention and loves pats. He's getting used to be being picked up but we don't think it will take long for him to really enjoy cuddles.

He gets on fine with other cats and is super handsome as well (better pics coming soon). Terence would love a home with a couple of people to spoil him with attention and affection and he'll make a lovely lapcat in his special forever home.

Terence has been in foster care since 28 April 2021, for 2 weeks

Meg

Meg

Staffy X - female - 4 years and 2 months

Meg is a very friendly dog who would suit a retired couple. She is house trained and is quite happy to stay inside and sit on your lap. She must be allowed both inside and outside however she would not be suitable in a house with cats. She loves walks and is quite obedient

Meg has been in foster care since 09 May 2021, for 5 days
