Hi everyone, my name is Molly.

I am the sweetest girl you could ever wish to meet. I can come across as a little shy at first but just sit down with me and allow me to see that you mean no harm and I'll be on my back for belly rubs before you know it.

I am a bit overwhelmed here in the Adoption Hub with the dogs barking but I take it in my stride and just try to think about the day when I will find my very own family to love me.

Don't let my age fool you. I am still very active and love my walks - but I don't like those silly harness things! My perfect home would be where I get loads of attention and am welcomed inside to spend a lot of my time.

I do need a little confidence building. But I'm sure I'll settle quite nicely in the right home. Chew toys and balls will most certainly help!

If you think you might like to share some of your love and life with me then look no further. I'll be waiting here and I'm so excited.

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
