Shepherd

Shepherd

Kelpie - male - 8 months

Shepherd is a gorgeous young man, believed to be mostly Kelpie, and is around 8 months old. He has recently come into care and is living with a number of other dogs, and is absolutely perfect with all of them. He loves all people, can't get enough of the love, and is good with children but would be best with those who are a bit older as he is a jumpy young boy at the moment!
Shepherd came from a home where he began to get separation anxiety. Despite being walked, he doesn't cope if he is by himself, especially for long periods. However since being in care, he has been with another dog who has high energy like himself, and has shown no signs of his anxiety. As a result, it would be great for Shepherd to go to a home where he has another high-energy doggo to play with.
Please contact Rod, Shepherd's carer, to learn more about this boy and organise to meet him!

Shepherd has been in foster care since 06 April 2020, for today

Maggie

Maggie

DSH - female - 3 months

Maggie is currently in care with her two siblings, Miss Maple and Harry (see profiles).

She has had a bit of a rough start to life, coming into care at about 4 weeks of age without a mum but that hasn't held her back at all! Maggie is growing into a sassy, vocal and confident cat. She just loves her pats and literally just any attention. She will talk back and parade around her carers feet in an effort to be picked up and cuddled.

Maggie is very fond of mealtimes and always finishes her food. She has a very cute little belly and loves it patted and lightly scratched. She would do great in most homes but would prefer a friend if she is to be left alone for a longer period of time. Maggie is confident around big dogs, dominant bunnies and adult cats so she could possibly make an excellent companion to your existing furfam.

Maggie is microchipped and vaccinated; her adoption fee includes desexing.

If you'd like to meet Maggie, please get in touch. We are taking enquiries now, with a view to arranging any meet and greets later in the month.
NOTE: All visits will be by appointment, and in accordance with prevailing social distancing protocols; currently one person at a time.

Maggie has been in foster care since 24 February 2020, for 1 month

Miss Maple

Miss Maple

Dsh - female - 3 months and 1 week

Please meet little Miss Maple. She came into care with a painful glaucoma and has had a bit of a rough start to life. Once her eye had been removed she learnt how to purr, make biscuits and play with her siblings as she healed.

Miss Maple loves to eat, purr in your arms, and to clean and be cleaned by her siblings. She is doing just fine with her remaining eye and has now learnt to get around and explore her surrounds- and is becoming proficient at swatting at toys.

Since she has been in care with her two sisters (Maggie and Harriet) and three other foster kittens, as well as the resident dogs at her foster home, Miss Maple would do well in a family that has some feline or canine friends to play with and doze on. If you don’t already have a pet of your own, it would be ideal if one of her sisters were adopted with her.

Miss Maple is microchipped and vaccinated; her adoption fee includes desexing.

We are taking enquiries for Miss Maple now, with a view to arranging any meet and greets later in the month.
NOTE: All visits will be by appointment, and in accordance with prevailing social distancing protocols; currently one person at a time.

Her operation has been an expensive one and the cost of Miss Maple's treatment requires additional sponsorship. Her Glaucoma surgery involved removing her massive eye and the vet bill is expected to be a few hundred dollars. Will update with a figure once we have received the invoice. The operation has been a success and she is much happier and purring without the eye

Miss Maple has been in foster care since 23 February 2020, for 1 month

Harriet

Harriet

DSH - female - 3 months

Hullo, my name is Harriet (called Harry for short, as my foster mum didn't realise I was a female feline until recently LOL).

I'm a little bit magic, like Harry Potter and we share a similar "scar". I'm currently in care, growing big and strong with my sisters, Maggie and Miss Maple (see their profiles). I just love exploring and climbing, even on the dogs at my foster home.

I'm the first to make it to the bowls for mealtimes but it's only because I need all the energy to grow and learn, this world is a big place! I also enjoy play, mainly tickling games and chasing ping pong balls. I'm confident and purr often and loudly.

I will need to find a family with respectful older children as I don't like to be picked up all the time. I'm getting used to it though as my foster mum keeps cuddling me. I'd do well in a family that doesn't leave me alone for too long. If you are at work most of the day perhaps you could adopt one of my sisters too?

I'd love to meet you if you think that I'd fit into your home! 🐱

Harriet is microchipped and vaccinated; her adoption fee includes desexing.

Ziggy & Casper

Ziggy & Casper

DSH - mixed - 1 year

Ziggy and Casper are very pretty young cats. They are pure white except for a grey slash on the top of their head.

Ziggy loves life and is always looking for a game to play. She is very affectionate but gets scared when someone new comes around. She has settled very well into her foster home and gets on well with everyone else in the house, cats and people.

Casper is a little bit scared when someone new comes around but when he is left to himself, he enjoys climbing in a lap for a purring cuddle. Casper gets a little bit anxious when he cannot see his siblings and therefore would be better finding a home with Ziggy

They are microchipped, vaccinated and desexed.

Ziggy & Casper has been in foster care since 21 July 2019, for 8 months

Blackie

Blackie

Jack Russell x Fox Terrier - male - 4 years

Blackie (4.9kgs) was recently rescued with his foster-sibling Snowy from a home environment that was no longer any good for them. They are both now living in Sutherland with their foster family, which consists of other dogs and they are loving the socialising!

Blackie follows the other household dogs around, but it is hoped this behaviour will stop once he is desexed.

Blackie will be vaccinated on 7th April, and desexed the following week. After which he will be ready for adoption! It is possible that Blackie and Snowy do not need to be adopted together, but talk to their carer Fiona for more details!

Blackie has been in foster care since 03 April 2020, for 3 days

Snowy

Snowy

Jack Russell X Fox Terrier - male - 4 years

Little Snowy (7.4kgs) was recently rescued with his foster-sibling Blackie from a home environment that was no longer any good for them. They are both now living in Sutherland with their new foster family, which consists of other dogs and they are loving the socialising!
Snowy is very quiet and submissive and craves love. Blackie was the dominant of he two.
Snowy will be vaccinated on 7th April, and desexed the following week. After which he will be ready for adoption! It is possible that Snowy may be fine to go to his furever home without his rescue brother Blackie.

Snowy has been in foster care since 03 April 2020, for 3 days

Polly

Polly

Domestic Short Hair - female - 5 months and 2 weeks

Polly

Polly is a beautiful character who has now learned to express affection in a more acceptable way. Polly is full of energy and curiousity around people, other cats and even big dogs! This pretty little girl wants affection and has now, all but stopped flinching away from pats and rarely “play” bites anymore.

After weeks of patiently patting her when calm and ignoring her when she bites, plus the use of a “Thundershirt” when she seemed hyperactive or jumpy, Polly is now calmer and is allowing pats and cuddles. There is more progress she can make, and with the patience and love of a Forever Family, Polly will respond very well.

Polly would also be a wonderful companion for a cat-friendly dog, as she has shown with our Golden Retrievers. She doesn't mind cuddling up with the other kittens now for a snuggle, although it takes her a few grumpy days to adjust to new foster kittens. Because of her energy level, she would best suit a home without small children.

I think Polly might be best as an "Only Cat" as she is very full-on and may intimidate some cats.

If you are the special person who would be willing to show the patience and give the time to spend with Polly so that she continues to improve, please contact me to arrange a visit. You and your family are most welcome to come and meet Polly.

UPDATE 28/03/20
Miss Polly has now become the front door “greeter” to family, friends and potential adopters! She has such confidence with people now and is curiously checking every new visitor out! She might not be a lap-cat but she makes up for that with her outgoing personality and antics. Polly was called “Cat-Dog” today as she proudly carried a (clean) plastic straw into the room, showing off in front of adopters for another kitten!

Polly is a work-in-progress but she is very much worth the effort! I am currently using a "Thundershirt" on Polly when she seems anxious or hyperactive which seems to be working well, and I anticipate giving this to her adopter.

PLEASE NOTE: Social distancing protocols are currently in place and visits are restricted to only one person via appointment.

You must be over 18yrs old and an Australian citizen or Permanent Resident to adopt from DCH

Polly has been in foster care since 14 November 2019, for 4 months

Jayde

Jayde

DSH - male - 6 years and 3 months

Meet Jayde:

Hi, I’m Jayde, your friendly neighbourhood cat!

I may appear shy at first, but give me a little time and we’ll be best buddies!

I love to play with cats and dogs, but they have to like me too!

I have a white horseshoe mark across my back and people think it gives me good luck because I was bitten by a paralysis tick, but with veterinary care I have made a recovery!

My interests: Cuddles, naps and head scratches.

My bucket list: To bring the whole world good luck with my horseshoe marking.

My ideal match: A caring family who would welcome me with arms wide open.

Let’s hope my lucky horse shoe can find me a forever home too!

I am microchipped, desexed and up to date with my vaccinations, so I'm raring to go!

Jayde's vet expenses for treatment of his tick bite came to $437. If you can help sponsor him please see details below

**DCH would like to say Thank you to Natalia, Davy, Carolyn, Lisette and Hui for their generous donations towards Jayde's vet fees. His additional costs have now been fully covered.**

Jayde has been in foster care since 24 October 2015, for 4.4 years

Netflix

Netflix

DSH - female - 6 months

Netflix is a fantastic isolation buddy! She loves climbing onto your lap for a snooze, and otherwise loves playing with other kitties and cheekily runs right infront of your face when you're reading or using your phone.
Nicknamed 'Adventure Cat' she loves climbing on everything and exploring her home. She has lots of energy to play with her litter mates and loves running around her foster carer's home.

Netflix lives with two other foster kitties (Disney and Stan) and is located in Lithgow, NSW.

Her adoption fee includes her desexing, vaccination and microchipping, as well as her being current with flea and deworming schedules.

All kittens have been well socialised with other cats and have been introduced to dogs, and will adapt well to any home. They all use their litter tray and scratching post, and enjoy a varied diet of kitten kibble, canned kitten food, chicken wings, chicken livers, chicken hearts and fresh meat. It is preferred that they go to indoor only homes (or those with enclosed outdoor runs).

Netflix has been in foster care since 13 December 2019, for 3 months
