Hi there, my name is King.

I arrived at Lort Smith needing medical treatment for a condition called Neuritis. Neuritis causes inflammation of the nerves, this caused weakness to my jaw and eyes.

I have been in foster care for a few weeks and now I am on the mend. I can only have soft food and small kibble at the moment. I will need monitoring and another vet check in 6-8 weeks to see how I am going.

I am a very sweet boy ready to find a new home. I am very affectionate and love cuddles. Around other dogs, I am very gentle, so if you have another dog he/she would also have to be a gentle and calm.  

I walk well on lead and I am housed trained.

I am hoping to find a family who is around quite a bit as I do love having company, even if it just means sitting on the couch and watching your favourite show together or a stroll to the beach or park with you. 

If I sound like the boy who would fit into your life and you can also give what I need in return, please give the Adoption Hub a call on 9321 7240 to arrange a meet and greet with me.

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
