Well hi there, my name is Missy.

The shelter staff do not know too much about my history as I was transferred from another shelter only last week and even they did not know much of my background. I remain a bit of a mystery.

A home where I will receive lots of excersise, mental stimulation and obedience training on a daily basis will be best for me.

I am a pretty social girl. I love playing with my human and canine friends. I can go to a home with another canine friend however that dog would have to be quite calm and well mannered.

I should also say that it would be best for me to be rehomed with no small animals as I have a tendancy to chase and I wouldn't want to accidently hurt them.

I would also not be able to live with any small children as I am quite hyper and get excited very easily and may knock them over unintentionally.

If you think I sound like a perfect fit for you, please call the Lort Smith Adoption Hub for more information - 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
