What's up Doc? My name's Aruba and I'm looking for some new digs to call home. However, I need to tell you about myself first...

When you first meet me and go in for a pat I tend to thump. Once my head is being scratched I will calm down and try to enjoy it. Im very fast and sometimes that can scare people but Im just trying to be funny. I need someone who has lots of bunny experience - no newbies please!

I enjoy my greens and I love a good munch and play in the hay. I love the occasional apple and carrot treat - quite scrumptious! This makes me happy.

Once I get used to you I will be quite obliging with a pat but don't expect too many cuddles. I'm not that kind of gal.

Come to the Lort Smith Adoption Hub and meet me... If you dare...

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
