*FOSTER TO ADOPT*

Well hi there, my name is Lola.

I should firstly tell you that I am quite unsure of the world and people in it at the moment. It can take me a little while to warm up to new people. Once I get to know you though I am a very sweet and bubbly girl!

I love cuddles and being with my human companions. I have overheard the Adoption Centre staff talking about my new guardian committing to confidence building and slow desensitisation when meeting new people and other dogs. This sounds wonderful as I am ready to show the world my full potential.

It would be best for me to go to a quieter home with no other animals or young humans as I can get a bit worried with loud noises and quick movements.

For now I will be foster with a view to adopt as the Kennels staff will need to remain in close contact for behaviour advice until I settle in.

I'm totally worth the investment of your time - if you think I sound like the girl for you, please contact the Adoption Hub on 9321 7240.

ADOPTING AN ANIMAL

Things to consider before adopting an animal

Adopting an animal is a rewarding experience that will last a lifetime.  But before you adopt a pet please take some time to consider the commitment you are about to make. Sometimes the excitement of pet ownership can overshadow factors that should be considered before adoption. 

Adopting a shelter pet is a lifelong decision that will have a major impact to your normal, everyday life.  Please remember that a cat or dog can live for up to 20 years and they will rely only on you for their wellbeing for their entire life. 

Before you decide, have you considered the following?

  • Do I have time to exercise the dog every day?
  • Do I have time for puppy pre-school and time to socialise a puppy?
  • Do I have at least an hour every day to spend with my cat?
  • Do I have time for obedience training?
  • If renting, does the landlord permit pets?
  • Is the backyard big enough and is the fencing secure?
  • Does the whole family want a pet?
  • Will the pet be allowed inside?
  • Will I have to move interstate or overseas in the foreseeable future?
  • Will I have to move to another rental property where the landlord may not allow pets.

Can I afford a pet? 

Pets are a lifelong monetary commitment, you will need to factor in:

  • Weekly animal food bills and necessities
  • Yearly council registration
  • Monthly medications like heart worm/intestinal worm and flea treatments
  • Annual vet visits for vaccinations and check ups
  • Unexpected vet bills due to accidents or medical conditions
  • Ongoing grooming
  • Boarding fees for human holidays
  • Enrichment like training, toys etc
