Hi I'm Boots.

I was recently surrendered to Lort Smith when my carer was no longer able to look after me.

I arrived with a very sore eye, most likely from a cat scratch which became infected. Luckily I was given the best care and now you can barely tell I had an injury. One of my eyes is just slightly smaller than the other but I think this adds to my uniqueness!

I am a quiet boy who is looking forward to finding a home with someone who leads a calm and relaxed lifestyle. I have lived with a friendly cat- loving dog before so if you have a nice pooch we may be able to get to know one another, otherwise I am happy to be the only one with four legs and receive all the attention.

I love to play with my toys but anything with feathers would have to be my favourite.

I might be a bit shy to start but I'm certain we will become best buds in no time!

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
