Lary

Lary

Domestic Short Hair - male - 8 months and 2 weeks

Lary is a Georges kitten. He had a very hard battle at the beginning of his life as he was very sick with cat flu. However he is a strong fighter and has recovered and is now doing fantastically well.

He has lot of energy and enjoy company. He likes to follow you around and has a habit of climbing up your legs from time to time. He has had close human company since he was two weeks old and has grown to be a wonderful little kitten.

Medical Conditions
Larry has had chronic cat flu symptoms. He tends to sneeze a lot and in times of stress his cat flu symptoms return. He has been xrays and had nasal cultures and he will probably have life-long nasal congestion. His symptoms can be helped with Doxy tablets.

He has tested negative to the herpes virus as part of his testing on the cat flu symptoms.

Sponsorship needed for his on-going medical treatment.

Lary has been in foster care since 30 October 2017, for 7 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.

Storm

Storm

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

Jack and Jake

Jack and Jake

DSH - male - 1 year and 7 months

These twins are both very easy-going, relaxed kittens that would easily fit into most homes. They love to play and get on well with the other cats, dogs (both large and small) and bunny in foster care. They have had all their vaccinations and are desexed & ready to go to their forever homes.

Why were they rescued: They were dumped/Abandoned outside on a hot summer day when only 2-3 weeks old. They were very lucky to be found and handed in to a vet clinic. The vets called DCH and they were bottle fed and raised.

Medical Notes: Little Jack has had several operations on his left eyelid to stop his lashes rubbing on his eye as they developed in the wrong direction. Jack requires his eyes cleaned once a day with a damp & warm cloth. Jake's eyes have improved as he's grown and his final surgery seems to have been successful with no ongoing problems expected.

Name: Jack and Jake
DOB: 22-Nov-2016
Type: Domestic Short Hair
Adoption Fee: $300
Includes: Desexing, Vaccination, Worming prevention, Microchip.

Petrescue ID#515347

***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 1.4 years

Thor

Thor

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

Jayde

Jayde

DSH - male - 4 years and 5 months

Jayde is a lovely boy who can be quite shy when he doesn't know someone.
He gets on really well with all cats & kittens and loves to rub up against our large dogs and is very friendly with them.
He probably would not be suitable with a dog that wasn't cat friendly as he wouldn't run away if they tried to hurt him.
Jayde has a white horseshoe marking across his rump & this may have given him some good luck when he was recently bitten
by a paralysis tick, but with veterinary care he has thankfully made a complete recovery.

Jayde's vet expenses have come 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 2.7 years
