Well hi there, my name is Chase,

I was transfered to Lort Smith from another rescue group. Not a lot is known about my history. But one this is for sure - I cannot be rehomed with any small animals as the thrill of the chase (pun intended) is all a bit too fun for me!

I am a super handsome and loveable boy. I would love to share my new home with another canine friend however it would have to be a calm and confident dog that has good obedience, a dog that I can learn from. I do love to play and goof around with canine and human friends alike!

I should also note that I am still very young and have lots more growing to do, I will probably double in size!

The wonderful staff here are teaching me manners and I'm progressing well, however I still have a way to go to be the best dog that I can be!

If you think I sound like the right fit for you, please come and visit me at the Adoption Hub.

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
