*FOSTER WITH A VIEW TO ADOPT* 
 
Hi there, my name is Happy and this is my sister Lucky, 
 
We are looking to find a home where we can go together and live the rest of our senior years with our special family. I do see myself as the more confident brother compared to my sister, but we are both generally very active and would love a family who can take us on daily strolls and sight seeing. In our down time we love to just cuddle up and enjoy some good pats on the couch. It would be ideal that we go to a home with no other animals as the thrill of chasing is too tempting for us. Some obedience training and ongoing socialisation would be very beneficial for us as well as someone who is home quite often would be great as we do love our people. 
 
Although Lucky is in perfect health, I am currently on some ear medication and will need my ears rechecked in a couple weeks. Once I get the all clear from the vets, our adoption can be finalised. The staff here at Lort Smith will be more than to explain this to you. 
 
If there is room in your home for us, please give the Adoption Hub a call on 9321 7240 to arrange a meet and greet.

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
