Well hi there, my name is Mintie.

I was surrendered to Lort Smith as my carer could not provide me with the time that I need. You see I get a little upset when I’m left alone at home. I would much prefer going to a home where my new carer either works from home, is home very often or could take me to work with them.

It is best that I go to a home with another dog, I love my doggy friends.

I am an active girl so a home where I will be able to go on lots of adventures would be ideal. I love my walks, playing with my toys, going to the beach and cuddling up on the couch with my companions.

I am a very smart girl so would love to continue learning some more obedience. I just had surgery on my eye so will be adopted out with a medical disclaimer.

If you think I sound like the perfect companion for you, please call the 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
