Jack and Jake

Jack and Jake

DSH - male - 7 months and 1 week

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 an operation 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

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

Jack and Jake has been in foster care since 15 January 2017, for 5 months



DSH - male - 4 years and 6 months

Hey there, my name is Piccolo, but I answer to Pic or Wicky when I don't have my selective hearing on, lol.
So I've been in foster care for 4 years and only ever had one inquiry, which was years ago. It's a bit weird as I'm such a handsome fellow.
I do have a few health issues but if you can help me keep my weight off it may not be such an issue. As many of you might relate I find it hard to lose the KGs, I just love food so much.

Speaking about things I love, I also love to sleep and sleep in foster mums bed snuggled up next to her every night. During the day I find one of my many beds throughout the house. I go through phases of which is my fav.
I don't play much anymore, but if your going to walk around with a shoelace sliding along the floor, I'll chase it.

I don't mind other cats but lately I have become a bit stressed when new foster kittens have come to live with us. I would love nothing more than a furrever home that doesn't have cats coming and going.

I'm not outgoing but I'm also not timid. I will chill in the bedroom when visitors come around and come out to say hi (and see if they will feed me) after a short amount of time. I prefer to come to people in my own time. If your my hooman/s I will love you dearly and come to you straight away (hoping for some food).
Piccolo is excited to meet you and his foster carer can explain his possible health issues.

**Piccolo has had a few medical issues while in care including a blocked urinary tract. His vet fees have come to just over $1,000. If you can assist with a donation to help us cover these additional costs please see below for details.**

Piccolo has been in foster care since 07 March 2013, for 4.3 years



British Bulldog - female

*Sponsorship Needed: So far lilys medical bills are over $1000, if you can help us with that cost by making a donation please contact us!.

Lily came to DCH under duty of care 3 weeks ago from Hawkesbury Pound after she was found as a stray.

Lily is a sweet and beautiful natured girl that had an untreated eye infection that has left her with some vision loss. She will be ongoing her 2nd eye surgery tomorrow.



Domestic Short Hair - female - 2 years and 2 months

Mischief has been in foster care since October 2016, after she was rescued by a good Samaritan after being left for dead with her 7 kittens, unfortunately only 5 kittens survived but they have all now found homes. Mischief could have a little mix of oriental in her as she is a long cat and likes to talk.

It's now Mischief's turn to find her forever home

Mischief was named by her rescuer.

Mischief is a friendly cat and likes attention, being still young herself Mischief loves playing with kitten toys and is often running through her foster carers house playing with toy mice, balls and cat puzzles. Mischief loves interacting with people, and many nights will bring her toy mouse or bird to to her carer - while 'talking' about how clever she is.

Mischief lives with both adult cats and kittens, and warms to them quite quickly. While Mischief lives with 2 puppies they are a little boisterous for her, and while she has settled and has learnt to deal with their antics they can sometimes be a little too much for her.

Mischief would suit a home with either another cat friend or she would be just as happy (if not more so) in a single cat household.

While Mischief does have short supervised adventures outside, she is easily startled and becomes frightened in the outside world and unable to find her back inside, so we would like her to go into an indoor only home.

**Sponsorship Required 2/10: Mischief's kittens have required medical attention for flu and gunky eyes and have vet bills of $150 so far. **

Mischief has been in foster care since 01 October 2016, for 8 months



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



DSH - male - 3 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 1.7 years
