Hello there, we are French and Saunders the comedy duo!

Well, not quite but we are looking for a home together. We would miss each other terribly if we were parted.

We can be a bit shy when you first meet us and we like to burrow into our hay. Lots of handling would help us be more social.

The other thing is... we are extremely fussy eaters! We love 'Peckish Small Animal Greens', lucerne hay, and kale. A bit of this, a bit of that. We need to get used to more appropriate food. We are not fond of pellets at all even though they are good for us. Perhaps once we are settled in our new home our appetites will soar.

Do you have room in your heart and home for two little piggies? If so, please call the Adoption Hub and we'll arrange a meeting 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
