Well hi there, my name is Tank (the brindle one!),

My sister Ruby and I were surrendered to Lort Smith as our carer was moving overseas and could not take us with them.

We are both your typical staffy breed. We love nothing more than being with our human friends, having pats, cuddles, kisses and snuggling up next to the heater. 

We are both quite active and will also need some obedience training to learn some manners.

We are not used to being in a home where our guardians are gone for long periods of time, so going to a home where our human friends are home quite often, would be the best fit for us.

Our favourite pastimes are playing fetch, tug of war and going on long walks together. 

I should also say that it would be best for my sister Ruby and I not to go to a home with any small animals, as we do get a little excited and the thrill of the chase is a little too tempting.

If you think we sound like the perfect fit for you, please call the Adoption Hub to arrange a meet and greet - 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
