Hello, I'm Cappuccino!

I'm looking for my new furrever home. I was surrendered to Lort Smith with Vitamin C deficiency due to poor diet and care. Now that I have recovered I am looking for someone who can provide a great home and enriching diet for my needs.

At first I can be a bit shy but once I'm on your lap, I'm happy to stay. I don't mind hanging out with younger pigs and it would be good to have a friend. I'll need to meet them first though.

If you are looking for a cute little guy to add to your family then please book a time to come and meet me. PLEASE NOTE: I am currently residing in foster care so an appointment must be booked - 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
