Hey guys, my name is Patch.

I'm a big beautiful boy who is currently on the lookout for my new home. I was originally adopted from Lort Smith as a small kitten and have recently returned through no fault of my own. I'm actually really confused why it is that I'm back here and it's making me a little bit nervous and grumpy. I promise once you get to know me that I'll calm down and be full of cuddles and love. The shelter staff here at Lort Smith can vouch for me on this, I've given them some huge cuddles since I've been back! I just need some one who is patient and understands my current confusion with life.

I've always lived indoors so it'd be best if my new home is somewhere I can be kept indoors and lounge on top of a scratching post in the warmth of the sun.

To help me looking my best, I'll need my new carers to brush my luscious locks a few times a week.

If you think I sound like the perfect companion for you, please give the Adoption Hub a call to find out more about me - 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
