Hi there, my name is Grace (golden girl) and this is Jennifer (black lass).

We are waiting patiently at Lort Smith in the hopes of finding the perfect home! I'm a little older than Jennifer, I love belly rubs and pats. Jennifer enjoy pats for a short time, but she gets quite distracted and needs to be kept busy with toys and puzzles.

We are both very active and love to play fetch and go for runs along the beach, but most of all we love the water! It would be best if we were in a home with no cats or small animals please.

If we sound like the perfect pair for you, please contact the Adoption Hub on 9321 7240 as we'd love to meet you!

Compatibility

  • Good with dogs
  • Suits children 7 plus

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
