Hi there, my name is Billie.

I came to Lort Smith after my last carer could no longer look after me. I've had a tough go at life in my short five years and its left me a little unsure on how to fully trust people.

I've got a lot of love to give, but it will take a little while for me to warm up to you completely. Some tasty food should speed up the process!

Speaking of food, I have a special Dental Diet that I'll need to stay on for the rest of my life. But whats the occasional bit of wet food treats here and there between friends?!

Once you get to know me, you'll quickly realise that I adore head pats, playing with toys and hiding anywhere I can fit my body when I'm tired.

I'd really prefer a home with no other animals or little kids, they're just a little bit too stressful for me. Besides, I'll give you all the love you could ever need anyway!

If you think I sound like the perfect companion for you, please give the  Adoption Hub a call to find out more about me - 9321 7240.

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
