Hi there, I'm Tilly Girl!

I was surrendered to Lort Smith way back in November 2017 and right from the beginning I was out of sorts. I didn't understand why I was here...

It's fair to say that my feelings were hurt and I didn't want to make friends with anyone! I admit, I behaved pretty poorly and certainly took it out on the staff.

I was sent out to foster care as I just couldn't cope with the shelter environment. Soon enough, I began to feel safe, I relaxed, I was no longer confused and grew to really like my foster carers.

I am now ready to find my forever home and it has been decided that meet and greets should be conducted in my foster home where it is more relaxed and I will be able to present my 'best self'.

If you understand emotional felines and can provide a stress free environment, then please call the Adoption Hub to schedule a meet and greet - 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
